The Cadillac brand is a division of the US based General Motors Company. The division’s primary markets are Canada, China, and the United States. The following is an outline of 3 Cadillac models:
The Cadillac Escalade
This is a luxury SUV made by General Motors under the Cadillac brand. It was first introduced into the car market in 1999 in response to German and Japanese car-maker competition, with the car going into production just ten months after approval. Its unique name ‘Escalade’ was derived from the military warfare tactic of scaling enemy defensive walls. On to the latest version, the 2014 creation features a 6.2 litre V8 engine that churns out 403 horsepower, laced to a 6-speed Hydra-matic transmission. That said, the fuel economy is on the higher side due to its 3 tonne weight, with statistics putting the consumption to be about 14 miles to the gallon in the city and 18 on the highway. The car’s production plant is situated in Texas.
The Cadillac CTS is a mid-size luxury SUV from General Motors. It was first introduced into the car market in 2002 as a four-door sedan. Currently, the model is available as a 2-door coupe, 4-door sedan and 5-door sports wagon. That said, the latest CTS has the power, looks, and luxury features to rival the best in the segment.
The Cadillac ATS
The Cadillac ATS is a five-passenger, four-door luxury sedan manufactured by General Motors. The car was developed at the car maker’s technical centre in Warren, Michigan and is Cadillac’s smallest car. The 2014 version boasts a speed-sensitive ZF electric steering system and a 6-speed manual transmission for the 2.0 Litre engine with rear wheel drive, among other features.
