New Cadillac Flagship Sedan to Debut in 2015

Next year, Cadillac will have a new car joining the model line, and it will be big one. The new sedan will be a flagship to lead all Cadillacs in both size and features.

According to Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell, “We are in development of a top-of-the-range car for Cadillac. It is a new architecture, rear-wheel drive, and, of course, all-wheel drive will be offered.”

Although no official name has been announced yet, the car with the codename LTS has had rumors spread about it for years, ever since the Cadillac Sixteen concept was introduced in 2003 and the Elmiraj was unveiled at Pebble Beach in 2013.

Bob Ferguson, Senior Vice President of Global Cadillac, said, “The Elmiraj was designed to be more than a concept car. It was designed to go out and test the market to see if there is an appetite for something like that.

It seems Cadillac found what they were looking for in its tests. You can expect to see the new sedan at Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac as soon as it is available. For now, head to our website and browse our inventory of 2015 models like the ATS, SRX and Escalade!

2015 Cadillac ATS Models Built with Improved Electronic Steering

Cadillac continues to expand its lineup of quality vehicles as it makes a splash in the luxury auto industry, reclaiming its fame as a top automaker. Most recently, the brand announced it is adding new and improved electronic steering for 2015 Cadillac ATS models.

The enhanced system promises a more dynamic driving experience, made possible by ZF Lenksysteme GmbH’s electronic power assist steering system.

“It means that you don’t have to sacrifice parking lot feel for spirited driving feel,” said Kevin Woodward, global key account for ZF Lenksysteme. “The new software change illustrates our ability to balance the goal of spirited performance, nimble and quick-responding steering with the premium luxury feel expected by Cadillac owners.”

The 2015 Cadillac ATS will feature updated steering technology.

The electronic control unit’s updated programming allows for a wider range of steering assist for the vehicle at both high and low speeds.

“Premium electric power steering by ZF Lenksysteme steering gear has great torsional stiffness and low operating friction to enhance the steering feel with almost perfect linear response,” said Woodward.

Oh yea, Cadillac is back to show the auto world what it can do; and we at Bradshaw Chevy Buick GMC Cadillac can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the new 2015 Cadillac ATS models.

The Cadillac ELR is All the Luxury You Never Expected out of an EV

If we’re being honest here at Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac, we’re not sure we ever saw the words “Cadillac” and “electric vehicle” ever co-existing in a happy marriage. But it turns out we were wrong—and in hindsight, it actually makes sense. It’s not that every electric vehicle (EV) had to be tiny, bland, and rather powerless—that’s just the way other automakers were making them.

The all-new Cadillac ELR electric vehicle marries luxury and efficiency.

But then the Cadillac ELR burst onto the scene. Based on the Converj Concept, which made its debut back at the North American International Auto Show in 2009, the ELR is Cadillac’s first-ever EV and the first vehicle to apply Extended Range Electric Vehicle technology to a production vehicle. The vehicle combines Extended Range Electric Vehicle (EREV) technology with a 1.4L four-cylinder engine to give it a range of over 300 miles.

Not only does the ELR feature revolutionary powertrain technology, it also bucks the idea that all EVs has to be tiny, unattractive little things that look like a box that got punched out of its normal shape. If we didn’t tell you the ELR was an electric vehicle, we bet you’d never guess. Don’t believe us? Take a look for yourself. Here at Bradshaw, we think it looks more like a futuristic sports car, and we think it drives like one too. So yeah, we were wrong—turns out the electric vehicle was actually just waiting for Cadillac to come along and actually make it cool for the first time.

Luxury Drivers Most Satisfied with the Cadillac SRX

After you a buy a new car, do you often think to yourself, “I wish my car had…” Feeling satisfied with your vehicle is a huge part of vehicle ownership and is something that is hard to predict. However, AutoPacific may be able to point you in the right direction.

In its annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards, it seems luxury crossover drivers are most satisfied with the Cadillac SRX. Making this the third year in a row the SRX has claimed this prize.

Drivers are more satisfied with the Cadillac SRX than any other luxury car on the market.

To get these results, AutoPacific surveyed more than 92,000 new car owners across the country and asked them to rate their level of satisfaction in 50 different car-related areas, including safety, fuel efficiency, and interior comfort.

If your previous car purchases have left you with a bad taste in your mouth, take a spin in the 2014 Cadillac SRX available now at Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac and see how satisfied you can feel.

2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe Takes In-Car Connectivity to a New Level

Luxury Meets the Future: The Cadillac ELR Smart Grid

The all-new Cadillac ELR will be ready to integrate into the Smart Grid as soon as it comes off the production line. By using OnStar’s cloud-based connection and the luxury coupe’s extended range electric vehicle technology, the ELR will be able to communicate with the electric grid and save energy.

The 2014 Cadillac ELR will feature Smart Grid connectivity technology.

In addition to all of the regular features to which ELR owners will have access with the OnStar RemoteLink Mobile App, such as checking vehicle operating systems and sending remote commands, owners will be able to access functions unique to electric vehicles. Some of these include checking the vehicle’s current state of charge, its electric range, electric miles driven, and the electric equivalent of MPG.

One of the most awesome features of the Smart Grid is the “aggregated services” feature. With the permission of the customer, electric service providers can manage the charging of participating vehicles in a given geographic area, allowing them to properly distribute and utilize all of the available renewable energy on a large amount of EVs simultaneously.

When the ELR does come off the production line, you’ll be able to find it right here at Bradshaw Cadillac. For more information, give us a call at (864) 416-7397!
