Michael Jaffe – Jim Coleman Cadillac

I’m sorry I haven’t been reporting on all things Cadillac recently. Whereas I am no longer a Cadillac Product Specialist, I still receive emails daily for information, leasing and buying. One of my close friends is a Sales and Leasing Consultant for Jim Coleman Cadillac in Bethesda, Md. If you need anything… buying, leasing, servicing or even collision repair, contact him directly and tell him you read about him here. His name is Michael Jaffee. His phone number is (301) 841-6377 and his email is mjaffee@jimcolemancadillac.com

A lot of big things happening at Cadillac. This past April I went to the New York International Auto Show and saw the All-new Cadillac XTS in person and the all-new Cadillac ATS. Hot hot cars! The best part was to see the live demo of the all-new “CUE,” Cadillac’s touch-based, in-dash entertainment control system. It’s nice to see Cadillac making the technology leap.

The premise is simple: CUE — or “Cadillac User Experience” — builds on the growing adoption of smartphones and tablets in the market, focusing the in-car dashboard electronics system on an 8-inch touch-based LCD interface. Application menu screens are stripped-down, minimalistic and navigable by swipe, as if you were browsing through the different panes of an iPad strapped to your car’s dashboard.

CTS Projected Resale Value Rises With Launch of 2011 Coupe

DETROIT – The resale value for the Cadillac CTS is projected to rise as the luxury brand adds the 2011 CTS Coupe to the line-up, according to the July/August estimates from ALG, an industry benchmark for residual values.

The higher projections are driven by lower incentives, tighter controls on inventory and an emphasis on design, as showcased in the all-new CTS Coupe.

The resale value for the 2011 CTS Sport Sedan after 36 months is projected to be 55 percent of the initial purchase price, about 9 percentage points higher than the projected resale value for the 2010 model, according to ALG. The projected resale value for the 2011 CTS Sport Wagon, compared to the 2010 model, also has risen about 9 percentage points to 54 percent of the initial purchase price.

First Drive: 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe is audacity in motion

There was a time when General Motors was a design leader. Before the Aztek, before the Catera, before the Sunfire and before the Citation, GM was synonymous with bold, strong, emotional automotive design. The General was so good at it that in the 1950s it was able to flood dealerships and stress factories just by tweaking a given model’s sheetmetal a few shades. Imagine anyone caring about a new rear end on a 2011 Chevy Malibu. Yet the revised bodywork of the 1956 Bel Air was a major cultural phenomenon. Read the rest of this entry »

Video: Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon walkaround with Clay Dean

We have no idea how it’ll fare when it goes on sale, but we enjoy imagining the day when we start seeing the CTS-V Sport Wagon on the streets. Since that’s still a ways off, for now we’ll be happy getting our next fix from Cadillac Design Director Clay Dean, who takes us on a walk around the hottest wagon that isn’t named “E63.” Perhaps the most useful thing about it is that it gives us other features to talk about besides the engine – not that we’ll ever really talk about them, but at least we know they’re there.
