Cadillac October Sales Best Since 2007

The Cadillac October sales numbers are in and things are looking good. The American automaker enjoyed its best October month since 2007 with a 10% increase in sales that made it the fastest-growing full-line luxury auto brand in the world. By increasing its sales compared to last year’s October, Cadillac also recorded its 17th consecutive month of growing sales.

The biggest leaders in the brand’s lineup were the ATS compact sport sedan, SRX crossover, and XTS large luxury sedan, all of which you can find at Bradshaw Cadillac. The ATS in particular performed phenomenally, with sales increasing by 119% and earning the Consumer Reports Recommended Buy in October alone.

SRX sales increased by a record 23% and the XTS, now available in a brand new 410 horsepower Vsport edition, jumped by 8%.

In addition to being an incredible sales month, October also marked the arrival of the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS, now available at the Bradshaw Cadillac dealership, which has already received more than its fair share of positive reviews from critics and buyers alike.

Corvette Stingray Features New Themed Display Cluster

Most new cars have a screen display that can be used to do just about anything you’d want to do in a car other than drive. They’ll show media information for the radio or your MP3 device, offer access to Bluetooth and GPS, give you control over specific car configurations ranging from the air conditioning to the suspension, and more. Over time, display screens have become somewhat of a mixed blessing, as the increased complexity and sheer scope of what they can do has plagued some in-car technology systems with usability issues.

Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac of Greer, SCThe advanced cluster display in the new 2014 Corvette Stingray aims to find a solution by offering “themes,” 10 different configurable display features designed to fulfill different drivers’ expectations from the display—and, at the same time, enhance the driving experience.

The main three themes are Tour, Sport, and Track. Tour mode provides essential vehicle information and multimedia displays for commuting drivers; Sports mode features a radial tachometer designed to recall the classic sports-car experience; and Track mode puts an emphasis on information vital for a successful track outing.

Other themes include a lap timer, an acceleration timer, and a G-force indicator. Check them out at the Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac dealership in Greer, SC, to see what it’s like to drive one of the most iconic sports car in America.
