Which 2016 Cars Offer In-Car Wi-Fi? | News | Cars.com

CARS.COM — Bluetooth technology that allows hands-free use of a cellphone in a car now is almost universal, and the ability to operate smartphone apps through a vehicle’s audio system with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay is rapidly heading in that direction. Conquering the next frontier for in-car connectivity — turning vehicles into Wi-Fi mobile hot spots for wirelessly connecting multiple devices — also is gaining momentum.

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

Used 2012 Cadillac SRX for Sale


Performance

The most significant change to the 2012 Cadillac SRX is the direct-injection 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 308 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that features a Sport mode, and has a manual-shift capability that enables you to hold one of the intermediate ratios all the way to the engine’s redline.

Despite the increase in power, the direct-injected V6 is actually more fuel-efficient than its predecessors. For the front-wheel-drive SRX, it delivers EPA-estimated fuel economy of 17 city/24 highway mpg and 19 mpg combined (subtract 1 mpg in all categories for the all-wheel-drive model), on par with most of its competitors. There is also an “Eco” mode, which Cadillac says is good for squeezing out an additional 1 mpg. This engine is now capable of running on E85 fuel. More important, it can now run on regular gasoline, as many of the

US Electric Car Sales Up 68% In February

Cadillac ELR

The Cadillac ELR is a range-extended electric luxury coupe, and the smallest car in the Cadillac lineup. It’s also one of the priciest, with a base price recently lowered to about $65,000. The ELR was launched for the 2014 model year to unimpressive sales, with fewer than half of the brand’s dealers opting to even carry the plug-in electric coupe. 

The ELR took a brief hiatus for the 2015 model year, but has returned with mechanical improvements for 2016, as well as that lower price. For those interested, dealers may still have leftover stock of the 2014 model, which will likely carry considerable discounts.

It’s unclear if the model will live on past 2016. The automaker has signaled that the ELR would not continue for a second generation, and it’s possible that executives pull the plug on the ELR faster than that.

In Oregon auto fraud case, 1 car with 3 owners

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Kristin Ellenson loves everything about her 2012 Cadillac SRX, from the satiny silver paint job and sporty styling to the leather upholstery and wood-trimmed interior.

“The heated steering wheel,” she confides, “is awesome!”

She and her husband, Jim, bought the luxury sport-utility vehicle used from Jones 5 Auto Sales in November 2015, but within a week of bringing it home they realized they had a big problem: The Corvallis car dealership had shut down amid a criminal investigation, owner Shannon Jones had dropped out of sight, and dozens of people were coming forward claiming they had been ripped off.

The couple soon learned that the victims included two men who claimed to be the rightful owners of their Cadillac
