November 2017 Average Transaction Prices (ATPs)
Cadillac says that it is continuing to focus on high-quality retail business in the United States while reducing exposure to fleet sales. The U.S. luxury car market continues to experience contraction in demand for sedans, but Cadillac has been able to partially offset this impact with strong sales of the XT5 and the iconic Escalade, resulting in 8.1 percent growth in SUV portfolio sales in the first 11 months of 2017.
In November, Cadillac’s U.S. average transaction prices maintained the upward trajectory established over the past two years, remaining above $54,000. Cadillac continues to have the second-highest average transaction prices among major luxury automotive brands in the U.S.

General Motors CEO Mary Barra should promote Andreas Schaaf to become Cadillac’s next President replacing Johan de Nysschen; Schaaf currently is Cadillac Vice President and in charge of Cadillac of China as Schaaf knows and understands what it takes to sell Cadillac vehicles.. as it’s obvious that Schaaf and de Nysschen do not share the same idea as Schaaf wants as many people in China to own a Cadillac as possible and streets looking like a Cadillac showroom.
What are you talking about?! Do you even understand what you are writing?
Cadillac sales in China have nothing to do with any master plan or effort by Schaaf. They are simply related to local manufacturing of the models like the ATS, CT6, XTS and XT5, leading to the decrease in prices of the models. This is an effort that was started 15 years ago and whose results we are seeing this year. Scaaf wasn’t around back then, and neither was JDN.
You make these suggestions without truly understanding the role of the people involved, their experience, or what they do or represent to Cadillac or to GM. What’s the point of calling for someone’s head when you yourself don’t seem to understand the reasons for the movement of sales figures?
Good job Cadillac! Keep it up! Performance is already there, so continue with focus on quality and future looks good.
Good news for Cadillac that the consumers have taken to the XT5 .It would be interesting to see what model is selling the best . In my neck of the woods it’s the FWD Luxury model and that kind of pars with what Cadillac claims is an ATP of $54,000.
JDN’s model for Cadillac seems to be working , sell fewer cars but at a higher TP = profit vs. market share . Not bad for a market that is basically flat for the first seven months of the year .
It also works as the worlds economies are doing well especially in China where their middle class continues to grow at a rate higher than the U.S. .
Maybe when this hiatus is over and new products show up the home market will turn around .
Honestly to me, a lot of people think that Cadillac’s marketing is to blame for their “poor” sales at home but honestly if you look at it they sale half of what their competitors sale and majority of their lineup is sedan based with only the XT5 and Escalade having business in the SUV space, not to mention not selling the variety of products that BMW and Mercedes sell. I feel that with the introduction of 2 new crossovers and the upcoming sedan lineup, Cadillac could easily exceed 200,000 units plus, at home, on top of their already high ATP. I don’t think Cadillac fell off too much… I think the last decade of changing their demographic has definitely defined them, and change their brand image. The future looks bright.
