Cadillac XT4 — Charming small crossover

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Many luxury brands offer a full range of crossover sport utility vehicles to meet the needs of virtually every customer. BMW has so many variants it's hard to keep track of the number. On the other hand, Cadillac is woefully lacking a comprehensive crossover lineup, but plans to rectify its dearth of SUVs with an onslaught of new product over the next few years. The first has reached showrooms in the form of the compact XT4 and it's a good place to start because the small luxury crossover segment is one of the hottest in the business.

Cadillac CT6 — All-American luxury sedan

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The Cadillac CT6, currently the brand's flagship sedan, dwarfed by the mid-20th Century Cadillac behemoths — but large by today's standards — has a well-controlled, but slightly firm ride; a quiet interior befitting top-drawer luxury; and the latest in automobile technology.

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Cadillac offers a compelling reason to buy American if you are looking for a mid-sized luxury sedan — meet the crisply styled CTS that offers an excellent combination of performance, handling, passenger comfort and technology to take on the German and Japanese brands.

Cadillac XT5 — Keeping up with the competition

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Cadillac is in the process of reinventing itself as a contemporary luxury brand, and the cornerstone of its effort is the compact/mid-sized crossover, which has been its best seller over the past few years.

Cadillac Escalade ESV — Big luxury

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The Cadillac Escalade is a bit of an anomaly in the new global Cadillac scheme of things. The big body-on-frame SUV is like the unloved aunt who is tolerated in the family circle only because she is so popular and influential in the community beyond her small world of relatives.

2016 Cadillac CT6

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Cadillac’s highly anticipated CT6 large flagship luxury sedan is just now beginning to show up in dealer showrooms. The CT6 is about the same size as a BMW 7 series and is intended to reassert itself as a worthy alternative with large, super-luxury sedans like the 7 series, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Lexus at a lower price point.

Cadillac ATS Coupe — More than good looks

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

We have become less fond of the two-door coupe style as the years rolled by because the older we get the more doors we want — and need. That makes it's easier for our grandchildren to access the rear seats as well. Climbing into a cramped back seat is simply no longer in the cards.

2015 Cadillac Escalade

HOUSTON — It’s no big secret that the Escalade from Cadillac and the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban SUV’s share the same roots.  That’s a common occurrence in the automotive world.  Historically, critics have asserted that there was not enough difference between the Cadillac and the Chevy products to justify the price spread.  Finally, with this latest generation of the Escalade, those concerns can be put to rest.  The new Escalade is now its own vehicle.

Cadillac ELR — A stunning take on frugal driving

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The Cadillac designers should be commended for turning the Cadillac Converj show car into a production vehicle. Design traits include a steeply raked windshield; long, sloping roof pillars that taper back into the trunk; and a character line that rises steeply from front to back into boomerang-shaped taillights. It's all set off by stylishly painted 20-inch alloy wheels. Meet the 2014 ELR.
