Cadillac has discontinued the CTS Midnight Edition for the 2016 model year, GM Authority has discovered.
Initially offered for the interim model year 2015 CTS, the $1,095 package equipped the midsize sport-luxury sedan with various black exterior accents, including:
- Black window moldings
- Black chrome grille
- 18-inch dark premium painted aluminum wheels
The package also included a sueded microfiber steering wheel and sueded microfiber shifter. It was only available with the Performance and Premium trim levels and with four exterior colors, including:
- Cocoa Bronze Metallic
- Crystal White Tricoat
- Phantom Gray Metallic
- Black Raven
News of the discontinuation of the CTS Midnight Edition comes after GM Authority discovered that Cadillac also dropped the ATS Midnight Edition for the 2016 model year. The move is rather unfortunate given that Cadillac’s primary competitors, namely BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Lexus, all offer a way to equip their midsize sedan offerings with black-out accents, which has become a growing design trend in the sport-luxury market.
