Cadillac today announced the exclusive 2018 Cadillac CTS-V Glacier Metallic Edition, painted a smoky light gray that celebrates Cadillac’s 115-year history. The Edition will be limited to 115 CTS-V super sedans produced in 2017 for model year 2018.
Accenting the anniversary color are standard illuminated door handles, dark red Brembo® brake calipers and 19-inch forged polish-finished alloy wheels with Midnight Silver painted pockets, creating a unique look for Cadillac’s ultimate driver’s car.
The interior features Jet Black RECARO® race-inspired sport seats, the Performance Data Recorder system featuring COSWORTH Toolbox analysis software, UltraView sunroof, the industry–first Rear Camera Mirror and the next-generation Cadillac user experience infotainment system.
“The Apple Watch integration is another example of the seamless integration of technology Apple aficionados have come to expect from the Cadillac brand,” said John McFarland, director of Global Digital Experience. For drivers, Apple CarPlay3 compatibility is standard on the full Cadillac lineup, offering quick access to phone contacts, messages, music and navigation. Wireless phone charging is also available on the full Cadillac lineup.
Passengers in the Escalade and CT6 can stream their favorite shows from devices such as Apple TV to the rear infotainment screens using the HDMI port and the vehicle’s built-in Wi-Fi connection.4 All Cadillac owners with an in-vehicle OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and active OnStar subscription have access to an Unlimited Data plan for $20 per month.5
Usage of the myCadillac app has increased nearly 50 percent in 2017. The mobile app became available in 2010, providing Cadillac owners unprecedented connectivity to their vehicles. Today it is available on every Cadillac vehicle model-year 2011 and newer. The myCadillac app will seamlessly integrate with Apple Watch running WatchOS 3.
Cadillac has teamed up with BLADE, the first digitally powered short distance aviation company that provides quick flights to the most in-demand destinations, to launch the “Cadillac Fly and Drive” program. From July 7, 2017 to August 25, 2017, summer Friday commutes from Manhattan to the Hamptons will be more convenient and enjoyable (courtesy of Cadillac) for the eight New Yorkers who are lucky enough to reserve a seat on the helicopter each week.
The “Cadillac Fly and Drive” complimentary flight will post at random each week. Users will need to stay tuned on the BLADE app, refreshing often, for a chance to secure a seat on the crowdsourced flight. Flights will depart on Friday evenings from one of two BLADE Lounges located at the East 34th Heliport or the West 30th Street Heliport. Upon arrival to East Hampton, the first six flyers to book will also have the chance to enjoy a complimentary Cadillac XT5 to use for the weekend.
“Cadillac prides itself on collaborating with like-minded brands to curate unique and memorable experiences,” says Nathan Tan, director of Brand Partnerships and Experiences at Global Cadillac. “Our partnership with BLADE reflects how our two brands are working together to evolve how customers travel.”
