Cadillac In-Car Connectivity

The importance of in-car connectivity is continuing to grow as technology advances and Cadillac is making sure they stay up on it! The Cadillac in-car connectivity has recently grown with two additional systems- OnStar 4G LTE and the CUE Collection suite of applications.

In-Car Connectivity

The new technology will be equipped in the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe and will be the first model to have it, but we are sure to see it on other models in the near future! These technology additions have put Cadillac at the top of the technology curve!

The OnStar 4G LTE is just like your 4G cell phones, they are faster and have a more reliable connection than those with the 3G connectivity. It will also allow for seven devices to connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot!

The 4G LTE will also power the CUE Collection. The CUE Collection is a new in-car app marketplace where different apps can be organized, added and deleted on an eight-inch touch screen.

Make sure you are connected with the new 2015 models that will be on their way to Coral Cadillac sooner than later!

Cadillac ATS Crimson Sport Edition!

The Cadillac ATS is already loved by everyone, but it is about to be even more loved! Cadillac has announced that they are releasing the Cadillac ATS Crimson Sport Edition! Nothing wrong with a little attention to their four-door!

The Cadillac ATS Crimson Sport Edition is, you guessed it, Crimson Red Metallic on the exterior and what a beautiful crimson it is. Just seeing the outside will make you fall in love instantly! The interior will make you swoon just as much though.  With microsuede touchpoints, including the heated steering wheel and shifter we are sure you will be impressed. This is also the first time that the company is offering a microsuede wheel with heat.

 

 

Up until now, the gorgeous crimson red color has only been offered on a CTS-V Coupe and Sport Wagon.  Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind Cadillac ATS Crimson Sport Edition as it will only be available for a short period of time. Both rear- and all-wheel drive will be available as well as the 2.0T Performance or the V6 Premium specifications.

The Cadillac ATS Crimson Sport Edition has started arriving into dealerships at the end of this month and will be here through the spring. Keep an eye out to Coral Cadillac!

Happy National Cleaning Week!

National Cleaning weekThis week is National Cleaning Week in the United States. That sounds like a great excuse to give your Cadillac a good wash. Before you break out the supplies, however, check out our quick list of Do’s and Don’ts. Happy Spring!

  • Don’t: Wait until your car is so dirty you can’t see the paint, or there are other obvious visual clues that it’s dirty.
  • Do: Wash your car on a regular basis, and if you’ve been parked in a particular dirty situation (dirt roads, under a tree dripping sap or loaded with birds).
  • Don’t: wash your car when it’s hot (either from the sun or driving). The water and soap will dry faster, leaving residue and spots.
  • Do: Give your car a good rinse with water before you start with the soap. This will remove all the excess dirt and debris before it gets into the cleaning solutions.
  • Don’t: Use household cleaners, like dish washing soap!
  • Do: Use a car made for car washes. They are usually milder and made to protect your car’s paint job the best.
  • Don’t: Forget to clean the interior!
  • Do: Use a vacuum to remove debris from your interior, and then use a dedicated cleaner for your seats and upholstery. This is especially important if you have leather on the interior of your vehicle.

As always, if you have any questions about car care or maintenance, just ask us at Coral Cadillac!  Check out this great blog by Pep Boys as well for some cleaning tips!

Cadillac and Bose Partner for Luxury Sound in Escalade

Boise Centerpoint®

When you buy a Cadillac, you expect (and receive!) the best quality parts, engineering, and experience possible. That’s why Cadillac and sound partner Bose have come together to upgrade the sound system on the upcoming 2015 Cadillac Escalade!

The new Escalade will have a Centerpoint® surround system, which is the most advanced sound system that has ever been in a Cadillac. Made specifically for the sport utility vehicle, the system is designed to improve the in-cabin experience while driving by using the latest sound technology. It uses 16 speakers placed at strategic points of the cabin to create the same type of sound quality you would expect from a concert. You can see the complete specifics on the press release from Cadillac.

Unlike other luxury brands, this intense sound system will be standard on all 2015 Escalade trim levels. You can read more about what is coming up in the 2015 Cadillac Escalade on our previous Vehicle Spotlight.

The new Escalade is completely redesigned for your modern lifestyle, and we look forward to having it in the dealership soon. Watch this blog for news on its imminent arrival!

The Hollywood Reporter Loves Cadillac’s ELR

The Hollywood Reporter Loves Cadillac’s ELRThe Hollywood Reporter is seen by many as a voice of the entertainment industry, often breaking important news about movies, TV shows, and the like.

So it’s not very often that they review a car! The reviewer, Michael Walker, was given an ELR for a week to drive, and was very impressed! Mr. Walker is in California, the area of the country that Cadillac wants to target the most. He commented that the new sleek styling, based off of the Converj concept, brings the Cadillac brand into the 21st century in a beautiful way. The sound system, by Boise, and the display interface provided appreciated drama when the car was started, in place of the roar of a gas engine.

One of the most impressive complements was when he said that the ELR turned more heads of the young workers on the Paramount lot than when he drove a $300,00 Bentley Mulsanne. To come get your own dose of Hollywood elegance, visit Coral Cadillac today to learn more about the Cadillac ELR plug-in hybrid! You can read the whole review, and see the video, on the Hollywood Reporter’s review page.

Cadillac History: The Cadillac Name and Henry Leland

Cadillac History

We drive Cadillac’s and we love Cadillac’s, but do we know the history of Cadillac? Would you be able to say where the name came from or who Henry Leland is? If you can’t, don’t worry you aren’t the only one!

We at Coral Cadillac believe that it is important to be able to know more about the name we know and love.

Cadillac was founded more than 100 years ago (1902) in Detroit, Michigan by a man named  Henry Leland; a master mechanic and entrepreneur! He decided to name the company after Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, the founder of Detroit!

You also might not have known that the Cadillac Crest was created from inspiration from the Cadillac family’s historic coat of arms!

Cadillac has claimed a lot of firsts throughout its history including the world’s first electric self-starting engine as well as pioneering the integration of computer technology into vehicles and being the first to offer a color other than black.

To learn more, visit the Cadillac History and Heritage website. To own one of your own Cadillac’s and create your own piece of history, visit our lot and check out one of ours!

Car Care Tips: Making the Most of your MPG

Car Care Tips

Cadillac ELR

If your automobile is getting less miles to the gallon than it was advertised, you may want to read this article before you let your spirits down.

Auto specialists all agree: the biggest factor affecting mileage is not the vehicle’s EPA-estimate. Instead, it depends almost entirely on the driver. So if your car is guzzling a bit more gas than you’d like, don’t think you have to get a new one or that you’ve been cheated! Just follow these simple tips to improve your mileage.

First, before you even get in the car, check your tire pressure. The pressure inside your tires decreases over time, which leads to more friction between the tires and the road and more effort from the engine to make the wheels turn. Reversing this by restoring the pressure directly translates into better mileage. It also has the side benefit of reducing tire wear!

Second, on cold mornings, turning on your car a few minutes before heading out will not only give you a warm car to get into but will also warm up the engine oil. This helps the engine to run better and improves your fuel efficiency!

Finally, when you’re behind the wheel, driving more slowly will improve your economy. More specifically, avoid high revs. Automatic cars tend to do this—well, automatically—but if you drive a manual, try to shift earlier than you normally would.

But if all of that still doesn’t get your mileage to where you’d like it to be, try one of our hybrids at Coral Cadillac. That’s guaranteed to work!

Starlight Tablets Funded by Cadillac given to Miami Hospitals

Not too long ago Cadillac funded ten Starlight Tablets for the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and the Miami Children’s Hospital through the WellnessAd Advertising Program. Cadillac partnered with CBS EcoMedia Inc. to make it happen.

In order to celebrate and officially kick off this program, a special “Power On!” luncheon was held at Luca Bella. Prior to this event all of the representatives from the local Cadillac Dealerships took tours at the hospitals to see their impact firsthand!

Tablet

Each hospital received 5 Starlight Tablets that will serve and estimated 4,800 pediatric patients per year! “The Starlight Tablet is an invaluable way to serve the evolving needs of hospitals and children through education, distraction and the healing power of play”!

The Cadillac Local Marketing Association hosted/sponsored the lunch tour and we here at Coral Cadillac are proud to say that we are a contributing member of the Cadillac Local Marketing Association of Dade and Broward counties! Cadillac is doing such a great thing and we are honored to have been a part of it!
