    Segment Transcript

    I’m Laura Reynolds with CarProUSA.com. Marketing Manager Cadillac Sedans Meagan Quinn talks about the Cadillac CT4. Quinn: "Everybody wants to talk about the exterior styling because the exterior styling is really expressive.  It surprises people when they discover that it's a Cadillac.  So, for a lot of people it's their entry point into luxury. But for other people, it's they've been driving sedans and they really want something this size and this shape and the rear-wheel drive architecture with the all-wheel drive option is really appealing to people specifically in cold weather climate. We have the drive modes, the snow and ice drive mode and a lot of safety features that just make you feel really connected to the road. Your initial impressions of it are definitely the expressive design when you see it. It's a really great looking car, all of the materials in the car are lightweight but also very good quality materials. " Starting MSRP  is $33,395.

    Ford Police Vehicle Brand manager Greg Ebel talks about the test results of America's only pursuit-rated pickup the 2021 Ford F-150 Police Responder. Ebel:  "The all-new 2021 F-150 Police Responder is the fastest police vehicle in terms of the acceleration from zero to 60,  0 to 100 and a quarter mile testing and it really is amazing this is pickup truck right, you know compared to a police SUVs and some V8-powered sedans you know for some of the competition. So it really is a true testament that what we said as we revealed we had a top speed of 120-mph with Michigan State Police testing and a lot this is because we have a new torque on demand  4X4 transfer case, so it allowed us to get the torque to all for wheels, right, and also the improvements to the 3.5 liter V6 EcoBoost engine, 400-horsepower, 500 lb.-ft. of torque, what it does is it provides with a faster vehicle,  it's safer, its going to handle better."
