Cadillac vs. Volvo at Kelley Automotive
Volvo vs. Cadillac
Volvo and Cadillac are two fantastic luxury brands with powerful, safe, and innovative models across their respective lineups. We offer both Volvo and Cadillac vehicles here at Tom Kelley. These are some of their differences, and what makes them both high-value brands.
The Volvo Lineup
The current Volvo lineup includes SUVs, sedans, crossovers, and wagons. The Volvo SUV lineup includes the Volvo XC90, the Volvo XC60, and the Volvo XC40. The Volvo sedan lineup includes the Volvo S90 and the Volvo S60. Finally, the Volvo crossover and wagon lineup includes the Volvo V90 Cross Country and the Volvo V60.
The Cadillac Lineup
The current Cadillac lineup includes crossovers and SUVs, sedans, a coupe, its famous V-Series models, and a plug-in hybrid. The Cadillac crossover and SUV lineup includes the Cadillac XT4, the Cadillac XT5, the Cadillac Escalade, and the Cadillac Escalade ESV. The Cadillac sedan lineup includes the Cadillac CTS, the Cadillac XTS, and the Cadillac CT6. The Cadillac coupe model is the Cadillac ATS. The Cadillac V-Series includes the Cadillac ATS-V and the Cadillac CTS-V. The Cadillac plug-in hybrid model is the Cadillac CT6 Plug-In.
Differences in the Brands
While both models are revered for their advanced safety features and performance, Volvo is known industry-wide as a leader in safety technology. The automaker is often the first to install the most important new safety features in its models. In fact, Volvo promises no major injuries or deaths for passengers in its new vehicles by 2020. Volvo vehicles also prioritize fuel economy more than Cadillac models do, as its innovative Drive-E engines are efficient and adaptable.
On the other hand, Cadillac — especially with its V-Series lineup — puts an emphasis on performance. The Cadillac’s CTS-V produces 640 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque, rockets from 0 to 60 in just 3.7 seconds, and hits a top track speed of 200 miles per hour. Cadillac also has a long American heritage that has forever cemented its presence in the U.S. market. It’s constantly improving its image to vehicle designs to match what’s considered trendy and attractive. Cadillac offers its customers a benefits program that includes My Cadillac Rewards, maintenance reminders, roadside assistance, and the MyCadillac App.
Both Volvo and Cadillac are global brands. Volvo, however, is headquartered in Sweden and was founded in 1927. Cadillac is an American brand, based originally out of Detroit but now New York; it was founded in 1902.
