The Cadillac ATS-V Coupe, ATS-V Sedan, and CTS-V Sedan are venerated members of the brand’s V-Series performance lineup, but they won’t be around for much longer. Cadillac recently confirmed plans that by spring of next year, both models will be gone for good. In their place, Cadillac is offering a fresh slate of V-Series performance vehicles, starting with the upcoming 2019 Cadillac CT6-V.
“Starting in 2019, Cadillac will broaden the V-Series sub-brand and add high-performance variants across its portfolio — all with enhanced propulsion systems, chassis and brake systems,” said Cadillac spokesperson told CNet’s Roadshow. This will include the 550-horsepower 4.2-liter turbocharged V8 powering the CT6-V when it arrives this spring
What’s Next For Cadillac?
As to what broadening its lineup entails, Cadillac was mum. It’s fair to guess, however, that there will be V-Sport variants of the replacements for its current coupes and sedans, which are likely to carry the names CT3, CT4, and CT5. If we’re lucky, it might also mean a high-powered version of the new XT4 and XT5 crossovers, or even of the upcoming next-generation Escalade. Could you imagine?
In the meantime, Cadillac’s current ATS-V Coupe, ATS-V Sedan, and CTS-V Sedan are among the most impressive performance/luxury vehicles on the road today. To experience them in person, stop by Bentley Cadillac.
Our home state of Alabama is chock-full of outdoor wonders, from jaw-dropping caverns to breathtaking waterfalls. If you’ve been putting off getting out there and experiencing the majesty that is Alabama, now is the time to follow through.
Our road trip begins at the gem of Alabama: Bentley Cadillac in Huntsville. This gleaming dealership puts forth only the finest luxury vehicles, and if you’ve just gotten a brand-new XT5 or Escalade, this road trip is a great way to break it in.
From Bentley Cadillac, head south on US-72 for Cathedral Cavern State Park in Woodville. After you’ve spent an adequate amount of time taking in the park’s gorgeous caverns, clambor back into the Cadillac and head up to Noccalula Falls in Gadsden.
Noccalula Falls, often called the “Niagara Falls of Alabama,” is an awe-inspiring sight to see. If it’s a scorcher, you can cool off in the cool mist from falls—just be sure you bring an extra set of dry clothes for the trip!
Looping back north up AL-35, you’ll be on your way to Little River Canyon Falls Park. If you can make a weekend of this road trip, this is a perfect spot to camp out for the night. Wake up bright and early and head to your final location: Russell Cave National Monument in Bridgeport.
If you complete this road trip, you will have just seen the very best of Alabama’s natural wonders. Just be sure to head back to Bentley Cadillac before you head home to share all of your pictures with us!
Think you’ve seen the pink Cadillac convertible at its best? Captain Joe Fox is here to prove you wrong. His new pink Cadillac convertible is making a splash—literally.
Joe Fox is the captain of his car and his boat. Because his car is his boat. Now, before you get any ideas, Captain Fox’s ride isn’t actually a pink Cadillac convertible. He did, however, work tirelessly to create an exact Cadillac convertible replica in boat form, making it the very first Cadillac convertible “boat car”.
A History Of Innovation
Fox has been building boats since he was 12, so he certainly knew what he was doing in constructing the replica. Called the “Nautilimo” (Nautical + limousine), the “boat car” is constructed to look like a 1977 Cadillac stretch limo, complete with a faux grille, headlights, and wheels.
Cruise In Style
Fox cruises around in his Cadillac for both work and play. He owns a business called Unique Boat Tours, which lives up to its name. The Cadillac “boat car” can seat up to six passengers, who, during the tour, enjoy a stylish ride and the beautiful sights of the Florida Keys.
Captain Fox owns multiple unique boats, including a replica pirate ship. If you’re a car-lover and a Cadillac lover, you’ll probably want to reserve a ride on Captain Joe’s “Nautilimo.” And if you want the best in today’s land-lubbing Cadillacs, be sure to stop into Bentley Cadillac to see what we have to offer.
