The CTS sedan made its official debut at the Detroit Motor Show and is expected to go on sale in Europe this October. It’s expected that VM Motori will supply a 3.0L V6 diesel developing 245hp. Last year, General Motors only managed to move 464 CTS sedans in Europe. The company already sells a diesel version of the BLS lower-premium sedan with a 1.9L engine.
Cadillac requires a popular diesel model if it genuinely wants to compete with the German premium brands. Roughly 70% of Audi’s sales are diesels, while for BMW it’s close to 67% and for Mercedes-Benz 58%.
