2023 cadillac escalade-v parked in the desert

The 2023 Cadillac is a full-size luxury SUV packing 682 horsepower from its 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. It can rip from 0-60 mph in under 4.4 seconds. And it’s also serene, quiet, and comfortable on the inside… until you mash the throttle or blast the 36-speaker AKG sound system. What a silly thing in this […]

The Cadillac CTS-V video I never published

For some reason I was feeling nostalgic about my automotive journalist career this morning. I started poking through some old video and photo content and came across a gem that we never published. But first, some more nostalgia. Right Foot Down I got into this line of work for the same reason I lot of […]

Review: Cadillac XT4 – the Substandard of the World

Standard of the world. The Cadillac of things. The name Cadillac used to be synonymous with being the best. That is exactly, if cautiously, what I was hoping for from the Cadillac XT4, the Crossover Touring 4, a relatively new small CUV from the brand. Truthfully, I was not sure what to expect. I have […]

Cadillac CT6 Platinum: The Blackwing is gone too soon

Blackwing is one of the coolest names in the automotive world. And on the Cadillac CT6, specifically, it’s already dead. Cadillac spent millions developing a brand-specific engine in the Blackwing. And then decided to kick it to the curb. That’s a shame because the 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V8 is pretty damn intriguing. Is it perfect? No. […]

2018 Cadillac Escalade – Premium Luxury At The Race Track

A few weeks ago Cadillac asked if I would like to attend the IMSA race at Laguna Seca as a guest of theirs. They offered me my choice of loaner car for the weekend, and I had already intended to go to the race anyway, so I agreed without hesitation. I chose the venerable Escalade […]

Cadillac ATS-V: A Better BMW

[youtube][/youtube] Yes, Jeff drove it on the race track already. That doesn’t show what it’s like to live with the new Cadillac ATS-V though, so I sucked it up and took on the task of playing with the car as a daily driver for a week. Short straw draw, but I’ll manage… What Cadillac have […]

First (Track) Drive: 2016 Cadillac ATS-V

Video Review: 2013 Cadillac ATS 2.0TA real American hero

For what seems like eons, if you wanted a compact luxury sedan that was also sporty, there was no need to look anything other than a creation of ze Germans. Take your pick because it’s either going to wear a three-pointed star, roundel, or a quartet of rings. Finally, however, there’s a new party person […]

The Hooniverse – Night time fun with the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe

A V badge is one of my favorite emblems on a car. It means I’m dealing with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine and rear-wheel-drive. It means I’ve got the keys to one of Cadillac’s finest. It means I better get off my ass and go do something fun… so I did. The V badge in […]
