4 Benefits of the Automatic Transmission in Your Cadillac

We are a full-service automotive shop that specializes in Cadillac and Corvette, and we make sure our Caddie customers can always enjoy the following four benefits of an automatic transmission.

1. Driving Ease

Most people prefer driving a Cadillac with an automatic transmission because it makes driving easier. The automatic transmission shifts the gears for you whether you’re speeding up or slowing down. You can control the gear shifts with the accelerator when you need to, such as when you need to downshift to pick up speed, but for the most part, all you need to do is put your Caddie in Drive and off you go.

2. Faster Acceleration

When you drive a manual transmission, you have a lot to do once the light turns green or it’s your turn to go at a stop sign. It is this movement, this gear-shifting that slows manual automobiles down when it comes to accelerating. Automatic transmissions start from a dead stop quicker and they pick up speed more quickly, as well, giving them an edge when it comes to higher performance when accelerating.

3. More Powerful

Cadillac automobiles are big and beautiful and they need a lot of power. Automatic transmissions are more powerful than manual transmissions are, which is why so many Cadillac vehicles come with automatic transmissions. It isn’t just a luxury thing. Cadillac automatic transmissions give you greater power because the automatic transmissions are designed to spread the torque load better.

4. Which Multiplies the Torque

Nearly all automatic transmission units have a torque converter that transfers engine power to give you better engine performance. You get quicker and more powerful acceleration when you step on the gas, and you also get better power spread while your automatic transmission shifts gears. You might not know this, but many drag racers have automatic transmissions for this torque conversion and power. The drivers are not shifting the racers themselves.
