Last year, Cadillac only sold 3,000 vehicles across all of Europe and latest forecasts see the brand just 6,000 to 7,000 vehicles in 2010. A spokesman for Cadillac admitted that several new models will be introduced including the new CTS sedan, plus two variations of the car by 2009. These will be a new Sportwagon and Coupe model, with the latter priced close to €65,000. Both cars will come with General Motors’ upcoming direct injection V6 engines as well as an optional V8 and high-performance supercharged V8 powerplants. A turbo-diesel model will also be offered.
The successor to the slow-selling BLS sedan is due by 2010 and will by styled more aggressively and sportier than the current version. The new engine range will include a 2.8 or 3.6L V6 engines as well as a 3.0L diesel engine sourced from Opel. A wagon version is also expected.
