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

Which 2017 Cars Offer In-Car Wi-Fi?

CARS.COM — The next frontier for in-car connectivity is Wi-Fi mobile hot spots that allow you to wirelessly connect multiple devices while the car is hurtling down the road. In these cars, SUVs and trucks, a tablet or laptop — not just a smartphone — can remotely connect to office networks, play movies and TV shows, access hundreds of online radio stations and tap into other internet fare while the car is rolling down the road.

Used 2014 Cadillac ELR for Sale

As with the Volt, a fully charged battery propels the car on electricity alone for about 30-55 miles depending on driving style and conditions. Once that all-electric range has been depleted, the ELR essentially turns into a variation of a regular hybrid. A four-cylinder gasoline engine works in concert with a reserve of battery electricity to power the twin electric drive motors. On rare occasions, the engine can directly power the wheels.

Like other Cadillacs, the ELR features an attractive cabin decorated in rich materials and dominated by the frustrating but sharp-looking CUE electronics interface. The cabin technically seats four people (as a Volt does), but the cramped rear seats are largely vestigial. Trunk space is also compromised. On the upside, the ELR looks like it just materialized out of the fanciful mind of a car designer, as its silhouette and detailing are the stuff of bedroom wall posters. Not many

Marion County sheriff’s sergeant cleared in officer-involved shooting …

A Marion County sheriff’s sergeant who shot toward a man who injured him during a traffic stop earlier this month was justified in firing his weapon, a grand jury found Monday.

Juan Francisco Martinez 

Sgt. Jason Hickam fired toward Juan Francisco Martinez on April 7 near Woodburn, authorities said. Martinez wasn’t injured, according to the county district attorney’s office, and he was arrested later that day. 

Prosecutors announced details of the traffic stop Monday, saying Hickam and another sergeant told Martinez during the stop that his Cadillac Escalade would have to be towed because he didn’t have insurance. They said Martinez then started the engine and began driving away while Hickam’s arm was caught inside the SUV.

Hickam fired once toward the SUV before being “thrown to the ground,” prosecutors said. He was treated and released from a hospital. The other sergeant, Kevin Roberts, wasn’t injured.

The grand jury also indicted Martinez, 35, on

2017 Tesla Model X Review

After a rocky launch, the Tesla Model X SUV is seemingly on its (silent) way into many owners’ hands.

It’s too early for 2017 details—the automaker doesn’t follow traditional model years like others, and rolls out changes on the fly—but Tesla is finally building 5-seater versions of the Model X and now offers fold-flat rear seats, which was an early and frequent gripe from owners.

It’s offered in 75-, 90-, and 100-kwh battery sizes, all with all-wheel drive, and one performance model, the P100D. Ranges start at 237 miles and go up to 289 miles.

The Model X earns an 8.2 out of 10 on our overall scale with plenty of points for efficiency and features. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

Style and performance

It would always be hard for Tesla to follow up on the great looks of the Model S. (Eds note: The Model S could be coal-powered and still

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
