Things described as the "Cadillac of ______" once denoted the finest version of that particular ______. If you were buying a luxury car in this country decades ago, chances were that you yearned for a car with the classic wreath and crest logo. However, for many reasons, thing have changed, and America's crown luxury car jewel is no longer quite as bright and shiny in the eyes of car buyers, who more often than not choose a German brand. But, should you consider a Cadillac today? The short answer is: yes! Let's take a look at some of the brand's highlights.

2017 Cadillac CT6

CT6

This is the newest, most advanced and ultimately most impressive new Cadillac on the market. It's a large sedan, and if there's anything Cadillac should do well, it's a large sedan. However, unlike the grand land yachts of old, the CT6 is a testament to state-of-the-art engineering. It all starts with a lightweight platform and body, which help it utilize smaller and therefore more efficient engines. It also does wonders for its handling, which stands out in a crowd that tends to err on the side of soft and stately. Inside, you get an eye-catching design that won't be confused for anything from Germany -- it's proudly American and befitting a modern Cadillac. Actually, that's a pretty good way to sum up the CT6 in general.

2017 Cadillac XT5

XT5

No luxury segment is hotter than the compact crossover one, and the XT5 is Cadillac's entry. It's also one of the brand's newest models, introduced for 2017. For starters, it's a far superior vehicle to the SRX it replaces, which is saying something, since that was Cadillac's best-seller. Like the CT6, it shed some weight, while also being more spacious, luxurious and modern inside than its predecessor. Electronics are a strong suit, much like the rest of Cadillac and GM in general. Its much-improved CUE tech interface features standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, on-board Wi-Fi and a customized menu layout. If there is one car that represents the modern Cadillac, it's probably this.

2017 Cadillac CTS

CTS

The CTS has been on a sale for a while now, and given its similar size, you may struggle to tell it apart from the newer and pricier CT6. However, the overshadowed CTS has an awful lot going for it. For starters, it looks great, and its handling is exceptional, driving with a poise and responsiveness that betters most competitors. This is especially true of the CTS-V high-performance version, which also boasts a rip-roaring 640-horsepower supercharged V8 and a price tag that hugely undercuts its German rivals. This would be Cadillac's dark horse candidate and is definitely worth a look.

Autotrader Says

Cadillac is still very much an evolving brand, as the future will see a more diverse selection of cars and SUVs. For now, however, it has the performance, driving experience and tech features to stand toe-to-toe with the world's finest.
