Cadillac’s aggressive promotion of its brand doesn’t show any signs of slowing down, and just for the spring of 2014, it’s got a special model for those interested in a unique 2015 ATS Coupe . The model is called the Crimson Sport Special Edition, and while it does come with a host of new upgrades, including Caddy’s Track Package, the indelible characteristic of this special edition ATS is its Crimson Red Metallic exterior paint.

Unique as the paint is, the color isn’t the only thing special about the exterior of the vehicle. A ground effects package was also installed, featuring a color-matched front splitter, rocker moldings and rear diffuser, and an aero deck-lid spoiler. Finally, a set of exclusive 18-inch Manoogian Dark Silver Premium Painted wheels were added to the mix, giving the ATS Crimson Sport a true special-edition look to it.

Moving inside, four different interior environments — Morello Red with Jet Black accents, Caramel with Jet Black accents, Jet Black with Jet Black accents or Light Platinum with Jet Black accents — are offered to go with new heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel and shift lever, both of which are made from microfiber suede.

The ATS Crimson Sport Special Edition is offered with either the 272-horsepower ATS 2.0T Performance Collection with the automatic transmission or the 321-horsepower 3.6L Premium Collection with rear- or all-wheel drive. The model are set to hit dealerships at the end of March with a retail price of $46,010 for the 2.0T and $51,010 for the 3.6L.

The Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is a road-thumping powerhouse that is probably unfairly judged because its a wagon. Despite its old-school looks that are in need of more than just an update, the vehicle is still pretty appealing. Similar to the coupe and sedan versions, the CTS-V Wagon is the kind of vehicle that enthusiasts are likely to fall in line for.

The big issue for the CTS-V Wagon are its outdated aesthetics, but these may be addressed sooner than later now that the all-new CTS Sedan has officially broken cover.

But even with the new-look CTS-V Wagon still at least a year away from arriving, you’ll still get what you’ll pay for with current generation look. It’s significantly less expensive than it’s rivals and more importantly, its ridiculous 500-horsepower performance puts it right in line with some of the top models in its class.

It’s another year of waiting for the Cadillac CTS-V Sedan before it gets its new looks, so for now, the high-performance luxury sedan is content selling its performance capabilities packaged with last-generation’s styling That, essentially, is the conundrum for the CTS-V Sedan. Talks of a new look gained some steam with the introduction of the next-generation CTS Sedan , and it’s likely that the CTS-V Sedan will follow suit next year, and inherit the new CTS styling.

For now, though, this is what customers are going to get, and while it may be a smarter move to just sit and wait for the new CTS-V, it’s not like this model has completely lost all its appeal.

It still performs like a muscle car disguised in a luxury sedan’s body, and its aesthetics still look pretty good, despite getting up there in age.

The 2014 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe may be long in the tooth, but it still has some surprisingly springy legs, which a testament to how far Cadillac has come in turning this high-powered CTS Coupe into a real luxury sports coupe.

Unfortunately, the CTS-V Coupe didn’t get the same love from Cadillac as far as looks are concerned. That honor was bestowed to the all-new CTS Sedan , and judging by how well-received the CTS Sedan was when it made its debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show, the CTS-V should have reason for optimism when it gets its due turn in the new-generation design.

For now, though, the 2014 CTS-V Coupe trudges on with relatively minor updates since it made its debut in 2008. It’s a risky move for Cadillac, especially when a lot of customers can just opt to sit back and wait for the new-look CTS-V Coupe to arrive.

Cadillac ATS Coupe

Cadillac’s been making waves this week for all the right reasons. Days after it debuted the all-new ATS Coupe , the U.S. manufacturer confirmed that the car’s performance-oriented trim, the aptly named ATS-V , will have performance numbers that would put it right smack in the middle of the BMW M3’s crosshairs.

According to Motor Trend, the ATS-V will carry a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6 engine that will produce 425 horsepower — the exact same output as its German competitor. More importantly, or at least until we hear more about it, Caddy also has plans to build an even more powerful ATS-V, which will reportedly be called the ATS-V+. That one is expected to use a bigger V-8 engine that could potentially have as much as 500 horsepower on tap.

These announcements carry a lot of significance for Cadillac in its attempt to be a player in the sports coupe segment. With plenty of European brands staking their respective claims in the U.S. market, America had to be represented. Cadillac is trying to answer that call and judging by the way the ATS was received at the North American International Auto Show , there will be a lot of interested folks out there waiting to for the company to develop the ATS-V.

When the Cadillac CTS dropped onto the market, it was available in a variety of versions, including a sedan , a coupe and a station wagon . Now, the same recipe for success is being applied to the new ATS . Cadillac will first put out a sedan and a coupe version, but a station wagon version and a convertible are also said to be in the mix. Why? Well, Americans need cheaper alternatives to German coupes and Cadillac is ready to deliver just about anything we’re looking for in order to pick up sales.

They have the platform to build on and will more than likely make sure they get their money’s worth on it.

At the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, Cadillac finally revealed the all-new 2015 ATS Coupe, and borrowed a host of features from the sedan version, except for the new body panels, the equally new Cadillac badge and the sedan’s two rear doors

The ATS Coupe is also built on the same rear-wheel-drive Alpha platform and is offered with nearly the same engine lineup as the sedan: a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder with 270 horsepower, and a 3.6-liter, V-6 with 321 horsepower. The engines are combined with either a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic transmission. There will also be an option for an all-wheel-drive system.

BMW and Audi better start prepping themselves for some competition.

A standard Cadillac CTS-V is powered by a 6.2-liter, supercharged V-8 that delivers a total of 556 horsepower, which is downright amazing for a sports sedan. From here to 1,309 horsepower is a very long way and requires tons of updates. But this is exactly the amount of power that this CTS-V, known as the most powerful one in the world, happens to have.

In order to obtain this amazing amount of power, the owner of this CTS-V updated the supercharged V-8 with a pair of Precision turbochargers, an air-to-water intercooler and heavy-duty gearbox. With these updates in tow, he now owns the most powerful CTS-V in the world — at least the most powerful one that we know of.

Check out the video to see this 1,309-horsepower CTS-V on the dyno and have a listen to this monster. It is music to our ears.

Cadillac was founded in 1902 by Henry Leland and only seven years later, General Motors acquired it. Currently, Caddy is one of the oldest automakers in the world, and it delivers cars to the U.S. and 34 additional markets worldwide.

Cadillac has always been a very successful company, plus it was the first American car to win the Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club of England. In 2013, however, its success grew even further, as Cadillac enjoyed a 21-percent increase in sales, with almost 185,000 units delivered worldwide. The overall sales number marked the most since 2007 and the overall brand growth made it the fastest-growing luxury brand in 2013, which is obviously a byproduct of the brand’s largest expansion since 1976.

As you probably expect, the greatest success in the lineup went to the new sedans — the ATS and CTS — which saw sales improvement of 48 percent over 2012 sedan sales numbers.

The 2014 ELR had a late hand in boosting the overall sales numbers, as deliveries began in December.

We’ve brought you all the important details about Cadillac’s newest flagship SUV: the totally new 2015 Escalade and Escalade ESV. Now we bring you live images and our first impressions of the beastly, all-American luxury SUV.

Over the weekend at the Miami International Auto Show , we had the chance to climb inside the completely redesigned Escalade to see the improvements first hand. The Escalade is based on its GM cousins, the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban , along with the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. Across the board, the interiors are much improved in regards to roominess and use of space. Finally for the first time, the full-size General Motors SUVs have folding rear seats that allow for a flat load floor.

The second row has grown two inches in the footwell for added ease of entry and exit for taller, larger-footed passengers. Their height won’t be a problem inside either, as headroom is quite generous throughout the cabin. The Escalade we sampled was equipped with the second-row captains chairs. The center aisle was wide enough for easy access to the third row and the nearly flat floor kept tripping hazards to the minimum.

Up front, the driver is treated to the same huge TFT display found in the Cadillac CTS and XTS. Real wood trim is abundant and contrasts nicely with the soft leather seating. Fit and finish is unmatched by any Cadillacs of past. Gaps and seams were tight even and intricate details abound throughout the cabin. The details continue outside with etched Cadillac crests appearing within the clear plastic tail lamps.

Such details were a welcome addition to what will assuredly be a home run for General Motors.

Even though the Holiday season is about a month away, Cadillac and Saks Fifth Avenue joined forces to develop a special edition Cadillac ELR that will be displayed in the 2013 Saks Holiday Catalog. This special edition is limited to only 100 units, and you can order it now. Caddy will start delivering this limited ELR in March 2014, and it checks in at a base price of $89,500 — nearly $15k more than a base ELR, which is priced at $75,995.

So, what kind of goodies do you get for this extra cash, besides exclusivity? The 2014 Cadillac Saks Fifth Avenue Special Edition ELR features an exclusive White Diamond exterior paint combined with an interior in either Jet Black or Light Cashmere.

The ELR also comes with an upgraded 240-volt charging station with professional installation — permits included — and their own ELR Concierge Representatives to offer information on battery care, home charging, service scheduling, and news and updates.

Oh wait, you were expecting a little more for your $15k... Sorry folks, that’s about all she wrote. We don’t know about this one; exclusivity is cool and all, but $15k for a $3k charger and some exclusive colors, not impressed...
