Lol, a C300......that car starts at $38k.

2012 C350 has 302hp and would without an issue beat an Escalade to 60.

Aside from being an Apples vs. Oranges comparison, the C350 bases around $41k...an Escalade base is $63k.

C300...you got to be kidding me. V6 making 228hp? Why not the C63 AMG?

That is the most fucked up comparison ever and leave it to Gov't Motors to do an apples to oranges comparison....and be proud of it.

Why did the not run the Escalade piece of shit against a GL550 with a 382hp V8?

Only his left side ever does anything. I wouldn't go so far as to say it "works" though.

eh... C300?

What about the C350 or C63?

Indeed.

But then, consider the target market for Cadillac and it's not a bad commercial.
Link Posted: 9/30/2011 5:52:39 AM EST
Next up: Cadillac CTS-V vs. '78 Ford Fairmount wagon, like the one Paul Newman drove in "Absence of Malice."

"Today, Cadillac goes up against a car once driven by a famous race car driving champion - Paul Newman. Let's watch!"

Sorry, 80% of the target market understands the point of the commercial was the MB was used as a benchmark to show the acceleration of the Caddy and all done in good dry humor.

Although, 80% of the target market probably does not care about the acceleration of a full size SUV. Here in Texas it is a very popular vehicle for business.

I would hate to suggest anything illegal......




When I renewed my registration last week, there was a large mouth woman pissin' about having her FARM TRUCK plates on her new Escalade confiscated and written a couple of tickets by the DPS.


Seems a trooper saw the vehicle at the beauty salon, and just could not convince himself that was a legitimate farm related operation!

And apparently the other 20% think comparing a full sized SUV to a sports coup is a more fair comparison. A better comparison would be the GL class I would think.

I think the point is that the Escalade gets up for a big fucker.

But it is still slow. A geezer tried to race me in his Escalade, I was in a Mustang GT. He got spanked and I dont road race, I kicked his ass and never went over 3,500 RPMs in any gear.

In the video you can see neither vehicle is going anywhere fast.

Even worse, it will reinforce the dumbass' idea that large, broad-faced trucks and suvs should be sup'd up to be drag-racers.
Link Posted: 10/2/2011 2:37:03 PM EST
228hp 3560 power to weight ratio: 15.61

403hhp 5700 power to weight ratio: 14.14

closer comparison would be if the MB had ~250-260hp

C63 AMG would be a much more fair comparison, both price and displacement wise.

Besides a few pieces of sheet metal, maybe the block and the Chevy trail blazer badge, what parts from a stock Trail blazer are still on the 8 second trail blazer?

After a few years a caddy is just another piece of GM trash.

Benzes tend to still feel like benzes 10, 20, 30 years down the road.

I don't give a crap which one clicks through a 1/4 faster. Both are relatively quick.
