Everyone loves the 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport…

Its a lot like a love triangle.  Instead of Edward, Bella and Jacob, though, it involves Edmunds.com, the 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport Sedan, and Tom Naquin Chevrolet Cadillac customers.  And no one gets their heart broken.

It’s nice when the expert reviewers and customers agree. For the Cadillac CTS Vsport, they line up perfectly.

Excellent Performer, “Fun To Drive”

Edmunds.com calls the 2014 CTS-V “one of GM’s best-ever sedans” and a sports car with luxury features, refined handling capability and unusual cohesiveness between brakes, chassis and thrust.

The CTS Vsport received an overall “A” rating from Edumunds.com.  Contributing to the excellent rating were grades of “A” for Performance, noting the car as a ‘truly balanced performer’.  The vehicle also received an “A” grade for the Fun To Drive category.

Even GM loves the Cadillac CTS Vsport

Of course, GM couldn’t agree more.  “These recognitions further solidify Cadillac’s continued elevation to the heart of the luxury market,” said Bill Peffer, U.S. vice president of Cadillac sales and service. “It’s gratifying to see the experts and buyers agree that Cadillac offers one of the strongest lineups available on the market.”

This isn’t the first award the Cadillac brand has received recently.  Last year, the Cadillac CTS received Motor Trends’ Car of the year, Car and Driver’s 10 Best as well as Road & Track’s 2013 Luxury Car. Earlier this month, Automobile Magazine named the car its 2014 All-Star.

Too often love triangles end tragically.  But when Edmunds.com, Cadillac CTS Vsport and drivers got together, everyone came out a winner.

Chevy Announces Performance Transmission for 2015 Chevy Corvette

If you enjoy performance driving, then you will like the latest news from Chevrolet. The automaker has announced that the 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray will offer a brand-new eight-speed automatic transmission that will be designed specifically for performance driving.

(The 2014 model recently won the North American Car of the Year!)

Bill Goodrich, an assistant chief engineer for automatic transmissions at General Motors, says, “It was designed to enhance the Stingray’s driving experience, with performance on par with dual-clutch designs, but without sacrificing refinement.”

The new eight-speed automatic is designed to be paired with the Stingray’s 6.2-liter V8 engine. Chevrolet predicts a 5% increase in fuel economy with the new transmission, as it is eight pounds lighter than the six-speed transmission it replaces.

Offering paddle shifters and full manual control over gear changes, the eight-speed automatic should be able to complete wide-open-throttle upshifts up to 8/100ths of a second quicker than the new Porsche 911 Carrera’s gearbox.

While you eagerly await the new 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray and its eight-speed transmission, why not stop by Tom Naquin Chevrolet today to test drive the six-speed version?
