A lot can happen between now and when the new Cadillac XT3 crossover is shown to the public. It’s a pretty safe bet that it will be well equipped with the latest available technology and be powered by an efficient (also turbocharged) engine. Like its Trax and Encore cousins, the Cadillac XT3 will be wonderfully adapted to urban driving while still maintaining an excellent level of utility.
Other Cadillac news
In a previous Don Wheaton Blog, we described how the new Cadillac vehicle naming conventions will work. Basically, new sedans (and possibly coupes) will have the designation CT with an even number and crossovers will be labeled XT with an odd number. As the numbers get higher, the vehicles have higher levels of performance and more advanced or refined features.

Most romantic Chevy vehicle
With the most romantic day of the year upon us, many of the members of the Don Wheaton Blog staff got to wondering, what is the most romantic Chevy vehicle available. This is going to be one of those existential blogs where the criteria to make the list is pretty subjective, or at the very best, fluid. Our consensus came to the realization that the only metric that matters is how does each vehicle accomplish a particular Valentine’s Day goal. Chevrolet has really done an excellent job producing concept vehicles or accessory packages to give owners something pretty special.
Best Chevy model in which to get noticed
If you and your partner are looking to make a statement, the best Chevy vehicle to leave a lasting impression on those around you is the Chevy Camaro Redline Edition. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait for next Valentine’s Day to get behind the wheel of this vehicle. But the smooth gray paint scheme offset by red and black accents will certainly draw attention as you arrive at your favorite romantic restaurant.
Runner-up: Silverado Redline
The Chevy Silverado Redline was a close second and its vote was severely contested. Few other trucks will be able to also serve as a near-luxury chariot, but the Silverado Redline fits the bill.
Most subtle Chevy vehicle with the most impact
Are you the type of person that likes to fly under the radar, but still want people to notice your arrival? The Chevy Silverado Blackout Edition is the vehicle for you. The gloss black exterior and several blacked out elements like the grille and bowties may not turn all the heads, but the people that notice your arrival will definitely appreciate it.
Runner-up: Silverado Special Ops Edition
We really think this version of the Silverado exudes a certain quiet professionalism. Take a look for yourself.

2017 Bolt EV battery charging
