Cadillac vehicles are pretty well-known for their sophistication, class, luxury, and overall comfort and functionality. As a leader in the luxury automotive industry, Cadillac is undoubtedly a well-deserved (and frequent) winner of auto awards. However, we were still pretty tickled to learn that the new 2014 Cadillac CTS was named one of Edmunds.com’s Top Rated Vehicles of 2014, while the 2014 Cadillac Escalade was named one of their Most Popular Premium Luxury SUVs of 2014.
“With a contemporary new look, a revised interior, and more powerful and fuel-efficient engines, the redesigned 2014 Cadillac CTS is a serious contender in the midsize luxury sedan class,” says Scott Oldham, Editor-in-Chief at Edmunds.com. It’s true. With three powertrain options all delivering impeccable horsepower and fuel efficiency, you can’t go wrong with the award-winning CTS.
This trophy will go right up on the shelf with many other CTS awards, including last year’s Motor Trend Car of the Year award and this year’s 2014 All-Star award from Automobile Magazine.

Kicking off 2014 in a position consistent with their claims to being the fastest-growing luxury automaker in the entire world, Cadillac announced this week that they have improved to third place among automakers in the 2014 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study. What’s more, two Cadillac nameplates—the Cadillac DTS and Escalade—topped their respective segments for dependability.
“Excellent quality and lasting value are central expectations for luxury consumers,” said Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing officer, Global Cadillac, in a press release. “This is a focus as we continue the ongoing elevation of the Cadillac brand.”
The J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study is based upon vehicle problems reported during the last 12 months by those who own 2011 model year vehicles. Cadillac leapt 11 whole spots to take third place behind Lexus and Mercedes-Benz.
As detailed in the study, Cadillac vehicles experience an average of 107 problems per every 100 vehicles on the road in a 12-month period, which is considerably better than the industry average of 133 problems per 100 vehicles.
The XTS precursor, the 2011 DeVille Touring Sedan (or DTS), tied for tops in the Large Premium Car segment. The 2011 Cadillac Escalade topped the Large Premium CUV segment, defeating the MB GL-Class.
If you’re looking for a dependable and stylish ride, it’s hard to go wrong with a pre-owned or brand-new Cadillac. Stop on out to Wiesner of Huntsville to see just what we have in store!
2013 Cadillac Escalade
With the all-new 2015 Cadillac Escalade on the verge of debut, we here at Wiesner of Huntsville thought it would be the perfect time to feature the well-known and luxurious SUV, and some hints we’ve heard about it in the news lately.
For one, there’s word out on the internet streets that Cadillac is considering building a larger SUV-crossover and using the Escalade name to brand it. However, no decisions have been made final yet. On the upside, though, executives at Cadillac are confident that the Escalade has plenty of value and branding power to carry newer potential vehicles under its name.
As you may have heard the 2015 Cadillac Escalade is about to debut, and is expected to be much less grandiose than normal. In order to differentiate from competitors like the Tahoe and Yukon, the new Escalade is predicted to have distinguished changes, including a redesigned front end and full LED tail lamps that extend from the bumper to the top of the tailgate. The interior has been redesigned as well to include new technology and a more unique look.
What do you think about these new changes? We can’t wait to see it!
