Strengths and Weaknesses: 2016 Cadillac ATS-V vs. BMW M3/M4

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Turn 11 is a tight hairpin, and the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V accurately turns in, clips the apex, and powers out before rocketing down the long back straight, all 464 horses from its ferocious twin-turbo V-6 galloping madly. The head-up display briefly flashes 145 mph before the powerful Brembo calipers clamp down in anticipation of the fast-approaching tight left-hander. It was through this section at Circuit of the Americas (CoTA) in Austin, Texas, when it first hit me: BMW should be afraid, very afraid. The new Cadillac ATS-V is that good.

The Feud Lives On: Cadillac and Lincoln

2015 Cadillac Escalade vs. 2015 Lincoln Navigator Comparison

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Just like the city from which they hail, the 2015 Cadillac Escalade and 2015 Lincoln Navigator have been renewed and rejuvenated. Big, truck-based luxury SUVs faced just as rocky a road as the Motor City over the past 10 years, yet both the Escalade and the Navigator got a new lease despite all the odds. Pricey gas, economic recession, and vehicular downsizing be damned, full-size luxury SUVs are here to stay.

2016 Buick Verano Debuts in Chinese-Market Form in Shanghai

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - China is Buick’s biggest market, so it’s no surprise that the automaker revealed its redesigned 2016 Buick Verano compact sedan at the Shanghai auto show this week. Though an updated Verano bound for the U.S. may not look exactly like this Chinese-spec version, the car’s overall styling and technical details aren’t likely to change much when the new model reaches our shores.

2016 Cadillac ELR Gains Power, Goes Down in Price

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - It’s hard to know whether the Cadillac ELR’s slow sales were caused by this plug-in hybrid’s astronomical price or by its lackluster powertrain shared with the Chevrolet Volt, but Cadillac has remedied both issues with a refreshed 2016 Cadillac ELR that’s less expensive, better equipped, and more powerful than before.

In April, Hennessey announced plans for an upgrade package for the already-potent 2016 Cadillac CTS-V that will boost power output to an astounding 1000 hp.
