While it’s historically never been an American thing, global luxury brands have inherently offered a wide variety of diesel-powered vehicles, as diesel cars account for roughly 50% of all new car sales in Europe. And they seem to have been catching on here in America in recent years with increased awareness of VW AG’s TDI line, Mercedes-Benz’s BlueTec family, and even BMW’s less inspiring-sounding Advanced Diesel line.
The aforementioned brands are also Cadillac’s chief rivals. So wouldn’t it make sense if the brand offered diesel engines in the SRX, CTS, XTS or even the enourmous Escalade? Or do you see diesel as an ever-unprofitable niche that should be left alone and shouldn’t expand beyond the ATS diesel? Sound off in the comments below!
