The weekend before Thanksgiving, Hardworking Hubby, Tatertot, Bean and I made our way to Chicago in the wee hours (3:30am) of the morning. Our destination: The Chicago Toy & Game Fair at Navy Pier. On this trip, we were fortunate to ride in comfort thanks to the good folks at GM for lending us a beautiful 2013 Cadillac XTS!
Now, I never pictured myself in a Cadillac, ever! In fact, I may or may not have made fun of friends and family members over the years and stating something about Cadillac’s being old people cars.
Now here is the part where I admit I was wrong.
Yes, I was wrong.
This car was amazing!
And the technology, oh the technology….it made me drool!
The Cadillac XTS offers the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) with navigation, and audio system that will blow your mind complete with Bose Studio Surround Sound and 14 speakers, SiriusXM & HD Radio, and everything was operated by a button or the swipe of a hand.
It also had more safety features than any vehicle I had ever been in. The drivers seat would vibrate and let you know if someone was following to closely, the side mirrors lit up if someone was in your blind spot, back up cameras to ensure nothing was in your way, airbags galore and sooooo much more!
One thing I definitely cannot leave out is the space in this car. You would think once you packed to grown (large) adults in the car, an infant carrier and base, a booster seat, diaper bag and snacks that we would be low on space but we weren’t. We were also able to take advantage of the huge trunk as well. On the ride to Chicago it was home to our suitcase and stroller. On the way back we added some items from our trip to IKEA and a new convertible carseat we had been trying to find locally for Bean, plus all of our additional items from the Chicago Toy & Game Fair.
Color me impressed!
Driving this car made me feel safe and comfortable. Having to get up and drive for 4 hours with 2 kids in the middle of the night is never an enjoyable experience however the Cadillac made it easy on us! Bean slept on the entire ride there and back and Tatertot got his fair share of sleep as well!
Disclosure: GM provided us with a vehicle to use for our trip to Chicago and I was not compensated our required to write this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. GM is just awesome and is doing whatever they can to make a difference!
In 8 hours, Zman, Bean and I will be departing Green Bay and making our way to Chicago for the Verizon Wireless Midwest Savvy Moms kickoff event followed by the Brands & Bloggers Summit on Saturday.
Although we will be leaving in the wee hours of the morning to assure that we will arrive on time, one thing that we do know is that we will be riding in style!
Yes, that is our mode of transportation for the next week and I can tell you this, I am in love! If I ever win the lottery I can promise you that this will be the car I am driving after!
The Yukon XL is a smooth ride that offers so much comfort for everyone!
Front heat bucket leather seats, air conditioning, adjustable pedals, heated second row seats, dual tv screens, DVD technology, navigation, back up cameras….the list goes on and on and on and on.
I am loving it and cannot wait to hop into it in the morning and make our way to Chicago!
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
Disclaimer: GM was kind to lend us a vehicle to travel to Chicago and home, however they do NOT expect or require me to write this post. All thoughts and opinions about the 2012 GMC Yukon are my own and seriously, if I win the lottery, I am soooo buying one!
