D3 Cadillac CTS-V Tuned

When Matt Farah headed down to visit Southern California tuner D3 to drive a 750 hp D3 Cadillac CTS-V, the notion that he may not like it simply didn’t exist. However after driving it he came away with far more negatives than positives which, and let’s be honest here, is not really Matt’s way. From the automatic transmission to the suspension that was WAY too low, this CTS-V may have been a bit on the “overdone” side. Click through to check it out and see why when building a Cadillac CTS-V that an automatic transmission is never the correct way to go.

Muscle Haulers

Most people think that just because you’ve got a couple of kids, a job and the need to ravage The Home Depot on occasion that owning a fun family hauler is out of the question. However BIG MUSCLE is here to let you know that we’ve got you covered. Don’t believe me? How does a combined total of 1,111 horsepower and top speeds of over 185 mph sound? We recently headed up to Monticello Motor Club in Monticello, NY with a few wicked family trucksters, a special guest and one bad ass Mopar that served as our BIG MUSCLE transport for the afternoon.

2012 Cadillac Escalade SLP 525 Supercharged

Posted in Cadillac, Car Reviews, Domestic, Domestic Review, Domestic Rides, General, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | March 4th, 2012 | 1 Response |

Cadillac Escalade SLP

At over 6,000 lbs. the Cadillac Escalade is not what you would call “light on its feet”. In fact in stock form the big Caddy is a downright slug on anything but a pin-straight road. However after the guys at SLP got a hold of it, all of that changed. You see they’ve managed to make this big American Luxo-box, dare I say it… fast! It’ll sprint to 60 mph in under 6-seconds, run the 1/4 mile in 13.6 and pull .80 on the skid pad. People, those are great numbers for anything much less a 6,000 pound SUV. Granted it probably gets about 4 mpg when driven hard, but with those numbers who really cares. In my opinion this sucker is a big win both for Cadillac and the guys at SLP. Well done gentlemen, well done indeed.

Cadillac ATS Tackles the “Green Hell”

2013 Cadillac ATS

It’s no secret that Cadillac has a lot riding on their new ATS sports sedan. I mean let’s face it, if you come out saying your going to best the BMW 3-series well then, you’ve really got your work cut out for you. Set to air on Super Bowl Sunday Cadillac is touting the fact that the ATS was developed at the Nürburgring, that wonderful track in Germany that’s in the wet dreams of every automotive enthusiast. We know that the ATS will have a variety of engines ranging from a 2.0L turbo-four, to a 3.6L V6, to a (we hope) 470 hp V8, but will these power plants be enough to topple one of the greatest small sedans ever? We’ll soon find out I suppose, we’ll soon find out…

Why being a car guy sucks.

1972 Ford Galaxie

It would’ve been so much easier if I was just into video games or something because there are times when being a car guy totally sucks. You see I don’t just like cars, I love them. In fact every aspect of my life revolves around them. I write about them, build them, race them, film them… hell, they encompass everything I do. Who knew that back in the day when I was playing with Matchbox and remote control cars that it would turn into an obsession that has taken over my life. The problem is this; I want everything, but the fatal combination of a writers salary and lack of space prevent this from happening. Sure being in the industry helps, as we get to drive press cars and go to different automotive related events, but still, that doesn’t change the fact that I jones for something different in the garage on a daily basis. Take this near perfect 1972 Ford Galaxie 500 that I spied recently on eBay. Folks, if I had the money this sucker would be in my garage tomorrow. Sure it’s big and cumbersome, but it’s a classic piece of American iron that I would love to use as a daily driver. Maybe it’s because it’s different, or maybe its because cars like this remind me of my childhood growing up in the 1970’s. Whatever the reason though, road yachts like this always get my blood pumping.

2012 Cadillac SRX4 Premium: RideLust Review

2012 Cadillac SRX4 Premium

Thumbs Up: Comfortable, quiet and reasonably priced for the segment.

Thumbs Down: Meaty A and B pillars impact visibility.

Buy This Car If: You want a luxury crossover with a unique sense of style.

Shortly before its demise, GM used the slogan, “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile” to shill for its near-luxury division. While the slogan took some artistic license back then (there was a reason why Oldsmobile went out of business, after all), the motto would be very appropriate to use for Cadillac today. After decades of obscurity, bizarre product choices and cars designed exclusively for those who hated to drive, Cadillac has turned a corner. Read More…
