Cadillac Returns To Europe, But With Modest Expectations

The past 18 months or so haven't been easy for General Motors, here or abroad.

First Drive: 2010 Cadillac SRX Turbo

Let's get this straight, out of the gate: there's no Cadillac SRX-V in the works, and even though this car we're looping around GM's Milford Proving Grounds is following in the well-worn tracks of Corvettes, it's not the chest-thumping Corvette challenger that, say, Cadillac's own CTS-V might be...Read More»

My, how things have changes: Consider that the 2000 Escalade is credited with helping save Cadillac from certain disaster. Now that vehicle is somewhat of a pariah.
