Cadillac News: Cadillac and Endurance Racing, Take Two!

Recommended Posts

It has been 14 years since Cadillac competed in endurance racing with the Northstar LMP at the 24 Hours of Lemans. But next year at the 24 Hours of Daytona, Cadillac will once again compete.

The automaker announced today that it will take part in the new Daytona Prototype international (DPi) class in the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship with the Cadillac DPi-V.R. Cadillac's DPi is based on the Dallara LMP2 chassis. Thanks to new regulations, Cadillac and other manufacturers are able to make changes to certain exterior parts to help make their vehicle stand out.

Power comes from a naturally-aspirated 6.2L dry-sump V8 with 600 horsepower. This engine was used in the Corvette Daytona Prototypes. Curb weight is a light 2,050 pounds.

"Cadillac’s V-Performance production models – the ATS-V and CTS-V – are transforming our brand’s product substance, earning a place among the world’s elite high-performance marques. The Cadillac DPi-V.R further strengthened our V-Performance portfolio, placing Cadillac into the highest series of sports car racing in North America," said Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen.

Action Express Racing and Wayne Taylor Racing will field the Cadillac DPi-V.R.

You see...this is where I think Cadillac is spinning its wheels stupidly going nowhere fast!

MONEY WASTED BIG TIME!!!

1. Cadillac's image woes have nothing to do with having a racing heritage...

First of all, Cadillac hardly has a racing heritage. What? Once or twice in their 100 plus year history Cadillac raced in maybe 5-6 races?

2. Cadillac's image woes have something to do with an award that was won by them 100 years ago and them not meeting those standards for quite some time...

The Dewar award...and how Cadillac aint the Standard of the World anymore...

THAT is what plagues Cadillac...not for the lack of racing cars in 2016...

They build a Ciel and build it right...people will come back...

V Series Cadillacs have torn the 'Ring all right...people aren't exactly breaking down the door to own a Cadillac...

Good for them. I wish them luck.

 

Maybe this new class will make the IMSA WeatherTech series exciting. The last few years have been a snore. They've catered to the ugly Daytona Prototypes and they organize the races poorly in many cases. They need to condense GTD and GTLM, keep Prototype Challenge, and put all 3 classes on every venue, rather than splitting some of them up.

I see your point but i think these endeavors are good for brand image and awareness.

Racing is the wrong place to invest money. 

Start with the Snooze marketing program they have, the idiot choices to not commit to the higher end auto price points. The needs to make the existing product lines best in class so that subject BS like MT review of the CT6 is ignored by most everyone.

Time to focus on the auto's you sell and the message that goes along with it not wasted on racing a prototype that will have no connection to the selling inventory.

Guys, relax. Chevy was already competing in IMSA, and this body is on an established chassis. It also uses the engine it has been for several years. GM was going to race anyway, there's no harm in them rebadging their effort as a Cadillac. The development costs for this were very low in the world of sports car racing.

If it was Chevy with it's long history of Corvette racing, fine. But Caddy, should be focusing every dollar on the auto's they sell and a way better marketing message. The money spent on racing could have gone for a new CUE system to upgrade the existing one.

Focus should be at this time on marketing, sales and quality of product. Leave racing to Chevy which has a superior racing history.

OK....I read the article fast and kinda misinterpreted the existing established chassis part of this whole equation.

I still stand by my rant though, minus the waste of money part as really it wont cost Cadillac that much money.

I stand by what I said about racing will not cure what is ailing Cadillac even if racing does indeed bring exposure.

People that might one day buy a Cadillac TODAY and in the NEAR FUTURE dont  care about racing....irony as this whole RWD Arts and Science project when it began almost 2 decades ago was what people wanted THEN for cars and for Cadillac..maybe.

That ship has sailed...that was 20 years ago.

Today, my guy feeling tells me rich folk are aching to buy a modern Cadillac Land Yacht. Not necessarily a wobbly floaty Cadillac and not necessarily a speed demon either...

Escalade SUV extra premium luxury  and Ciel convertible and El Miraj personal coupe and 4 door sedan in my opinion is what is missing from Cadillac rather than an NSX or LFA or SLS type halo car.

The sports cars they have in the V Series cars

The pedigree to legitimize these V Series cars through this racing endeavor wont do too much to bring people into the showrooms...a sexy long sleek 4 door convertible will....and a dealership experience that is akin to a boutique car maker to  complete the package....

Instead of going racing, maybe they should go to a beauty salon for a dealership experience make-over...

 

WITH 1 HUGE EXCEPTION...

 

if Cadillac went ELECTRIC MOTOR racing...THEN it would be beneficial to its image going forward....

TECHNOLOGY.....THAT is what got them the Dewar award a 100 years ago....

Precision engineering was a breakthrough then and was part of technological advancement...

I think racing is a good idea, it helps from an engineering and marketing standpoint.  However they are in a racing series that hardly anyone has heard of, so there isn't that much marketing exposure, and I don't know how much entering benefit there is using a Corvette racing engine.  

They should step up to prime time and join Formula 1.

Joining F1 would be a terrible decision. It's hideously expensive and is being greatly restricted from an engineering advancement perspective.

F1 is an absolute money pit from what I've read. The only reasons teams still do it is pride or some sh!t. At least the technology is finally coming down from them(KERS, small turbo motors). But that's about it.

Depends on how you do and how much you can get from sponsorship.  And it depends on what you want to spend.  Mercedes and Ferrari spend $400-500 million a year on F1, a team like Sauber spends $100 million.   Ferrari gets a payout from F1 every year, that with their prize money is $150-200 million, Mercedes made about $170 million in winnings this year.  So it comes down to sponsorships to make up the difference.  I read the Williams F1 team posted a small profit.   I found a story that Daimler lost $30 million last year on the F1 program, but they think the advertising value more than makes up for it. 

I would imagine any factory backed racing team in any league isn't really in it to make money.  I doubt Audi made any profit in prize money for winning Le Mans all those years, but they got advertising out of it.  So it is really in how you weigh the exposure and the bragging rights that come from racing.

Agree with the comment that Cadillac needs an even higher level of Escalade and having an Escalade V would be a benefit also.

Sadly.. I agree.

US teams aren't known to be winning teams and it would be GREAT if GM/Ford could collaborate and send the best America has but the way F1 is ran... it would be insanity to try and field a team. There seems to be too many politics involved. That and the sport itself just isn't a great sport to watch. I used to love it but the competition just isn't there anymore. It seems every year there is 1 team that will win it all from week 1 and a second team trying to knock them down some. Basically, who spends the most in R&D in the of season, wins.

For what it's worth though, HAAS F1 was very successful for their first season in F1 as an American team. They scored points in their first race ever, which is a very rare feat.

Just look at how the teams are so close to each other and you can see where they consistently run every week. Mercedes 1-2, Ferrari/Redbull for 3-6, Ford India/Williams for 7-9, 11. They just need better competition when it comes to racing..like NASCAR. A lot of people think NASCAR is a lame and boring sport but it's the most competitive form of auto racing there is.

I agree that there isn't a set monetary value to advertising your brand through F1 but of all forms of racing F1 is the most costly with likely the least amount of return on said investment. It would definitely be a way to get their name out there in likely a great way but I don't think they are really set out to lose money when even the best teams still aren't making money.

I don't know for fact but it just seems the way F1 is run that there are other forms of racing that Cadillac could benefit from entering.

You're right, likely Audi didn't profit a dime from winning Le Mans but with a rich history in racing they still have a well known race program and can advertise their winnings even if it is just on pamphlets and signage. That alone just gives companies a little more cache and prestige in their products which Cadillac is greatly missing.

Well here is what I see going on here.

JDN is playing the Audi card here getting into prototype racing.  Audi entered prototypes here and in Europe to promote their Diesel engines.

With that said I expect GM will enter IMSA with this car from Dallara a proven chassis builder and compete using the bullet proof Chevy engine while they sort out the car. They then will move to use a Cadillac based engine to promote their new engines once they arrive in about 2-3 years. to do a Chassis and engine would prove to be a disaster as it was the first time they tried this with the LMP.

Cadillac jumped in the last time way over their head. They had a new chassis and used the N star engine and both proved to be a problem. They never really sorted this out.

Now this car will be able to not only run Daytona and Sebring but also Lemans. This should prove to be a good combination that they could not do before with the Daytona prototype cars.

Chevy is already well established with the GTLM program and they will embark on new C8 Mid Engine in about a year and a half. Being based on a stock platform for the Corvette is very important. Not so much at Cadillac. Making the prototype for Chevy would really have little added value.

F1 is such a mess now and has been for a while. Cost are off the charts and to get results is even more difficult unless you have been at it for a while.  GM really has little need or use for F1.

As for now F1 needs to get their house in order.

Might note two things. The car from the side resembles the Audi prototypes. The nose and tail hints as a little of the styling of the headlamps and tail lamps we may see in the future Cadillac products.

But if Cadillac joins IMSA with this prototype it will be a way to promote the brand globally. Also I see a future with their own powertrains and possibly a hybrid system much like Porsche uses today.

They just need to avoid doing this as the past LMP car as while it was neat they were way in over their heads on that deal. That would have been a major challenge even to the most established teams from Germany.

If you look at many of the Porsche and Audi programs they take proven cars or engines and advance them not blow them up and starting over. The early 917 begat the later 917, Also what they learned carried over to the 936 and 962. Even what they learned there has been applied to the cars they race today.

Cadillac is smart to go to Dallara and use the Chevy engine that has a proven record. Once the car is a winner then drop in the new Cadillac engine when ready.

I could see Cadillac once they sort out the proper EV Engine going with an F1 EV team.

I wonder if NASCAR will ever consider an EV program?

Honestly, Electric would be the way to go of showing true leadership and innovation.

NASCAR will only consider EV when they absolutely HAVE to. I just can't see them considering it before they need to just because the sport has always been around simplification and basic engine on a street car(I know it is nothing like that today as they have standardized bodies and engines so much for competition's sake) but in general, they are the most simple cars racing today. Yes, there are millions into R&D and testing to tweak suspensions and bodywork that they are allowed to. I'm not trying to say that it's cheap and easy for anybody to just field a car but I'm saying that in the grand scheme of racing, they are still the most simplistic cars out there(On the national/international level).

      The 2019 Cadillac XT4 is in production, on their way to dealerships and out for test drives around North America. Reviews have been very positive and people have a variety of love / hate it for the design. Even here on Cheers and Gears various members have a passion on how plastic is being used on the front and rear of the car. 
      With that it is time to take a closer look at some of the tech on this newest CUV from Cadillac. I found sandyblogs.com and the writers Tech Link. Here they do a pretty good job of pointing out the various tech on new auto's. I wanted to bring this into C&G for discussion and see what you all think.
      Tech open for debate:
      XT4 Electro-hydraulic brakes Turbo Charged 2.0L engine Plastic Engine Oil Pan Multipoint Air filter sensors 9 speed transmission with shift by wire Active Twin Clutch AWD system Active Sports Suspension Next Generation Infotainment system Rotary Controller Driver Assistance systems Hands Free power liftgate 22 new specialty tools to work on the auto The XT4 is the first GM auto to use their new brake control system that takes up considerably less room under the hood compared to a traditional Vacuum assisted power braking system. This new brake system is 13 lbs lighter than the old one it replaces. There are new braking sensors, brake pad sensors, wheel speed sensors and a new Power up self test. This makes the braking system a very self aware system for faster response with greater safety.
      We then have the feature heavy 2.0L Turbo 4 motor with AFM (Active Fuel Management), SIDI (Spark ignited Direct Injection), DOHC (Dual Overhead Camshafts), VVT (Variable Valve Timing) with this being the first new engine built on CSS or cylinder set strategy. This engine also uses an electric water pump using a built in local interconnect Network to manage cooling.
      Oil is the Gen 2 full synthetic SAE 0W-20 and uses a hardened plastic oil pan connected to the engine block. This oil pan helps to reduce the overall weight by a few pounds.

      The DIC in the auto is able to manage the multiple air sensor points on when you need to change the air filter.
      The 9 speed transmission is one of the smallest ever and uses electronics to shift gears via input from the EPS (Electronic Precision Shift). This does have a slightly different pattern over the XT5 as it is just a straight up and down  only.
      The AWD twin clutch system is electronically controlled and allows a perfect 50/50 between front and back wheels and yet allows power up to 100% to be sent to the wheels with the best traction.
      The active Sport Suspension adjusts to the road every 2 milliseconds and allows the driver to change between tour, sport or AWD mode at any time.
      Cadillac is rolling out their next generation infotainment system. Higher quality graphics with a much faster more responsive system. faster to touch as well as voice. This system supports NFC (Near Field Communication) for easy pairing of your phone and the system.
      Besides touching the screen or a button, there is a rotary controller now allowing ease in access among the menus and feature function.
      Driver assistance systems is easiest to just post their long list of what this includes:
      Safety Alert Seat Rear Camera Mirror Surround Vision 360-degree Camera Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning Front/Rear Park Assist Rear Cross Traffic Alert Front Pedestrian Braking Forward Collision Alert Forward/Reverse Automatic Braking Head-Up Display Automatic Parking Assist with Braking Final feature is one that Cadillac competitor has had for years, Hand Free power liftgate. When you are within 6 ft of the rear of the auto with the fob in your pocket, you can just swing your foot and it will open the rear liftgate.
      The final listed item is all the new tools needed to work on the XT4. You can review the list on the Tech Link 1.

      To say that today the average auto is a supercomputer would be an understatement. Auto's are being asked to do so much now that many take it for granted what they can do and others wonder why self driving auto's are not already normal here after years of self driving auto's being promised. Part of this is computer tech only now getting up to speed, other reasons is adoption by people. 
      Consumer Reports decided to check out just how good is autonomous driving and is it more of a Semi-automated driving. Consumer Reports has compared the Cadillac Super Cruise, Tesla's AutoPilot along with Nissan's ProPilot and Volvo's Pilot Assist.
      While GM, Tesla and Volvo did not respond to Consumer Reports request for response, Nissan did issue a statement saying that their ProPilot Assist system is available on several models all of which cost tens of thousands of dollars less than the others in the report. While CR has tested the automated driving systems for years, this is their first official in depth testing of the systems. The testing was conducted on both private and public roads to insure real world results. With a system that uses a combination of cameras, radar and other various sensors to map, monitor and react to traffic conditions, each system had its limitations.
      Cadillac Super Cruise only works on divided highways that have been mapped by GM. Tesla Autopilot can work on small, curvy roads with poor lane markings but operates erratically in those situations. Nissans ProPilot did better than Tesla and Volvo for keeping the drivers engaged but just under Cadillac's Super Cruise. Over all Cadillac's Super Cruise was judged to be the best balance of High-tech capabilities with car operational safety and driver engagement.
      Consumer Reports does point out that Super Cruise is NOT GM's Cruise self-driving technology that Honda has just bought into to help bring to market.

      Stop me if you have heard this before; Cadillac President Steve Carlisle is vowing to reboot the brand with six new models beginning with the XT4 crossover and a new advertising campaign that will replace the boring 'Dare Greatly" tagline.
      “We lost our mojo for a long period of time. This time, it is different and we will show you,"
      By Bloomberg's count, this is the eight reinvention of the brand in the past two decades. Despite the brand's best efforts to reverse a shrinking market share and improve their image, they haven't paid off in the U.S. China is a different story where Cadillac sold more vehicles there than in the U.S. last year.
      Cadillac's problems are numerous and familiar; lack of SUVs, too many sedans, and older buyers continue to be the majority of people entering the showroom. Not helping has been the confusing "Dare Greatly" advertising.
      “‘Dare Greatly’ has been a disaster from beginning to end. When you have product that is in many ways better than the competition, you tell people about it. You don’t dare them to take a leap of faith on your cars,” said Bob Lutz, retired GM chairman.
      Carlisle agrees with Lutz on the ad campaign not really going anywhere. He and Deborah Wahl, Cadillac's new marketing boss are working on a new campaign "that will emphasize features and new technologies."
      The upcoming the XT4 will also be playing a vital role, becoming the brand's least expensive model with a price tag of under $35,000. The low price and crossover shape are hoped by Cadillac that it will bring in younger customers.

      One of the most controversial moves during Johan de Nysschen's tenure as Cadillac President was moving the brand's headquarters from Detroit to New York in 2015. Executives at GM explained at the time this would Cadillac to separate from the day-to-day operations of their mainstream brands - Buick, Chevrolet, and GMC. Sources at the time said another reason for the move came down to various GM executive worrying about Cadillac's worldview from Detroit "was too myopic for a brand with global aspirations."
      But Cadillac will be moving out of their space at 330 Hudson Street in New York City back to Detroit. This was revealed by Cadillac's new president Steve Carlisle in a interview with the Wall Street Journal. The reason is that he wants the brand's leaders to be closer to GM’s vehicle design and engineering offices in Metro Detroit, especially considering Cadillac has a number of new and redesign models coming in the next few years.
      “We have a huge number of launches ahead of us. We’ve got to think about how we take inefficiencies out of the communication process between the Cadillac team and the GM partners," said Carlisle.
      Cadillac confirmed the move in a statement to The Detroit News.
      "The move will place the Cadillac brand team closer to those responsible for the new Cadillacs, including design, engineering, purchasing and manufacturing, ensuring full integration of Cadillac’s global growth strategy. Cadillac will maintain a brand presence in New York City with the Cadillac House, an experiential brand center which serves as a public space for events, concerts and collaborative partnerships until longer term brand plans are in place," said the brand.
      Cadillac didn't give a timeframe or where the headquarters would be located. Automotive News reports that  U.S. Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., released a statement saying the headquarters would be based in Warren, MI - where GM has their technical center. A Cadillac spokesman declined to comment.
