A few days ago we had it in our reports that Cadillac is considering a coupe version of the new CTS. Well, they’ve considered it, and apparently they are not going to make it. Along with the coupe, the wagon version too will get the axe when the new model goes into production at Lansing plant in Michigan.
Sources close to Cadillac have confirmed that the current generation Cadillac CTS Coupe and Wagon will solider on for another year or so along with the new-gen sedan. Then they will both be dropped. The wagon will be gone for good, as the marketing department cannot make sense of it anymore, and as for the coupe, well that job will be given to the ATS. The smaller, sportier ATS is a better base for a coupe.
The CTS Wagon has always been a slow seller and its main purpose was to give Cadillac the image of a full-on automaker with a rich lineup. Caddy has sold around 3,500 units of CTS Wagon so far, one third of which were high-performance V-Series models.
By ditching the Wagon and the Coupe, the CTS will focus on becoming a better sedan in its quest to beat the German rivals.
