2007 Cadillac

2007 Cadillac CTS

Cadillac's mid-sized, rear-drive sport sedan offers three engine choices -- a standard 2.8 liter V-6 with 210 horsepower, mid-range 3.6 liter V-6 with 255 horsepower and (in the high-performance CTS-V), a 6.0 liter V-8 with 400 horsepower. The two V-6 engines may be teamed with either six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmissions -- while the CTS-V comes only with a heavy-duty Tremec-built six-speed manual transmission. The CTS-V also gets a specific sport tuned suspension, high-capacity brakes and exterior and interior trim upgrades. XM NavTraffic, which provides continuously updated traffic information, is now standard in cars equipped with the optional DVD navigation system. The angular styling of the CTS remains its signature calling card -- and the car delivers high-performance handling and braking capacity with reasonable ride quality and plenty of attitude.

2007 Cadillac DTS

This front-drive, full-size luxury sedan remains the most traditional model in the Cadillac lineup. It can set five or six passengers (depending on seat configuration) and is designed to appeal to buyers who favor a large and powerful sedan with conservative styling, a soft ride, gentle handling and a plush interior. For 2007, the DTS is updated with new exterior colors -- Mystic Gray, Gold Mist, White Diamond (midyear), Cognac Frost (midyear) and MaryKay. In addition, options packages are streamlined and all models get a new analog clock and standard chrome wheels. Models equipped with GM's OnStar concierge system get turn-by-turn navigation assistance. The DTS offers buyers a choice of either a 275-horsepower 4.6 liter Northstar V-8 or a 292-horsepower version of the same engine. Both come mated to a four-speed automatic gearbox. StabiliTrak stability control with brake assist and Magnetic Ride Control help refine the car's ride and handling characteristics. Six airbags and a long list of amenities are standard. Popular options such as XM satellite radio, cargo mat and rear sunshades are now offered with a wider variety of optional equipment packages than previously.

2007 Cadillac Escalade

The luxury version of the Chevrolet Tahoe full-size SUV comes in standard length, the longer ESV, and the EXT, which is an SUV/pickup truck combination that shares its configuration with the Chevrolet Avalanche. All versions have been completely revised for 2007. In addition to updated exterior and interiors and a new, wider-track chassis and improved suspension system, all '07 Escalade variants are now powered by a standard 6.2 liter, 403 horsepower V-8 engine teamed with a new six-speed automatic transmission. Both rear-drive and all-wheel-drive formats are available, with seating capacity for seven in the ESV, which is 21 inches longer than the standard Escalade. EXT models offer a removable Midgate system that enables the owner to convert the EXT from a five-passenger SUV into a two-passenger pickup with nine feet of protected and secured storage. The Midgate, located behind the rear seat, can be folded into the cabin-- expanding the cargo area from five feet to eight feet, for a total of 101 cubic feet of space. A lockable standard tonneau cover protects items in the cargo bed, or can be removed entirely for added space. Head curtain side air bags with rollover protection for all rows are standard, as are StabiliTrak stability control, ABS brakes, a power rear liftgate, power fold-and-tumble second-row seats and 18-inch rims. Available equipment includes 22-inch rims, an available eight-inch touch-screen navigation system, Bose 5.1 Digital Surround Sound system and power-actuated running boards. Max tow rating is 7,800-lbs. when properly equipped.

2007 Cadillac SRX

This crisply styled mid-size crossover sport-utility vehicle is built off the same platform as the rear-drive CTS and STS sports sedans. For 2007, the SRX gets an updated interior, new Sport Package with 20-inch wheels and limited slip axle, Bose 5.1 Digital Surround sound option (base models get upgraded to a newly standard Bose system) and new six-speed automatic transmission on models equipped with the optional 4.6 liter, 320 horsepower Northstar V-8 engine. A 3.6 liter, 260 horsepower V-6 is the standard engine in SRX -- teamed with a five-speed automatic. SRX is available in either rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive formats. GM's StabiliTrak electronic stability system comes standard; Magnetic Ride Control is optional. The SRX's interior can hold as many as seven passengers with the optional power-folding third-row seat. A navigation system is standard on the V-8 version and is optional with the V-6. The Sport Package includes front and rear sport fascias, new body-colored grille with V-Series-style mesh backing, 4-inch dual polished exhaust tips, the six-speed automatic transmission with Driver Shift control and optional 20-inch Sport wheels with high-performance tires. The air bag system in the SRX has been upgraded with weight-and-size sensing Passenger Side Inflatable Restraint (PSIR) suppression; this feature uses sensors to detect the occupant?s size and enable or disable the air bag automatically. OnStar-equipped models also get turn-by-turn navigation assistance.

2007 Cadillac STS

The rear-drive STS luxury-sport sedan gets a new six-speed automatic transmission when ordered with the optional 4.6 liter, 320 horsepower Northstar V-8 engine.

2007 Cadillac XLR

Cadillac's sporty two-seat retractable hardtop roadster is based on the Chevrolet Corvette, but is defined by its own sharp-edged styling and exclusive 4.6 liter, 320 horsepower Northstar V-8 engine. For 2007, the XLR is updated with a new ultra luxury Platinum model, a Passion Red special edition model, standard six-speed automatic transmission, updated OnStar system with turn-by-turn navigation assistance and a redesigned key fob.
