Used 2014 Cadillac XTS for Sale

2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport

The New Name for Fast
This is the first of Cadillac’s new Vsport models, which aim to bridge the gap between the brand’s standard offerings and its ultra-high-performance V-Series lineup. In this case, Vsport means an upgraded V6, standard all-wheel drive and a retuned suspension.

And this isn’t just any V6; it’s a 3.6-liter powerhouse that develops 410 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. General Motors engineers borrowed heavily from the tricks they learned from cars like the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 in the Camaro ZL1 and Cadillac CTS-V.

This engine is 90 percent new compared to the conventional 3.6-liter V6, and is structurally jacked up everywhere to handle the big boost. The net result is that there’s brutal shove on top from nearly any speed. The torque drop-off at the 5,600-rpm redline is fairly pronounced, but that’s of little consequence. By that time, the

Used 2014 Cadillac CTS for Sale

2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport

5 Series in Its Sights
In the past the CTS was a ‘tweener, larger than a BMW 3 Series but smaller than the larger 5 Series. With the entry-level ATS now in Cadillac’s portfolio, GM engineers had the freedom to size and position the 2014 Cadillac CTS more squarely against the 5 Series. Thus the 2014 CTS is larger than the outgoing generation, stretching 4.2 inches longer and riding on a 1.2-inch-longer wheelbase. It’s longer, in fact, than both the 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, with a wheelbase that’s right between the two.

Whereas the current 5 Series is derived from its larger 7 Series brother, the 2014 CTS is built on the lighter ATS platform. The result is that the 5 Series is porkier than it should be, and the CTS is more efficient with its mass. It’s hard to describe the

Used 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe for Sale

What’s the Big Deal About a Two-Door ATS?
Calling the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe simply a two-door version of the ATS is selling it short. Although its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and optional 3.6-liter V6 are the same power plants available in the ATS sedan and the coupe’s chassis is much the same, the sheet metal of the ATS coupe is almost all-new, with the hood and headlights essentially the only carried-over exterior parts.

Cadillac made a big effort to visually lower and widen the two-door ATS, giving it a meaty look that the sedan lacks. The 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe is 1.4 inches wider and an inch lower than the sedan and it’s quite noticeable. Maybe even more striking is the 0.8-inch increase in track, the distance between the wheels on the same axle.

With fender flares sensuously stretched over that spread-out rubber, the ATS coupe instantly imparts the impression of

Wayne Police Arrested Three Bloomingdale Residents on Drug Charges

Wayne Police arrested three Bloomingdale residents for various drug charges on Aug. 1, officers reported.

Officers saw a white 1998 Cadillac DeVille having trouble maintaining lanes on the busy Route 23 at around 3:15 p.m, police said.

When police stopped the vehicle at the Pequannock border, they noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle, police said. They also observed an altered Arizona Ice Tea can and suspected marijuana in the center console of the vehicle.

The driver, Jennifer Shaw, 19, was accompanied by a front seat passenger Brandon Dionisio, 19, and a rear passenger Laura Dionisio, 62.

When they searched the vehicle, police reported two marijuana grinders in the passenger compartment, a filled marijuana pipe, a small scale with marijuana residue on it, five large sandwich bags filled with suspected marijuana, and four Clonazepam prescription pills in the possession of Shaw.

Shaw also had

Sue over a negative review? NH1 News Investigates Dusty Old Cars of Nashua

Stephen Kelly of Medford Massachusetts says he’s been scammed by a classic and vintage car dealer in Nashua. In October of 2015, Kelley handed over his 1970 Cadillac Deville convertible to Stephan Condodemetraky, owner of Dusty Old Cars, to sell on consignment.

“The pitch that was made to me from them was, we get a lot of traffic on our website for people who are looking for exactly what you’re selling, so if someone is looking for an antique car, they’ll come to us first,” says Kelley. He adds, “I was thrilled that they came and did all the work. They came, they got the car… and there were literally hundreds of pictures of that car on their website. I thought, these people really have their act together.”

In February of 2016, the convertible—priced at 8 thousand dollars—was listed as sold on Dusty Old Car’s website.

For months, Kelley emailed and called to

George takes over as Pacers rally past Blazers

The Indiana Pacers entered Saturday’s home game against the Portland Trail Blazers on the back end of back-to-back games, having lost by eight in Dallas on Friday.

The Dallas loss was the last of five-game road trip into the Western Conference. Moreover, the Blazers are one of the NBA’s best offensive teams and the Pacers are one of the worst defensive teams in the league.

Every indication pointed to a rough night for the undoubtedly tired Pacers, but few would likely have anticipated the deluge that Portland inundated Indiana with from the start.

And even fewer would have predicted that the Pacers would survive and emerge victorious anyway.

Portland scored 44 points in the opening quarter and led by as much as 20 in the first half, but the Pacers managed to stay within range. Doing so allowed All-Star Paul George to work his magic in the fourth quarter. George scored 15 points in

2016 Cadillac CTS-V Pricing

Unlike some high-performance luxury cars, Cadillac bakes most of the important equipment into the CTS-V standard so buyers won’t have to spend a lot more to access the sedan’s ultimate potential.

What Is It?
The Cadillac CTS-V is a high-performance midsize luxury sport sedan based on the basic chassis and body shell of the CTS sedan. And to battle the best sport sedans from Europe, Cadillac installed a brutally powerful supercharged 6.2-liter V8. The sophisticated engine generates 640 hp at 6,400 rpm and 630 pound-feet of torque at 3,600 rpm.

That’s just 10 fewer horses than the fire-breathing Corvette Z06. Cadillac backs this mill with an eight-speed automatic that can be manually shifted by steering-wheel-mounted paddles. Yes, the aforementioned Corvette makes a manual transmission available, but Cadillac representatives say so few would choose the option on the CTS-V

Fleet of over 40 classic cars hidden in a Michigan garage and not touched for 30 YEARS sell for $300000 at auction

An auction company in Michigan has sold a collection of classic cars for more than $300,000 after being tipped off to the location.

Repocast, a ‘recovery and sales division’ of Miedema Asset Management Group, was given the keys to the cars by a family looking to off-load their father’s collection, which had gone untouched for as many as 30 years.

Scott Miedma and a pit crew of colleagues hit the road for Grand Rapids earlier this year to meet the family, who after a quick feeling-out session at a Denny’s fast food store, let them kick the tires

Inside the family’s garage were more than 40 cars collected over the past 50 years or so, including a fleet of 28 Ford Thunderbirds from the late 1950s to the 1976 ‘big bird’ model.

Many of the cars were in
