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.

The redesigned 2014 Cadillac CTS will be more powerful, stylish and luxurious than its predecessor, but it will also be much more expensive. With a new starting price of $46,025 (*including $925 for destination), the 2014 CTS represents a price increase of more than $7,000 compared to the 2013 model, but it should be more appropriately sized and equipped to take on rivals like the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which start at $47,800 and $51,900, respectively.

Available trim levels - referred to as Collections - include Luxury, Performance and Premium, offering either a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6 and the choice of either rear- or all-wheel-drive configurations. For more performance, the all-new CTS Vsport model will have an asking price of $59,995. This 420-horsepower model is more powerful than both the BMW 550i and Mercedes E550 and about $2,000 less expensive than both.
There's still no word on what Cadillac has in store for a next-gen CTS-V sedan, but we're guessing power and price will both rise considerably. Scroll down for more info on the 2014 CTS that is set to go on sale this fall.
One of the biggest challenges automakers face when designing a high-performance car is making sure that it is both fast and reliable. For General Motors, any car that might be taken to the track by its owner - like the Corvette, Camaro Z/28 (shown above) and the Cadillac CTS-V, for example - undergoes a rigorous and strenuous 24-hour test by engineers at the Milford Proving Grounds, as pointed out by Car and Driver.

We've posted on this topic in the past - on a video showing the Camaro ZL1 being brutalized, for instance - but this article gives a more in-depth look at what actually happens behind the scenes... including what that poor ZL1 went through. Though the test isn't for 24 hours straight, the cars are pushed as hard as possible by some of GM's best drivers with only the brakes and tires replaced frequently.
We don't want to ruin the fun for you, but it is an interesting article that tells just some of what GM does to develop its sports cars. Check out the full article over at Car and Driver for the rest of the story.
Cadillac is in the process of applying the new wreathless emblem across its range one model at a time, but rather than simply slap the new logo on the existing models, it's taking the opportunity to roll out some revisions as well. First came the ATS coupe, followed by the updated ATS sedan, and now the flagship brand in the General Motors portfolio has quietly announced some revisions for the CTS sedan as well.
For the 2015 model year, the CTS - which was just introduced last year - gets a revised front end with that wreathless crest but also a new chrome grille with active aero elements on standard models and a black-chrome grille on the Vsport. The revised grille is flanked by new headlights, but behind them the engine lineup carries over: a 2.0-liter turbo four with 272 horsepower, a 3.6-liter V6 with 321 hp or - in the Vsport performance model - a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 with 420 hp that's still the most powerful V6 GM has ever made. All engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission (ditching the six-speed auto on previous versions) and (apart from the RWD Vsport) can be had in rear- or all-wheel-drive flavors.
Cadillac has also given the updated CTS some new electronics (including inductive smartphone charging, onboard wifi, and more advanced parking and lane assist systems) as well as new wheels, trims and color options, details on which you can read in the press release below.
