From the smaller ATS to the midsize CTS to the full-size XTS, their sedans have a certain distinguished look. As GM refocused attention on the brand, you could see the influence throughout the product line. Consistent aggressive styling, high-quality interiors and fun-to-drive engine performance has made Cadillac the ultimate domestic luxury brand. The Cadillac renaissance started with the sexy and sculpted CTS. Chiseled and sleek, the one-time concept-car-turned midsize luxury staple has made a mark for itself. Knowing that the CTS was being redesigned for the 2014 model year had me worried. I was already a huge fan of the previous generation CTS, ranking it as one of my all-time favorite vehicles. But, when I got behind the wheel of my tester for the week – the 2014 Cadillac CTS VSport – any worries I had were put aside. Cadillac took one sexy sedan and improved upon it in all capacities. Take for example, the exterior. The sport-inspired look was improved upon while adding 4.2 inches of length to the body. This was a necessary upgrade from the previous model. Somehow, the GM engineers made the grille and front end more slender and more aggressive looking. That’s a win big time. The new LED headlamps are chic and European looking (think Audi). At night, it’s identifiable and a beauty. The CTS VSport engine is something new altogether for Cadillac. The twin-turbo V6 engine makes 420 horsepower and 430 lb./ft. of torque. The sheer speed and performance of the CTS has always been one of my favorites, but now with a V6 it offers refined, controlled power that is so much fun. An eight-speed automatic transmission is the first of its kind for Cadillac. More gears equal more seamless shifting equals top engine performance (not to mention improved fuel economy). Inside the CTS there is luxury that is synonymous with the Cadillac brand. That means leather cloaked seats everywhere, heated seats (front and back), alloy paddle shifters and soft touch points throughout. The interior is both classy and youthful making the CTS attractive to both the traditional Cadillac consumer as well as a more youthful buyer. Cadillac adds their CUE entertainment system to the CTS, and this is a first for this vehicle. As someone who appreciates technology in today’s automobiles, I’ve been appreciative of the CUE system. Some critics have found it cumbersome and slow in responding, but I’ve found that after a brief learning curve, it’s a wonderful infotainment system. The gauges are intuitive and the organization over the driving column makes for great eyes-on-the-road organization of everything you need from navigation to music right above the steering wheel. Yes, the haptic response (think tablet-like swiping) of CUE can be a little awkward at times, but the technology it offers is cool and hip. Perhaps a little more tweaking would make it ideal. I’ll look forward to that in the next revision of the otherwise flawless CTS. There are six various trims for the CTS from the Standard up to the VSport Premium (which is what I tested). The VSport is the only trim with the turbocharged V6, and for me, that’s the best engine option. But also included in this trim are performance package options like driver assistance, adaptive cruise control, assisted braking and collision avoidance assistance. The VSport trim also offers selectable driving modes (just leave it in sport mode and thank me later), sport steering, and 18-inch high-performance tires. The CTS VSport is available only in rear-wheel drive. Despite adding length and weight, the CTS saw a slight improvement in fuel economy with this redesign. Some of this is due to the efficient eight-speed transmission and the redesign in the aerodynamics of the sleek sedan. It has an EPA rating of 16 city and 24 highway. In a week’s worth of lead-footed driving, I averaged a little over 18 MPGs. This included a 200+ mile road trip on mostly highway. With so many trims, the price range for the CTS is vast. This new CTS can be found for under $55,000 for certain trims. The VSport option is more expensive with a price a $69,000. My tester, fully loaded had a final sticker price of $72,140. For someone like me, who doesn’t like change and who thinks why mess with a good thing, the 2014 Cadillac CTS VSport shows that sometimes change is good. And in the redesigned Cadillac CTS, change is really good!

Take my tester for the week – the 2014 Lexus IS250. This compact luxury sedan has stiff competition, most of which have German engineering behind them and sporty European performance. Sure Lexus has its loyalists who appreciate the Japanese brand’s more conservative approach, but one big knock on this sedan has been its lack of excitement, both in looks and in engine performance. This model year features a complete makeover for the IS250 with a new exterior, increased interior space and refined steering and suspension. The goal for all of these tweaks, undoubtedly, was to add some flare and excitement to this sedan. In that regard, the IS250 is a success. The looks are sexy. The squatty front end looks sporty and aggressive. The grille is bold as is the styling on the hood. The side profile is a little more ho hum, and a little what you expect from Lexus, as is the rear, where only wraparound taillights add some excitement. No spoiler for a sports sedan? Come on Lexus! Unfortunately, the Lexus IS250 did not get a new powertrain. The tweaks to the steering and suspension improve the drive performance, but can’t mask what is an underpowered engine. The 2.5-liter, V6 engine seems like it’d get the job done, but it only produces 204 horsepower and 185 lb./ft. of torque. I generally look past the numbers as vehicles can outperform them, but in this case, those numbers seem sluggish and unimpressive because the engine is lacking any sportiness and exciting. If only the engine could match the new, exciting exterior, but it does not. A six-speed automatic transmission is the only tranny available for the sedan. While rear-wheel drive is standard, my tester came with all-wheel drive, which helped make cornering a little more controlled. Inside you see a typical Lexus interior. No plastic touch points, rather soft materials abound and the seats are wrapped in leather and are heated for added comfort. The overall ride experience is quiet and comfortable. Lexus never disappoints in this department. Rear passengers will enjoy more legroom than ever before in the IS250. With a longer, redesigned cabin and wheelbase, the interior feels bigger than most others in the segment. My tester came with the special F-Sport package, which adds special touches both inside and out. The F-sport grille and bumper is especially sexy as are the 18-inch five-spoke wheels. The added navigation package provides extra apps and a touchscreen interface to maneuver between entertainment features and a modern navigation system. Both of these features are nice and improve the sedan, but at more than $4,000 for all the F-Sport features and the navigation package combined, it is a big price to justify. The IS250 comes in only one trim with the only options being AWD or RWD. You can then add certain packages (like a premium package) to make the IS250 what you want it to be. The base price for the RWD 2014 IS250 is highly competitive at $35,000. My tester, which had several add-on packages, had a final price of $44,140. Fuel economy is where the Lexus IS250 begins to impress. The AWD version has an EPA rating of 20 city and 27 highway. In a week’s worth of mostly highway driving I averaged 24 MPGs. Perhaps a four-cylinder engine would yield even better fuel economy, since clearly Lexus engineers aren’t trying to make this sports sedan too powerful as is, with the underpowered V6. Is the 2014 Lexus IS250 putting on airs? Is trying to be something it’s not? Perhaps. It’s definitely a sheep in wolf’s clothes with its sexy, new looks, but its tame, conservative engine.

The former Saturday Night Live star and all-around funny lady has listed her co-op apartment in New York City. Curbed brings word that Wiig is looking to bank $2.595 million for the two-bedroom loft—$1.095 million more than what she paid for the property back in 2009. Wiig, 40, endeared herself to comedy fans as a cast member of Saturday Night Live from 2005 to 2012. In addition to her sketch comedy work, the actress has had roles in a number of feature films, including “Bridesmaids,” “Knocked Up” and “Despicable Me.” Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:25:08 EST http://carproperty.com/kristen-wiig-sells-her-soho-loft-apartment-ad19832923.htm Driver’s Side by Jimmy Dinsmore : Big horn, big time: 2014 Ram 2500 Big Horn is a big, capable weekend warrior http://carproperty.com/big-horn-big-time-2014-ram-2500-big-horn-is-a-big-capable-weekend-warrior-ad15482921.htm You don’t want a heavy-duty pickup truck to be wimpy. And within this segment there’s plenty of workhorse trucks that are up for the task of hauling, towing and weekend warrioring. My tester for the week is not so much a workhorse as a work Ram. The 2014 Ram 2500 Big Horn is near the top of the heavy-duty truck world – and for good reason. My tester was the stout and rugged Big Horn Crew Cab. And it might’ve been better named Gigantic Horn Crew Cab because it was a mammoth truck. And calling it a Crew Cab doesn’t do it justice either, unless you’re talking about the Crew to Game of Thrones. Indeed the Ram 2500 is a massive truck with massive interior space. Even the engine is (what’s the word I’m looking for here) . . . massive. In fact, my tester had the 6.4-liter V8 Mid-Duty Hemi engine, which is one of the new additions to the Ram truck line this year. When most think heavy-duty trucks, they think diesel. And there is a diesel option in the Ram 2500 in the form of a Cummins turbo-diesel engine. If you could describe what you want a big truck to look like, you’d likely end up describing most of the features of the Ram 2500. Stout, sturdy, rugged, masculine – those are just a few of the adjectives to describe the appearance. A shiny, chrome grille with that big Ram icon centered in the middle is far from subtle. The rest of the fit and finish lacks many frills or over styling. Rather, it’s pretty stereotypically a truck - big front end, simple side paneling, and a truck bed with more Ram badging and chrome on it. My tester was a short bed, but there’s a full-size bed option as well. As mentioned, Ram introduced a third engine option to the line this model year. A 5.7-liter V8 engine is the standard engine for the Ram heavy duty, but now there’s the 6.5-liter V8 engine to go along with the diesel option. This 6.5-liter engine is big and full of horsepower and torque. It makes 410 horsepower and 429 lb./ft. of torque. And the Ram 2500 is capable of towing more than five tons. It’s chock full of powerful ability. It’s mated with a six-speed automatic transmission that is quite capable. Controlling this much engine can be daunting. And despite it’s mammoth girth, the Ram actually handles itself quite spryly. For such a big vehicle it’s rather refined. The road noise is limited and passengers won’t even hear much from that big Hemi engine. That all goes hand-in-hand with the refined interior of this truck. Soft touch points are found throughout. It’s as luxurious and high-end as even its rival the GMC Sierra. The second row is beyond cavernous as you could practically fit a third row of seats in the space between the front and back seats. Enjoy the legroom, headroom and comfortable leather seats. The side mirrors are gargantuan, and protrude out so far it almost feels like wings. This makes parking difficult as they don’t slide in, and only fold completely down. And you’ll need to fold them down in order to fit in many spots. While it’s good for towing heavy loads behind the truck, for non-towing driving, it is overkill. Fuel economy ratings by the federal government have not been provided yet for the Ram 2500. But, needless to say, it will fall into the guzzler category. A vehicle this big simply won’t spare you from trips to the gas station. In a week’s worth of driving, mostly on the highway, I averaged around 15 MPG. Obviously, this truck is not meant to be a daily commuter, even though it is up to that task from a comfort standpoint. The base trim Ram 2500 starts at just around $30,000, which is quite reasonable for such a stout, durable worker. But my tester had a starting MSRP of $40,815. With plenty of added options and creature comforts, my tester had a final price tag of $49,965. The diesel version of the Ram can exceed $50,000. But again, consider the purpose of this truck is to haul and tow a recreational vehicle or a boat, and do so with style and comfort. Ram, a division of Chrysler, does an excellent job of marketing itself independently as a rugged, masculine brand. Nothing epitomizes that more than the 2014 Ram 2500. Strong, capable and big, this truck is ready to contend in the heavy-duty truck category. Jimmy Dinsmore is a freelance automotive journalist. Email him at jimmydinsmore@yahoo.com.

Thu, 3 Apr 2014 13:53:55 EST http://carproperty.com/buy-a-lifestyle-davie-fl-southeast-florida-ad55122919.htm Driver’s Side by Jimmy Dinsmore : 2014 Lexus RX450h is incomparable luxury, power, fuel economy http://carproperty.com/2014-lexus-rx450h-is-incomparable-luxury-power-fuel-economy-ad29412918.htm One of the most unfair and inaccurate things I heard someone say about the Lexus RX450h is: “That’s nothing more than a larger Prius with leather.” That statement is absurd. I drove the RX450h for a week, and have driven several Prius (or is it Prii) before and there’s a night and day difference between the two. Yes, this smallish hybrid crossover has similar hybrid technology as its Toyota cousin, but the other than the slight bloodline, the similarities end there. As is the case with most cousins, the RX450h establishes itself with a distinct, very different personality, with looks nothing like a Prius (and that is a good thing). On looks alone, the RX450h is way more Lexus than Toyota (again that’s a good thing). This Lexus has a sculpted, athletic appearance with a squatty roofline. It screams luxury, but looks more aggressive than it really is. In actuality, the RX450h has non-hybrid looks, which is probably intentional. The typical Lexus grille neither dominates nor declines from the aesthetic appeal of this crossover. But unlike some Lexuses (or is Lexii??), the RX450h is not boring. It still has an overall, conservative design, but doesn’t teeter too far to the playing-it-safe side, rather it showcases an updated, modern, sleek design without being too garish. The engine is a 3.5-liter V6 engine mated with a series of batteries to help ease the burden of the engine. And with this engine too, the RX450h is nothing like the underpowered Prius. I found the RX450h to be plenty powerful with enough giddy up off the line to merge safely into traffic. It may lack an impressive 0-60 time, but it’s no sloth either. And with battery assistance, it creates an efficient driving performance. Additionally, it’s whisper quiet inside, which is something I expect from all luxury brands, hybrid or not. Battery packs help to power engine propulsion, starting and also takes responsibility for the RX450’s all-wheel drive system. Without having to handle those responsibilities, the gasoline engine can focus on everything else and makes 295 horsepower. That’s an impressive amount of power for a vehicle that sips fuel and falls in the category of hybrid. You won’t see that kind of power ever from a Prius. Anyone who’s read my reviews regularly know my disdain for continuously variable transmissions. This Lexus has a CVT and of course, I don’t really care for it. The shifts are reserved and held back. From a powertrain standpoint, this is the only flaw within an otherwise fine machine. Inside, everything you’d expect from a Lexus is present inside this crossover. Upscale, high-end touch points are found throughout this vehicle. Real wood trim accentuates the elegance as does soft, comfortable leather, which is found on the steering wheel and all seating surfaces. Rear legroom is vast and despite the design of the roofline, headroom is not bad at all. There is no third-row seat offering, but that’s the reason for the vast amount of second-row space. Often, third-row SUVs cram too much seating into the interior space, costing all passengers comfort. Thankfully, that’s not the case here. A nice infotainment system did not go unnoticed. In the past, I found some Lexus vehicles to be a little behind on their technology offerings, but that’s certainly not the case with this RX450h. The Lexus Remote Touch system feels better this generation than it did a few years ago. It’s less cumbersome to manipulate and is more ergonomically designed for driver’s hand. However, the on-screen menus are still not as intuitive as some of its European counterparts and while it utilizes a lot of technology, more planning and tweaking still needs to be done, in order for me to endorse the full technology offered here. With all the technology that exists, there’s no reason the driver’s eye should ever have to be taken off the road, and that’s not the case here, unfortunately. Fuel economy is segment leading. With an EPA rating of 28 highway and 30 city, the RX450h proves its value in a very green way. Sipping fuel as it propels you in luxury, the RX450 averaged 30 MPG in a week’s worth of driving for me. And that was with the AWD version. This vehicle also comes in a front-wheel drive offering which gets even better fuel economy. The RX450h has one trim only and really only has a handful of options, one of which is the aforementioned AWD. So Lexus keeps things simple in its offerings. Starting price for the Lexus RX450h is $47,810. With a few upgrades to the audio and navigation system as well as the upgrade leather package, my tester had a final price of $55,550. The price is steep for a vehicle lacking room for seven passengers, but in this case, you definitely get what you pay for. And with the fuel savings you get with the RX450h, you can justify the pricepoint a little more. The Lexus RX450h emerges as a leader in its segment. Combining luxury, power and hybrid technology is tough to do. You usually can find two of those qualities, not all three. Yet, the Lexus RX450h is a well-powered, well-appointed crossover hybrid.

Take the Audi Q5 for example. This was already a highly rated darling in the luxury small crossover segment. There was nothing wrong with it. But, Audi made an improvement to it this model year by adding one letter. I tested the Audi SQ5 this week and was left surprised by how good the S is. It made me ponder what the S could possibly stand for. Perhaps it’s S for sporty, thanks to the supercharged V6 engine found in this offering. Or perhaps the S represents sleek as in the sleek exterior style of the SQ5. While the SQ5 has the typical Audi look, with European influences and exuding luxury, the SQ5 adds a modern flare to this SUV’s overall aesthetic appeal. Maybe S stands for subtle, because there’s only a few subtle differences between the SQ5 and the Q5. Both are wrought with luxury and amenities, as only Audi can do. But the subtle differences like the Audi Singleframe grille in Platinum Grey or the aluminum optic exterior mirror housing and the roof spoiler and quad exhaust pipes distinguish the SQ5 with a subtle elegance. The 3.0-liter engine makes 354 horsepower which makes the SQ5 well powered. It’s both fast off the line, but refined in the way it holds the torque so it doesn’t pull. The eight-speed Tiptronic transmission keeps the 346 lb./ft. of torque under control with smooth, proper shifting. The SQ5 has one of the best transmissions I’ve experienced. And of course it has Audi’s Quattro, all-wheel drive performance for superb handling. Inside, there is no shortness of luxury. The SQ5 goes beyond even some standard Audi interiors with suede linings on the door panels and the roof. It’s soft and luxurious everywhere. The interior allows all passengers to be ensconced with soft, comfortable materials. The flat-bottomed steering wheel has a racing feel, but also feels firm and wonderful in your hands. Special SQ5 badging on the seats, the gear shift knob and the door sills let you see what makes the SQ5 special. Audi’s infotainment system integrates with a Multi-Media Interface (MMI). It’s this MMI feature, powered by a dash-mounted joystick controller that can be cumbersome. Once you master it, it becomes more intuitive, but until then it can befuddle the driver and makes for a frustrating experience. Not to be overlooked by all this are the tech-heavy features of the Audi SQ5 including the Google Earth-based navigation system, Audi Connect system and driver assist package. All of these are top-of-the-line, cutting-edge technology features that can’t be found in other competitors. Fuel economy for the SQ5 is middle of the road. It has an EPA rating of 16 city and 23 highway. In a week’s worth of mixed driving, I averaged about 19 MPG. The five-passenger SUV has two trim packages including Premium Plus and Prestige. My tester was the more elite Prestige package which in addition to a slew of standard features also includes adaptive headlights, a blind-spot monitoring system, heated/cooled cupholders and back passenger sunshades. While the regular Q5 has an affordable price tag of $37,000, the SQ5 starts over $50,000. My tester had a final MSRP of $60,845. That’s almost double the price of the Q5. So you’re paying a lot for that one letter. You do get a lot more engine, a lot more luxury and a lot more special from this SUV than you would the more basic QB5. Indeed the Audi SQ5 is special. And that’s probably what the S stands for. This special SUV is yet another homerun for Audi, who is establishing itself as a main competitor in the luxury market. This SUV can compete with any luxury offering from Europe or Asia. Jimmy Dinsmore is a syndicated freelance automotive journalist. Email him at jimmydinsmore@yahoo.com.
