Electric Luxury & High Performance

The ultimate goal of Cadillac president Steve Carlisle is to produce electric luxury vehicles with a driving range of 400 miles and a charging time of just a few minutes. He also indicated that more models may be available with the advanced Super Cruise™ driver assistance system.

Prepare Your Chevrolet Vehicle for Winter

2020 Silverado 2500HD Near Beloit, WI

Winter can be harsh in Wisconsin and make daily driving more challenging. Prepare your Chevrolet vehicle for the cold weather ahead by following these tips.

Get an oil change

Staying on top of routine vehicle maintenance is important at all times of the year. That’s why you should schedule oil changes regularly to best protect your vehicle’s engine.

Inspect your lights

Headlights can give you the visibility necessary for driving at night or during snowstorms. Be sure to inspect your headlights as well as your fog lights and taillights before driving, and replace any bulbs that are burnt out.

Consider winter tires

You should take your vehicle in to the service department for regular tire rotations throughout the year.  In the winter, you can also opt for winter tires to have better traction on snowy roads.

Replace your wiper blades

If your wiper blades are leaving streaks or not functioning properly, replace them before the first snowstorm hits so that you can have better visibility.

Pack an emergency kit

You should keep an emergency kit in your vehicle in case you ever get stranded on the side of the road. Be sure to pack extra layers of clothing, water, a cellphone charger, jumper cables, snacks, flares and a flashlight.

We at Bud Weiser Motors encourage you to take your Chevrolet vehicle to our service department for replacements and routine maintenance before the winter season begins.

Cadillac Super Cruise™ Technology.

Cadillac consistently pioneers cutting-edge technology for its vehicles. One of its latest and greatest innovations is Super Cruise™, a revolutionary system that does the driving for you. Here’s a look into how Super Cruise™ technology works.

Super Cruise™ merges the functions of different devices to create an integrated hands-free driving experience. It relies on radar sensors, cameras and GPS to digitally map and predict the road ahead. Then, when you activate Super Cruise™, it utilizes Adaptive Cruise Control to control your braking and acceleration, allowing the vehicle to keep moving forward without colliding with other vehicles.

Your Cadillac will even stay centered in its lane and maintain a safe distance from other vehicles, all without your hands needing to guide the wheel. Accordingly, the technology makes for more relaxing and convenient rides.

Cadillac customers have been using the autonomous system for almost two years now, covering more than 3 million miles of compatible highway. Super Cruise™ is such a breakthrough in self-driving technology that Autoblog named it the 2019 Technology of the Year and Popular Science proclaimed it the 2018 Best of What’s New winner.

If you want to take the hassle out of highway driving and make your commutes easier, you can drive the 2019 or 2020 Cadillac CT6 and opt for Super Cruise™.  Learn more about the vehicles and their technology at Bud Weiser Motors.

New 2020 Cadillac XT6 Spot Created by Russo Brothers.

2020 Cadillac XT6

Cadillac recently teamed up with the famous film directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, to create a new 2020 Cadillac XT6 spot for the brand’s new campaign. The Russo brothers are best known for making huge blockbuster superhero movies, like “Avengers: Endgame,” so having them work on the Cadillac ad is exciting.

According to Cadillac, the “Crew Ready” campaign will also feature Diplo’s song, “Welcome to the Party.” The campaign wants to show the new Cadillac XT6 as sleek, versatile and unique, which is why the spots have an edgy overall feel and show that the XT6 is more than just a traditional SUV. With the campaign’s list of XT6 drivers including stuntwomen and even rocker dads, it makes sense that the Russo brothers were chosen to direct a spot.

Deborah Wahl, chief marketing officer of Cadillac said, “XT6 customers are always ready for an adventure, and we knew closely partnering with the directors of the highest ever grossing film, the Russo brothers, and Bullitt was the perfect way to bring this vision to life.”

We at Bud Weiser Motors think the new “Crew Ready” campaign is an entertaining way to showcase the new 2020 Cadillac XT6. Stop by our dealership for a test drive in one of our many other Cadillac vehicles.
