Cadillac Celebrates 120 Years of Design and Engineering Innovation

2023 Cadillac Lineup | Beloit, WI

Since the brand’s inception 120 years ago, Cadillac has been synonymous with style, innovation, and luxury. Here’s how this legendary automaker is celebrating this landmark anniversary.

A legacy of innovation.

Cadillac made a splash by being the first brand to introduce a mass-produced V8 engine, bringing the thrill of high-performance driving to motorists across the country. The brand also made waves with its Cadillac V16, which lived up to its name by being the first-ever V16-powered production passenger car. As the years went by, Cadillac blazed new trails with technological feats like the HydraMatic fully automatic transmission and the recent introduction of Super Cruise hands-free driving technology.

The models that define Cadillac.

To commemorate the brand’s 120th anniversary, Cadillac executives Michael Simcoe and Bryan Nesbitt put the spotlight on 12 of the nameplate’s landmark vehicles. These legendary models include the 1927 LaSalle, designed by industry leader Harley Earl, along with the classic 1959 Eldorado. In the modern era, the execs highlighted the CTS-V Coupe and Wagon, as well as the stunning CELESTIQ EV.

Over the past twelve decades, it’s evident that Cadillac has led the way with trend-setting designs and industry milestones. If you’re interested in a cutting-edge model with top-of-the-line luxury, check out our inventory at Bud Weiser Motors in Beloit, Wisconsin.

Cadillac Reveals CELESTIQ Show Car

Cadillac recently revealed the stunning new CELESTIQ show car. This innovative model gives drivers a glimpse into the brand’s all-electric future — the future has never looked brighter.

Although the CELESTIQ is still in development, it already demonstrates the purest expression of Cadillac. Its design draws inspiration from vanguards of classic American architecture, including Eero Saarinen, the mind behind the iconic St. Louis Arch, the TWA Flight Center at the JFK Airport, and Washington Dulles International Airport.

Laetitia Lopez, a creative designer for Cadillac Color and Trim, explained that the CELESTIQ embodies both form and function. “We had to reconsider all aspects to immerse the customer, all of their senses, and create a connection with the vehicle through the finest genuine materials, exceptional detailing, and advanced technology,” she stated in a press release.

Some of the most exciting aspects of this model include its industry-first features. The variable-transmission Smart Glass Roof lets you fine-tune the amount of light let into the cabin. Plus, it features Ultra Cruise, the next step in the evolution of the Super Cruisehands-free driving technology found on other Cadillac models.

How To Maintain Your Luxury Cadillac in Beloit, WI.

2021 Cadillac Escalade | Beloit, WI

From thrilling cars to sophisticated SUVs, the Cadillac lineup has something for everyone, and it’s no wonder that many Cadillac models are considered dream cars. If you’ve purchased one of these envy-inducing models, it’s important to take the time to properly maintain it, or your dream car may develop some nightmarish problems. Here are some key ways to maintain your luxury Cadillac.   

Keep up with service.

You need to follow the maintenance schedule outlined in your owner’s manual. This is one of the easiest ways to make sure your Cadillac is up to date on service and keeps functioning properly.

Clean the seats.

If you have premium leather seats, it’s worth the effort it takes to clean them twice a week and keep them looking like new. Vacuum them thoroughly, using the suction hose for different crevices, and then wipe them down with a leather cleaner and microfiber cloth.

Inspect the tires.

While filling up at the gas station or charging the battery, take a look at your tires. Ensure they have enough air pressure and that they don’t have any cuts or bulges. This can help prevent a future blowout.

If your Cadillac is ready for service, schedule an appointment at Bud Weiser Motors in Beloit, Wisconsin, and our technicians will gladly assist you.
