The 2020 Cadillac XT5 carves out a unique niche for itself among smaller compact luxury SUVs and larger mid-size luxury models. Compared to most of its compact rivals, the XT5 delivers more room for occupants and better cargo capacity. Pitted against many class rivals, the XT5 is noticeably less expensive and doesn’t require a diet of premium gasoline.

The XT5 Sport is meant to inject some excitement into this otherwise sensible, if not exactly exhilarating, Cadillac SUV. This new trim comes with a quicker steering ratio, 20-inch alloy wheels, retuned suspension settings, and the XT5’s optional 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. While the XT5 is available in front- and all-wheel-drive formats, the XT5 Sport comes with AWD as standard.

I always say, “Golf is only boring if you make it boring.”

Golf is a sport that is quite special. It is one of the few sports that anyone at any age can play, there are very few rules that a causal player has to follow and the odds are someone you know plays or has played.

When I was in high school, my friends would make fun of me for playing golf, but then I finally convinced them to actually go to the course with me, and they fell in love with it. We began going out every Saturday to play 18 holes. As a bored teenager, golf

After a 31-year run, from 1965 to 1996, Ford put its Bronco SUV on ice.

We will never know if that infamous OJ Simpson white Bronco chase on June 17, 1994, that riveted the nation on national TV, ever had anything to do with that decision.

But, in this age of conspiracy theories, we can only speculate.
