Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2013 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Yosemite National Park occupies 747,956 acres in east central California. It is home to natural wonders like imposing El Capitan, the world’s largest exposed granite mononlith; towering sequoia trees, some of which are thought to be thousands of years old; and breathtaking waterfalls fed by snowmelt. President Abraham Lincoln signed a bill in 1864 that granted the Yosemite Valley to the State of California as a natural preserve, an event seen as a precursor to the national parks movement. Noted naturalist John Muir was instrumental in Yosemite becoming established as a national park on October 1, 1890.

2019 Cadillac XT4

2019 Cadillac XT4

Consumer Guide Automotive

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of Cadillac’s newly introduced compact crossover is that … it took so long to get here.

For a market that is essentially 15 years old, has long contained more than a dozen entries, and is growing in popularity at an incredibly rapid rate, Cadillac seems kind of late to the party. But they’ve finally arrived for 2019 bearing a pretty darn nice gift: the impressive new XT4.

Cadillac V8-6-4, What Was The Cadillac V8-6-4?

Cadillac V8-6-4 (L62) engine

What was the Cadillac V8-6-4? A glib response to this question might be, “a joke,” “a mistake,” or “ a mechanic’s nightmare.” And while the Caddy-exclusive engine was inarguably fraught with glitches, a more circumspect reply might be, “a flawed technological marvel that was about a decade ahead of its time.”

Trashed Cadillac Deville

We suspect this Coupe DeVille has fallen into the hands of an ungrateful heir.

Some time ago, I wrote a piece about the unlikely vehicles I still see on a regular basis. You can check out that list here. One car I neglected to make note of at the time was the Cadillac DeVille–specifically front-wheel-drive-era DeVilles.

2002 Cadillac Eldorado ETC

As fate would have it, the 2002 Eldorado would not be the last Cadillac coupe—a couple of subsequent 2-door models would relieve it of that historic burden—but by most accounts it would be the last “old-school” Caddy.

2006 Cadillac STS

2006 Cadillac STS

Maybe you’ve heard of the “runner’s high,” an elusive phenomenon experienced by distance runners and other serious exercise buffs. At some point during a good, long run, an endurance-focused athlete can experience a period of euphoria that, to hear some folks tell it, makes the whole physical-exertion thing more than worth the effort.

1976 Ford Thunderbird, Most-Expensive Coupes of 1976

1976 Ford Thunderbird

There is no longer space in the American new-car marketplace for vehicles with hoods and trunklids that consume more linear space than their passenger compartments do. While I know that the passing of the giant coupe was inevitable, I also lament that automotive designers no longer have a free hand with such large and expressive canvases.
