Let’s start with the best, obviously. The new ‘vette is hands-down the most exciting thing to come out of Detroit since God knows when. Redesigns include a new interior, lighter weight, and a 455-hp engine that can go from running on eight to four cylinders at the touch of a button.
Caddy’s quality revolution continues unabated with this sleek re-do of an already excellent automobile. With tighter lines and a lower profile, the 2014 CTS has more of an attitude than its predecessor. And, with 20-way power seats and highly tunable climate controls, the CTS doesn’t skimp on the luxury touches that have traditionally set the brand apart.
For all we know, this might be a great vehicle under the hood. But we just can’t get past the bizarre restyling of the front grille. Combined with the “smiley face” outline on the front bumper, the 2014 Cherokee looks like a stoned catfish swimming its way down the highway. If I ever catch anything that looks like that, then I’m throwing it back.
