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.

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

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.

QOTD: What’s Your Sketchiest Used Car Buying Experience?

For most people, not having a brand new car sort of budget can mean scrounging around on AutoTrader, Cars.com, eBay, or even the ever-professional Craigslist for used vehicles. The resulting experiences end up shaping the future of our car ownership, our finances, and perhaps our legal situations in some cases.

Today we want you to know about your sketchiest used car buying experience.

I’ve always bought used cars; it’s a fun little (expensive) game to play. Use your skills and knowledge, and you might not get burned. Let someone else take that depreciation hit! Totaling up the cars I’ve owned thus far, my count is 11. All were used and at least five years old at the time of purchase, and only two came from dealers. My sketchiest car purchase story comes

10 ’90s Cars That Are Still Totally in Demand or Whatever

NEW YORK (MainStreet) – Sorry, Millennials, but even the cars your parents shuttled you to school in are being left behind.

There are still a whole lot of people looking for 1990s cars, but that number decreases with each passing year. Mark Williams, analyst for Kelley Blue Book, did some digging and found that vehicles from the ’90s are on a consistent decline, which he doesn’t find at all surprising.

“As new model years are introduced to the market, the older model years are being suppressed and yield less interest,” he says. “For example, the most shopped 1990s models are 1999, 1998, 1997, respectively.”

They’re not exactly Those ’90s Cars, either. Williams pulled up the Top 25 cars from the 1990s searched on Kelley Blue Book and came up with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, Jeep Wrangler, Ford F-150, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Mustang and Toyota Corolla among the
