2014 Cadillac XTS and CTS as well as 2014 Buick Regal and 2014 Chevrolet Impala have all earned five stars given by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) via their rating program on front crash prevention. These General Motor vehicles are all considered industry leaders when purchased with GM’s available Front Automatic Braking system. This important safety technology is not only available on GM’s luxury Cadillac products, but also on the more mainstream Chevrolet and Buick vehicles.

The IIHS previously recognized GM for front end safety, bestowing its highest safety rating – the 2014 Top Safety Pick +, on the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, and Chevrolet Malibu. The main contributor for this high score was the available forward collision alert. The Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain are the only midsize SUVs out of the nine evaluated to earn “Good” ratings in the IIHS’s small overlap front crash test.

2012 Chevrolet Camaro V6 330 hp? - Muscle Cars BlogThe new 2012 Camaro might get a few extra horses under the bonnet if what Camaro5 reports is true. The new horsepower will find its way into the V6 powerplant for the sports coupe version. The new engine, badged “LFX”, looks like a significant improvement over the already powerful LLT V6 found in LS and LT Camaros.

The mill is described as “LFX 3.6L SIDI, DOHC, VVT, E85 MAX, Alum GM”, so it should still displace only 3.6-liters, just like the current V6 Camaro. It’s not yet clear if this is the standard model or some kind of high-performance race car for the road, but we like the figures either way. It even comes packed with advanced features, like Spark-Ignition Direct-Injection, Dual Overhead Cams, Variable Valve Timing, and E85 capability. Read more!

Cadillac Coupe De Ville Heads for SEMA 2011

Cadillac Coupe De Ville Heads for SEMA 2011 - Muscle Cars BlogA Harrington Park couple spent six years customizing a Cadillac that is one of only two Australian creations to be among the top 50 at the world’s biggest custom car show. Dubbed Wild Cad, the car is currently on its way to participate at the Showcase of Kustoms Motorama and will also be attending the SEMA show this November.

Mario and Catriona Colalillo, creators of the Wild Cad, hope for their one-off 1955 Coupe De Ville to grab the D-elegance category.

The Caddy boasts a 7.4-litre 454 big block Chevy engine powering a Turbo 400 transmission and 9-inch rear end, a ‘55 Desoto grille, and fully exposed chassis rails. Inside, the Wild Cad features Thunderbird seats and a center-mounted ‘59 Chevy instrument cluster. The special exterior paint is estimated at AU$200,000, bornrich.org reports.

“I had people ringing up saying: We can’t get him (Winfield) – how did you get him to come to Australia?” stated Colalillo for the local media. “There’s a lot of features on the car that are out of the ordinary. I’m still getting used to having free weekends. You have got to throw everything at it in the end. It’s like building five cars at once.”

He also estimated he had spent thousands of hours on building the car over the six years period. “The last two years got to be a bit of an obsession,” he said.

The Colalillos hope to sell the Wild Cad while traveling the custom car circuit, as ZZ Top lead singer Billy Gibbons, basketballer Shaquille O’Neal, and Metallica’s James Hetfield have already expressed their interest in the car.
