1983 Cadillac Cimarron

Without going to the link, I would guess it was originally purchased by an older conquest customer coming out of a SAAB 99 or something equally quirky. High curiosity factor with this one, at least for me.

WOW :yikes: First impressions are Clean and a soft spot for their attempt. After looking at the photo's at the link, I would not touch it as that is a rust bucket about to die. Amazing it is that clean inside. I figure the dealership or the original owner before trading it in cleaned it up to get best trade in value. The rust and cracks make me think it will just vaporize on impact with a Detroit pot hole.

It does have an am-fm radio at least.

Yes, really. Look again at the lower button. On those, IIRC, you pushed the button to toggle between AM and FM. You can see a close-up photo of the radio at the link.

      Cadillac will be unveiling the CT5 sedan at the New York International Auto Show next month. 
      The CT5 is build on the next generation of GM's Alpha platform and will come in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations.  Power will be provided by either a 2.0T 4-cylinder or 3.0 Twin-Turbo V6.  Both engines will send power to the wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission.  The CT5  will offer Luxury and Sport trims.
      In a video series called "Sensory Symphony", Cadillac slowly peels back the specially design camouflage film to trigger an ASMR response in the viewer while slowly revealing the car. This is to bring awareness to the CT5's auditory experience with active noise cancellation and other sound optimizations. 
      The Cadillac CT5 will be built at GM's Lansing Grand River plant.

      The saying goes there is no replacement for displacement, but at Cadillac that is no longer the case when it comes to the trunk badges.  Starting in 2020 on the XT6, Cadillac will drop the engine displacement badge from their vehicles. Instead, they will use a number that represents torque in newton-meters and rounded up to the next number that ends in 00 or 50.  Turbo models will get a T, while V-series models will retain their V in place of the number.
      For the XT6, that means its 271 lb-ft of torque converts to 373 newton-meters and then gets rounded up to 400. 
      Once the scheme rolls out to other models it could look like this:
      XT4 2.0T - 350T
      XT5/XT6 3.6 - 400
      Escalade 6.2 - 600  (current model, future model could be different)
      ATS/CTS/CT6 2.0T - 400T (current model, future CT4 and CT5 could be different)
      ATS/CTS/CT6 3.6 - 400
      CTS 3.6TT - 600T
      CT6 3.0T - 550T
      If the V-series cars used the numbers, it would look like this:
      ATS 3.6 TT - 600T
      CTS-V 6.2 - 900(S?)
      CT6-V 4.2T - 850T
      Cadillac President Steve Carlisle said "We're not talking about displacements anymore. [The new badging's] purpose is to communicate power and performance, not just for internal combustion engines, but also for other propulsion."  This is a nod to Cadillac's first all-electric model coming in 2022. Cadillac has not yet revealed what letter the electric vehicles will use. The CT6 PHEV still sold in China could potentially wear a 600 badge.
      This move by Cadillac resembles Audi's move to a horsepower based naming scheme used in Europe.
      The 2020 Cadillac XT6 will be built in Spring Hill TN and will go on sale later this year.

      Currently, the least expensive way to get into a 3-row Cadillac was to pony up $76 kilo-dollars for a base Cadillac Escalade. Even then, check too many boxes on the option sheet and the price could easily head well into the $80k range.  When the Cadillac XT6 hits dealership later in couple months, that line in the sand will fall by over $20k.
      Cadillac will begin taking orders on the XT6 later this month with a base price starting at $53,690. That gets you a front-wheel drive Premium Luxury model.  The XT6 Sport with standard all-wheel drive starts at $58,090 (including destination charge for both).
      All XT6 models are powered by a 3.6 liter V6 producing 310 hp and a 9-speed automatic transmission shifting power to the wheels.  Active fuel management and Start/Stop are standard.  The Sport model features standard Continuous Damping Control suspension.
      You can read more about the Cadillac XT6 from our coverage of the reveal at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.
