Cadillac as a whole, and the CT6 in particular have enjoyed a renaissance over the past couple of years thanks to the high-performance credentials, sharp new designs, and unique interior appointments.

What still makes the 2017 Cadillac CT6 an easy sell even in the face of mounting competition is its unparalleled combination of all these features, the dependability of the brand, and a competitive price package.

2016 Cadillac SRX exterior, red color, front view, headlights, grille and alloy wheels

Generally, the new 2016 SRX is essentially a carryover from the previous model and features very minimal recognizable changes.

The new 2016 Cadillac SRX comes with plenty of luxury features and is choke full of new technology nitty-gritties as well, to its credit.

We have found that the SRX rear headroom is wanting, while the outward visibility isn’t something worth to brag about. More unsettling, though, is the retention of the CUE electronics interface which is rather sluggish. Fortunately, the automaker has plans of upgrading it to the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for in car smartphone capability. Other cars highly recommended as an alternative to the SRX include the Volvo XC60 for 2016, the 2016 Acura RDX, and the Audi Q5.

The new 2017 Cadillac Escalade is ready for its premiere! While you may find other luxury SUV’s offering more versatility and refinement, the new 2017 Cadillac Escalade still manages to endear itself to people who are looking for bold styling and impressive V8 power. Other highpoints include a quiet interior, an available seating capacity for up to eight people, stout power, and an impressive towing capacity. The Cadillac Escalade release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.

This year, the Escalade gets only subtle changes that are notably conspicuous on its exterior styling and interior technologies. Many critics took Cadillac’s efforts with a pinch of salt when it said it was debuting its first model back in 1999. But even so, Cadillac proved it was not scratching an itch that wasn’t there once the first model made it to dealerships. It achieved quite a tremendous fan base, and continues to do almost two decades after.

However during this time, the number of rivals has increased significantly and Cadillac has had to offer the Escalade continuous improvements meant to keep it fresh and appealing to its fans. Its enduring appeal is manifested by its visual upgrades that adorn both its interior and exterior surfaces. It is now blockier and imposing on the outside and more comfortable and luxurious on its interior.

Its cabin looks modern and provides some of the latest features and technologies that will in no doubt enable it keep up with the Jonuses. It’s often critiqued CUE touchscreen interface has been overhauled and in its place is a more responsive and easy to use system that even those who find smartphone apps a bewilderment will certainly fall heads over heels with. Other technologies in place include the blind-spot monitor with rear-cross traffic alert, lane-departure warning and mitigation, pedestrian detection system, a multi-view camera, adaptive cruise control, and a faster Wi-Fi connectivity.

Lest you think the 2017 Cadillac is devoid of downsides, there are several setbacks worth pondering over. They include a high load height and cargo floor, a jiggly ride quality, and a cramped third-row bench. Nevertheless, these foibles shouldn’t be used as lame reason as to why you shouldn’t purchase the Escalade, as there are compelling and likable features to make you feel heavenly.
