Is Cadillac about to go Crossover Crazy?

In a market where Cadillac is about to replace its best-selling crossover SUV, the SRX with the new XT5 which made its debut at the Dubai motor show there is a hint at more crossovers to come.  Why would Cadillac want more crossovers?  Most likely this would be an effort to be actually competitive in the market.  When you think about the other luxury automakers you can see each one has at least two crossovers and many have even more than that.  Cadillac, it would appear, would like to be in direct competition with Mercedes-Benz and BMW by offering as many as five crossovers for us to enjoy.

Look At the i3 Now!!

The BMW i3 gives us something cool to think about and drive in the luxury hatchback world.  Even though this is a small hatchback that would seem to garner very little attention, the fact that it’s an electrically powered vehicle that offers good range that can be boosted with a gas powered range extender.  This little beauty offers doors that open in a unique fashion and plenty of style to make it a car we want to drive and certainly gives us even more to talk about.

When Performance Matters

Most of the time we spend behind the wheel of a car what actually matters to us is the features we can make use of on our dull and boring drive to and from work each day.  When faced with this type of driving we don’t typically need performance from our car, just the ability to enjoy the drive in some fashion.  At other times, such as when you schedule some track time or want to take a drive in the country, performance really does matter and you want to have a great performance car to give you the fun and engaged driving experience to make your ride one that you can really take pleasure in.  When you want a great performance car for these drives, consider these and find the car that will excite you: (more…)

Sleeping Their Way to Success

What is a “sleeper”?  In most cases this is a person or a product that ends up giving a performance that greatly outdoes the expectations of the market or industry.  In the automotive industry there are many sleepers that look like they might do well, but little is actually expected of them.  What happens when these sleepers start to become the leaders in sales and on the market, the manufacturer has to scramble to keep up with the demand, but certainly is able to be giddy about the unexpected success of one of their products.  Here are some cars that were deemed sleepers over the past several years.

One Way You can Get to Drive a Rolls-Royce

The Rolls-Royce and the Spirit of Ecstasy ornament have been the figure of high class luxury for many years.  Only the very few ultra-rich can afford to buy and drive a Rolls-Royce model and be driven around in these high class automobiles that are made to be fantastic to drive and ride in.  As the perfect luxury brand with every model being finely tuned and ready to go most of us will never be able to drive one of these beauties, let alone ride around in one in such a way as to get more than a glimpse from time to time.

Partnership is a Possibility

When we see car companies team up the results often can be simply amazing.  When it comes to two of the most lauded names in the business that have developed technologies and systems that are being recognized as the perfect blend of elements the car should be out of this world.  Currently the talks are that two of our favorite names will pair up to design and offers a car that will be the best of both worlds in a way that will generate excitement and possibly give us the next supercar for us to love and admire.
