In 2004, Cadillac created a sports sedan legend as the first CTS-V first entered dealership showrooms. Since then, the sedan has changed engines twice from its original LS6 V8.
The First Generation:
The CTS-V first generation appeared on the market in 2004 and production for it ended in 2007. Two engine options were available over the course of this generation: 5.7L LS6 V8 OHV engine which was only offered the first year of production and the 6.0L LS2 V8 OHV engine that picked up where the LS6 left off. Only a 6 speed manual was offered. The LS6 came from the C5 gen Corvette Z06 which produced 400hp at 6,000 RPM and 395 lb*ft of torque at 4,800 RPM. The LS2 produced 400hp @ 6,000 RPM and 395 lb*ft of torque at 4,400 RPM. Read the rest of this entry »
The is a luxury crossover sport utility vehicle. It has gone through two different incarnations. The first generation of the SRX that the Cadillac had to offer borrowed some of the design components of the rear wheel drive CTS sports sedan, adding options such as a third row of seating and a V8 engine. The second generation of SRX instead uses a front wheel drive, it is smaller, offering less seating, and the engine lines available top out at a V6.
As with the majority of crossovers, the SRX borrows more of its design features from cars than from trucks. The end product is smoother to ride in, handles better, and gets moving faster than a more truck inspired design would.
The second generation of SRX, again, is smaller. It was released in 2010. The V6 it comes with offers up 265 horsepower and 223 pound-feet of pulling power. Buyers also have the option of deciding to purchase a meatier V6 with 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The former can be purchased with either front wheel drive or all wheel drive, while the latter is available only with an all wheel drive. Read the rest of this entry »
