The All-New 2014 Cadillac CTS
In recent years, Cadillac has engineered a historic renaissance. The CTS is the brand's centerpiece, and the 2014 model is the third-generation CTS sedan to debut. The all-new 2014 CTS is based on the high-performing rear-drive architecture of the award-winning ATS sport sedan, moving Cadillac into the prestigious class of midsize luxury sedans. It will be the segment's lightest car, enabling the most agile driving dynamics in the class. A range of power-dense powertrains underpin its performance, including the all-new Cadillac Twin-Turbo engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
The new CTS sedan is the first Cadillac to offer Automatic Parking Assist, which enables the car to park itself in parallel spaces. The new model also features Cadillac's patented Safety Alert Seat technology, 10 standard air bags, and the brand's signature infotainment system, CUE. OnStar is standard for one year. Production of the 2014 CTS begins this fall in Lansing, Mich.
Buick Wins Kelley Blue Book 2013 Brand Image Award for "Best Value Luxury Brand"
The 2013 Brand Image Awards, presented to the top brands in 13 categories, are based on consumer automotive perception data from Kelley Blue Book Market Intelligence's Brand Watch study. This year Buick was awarded the title of "Best Value Luxury Brand."
The New 2014 Buick LaCrosse
To give customers more reasons to rediscover Buick, the new LaCrosse features more luxury amenities, new radar- and camera-based safety features, Adaptive Cruise Control, the brand's next-generation IntelliLink infotainment system, and Buick's QuietTuning engineering process that reduces noise in the cabin - making it one of the quietest in the segment. The new LaCrosse goes on sale this summer.
The New 2014 Buick Regal
According to Buick, nearly half of new Regal buyers are conquests who are new to Buick, and they represent the youngest median age among the brand's lineup. The new 2014 Regal midsize sedan is a more expressive, more connected and more technologically advanced version of its predecessor. The new Regal introduces new safety technologies and a more refined turbo engine - along with the introduction of all-wheel drive. In-vehicle connectivity is enhanced with next-generation IntelliLink. Adaptive Cruise Control is also offered. It senses traffic in front of the Regal to adjust vehicle speed, including stopping the vehicle in heavy traffic and accelerating again. The new Regal goes on sale this fall.
