The 2011 Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan: Sporty & Spicy

Caddy CTS Sport Sedan at Les Stanford Cadillac in Dearborn MIThe 2011 Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan is a glorious harmony of design, advanced technology and performance. This 3 liter, 270 horsepower V6 engine is unique in that it is a direct injection engine. This means that the gasoline is delivered more directly, which results in better fuel efficiency. This extremely powerful engine comes with an Eaton supercharger in order to reduce the noise that used to be a drawback to supercharged engines. The Eaton supercharger also improves engine performance by strictly controlling the temperature of the air taken into the engine.

It is the precisely balanced chassis of the CTS Sport Sedan that has been most praised. The original chassis and suspension were tested and tweaked on the famous Nürburgring track in Germany, which has resulted in unparalleled balance and handling. StabiliTrak is a system that electronically monitors and controls the CTS Sport Sedan’s stability though the use of sensors which identify differences in the direction of the car and the angle of the steering wheel. By doing this, StabiliTrak is able to administer the proper amount of force to the related brakes, thus allowing the driver to perfectly control the car and keep it on track. Another impressive feature is the Performance Traction Management system which is usually used on championship race cars. To make the best of unsatisfactory road and weather conditions this electronic system not only monitors and deals with any wheel slippage, but it also ensures record acceleration by automatically matching tire grip with the amount of torque that is delivered.

Cadillac’s 2011 CTS Sport Sedan has some other impressive features which include a technologically advanced navigational system, whose touch screen can either pop up or be stowed away, as well as Bluetooth, a Bose surround sound system, a USP port, iPod integration and a 40 gigabyte hard drive.

The Chevy Colorado Midsize Pickup Truck: Just the Right Size

2012 Chevy Coloardo at Les Stanford Chevrolet in Dearborn MIThe new 2012 Chevy Colorado is a versatile truck. Many benefits come from features both standard and optional, from safety to convenience.

Four-wheel anti-lock brakes and stability control with traction control are valuable systems to have when needing to make emergency maneuvers. While they may help give more control and keep the vehicle on the road, more features are available should an accident happen involving a crash. Six airbags for the driver, front passenger and head-curtain side impact airbags give protection to the occupants. The steel safety cage and side-impact protection door beams reduce damage to the cab, reducing further injury.

As with most pickup trucks, the Colorado has both a 2WD and a 4×4 drive train. The two-wheel drive is efficient for drivers in mild weather climates and is best for fuel economy. In climates or terrains where four-wheel drive is needed, touch button shifting is available to easily switch between the two drives.

Depending on the truck’s size, engine and optional equipment, it’s possible to get up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway and 18 miles per gallon for city driving.

One of the major reasons to own a pickup truck is the ability to haul things. The Colorado is available with either a standard or a short cargo bed, making it easy to have just the right amount of space. A drop-in bed liner comes standard to help protect the bed bottom from scratches and dents.

If the cargo bed alone doesn’t have enough room for everything, a trailering package is available. With a maximum payload of up to 1,400 pounds, it should be quite possible to haul around practically anything.
