One of the oldest automakers in the world, Cadillac has reinvented its line-up and Omaha’s Huber Cadillac is leading the way. As GM predicts Cadillac sales to nearly double in the next three years with new model launches coming almost every 6 month through 2021, there’s a lot to look forward to and some great values as older model stocks clear out.
The model relaunches started with the SUV crossover subcompact XT4, marking Cadillac’s first entry into this market segment. Crossovers account for almost half of the overall U.S. retail auto market. It came in strong, becoming the best- selling model in its segment, knocking off the Jeep Cherokee. With a starting price under $40,000, the XT4 delivers the power and technology you’d expect from Cadillac with class-leading passenger space. Released here near the end of 2018, Huber hosted the first virtual tour of this new model in late 2018. Manufactured in Kansas City, the XT4 has been flying off of Huber’s lot.
The XT5 is a step up in size from the XT4, but it’s lightweight architecture and plush interior mean you’re not sacrificing size for power or comfort. Well known for its crisp handling, this year’s model introduced the Super Cruise self-driving system, a partial driving aid that brings additional safety features to help drivers stay alert and on the road.
Manufactured in Spring Hill, Tennesse, the Spring Hill Manufacturing plant won the ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry Recongition for Assembly Plant in 2015, meaning they lead the industry in minimizing environmental impacts.
Coming in the 2nd half of 2019, the XT6 is one step above the XT5 and one step below the classic Escalade, which is also due for a makeover in 2020. The XT5 is spacious enough to offer three rows of seating, holding up to seven easily. If the Escalade is just out of reach in your budget, the XT6 is your ride.
Coming for 2020 – The Return of the Sedan and a New Escalade
A replacement for the compact ATS and the CTS luxury sedan, the CT5 pushes the next generation of Cadillac sedans, boasting improved technology and power. Expected to come with the Super Cruise autonomous driving system, the CT5 will feature a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with a control knob on the side. A 3.0L twin turbo V6 will be available with 355 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
Replacing the full-sized ATS, this slightly longer and slightly heavier sedan is Cadillac’s answer to mid-range sedans from BMW, Mercedes Benz and Audi. Sporting a more potent powertrain, stiffer suspension and larger brakes, all models are expected to come with Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control to improve performance.
The standard in luxury full-sized sports utility vehicles, the 5th generation Escalade will have a completely redesigned interior and even more comfort and technology features. The early buzz is there will be an option with a 650-horsepower motor, related to the one that powers the Camaro.
General Motors recently announced that its Cadillac division will lead the “company’s move toward an electric future” starting with new models in 2022 an all-electric SUV. Envisioned to a be a long-range electric, the configuration should support different wheel configurations and an electric-car architecture that allows Cadillac to respond rapidly to changing market demands.
