First Drive: 2019 Cadillac XT4

SEATTLE, Washington — We’ve been herded into a ballroom at the Four Seasons hotel in Seattle, where we’re listening to Cadillac reps explain the why behind their new ‘Y’ trim-level strategy, augmented by a fancy PowerPoint presentation. Listed on the left arm of the slide’s Y graphic are the Premium Luxury and Platinum trims, with Sport and V-Series on the right. At the base of the Y is the Luxury level. Y should you care? Because the 2019 Cadillac XT4, the marque’s all-new compact crossover we’ve come here to drive, represents the first implementation of Cadillac’s Y approach, that’s Y.

Cadillac says it’s aiming the XT4 at the entry-luxury, compact crossover set (think Audi Q3, BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Volvo XC40, etc.), though it feels at least a half-size bigger than any of those vehicles. The

ScienceLogic brings AI to IT operations

Dave Link says he founded ScienceLogic because of his belief that after working in IT operations for much of his career he considered the discipline to be broken.

“It was broken very badly because you often had each technology discipline – network, the security vertical, the database vertical, the systems administrator, the storage layer — with its own tool,” the ScienceLogic chief executive told Computerworld.

“What I believed was, operationally, that wasn’t fast enough. Because you really needed to see it all in one place, contextualised in terms of what related to a [particular] service,” the CEO said.

Enterprises’ ops teams are now often faced with an unwieldy mix of cloud services, frequently from multiple providers, and on-premises gear, as well as new application deployment models, such as containers, and a massive growth in data sources.

“When we started the company I wanted to create a

2019 Cadillac CTS

The 2019 Cadillac CTS is the brand’s midsize sedan. The trims range from luxury to sporty, with starting prices similar to those of competitors. But the CTS has more features and distinctive styling both inside and out. There are two versions of the CTS, too. Though both are sporty, the CTS, CTS Luxury and CTS Premium Luxury trim levels are geared for luxury. The CTS V-Sport, on the other hand, skews toward sporty without crossing into the positively bonkers realm of the CTS-V.

The CTS is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (268 horsepower) that sends power to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is an available option for those looking for additional traction. The standard wheels are 17 inches in diameter, although larger wheels are available as options.

Other manufacturers tend to

Hennessey pits its 805-HP Cadillac Escalade against the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

Follow Viknesh

Add to circle

Hennessey Performance Engineering of Sealy, Texas recently pitted its HPE800 Cadillac Escalade against a stock Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Before you cry foul about this being an unfair match-up, note that the Jeep is a mid-size SUV whereas the Cadillac is a full-sizer.

The Jeep is also powered by the infamous Hellcat engine, a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 delivering 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. Mash on the pedal and you’ll be traveling at 60 mph after just 3.5 seconds and passing the quarter mile after just 11.6 seconds.

The Cadillac also features a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8, albeit one built to Hennessey’s HPE800 spec. The resulting output is an incredible 805 hp and 812 lb-ft. Hennessey

QOTD: Can You Hit ’em Where They Ain’t? (Bottom of the Barrel Edition, Pt. 1)

This week marks the first of a three-part QOTD series where we’ll discuss everyone’s favorite topic here at TTAC: used cars. And for this first installment, we’re on a tight budget.

This week’s post about the current state of the used car market painted a grim picture of things. The growing supply of off-lease vehicles, which was anticipated by people who think about supply and demand, is meeting with greatly increased demand. Used car prices are thus on the rise, not helped by new car transaction prices that recently increased to a heady average of $36,848.

All this puts pressure on the used car buyer. But are there still gems out there? As buyers ford through the rough and sometimes dirty waters of the classified ads and used car lots, where should they turn? We aim

Resto-mods popular with bidders at Mecum’s Denver auction

Mecum Auctions posted $10 million in sales with a 75 percent sell-through rate at its recent collector car sale in Denver, where the top-seller was a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda convertible that brought $181,500.

Prices reported include buyer’s fee.

The ’70 ‘Cuda wore Plum Crazy Pearl paint and was powered by a 528cid, 650-horsepower aluminum Gen 2 Indy Hemi V8 linked to a race-prepped 727 automatic transmission. 

’68 Ford Mustang packs a 650-horsepower punch

Resto-mod muscle proved popular with bidders as a 1968 Ford Mustang brought $143,000 thanks in part to a restoration that included the insertion of a 427cid, 650-horsepower Dart V8 and 5-speed Tremec manual shifter.

Muscle did well at the sale, but the No. 3 seller was a 1966 Volkswagen 21-window Samba bus that sold for $118,250.
