Gig Harbor, WA, United States
This car was bought new in Southern Oregon and has
had just 3 owners. Mechanic owned since 1995, the car has been
exceptionally well cared for and always garaged. ??In the photo above you'll
notice the grill medallion with the Roman numeral 14. These
"Heritage of Ownership" medallions are given to loyal Cadillac
customers with a long history of new car purchases. In this case, the
original owner was awarded his 14th medallion with the purchase of this 1990
Brougham. I've seen lots of medallions with fives and sixes, sometimes up
to 10, but never to this level. The original owner was definitely a
Cadillac man.??The Brougham d'Elegance was Cadillac's top model offering for 1990
and was well optioned. On top of that, this particular car was ordered
with option code V4S, which had a specific interior trim design including
tufted multi-button leather seats, three overhead assist handles, six-way power
passenger seat adjuster, illuminated driver and passenger visor vanity mirrors,
rear sail pane reading lights, Twilight Sentinel, power trunk lid pull-down,
heated mirrors and factory alarm. Additionally, special "Autumn
Maple Firemist" paint was ordered, which was an extra cost option.
Lastly, this car features the desirable 5.7L V8, much preferred over the 5.0L
powerplant. To sum it up, this car is loaded.??
Finished in Autumn Maple Firemist, code 89, this
car wears the color well. The paint finish is glass smooth with excellent
gloss and depth. The car has zero rust issues anywhere; this is an Oregon car, the land
that rust forgot. Tires are quality Michelin XW4's with good tread.

Cadillac is moving swiftly to change up its naming scheme. Barely over a week ago we received our first indication that it was considering a different name its the upcoming flagship sedan previously known as LTS. Then Cadillac not only revealed the model would be called CT6, but announced that it would set the stage with a massive overhaul of its model nomenclature. And now we have another piece of the puzzle.

According to Forbes, Cadillac will not only rename its sedans with the letters CT, but will realign its utility vehicles under the banner of XT - both to be followed by a number indicating its place in the lineup. The one exception will be the Escalade, whose nameplate has such a strong following that it would be foolish for Cadillac to cast it aside. That leaves only the SRX (pictured above), but makes room for a new crop of crossovers said to be in the works.
It's a similar approach which Cadillac's new boss Johan de Nysschen took in revising the naming scheme at Infiniti. While it's bound to ruffle some feathers and scratch some heads in the beginning - especially since the company's current flagship sedan is called XTS - it's equally sure to make sense of it all in the long run. All we need to know now is what Nysschen and his marketing chief Uwe Ellinghaus plan to call the coupes.
We all know that self-driving cars are coming. It's not so much a question of If so much as When. And when it comes to General Motors products, we now have something of a date to work with, as Cadillac has announced plans to roll out what it is calling Super Cruise technology in an unnamed new model within the next two years. As you would expect, this new tech can speed the car up, slow it down and keep it in its intended lane, but GM isn't expected to release a fully self-driving car, saying that it will still require "an attentive driver."

We're not quite sure what new model Cadillac will use to launch this new technology, but our best guess would be its upcoming LTS sedan. Other possibilities may include a new crossover - we've heard rumors of CUVS coming from Caddy both above and below the current SRX - or entry-level sedan, but those seem less likely than a high-dollar flagship like the LTS.
The next techy bit of kit currently being shown off by Cadillac engineers includes vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, technology which would seemingly allow cars to travel in close proximity to one another, with less danger of collisions. According to our friends at Engadget, GM is working with the University of Michigan to outfit some 120 miles of roads in and around Detroit, MI, with the requisite sensors to make all this technology possible.
Automakers always face a difficult decision when it comes to styling their cars. Design them too blandly and nobody will get excited about them. But style them too aggressively and they'll often end up turning off potential buyers.
Cadillac, for its part, is no stranger to aggressive design, but when it came to the new ATS Coupe, it elected to tone things down a bit. Speaking with The Detroit News in a wide-ranging interview, Cadillac design director Bob Boniface revealed that the original design for its compact coupe was edgier - closer to that of the CTS Coupe - with a wedgier profile, a more steeply raked beltline and a more severe grille. But potential customers surveyed in clinics apparently didn't like it. They found it looked heavy, inefficient and not fun to drive. So Boniface and his team literally went back to the drawing board and "took as much visual mass out of the car as [they] could." The resulting coupe, while handsome, looks far more similar to its four-door companion than did Cadillac's CTS.
What do you think, does the new ATS Coupe look just right, or is it too conservative? Voice your opinion in our quick online poll.
