For one reason or another Cadillac vehicles have been sticking around dealership lots the way certain overaged men live in their mother’s basements. Yes, bad news for Cadillac – but it’s great news for consumers. Jalopnik recently compiled this list of five Cadillacs with impulsion-promoting discounts, and if you’re in the market for a new car you’ll certainly want to check it out.
The first car on the list is a 2014 Cadillac ATS Luxury with the 3.6-liter LFX V6. It’s fully loaded, is brand new with only 33 miles, and carries a price tag of $28,900 – that’s over $14K off of the MSRP. Yes, as Jalopnik points out, you could have a 335 horsepower luxury sedan for less than the price of a well-equipped 2016 Chevrolet Malibu.
The second car on the list is a 2014 CTS with the 2.0L LTG turbo four-pot and 7,000 miles on the clock. Originally $51,185, the car’s sticker price has been slashed to $34,806 in an effort to move it off the lot. Sure, it’s a pretty sizable discount, but any pragmatist can quickly imagine further depreciation. Such is the case with most luxury vehicles.
There’s also a low-mileage (6,500) 2014 XTS Premium for $40,500 versus the original $58,175, and a potentially collectible 2014 ELR for only $52,000. Sure it’s got 5,446 miles on it, but at over thirty grand off of the MSRP someone who wanted a brand new ELR could probably look the other way (or at least not at the dash).
The Beyoncé of this lineup is the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V with a 6-speed manual. The listed price is $61,769, which means that you could get the Twin-Turbo 3.6-liter V6 LF4-powered sports car for $11,000 off of the original price.
