2012 Cadillac CTS versus Infiniti M56x All-Wheel-Drive Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Cadillac CTS Sport wagon and the Infiniti M56 both come with all-wheel-drive. The Cadillac's Borg Warner system "uses sophisticated controls and algorithms to augment vehicle handling and traction by optimally using grip at both the front and rear wheels," according to Cadillac. It can shift up to 100% of available torque to the front axle if needed. The 2012 Infiniti's M56x All-Wheel-Drive system is designed "specifically for a front engine/rear-wheel drive biased setup. 0 to 50 percent of the power can be sent to the front wheels for better control. The active brake limited slip differential can shift power side to side. The system uses an advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes torque to the wheels (0:100 up to 50:50 front to rear) according to road and driving conditions." according to Infiniti. So which is better up Lick Skillet Road (America's steepest country road) when it's muddy, wet and slick? Watch the video to find out in this All-wheel-drive mashup review.





2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0L Turbo Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/cts/2014/?id=32972 In the past the CTS had to serve 2 roles for Cadillac: it was first the entry level car and second was the BMW 5-Series competitor. But now with the ATS; the 2014 Cadillac CTS has grown a couple of inches and can finally just be a mid-sized luxury car. The new redesigned CTS looks a lot like the ATS though and that is either a good thing or bad thing depending on what you think of Cadillac's new design direction. The CTS has a base price of $39,495 with the top-of-the-line model going for $69,070. Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 272 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic and fuel economy figures are 19 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. The most important part of a luxury car is the interior. The interior of the 2014 Cadillac CTS says "you have arrived." There are nice soft-touch leather materials along with natural wood trim that gives this car a "German feel." The suspension has the GM Magnetic Ride Controlled Shocks that really give the CTS a nice luxurious ride quality. This Cadillac CTS tested here is the Premium model which is loaded with all the gadgets and technology you would expect out of a high-end German luxury car. Some of the systems include: Adaptive Cruise Control, a Self-Parking System, and a digital gauge cluster just to name a few.

A Day in the Life of an Electric Car
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) In the very near future will we all be driving electric cars? That's a question that only 10 years ago seemed like a dream, but today with all electric cars like the 2012 Nissan Leaf, it doesn't seem so far fetched. Of course unlike, gasoline powered cars, electric cars can't be filled up at your local gas station in a few minutes. Once they run our of juice...you are well and truly stuck. This is called range anxiety and it can be all too real. We decide to find out just how real by spending a day in the life of the all new Nissan Leaf.

2012 Cadillac CTS
Now in its fifth model year, the Cadillac CTS has held up well compared to other entries in the midsize luxury sedan segment, according to Cars.com editor Mike Hanley. The CTS has a great interior and a refined feeling ride, says Hanley. But does it have what it takes to beat the BMW 5 Series in the handling department?





2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0T Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF It's been decades since Cadillac produced the "Cadillac" of anything. However, when car buffs dismiss the only American luxury brand left, they fail to see Cadillac's march forward. 2002 brought the first RWD Cadillac since the Fleetwoood. A year later the XLR roadster hit, followed in 2004 by Cadillac's first 5-Series fighter, the STS. Not everything was rosy. The original CTS drove like a BMW but lacked charm and luxury fittings. The XLR was based on a Corvette, which made for excellent road manners, but the Northstar engine didn't have the oomph. The STS sounded like a good idea, but the half-step CTS wasn't much smaller and ultimately shoppers weren't interested in a bargain option. That brings us to the new ATS and CTS. Ditching the "more car for less money" mantra, the ATS has been created to fight the C/3/IS leaving the CTS free to battle the E/5/GS head-on. Can Caddy's sensible new strategy deliver the one-two punch fans have hoped for? I snagged a CTS 2.0T for a week to find out. I found the outgoing CTS a little discordant, but 2014 brings an elegant more aggressive refresh. GM's Art and Science theme has matured from "cubism gone wrong" to shapes that flow and jibe with a larger grille and softer creases. The 5-Series continues to go for elegant and restrained, I find the XF and A6′s design a mixture of plain-Jane and snazzy headlamps while the Infiniti Q5o and Lexus GS are going for flowing elegance. The demur side profile continues with a simple character line to draw your eye from front to rear. One thing you'll notice during that eye-movement is the distinct RWD proportions that separate the CTS, E, 5, GS, XF and Q50 from the long-nosed Audi A6 and near-luxury FWD options. Out back the CTS' rump is a bit less exciting but employs all the latest luxury cues from hidden Exhaust tops to light piped tail lamps. I was hoping Caddy's fins would be further resurrected, but the "proto fins" on the XTS are absent. Pity. Obvious from every angle is an attention to build quality absent from earlier generations with perfect panel gaps and seams. Unfortunately, the first thing you'll notice out on the road is the coarse sound from under the hood. GM's 2.0L engine is no less refined than BMW or Mercedes' four-bangers, but the difference is you can hear the engine in the CTS. In fact, based on the overall quietness of the cabin (a competitive 67 dB at 50 MPH), I can only conclude that Cadillac designed the engine to be heard. I don't mind hearing the 3.6L V6, but most luxury shoppers would prefer not to be reminded they chose the rational engine every time they get on the freeway. On the bright side, because GM does not offer start/stop tech, shoppers are spared the inelegant starts and stops that characterize 528i city driving. While I'm picking nits, the 6-speed found in the 2.0T and most 3.6 models lacks the ratio spread and shift smoothness of the ZF 8-speed automatic found in most of the competition. The reason I label those flaws as mere nits is because of how the CTS accomplishes every other task on the road. Acceleration to 60 happens a 4/10ths faster than an E350, a half-second faster than the 528i, a full second faster than a GS350, and practically years ahead of the A6 2.0T. Part of this has to do with the engine's superior torque curve and higher horsepower numbers, but plenty has to do with curb weight. At 3,616 lbs, the CTS 2.oT is 200lbs lighter than the BMW or Lexus, 400lbs lighter than an E350. The comparable Audi A6 would be the front-wheel-drive 2.0T model with the CVT at 3,726. If you think that's an unfair comparison, the 2.0T with Quattro is 3,900lbs and does little to correct the A6′s front-heavy weight balance.

2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe 6MT Walkaround, Start Up, Exhaust, Review
Have a look at GM's aggressively styled CTS Coupe, the monster Corvette ZR1 motor makes it even more interesting, but if you ask our senior editor Christian, he might say that the interior fit and finish needs some work to keep up with those pricey Europeans. "Though its practicality is disappointing, the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe delivers a combination of world-class performance, style and value that's tough to beat." (Edmunds.com)
