I was finally able to get in on the Caddyinfo.com weekly chat. While I didn’t start on time I got to be on with Bruce, Cadillac Jim, and Texas Jim who I feel like I know since I watch them every week. We talk about the ATS becoming a race car and we offer suggestions for the new Cadillac that will debut at the 2015 NY International Auto Show. Sit back and enjoy some Cadillac chat.
I missed another Cadillac Chat since I was thinking the day was Wednesday and it was really Thursday. This week Bruce and Texas Jim has a good conversation about getting Jim’s new Cadillac tuned up now or make a run with it first. They also talked about how much power the 2015 ATS V should have.
I am looking forward to being on one of these days. I think the guys are going to yell at me when I do get on a hangout lol.
Since I have been out in Phoenix all I am seeing is brand new ATS, SRX, and XTS’s. I guess todays press release from Cadillac explains the reasons for that. Cadillac had a record number for sales in the month of May. I wish I could see a breakdown of exactly how many sold by state because I am sure Arizona has to be one of the best states when it comes to sales.

Cadillac Sales Mark Best May Since 2007 Total sales up 6.4 percent year-over-year
DETROIT – Cadillac’s U.S. sales showed continued growth with an increase of 6.4 percent in May, the best May since 2007. More than half of Cadillac buyers in May were new to the brand, not trading in a Cadillac vehicle.
The SRX crossover continues to sell at a record pace through the first five months of 2014, increasing 27 percent year over year. May also marked the best May ever in total and retail sales for the SRX.
With the next-generation 2015 Escalade on sale for a full month, total sales increased 30.3 percent year over year. The Escalade recorded its best May in total sales since 2008 and best May retail sales since 2007.
The 2014 Cadillac CTS sport sedan sales increased 39 percent year over year in May. The brand estimates the CTS has gained an additional 1 percentage point of market share in its midsize luxury car segment. The 2014 CTS has been named Motor Trend Car of the Year, one of Car and Driver’s 10 Best, Road & Track’s 2013 Luxury Car, an Edmunds.com Top Rated Vehicle and an Automobile Magazine 2014 All-Star.
“Cadillac’s elevated product portfolio continues to drive growth and attract new buyers to the brand,” said Bill Peffer, Cadillac U.S. vice president for sales and service. “And our continued growth last month marks our best May since 2007.”
Earlier this spring, Cadillac was also rated highest in customer satisfaction with dealer service among luxury brands by J.D. Power and named a J.D. Power 2014 Customer Champion.
Cadillac has been a leading luxury auto brand since 1902. Today Cadillac is growing globally, driven by an expanding product portfolio featuring dramatic design and technology.

Over on CadillacCountryClub.com
This week on Caddyinfo.com weekly Cadillac Chat they talk about a 2013 Cadillac CTS wagon with a salvaged title that was a test car for GM. The question is would you buy this car with a $10,000 discount and not worry about the warranty.
I was going to be on with them but I had company over at the last minute. Maybe next week!
Thanks to Bruce and the gang over at Caddyinfo.com for letting me share this.
Thought I would put up some pictures from the NY auto show since I have been editing some lately. This is the Cadillac Elmiraj which looked pretty hot to me.
I hope Cadillac decides to build this car or something like it. Cadillac needs a flagship car and this could easily be it.
