    October 2018: Ford Motor Company

    IRS comes to the Escalade next gen.. to answer a question that no buyer of a $100K+ SUV ever asked as they were picking up their latte from Starbucks or the delicate flower of a woman they chose to f@#k around on.. The most off-road these vehicles see is when the blacktop covered roads of this great country get blanketed with snow.. My Yukon, along with its sisters and cross town cousin from Ford have no problem with that. If GM wanted to beat all of the other SUVs at OFF-ROAD.. they really wouldn't have to go far to do it. Hell.. the ZR2 Colorado is a beast.. and from what I'm hearing.. who knows.. they may create an SUV off this

    Cadillac EV Halo Leaked?

    LIke the Bolt (and Volt) this has remote start to probably get the car warm inside etc.. the retractable roof button like the Vette.. the hatch button and what might be a power hood or additional storage button. This could be EXACTLY what GM should be doing with a car like this to spread and amortize costs faster.. like VW Group does with the R8, Gallardo/Huracan and Italdesign Zerouno. Only having the C8 as the sole vehicle, especially considering the FE C7 is supposed to live on will be a profit disaster. Not to mention Cadillac needs this more than Chevy does

    True.. but the Volt has something that the Model 3 doesn't have.. an ALTERNATIVE propulsion system that is easy to re-invigorate within about 3 minutes. And make no mistake I have said the same thing about the Bolt. Personally I am not on board with complete EV line-ups until the infrastructure to "fill-up" is in place everywhere a gas station is or at least as many. Range anxiety is real if for no other reason than some people simply forget. With the petrol situation its as easy as grabbing a damn jug.. hell a 2 liter coke bottle, walking 2 miles and filling it up with enough to get U to the next fill.. far as I know.. they don't make 2 mile long extension cords.. I stand by this even if Caddy decides that EV cars are a go. I think its a mistake to not keep a CT6 Plugin on the menu.. as much as I think Chevy should've long since expanded the VOLTEC fleet

    Not true.. the Volt is 3.3 inches shorter than the Cruze but is almost identical in wheelbase, and actually wider than the Cruze

    The Volt is the Cruze.. so for almost 60 miles... the option is there

    2019 Cadillac XT4 showroom impression

    Lexus RX + LX sales = 83,298 Cadillac XT5 + Escalade sales =74,282 Mercedes GLE + GLS =49, 022 Cadillac adding a GX competitor (XT6) and a NX Competitor (XT4) will most likely see them doubles sales of CUVs, equaling that of Lexus.. confirming what I've been saying all along.. U can't win a sales race with not enough product. Cadillac should MIRROR Chevy in terms of available configs IMO, just as a luxury brand, and except the pick-ups. Still bewilders me who Chevy has an EV, a Plug-In, two convertibles, two coupes, and Caddy has no EV, one Plug-in, no converts and one coupe.

    Noted.. I am absent these days far too often to know everyone's quirks like I did at MT and GMI. I will say that U.. U.. I remember making a similar argument about the backseat space in an ATS tho.. When the CTS sat on the lot right next to it. U did the same thing with the Malibu pre-redo with the Impala and SS sitting right on the lot too.

    Actually. considering the absolute FACT that the Escalade is the go to luxury SUV, and the XT5 is I believe the #2 selling mid-size Luxury CUV.. despite the rhetoric that some try and kick.. Cadillac is really not bad off at all in CUV/SUV sales. Introducing the more up to date, until 2020, XT4 to tack ANOTHER demo.. because size matters.. was ALWAYS a no-brainer, and road to higher brand sales. Furthermore.. its not like Cadillac doesn't have the alternative sizes. If the XT4 is too small for these fat ass Americans U speak of.. then LO AND BEHOLD.. there is an XT5 or Escalade.. or upcoming XT6? So if your tall ass needs a larger back seat than the XT4, and EVERYONE of its competitors can offer your huge ass.. buy the larger fuckin vehicle sitting on the lot. I have yet to hear this lunacy over at Buick, GMC, or Chevy happening when some one is trying to buy a sized product. No sales man worth a grain a shit has a customer come in.. get into a Terrain.. say they need something larger.. and he doesn't show them the TWO.. count 'em two Acadias or a Yukon

    No doubt.. I thought the same thing back in '08 when she was in the Dark Knight. Its those big ass floppy eyes.. her and her crazy looking brother

    I joke with U not.. she is gorgeous.. perfect, no matter what age she is. If she is GenX.. I will point out yet another time that my Generation is the youngest looking generation above 35 I've ever seen. Baby Boomers and Greatest Gens looked 50 even when they were 20 LOL... Hell.. there is this chick on James Franco's HBO "The Deuce" who plays an 22 year old... and she's fuckin 40. At one point I was watching the show just to see here LOL.. now I watch it cause its an absolutely great show

    the 2.0L thing is a strong vote.. and I still keep seeing things about it being coupled to a EV motor for more power and efficiency. They are apparently working on that for even the Camaro as well. To the $5 door handles.. whatever the situation was.. the door handles on the CTS, CT6, Escalade, XT5, XTS.. are fuckin sweet. The cool factor is evident every time I unlock my ride and people swoon around that basic shit like "How did they do that?" Too Bad I may be without a Cadillac for about a year.. as I see the intro of the CT5 as a reason why my CTS-V value will drop and I'm considering selling it within a few months. That being said.. my next Caddy will probably be the CT6-V around end of the summer of '19.. and when I hit 150K miles on the Yukon,.. the 2020 or 2021 Escalade

    Cadillac XT4 V-Sport and a Mystery Car Show Up on Cadillac's Website

    Its most likely a go.. for 2020 and we'll see it at the upcoming Autoshows. As I said yesterday.. the 2.7L Turbo or an EV combo would be sweet.. if Cadillac doesn't want to use the LGW 3.0L TT. Personally I think Cadillac may just be getting ready to go all in.. in terms of performance.. by offering all of its VSports and VSeries as AWD. I have said it to many a person when asked about the driving of my CTS-V.. It is PHENOMENAL.. but U must have discipline on the throttle at both take off and even at higher speeds because of the traction. Even more so in my Z06 due to the weight. AWD will remedy this.. and most likely put its acceleration times below that of the Germans, including Porsche, due to the massive torque and power..coupled with the weight advantage that GM has been engineering into every one of its vehicles over the last 5 years

    Yes... the goal for all of GM is to consolidate platforms as well as powertrains to work thru out. With Cadillac the profit is there to justify the cost

    Well.. I can tell U that after having an XT5 for 2 days last week it runs very well with the 310HP 3.6L, but.. had it been packing the 3.0L TT or 3.6L TT I would have been all grins. That being said.. if the XT4 has the 4 Turbo in it.. I would like it to be the 2.7L or an EV coupled 2.0L. If Cadillac does see it as cool.. and goes with a TT V6.. who's gonna be upset? My issue with Cadillac in general is that the only REAL all encompassing engine line up resides in the CTS and now CT6.. the rest of the line up is simply incomplete. Think about it... CT6 has 2.0L 270HP; 3.6L 335hp; 3.60LTT 404hp; 4.2LTT 550HP; Hybrid that is a PERFECT engine line-up.. CTS has 2.0L 270HP; 3.6L 335hp; 3.6LTT 420hp; 6.2LSC 640hp.. that is a PERFECT engine line-up.. only missing the hybrid or EV ATS had a nice line up.. with exception to the buyer not being able to opt for a LT1 V8 instead of the LF4 TTV6. Why can't these be the choices avail for all of their vehicles. Even the Escalade in some capacity, not necessarily these particular engines?
