LOGAN, UTAH — The National Science Foundation has awarded Utah State University a five-year, $26 million grant, renewable to 10-year, $50.6 million, to develop an international research center dedicated to advancing sustainable, electrified transportation. The center is expected to raise more than $200 million over the next decade in government and industry support.

The grant establishes an Engineering Research Center focused on developing new infrastructure that facilitates widespread adoption of electric vehicles. The center is named ASPIRE — Advancing Sustainability through Powered Infrastructure for Roadway Electrification.

“ASPIRE represents the very best of what a research university brings to the state and community,” said USU President Noelle E. Cockett. “The center will provide unprecedented opportunities for students and further Utah State’s ability to cultivate a

Car review: World-class engineering makes 2020 Cadillac CT4-V grin-inducing fun – News –

For Cadillac, their attempts at reclaiming their status as “The Standard of the World” remains a work in progress.

And while the Escalade may define the essence of Cadillac for modern consumers, its spirit isn’t always apparent in the rest of the lineup. After all, the Escalade’s unsurpassed swagger, size, style, power and comfort make it a modern-day Fleetwood Brougham, albeit one with all-wheel drive, 22-inch wheels and nine inches of ground clearance. Yet these same virtues seem absent in Cadillac’s other offerings.

That said, the new 2020 CT4-V makes a compelling argument that many of the qualities that make for a great automobile are present.

The CT4 is built on Cadillac’s rear-wheel-drive sedan platform and is offered in Luxury, Premium Luxury, Sport and V-Series trim. All-wheel drive is optional. Most CT4s are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 237 horsepower and matched to an eight-speed automatic
