Updates and Changes to a Few 2018 Cadillac Models

2018 is a great year for Cadillac, which will see refreshes and tech updates for a few of its models, as well as whispers of new models and trims set to be released next year. The Cadillac XTS and ATS are just two of the Cadillac cars that will offer new styling and features for the 2018 model year.

2018 Cadillac XTS

The XTS is getting a big refresh for 2018. The brand’s full-size sedan will feature tweaks to its front and rear styling, making it fit in better with the rest of the Cadillac lineup and giving it a sleeker, more modern look.

2018 Cadillac ATS

The ATS, Cadillac’s compact car offering, is another model receiving some styling updates. It adds a new color, Satin Steel Mechanic, a deep gray that gives the ATS extra sophistication, as well as other minor interior and exterior changes. The ATS also now comes with an available heated steering wheel.

Next-Generation CUE System

Both the XTS and the ATS will get the latest version of Cadillac CUE, which not only features faster speed and a redesigned interface, but also cloud support that lets you transfer your data from Cadillac to Cadillac, adjusting to your preferences and needs.

These are just a few of the exciting updates and changes you’ll find in the lineup of 2018 Cadillac models. For more information, give us a call today at Trent Cadillac.

Packing Your Cadillac ATS for a Spring Road Trip

Spring Road Trip - ATS - Trent Cadillac BlogHeading out on a road trip is a great way to spend the upcoming summer months, but do you know what to pack? Luggage is an obvious given, and the spacious trunk of the Cadillac ATS has plenty of room. So, what else should you pack for your trip? We here at Trent Cadillac have a few suggestions regarding what you need to pack in your Cadillac ATS for a spring road trip.

  • First Aid Kit – A fully-stocked first aid kit is essential for all drivers, no matter how long the road trip is. You never know when an injury could happen, but it’s always best to be prepared, just in case. Keep a supply of gauze, bandages, and other pertinent medical supplies stowed away in your Cadillac ATS. It’s better to be safe than sorry, after all.
  • Cooler – The spacious back seat is perfect for drivers who want something to drink or eat without stopping. Pack a cooler to ensure that hunger and thirst aren’t cause for fatigue on the road. Any medicine that needs to be kept cool will normally be just fine in a cooler as well.
  • Garbage Bag – No matter how long the trip, garbage is bound to accumulate in your Cadillac ATS. Get ahead of the game by packing a garbage bag and keeping it handy every time you stop for something to eat or drink. Throwing garbage away as you get it will make cleaning up after the road trip a must quicker process.
