Omaha, Council Bluffs Chevrolet Cadillac Dealer Welcomes the 2011 Cadillac SRX — Derwin Horne "The Car Guy"


Nov. 28, 2010PRLog — Great News for Cadillac Lovers! The Highly Anticipated New 2011 Cadillac SRX has arrived and is available for purchase at our Classic Chevrolet Cadillac Dealer.

According to Bob Reuter, global vehicle chief engineer, the 2011 Cadillac SRC has the ability to deliver an excellent and well-balanced driving dynamics in all types of bad weather. He stated that the all-wheel-drive system with electronic limited slip effectively transfers torque not only from front to rear, but also along the rear axle. This system sets a new benchmark for all all-wheel-drive systems, giving the driver control and confidence on any road surface. Another great thing about this new vehicle is the rear eLSD. The purpose of eLSD is to give driver enhanced control when cornering hard or completing a high-speed maneuver.  The system can transfer up

Driven: 2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon

Now that General Motors is back from the brink, Cadillac must roll up its monogrammed sleeves to move more semiprecious metal. Toward that end, the new SRX gets the brand’s first turbo engine, the stunning CTS coupe is scheduled to arrive next year, and two new sedans bracketing today’s CTS are due in 2011. But the brightest ray of postapocalyptic hope is the CTS Sport Wagon: the first U.S.-factory-built wagon in Cadillac’s 107-year history.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the new CTS wagon is a triumph of form over function. To load four-by-eight-foot sheets of plywood in the cargo hold, you’ll need a saw. Spoiling the luscious rump with a trailer hitch would constitute a mortal sin. The neatly integrated roof rails are not configured for mattress hauling.

This wagon is engineered to haul ass. Like the CTS sedan, its body structure is Hillary Clinton stiff, its steering is meaty enough

A Conversation with Saab’s Victor Muller and Jan-Ake Jonsson – Autoblog

Details on the 2012 9-3

Muller and Jonsson also offered some clarification on that 9-3. Although it was suggested here that the coming 9-3 would challenge the Audi A3, that is not the case: it will be a straight-up competitor for the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series.

While not getting into issues of its size, when asked about what platform it would be built on, Muller said “It will be on our own platform.” That’s because the Epsilon I platform (not the Epsilon II or smaller Delta) has been so thoroughly reworked that when we asked if it was almost unrecognizable, Muller replied “Not almost. It’s unrecognizable.”

And it’s possible their work will show up underneath other Saab cars or those from other makers. Said Jonsson, “The good thing with the new 9-3 architecture is that we’re making it flexible in terms of size and type

Future Cadillac Crossovers to Adopt “XT” Nomenclature

Cadillac is working hard to build cachet around its brand, and over the last few weeks we’ve witnessed big shifts to further that goal. New brand president Johan de Nysschen announced that Cadillac would relocate its official headquarters from Detroit to New York City, begin operating as a more independent entity within General Motors, and move its sedan naming convention to a new “CTx”-based system. Today, Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell also confirmed to Automobile that Cadillac’s future crossovers will adopt an “XT”-based naming system.

The scheme follows up on the CTx nomenclature which will begin with the flagship Cadillac CT6 sedan. The Cadillac SRX (pictured) is the brand’s only crossover as of this moment, and we are according to Cadillac still “several years” from a new model, but the XT nomenclature gives the luxury automaker a more open system within which to introduce

General Motors will add a third vehicle to its production lineup at its Spring Hill plant next year, news that came in contrast to the company’s announcement earlier Monday of a sweeping $6 billion cost-cutting plan across the country.

Among the new features for 2013 is CUE, the in-vehicle user experience that incorporates touch-screen controls similar to the most popular mobile devices.

The 2013 SRX’s enhanced technology also contributes to safety, with Cadillac’s new Driver Awareness and Driver Assist technology packages. Their features include Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Cadillac’s Safety Alert Seat technology, Automatic Front and Rear Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control and more, using radar and other technologies to help avoid collisions.

First Drive: 2010 Cadillac SRX 2.8T adds more power and agility to the crossover party

While Cadillac has high expectations for the sporting performance of the SRX 2.8T, its sales goals are far more modest. Cadillac expects only 10% to 15% of SRX buyers to opt for the turbocharged version, and those that do will pay a premium for its increased capabilities. The 2.8T option will only be available in Performance and Premium trim, and all-wheel drive, moonroof and navigation are all standard.

The turbo’d SRX utilizes the same FE3 suspension found in uplevel 3.0-liter models, though it has its own Aisin-Warner six-speed automatic transmission. We’d estimate the 2.8T’s extra power will yield a 0-60 time of 7.5 seconds; about a second faster than the 3.0-liter model. Even with the 2.8T’s improved performance, Cadillac still expects similar fuel economy to the 17/23 numbers of the non-turbo 3.0-liter mill, with city/highway

ATS acquires De Tomaso in bid to spark Italian revival – Autoblog

Italy has had more than its fair share of old auto marques revived in recent years. Fiat brought back the Abarth marque not long ago, Bugatti restarted in Modena before returning across the border to Molsheim, Carrozzeria Touring got back into the business after decades lying dormant, Zagato revived the Diatto name for a small run of sportscars, and the students at the IED in Turin plucked the Cisitalia name out of the dustbin of history for a concept car last year. But two of the most recent Italian auto marques to resurface are ATS and De Tomaso.

Automobili Turismo e Sport went back into business last year on the occasion of the original marque’s 50th anniversary with new models including the Sport 1000, 2500 GT and 300 Leggera. The brand was originally launched in 1963
