The Cadillac CTS wagon was an awesome, beautiful beast with all the check marks in all the right boxes; it was luxurious, sporty (especially in its V-badged form), and capacious enough to more than suit the everyday needs of the everyday owner.
Sadly, it was discontinued last year. Out of a sense of sorrow, or perhaps desperation, Motor Trend reached out to General Motors to try and get the skinny on any future plans the automaker might have to replace it.
According to Motor Trend, GM President Mark Reuss stated that despite both the ATS and CTS making for potentially fitting bases for the automaker’s next station wagon, in all likelihood, the new car would not bear the Cadillac crest. But General Motors is strongly considering replacing the Cadillac CTS wagon with a new estate in the American market, so more likely the car would come along as either a Chevrolet, or a Buick.
Mr. Reuss also indicated that a diesel powerplant and a manual transmission would be likely options for the next GM estate, to which we say: “Okay!” So if you were as big a fan of the second-generation Cadillac CTS wagon as we, weep not for its demise quite yet; something new is waiting in the wings.
