Satisfying Your Need for Speed: BMW vs Cadillac

As two longtime luxury titans, both BMW and Cadillac have worked hard to craft a diverse lineup catering to every taste. As part of this effort, each brand has tried to add sportier and faster models into their respective families.

These days, Cadillac provides sportier options in the form of their V trim levels, available for both the CT4 and the CT5. If we take the CT5-V, for instance, we have a sport-tuned sedan with a 3.0L V6 engine, capable of churning up 360 horsepower (HP).

Fun as the Cadillac V trims may be, they can barely keep up with the M Series models offered by BMW.

Looking at a sedan of similar size to the CT5—the BMW 5 Series—drivers can select the M550i xDrive trim level. Outfitted with a massive V8 engine, this BMW sedan yields up to 523 HP, far outpacing its competitor.

Forward-Thinking: Electric Options

The automotive industry seems to be trending in the direction of even more electric options. How are these brands keeping up?

BMW has its gaze set to the future with numerous plug-in electric options. It offers two all-electric models, the i3 and the i8, as well as electric trim levels for some of its most popular models, such as the X3 xDrive 30e SAV (Sports Activity Vehicle®).

Cadillac is lagging quite a bit in this respect, though. While they do have plans for the new electric Lyriq SUV in the upcoming years, they don’t have any dedicated electric trims or vehicles in their current lineup.

Smart Interior Technologies

Beyond performance, technology can be a huge boon for any brand. Let’s take a closer look at the infotainment options for BMW and Cadillac.

BMW 5 Series Technology Features

With Cadillac, drivers can make good use of the Cadillac User Experience. With optional navigation features, this array can connect to your smartphone to make streaming your favorite media and accessing GPS easy.

These same features are offered in the BMW brand as well, but it incorporates AI (artificial intelligence) into its array. The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant recognizes your voice and common phrases. Ask it for directions or to turn on the AC and it will take care of things for you.
