    Cadillac has apparently allowed a little over a thousand CT4s to leave the factory with 450T badges instead of the correct 500T badges, per a report from Cadillac Society. Okay, so the badges are a reference to the car's power, but not its horsepower, its torque instead, and not in pound-feet...

    The fourth generation of MagneRide will be offered, for the first time, on the 2021 CT5-V and CT4-V, as well as the CT5 Sport and the Escalade. It will be the fastest-reacting active suspension system in the world, according to Cadillac. Able to react 45% faster than the third generation...

    All the cool (German) kids are doing it, so why wouldn't Cadillac? The vogue for big performance SUVs may soon hit the Cadillac if comments made by Cadillac's Escalade product manager, Dave Schiavone, to Detroit publication Muscle Cars & Trucks are anything to off. "Ever since we came out with...

    A stop-sale order found by Corvetteactioncenter.com indicates that the 2020 and 2021 Corvettes are suffering from a brake-by-wire issue.   GM has informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a recall is upcoming, according to the stop-sale order. The document also indicates...

    Cadillac is upping the ante on the CT4 and CT5 for the 2021 model year. As both cars were introduced last year and the upgrades represent fairly comprehensive changes to both vehicles, this refresh is quite curious. Either General Motors spent the pandemic being more productive than we initially...

    Yes, the Blackwings - to be clear, the CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwings - will receive their own special performance steering wheel, Cadillac announced Thursday. Teasing a steering wheel a year out from a model's debut seems a little unusual, especially considering the CT4-V and CT5-V are on sale now...

    Cadillac has officially confirmed that the hotter versions of the CT4-V and CT5-V will be called Blackwing. That's despite (reportedly) not being powered by the Blackwing V8. That's because, according to Cadillac, the name is more about excellence than it is about a particular object. "The...

    Cadillac reportedly has no plans to add hybrid or plug-in hybrid capabilities for the CT4 or CT5. That's according to unnamed sources who spoke to Cadillac Society. The sources also claim that the sedans will not go electric-only, either. That last piece of information, if true, gives some...

    Closed production facilities and social distancing will reportedly lead to a delayed launch for the CT5-V Blackwing and CT4-V Blackwing. Although the names have not yet been confirmed, the cars popularly predicted to be named after Cadillac's unique V8, will be even more hardcore versions of...

    Given the disparity between the U.S. and Canadian auto industries, it's not surprising that Friday started with news of a shift dropped at Fiat Chrysler's Windsor, Ontario minivan plant and ends with two more added at General Motors facilities just across the border. GM said today that a shift...

    It's hard to find an engine bay that looks particularly good these days, but even by the low standards of the times, Cadillac's aren't great. According to a report from Cadillac Society, that's because Cadillac doesn't think its customers care. And according to me, that's the problem with...

    The Escalade, the CT5, and the CT4 will soon benefit from an improved version of Super Cruise. The new updates include richer map information, better software, general enhancements, and, most importantly, a new feature called Lane Change On Demand. The marquee update, which Mario Maiorana...

    The upcoming real-V versions of the CT4 and CT5 might not be getting a Blackwing V8 under the hood, but a new report says that they're coming with an even bigger surprise. A third pedal. That's right, Muscle Cars and Trucks is reporting that the CT4-V and CT5-V cars will be getting a six-speed...

    Cadillac's recent decision to move its corporate emblem to the top of the grille was, apparently, a very controversial move. While older models carried the badge dead center, current models have allowed the symbol to creep nearer to the hood latch. We failed to notice any riots in the streets...

    For its last model year, the Cadillac ATS boasted rear-wheel drive, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and an MSRP of $35,495 plus destination. Two years later, the newest and smallest addition to the Cadillac range keeps the recipe more or less the same, only the starting price of the 2020...

    Although the CT4-V was revealed at an event earlier this summer, Cadillac kept mum about the standard CT4 until now. Offering as much as 309 hp (or as little as 237 hp) and AWD in every trim, the standard CT4 is aimed squarely at youths. Power comes from the same (albeit detuned) 2.7-liter 4...

    A report surfaced today from Muscle Cars and Trucks, suggesting that the Camaro will not live on to see a seventh generation. Having been sold continuously for the last 10 years, the iconic pony car is not planned to transition to the new A2XX platform. Current product plans forecast production...

    Our first look at Cadillac's new CT4 was with the V model announced late last week. But a closer look at the car shows that the replacement for the ATS might just be a warmed-over ATS with a new badge instead of a ground-up redesign. The folks at Hagerty took a close look at the specs for the...

    Cadillac unveiled the first performance variants associated with the CT4 and CT5 at an event in Detroit on Thursday. The CT4- and CT5-V bridge the gap that Cadillac perceives there to be between its regular cars and the track-ready V-Series cars of old. The two Vs unveiled in Detroit, therefore...

    Although the CT4 has yet to be revealed, Cadillac plans on revealing its pumped-up sports variant on May 30. The follow-up to the ATS-though Cadillac will likely deny that-the CT4 will be Cadillac's baby sedan, slotting into the lineup below the slightly bigger CT5 and the more bigger CT6...
