While Cadillac is ready to challenge all rivals in the luxury automobile segment, Mercedes-Benz seems to be a great target. No wonder, Caddy took care of providing a video showing than it can easily beat one of the German automaker's products. The battleground is a segment of asphalt with a starting line, hit-the-gas-now light tree, and a finish line. The battle between Germany automotive action and America isn't really fair though, because of Cadillac. While General Motor's luxury arm chose Mercedes-Benz C300 as the acceptive target, the American automaker chose to stick with the Escalade.
Seems like vehicles of different sizes and shapes are lining up in head-to-head motorsports fight, though it doesn't appear to be fair. The German side features Mercedes-Benz C300, an entry-level luxury sedan carrying not a representative 228-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 engine (while the most powerful 'regular' C-Class engine is noticed in the 302-hp C350). The American side in its turn boasts a much more expensive luxury SUV equipped with the 6.2-liter 403-horsepower V8 unit.
