Cadillac's sporty two-seat convertible flagship car is based on the venerable Chevrolet Corvette, though it comes with its own sharp-edged styling, exclusive powertrains, and a power retractable hardtop. Ample power comes from a 320-horsepower version of Cadillac's 4.6-liter "Northstar" V-8 engine (mated to a five-speed automatic transmission), with 0-to-60 mph times clocking in at around six seconds. Not fast enough? The XLR-V version debuts for 2006 and it packs a 469-horsepower supercharged 4.4-liter dual overhead-cam Northstar V-8 engine and can reach 60 mph in less than five seconds. Also included is a six-speed automatic transmission with a "Driver Shift Control" function for quasi-manual operation, along with various suspension, tire, and braking upgrades. Included across the line are such chassis control systems as StabiliTrak stability control, Magnasteer power steering and Magnetic Ride Control, and a full range of high-tech features. Adaptive headlamps that can help illuminate the road around corners are new for 2006, as is a hidden antenna for the standard XM Satellite Radio. A revised interior center stack includes more wood detail, and Gold Mist and Infrared exterior paint colors replace Satin Nickel and Crimson Pearl.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
