Click above for high-res gallery of Cadillac CTS Wagon spy shots

Codenamed internally as the GMX 206, the Cadillac CTS Wagon has clearly gone beyond the consideration phase within GM's hallowed halls and is actively being developed. This prototype was just caught by spy photographers and the profile is unmistakable evidence that the CTS will soon get some extra cargo space. Cadillac's plan to expand the CTS into a full-fledged lineup that can compete with the likes of the the BMW 3-Series and Audi A4 hinges on producing more variants than just the sedan. The CTS Coupe Concept was introduced at the Detroit Auto Show in January, so it's no surprise that we're seeing the wagon in development now and we would expect a convertible version of the coupe eventually, as well. Sources say that Cadillac will build around 10,000 - 12,000 units of the CTS wagon at the same Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant as the sedan and coupe, with most of those being earmarked for sale in Europe. And we have to say that the Family Truckster has never looked so sharp.

      If its handsome enough, i could see lux cars like these possibly attracting some of those big lux suv buyers away from them and getting into these lux wagons....here's to hoping!

        Hopefully it will sell. Cadillac's SRX is such a clunker.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I wonder how many SRX owners will consider this for their new Caddy? I wondered why they didn't update the SRX when they updated the CTS with a new platform, since the SRX was based off the old CTS.

        The SRX was a non-starter for me... if I wanted a tall-tippy wagon I wouldn't be so spiteful that Subaru has left me with only the Outback version of the Legacy Wagon as a possible replacement for my Legacy GT. This car, with a reasonable ride height and CTS style has real potential.

          The SRX replacement is on the way. It is a major luanch as well so they are staggering it after the CTS to make sure it (the CTS) had a trouble free launch as it is arguably more important for the company. IMO, the SRX was a disapointment because it looked too much like a wagon. Its replacement supposedly as more upright CUV styling to better take on its arch nemesis the Lexus RX. I like wagons too, I have always liked European models especially. BMW, Merc an Audi do them right. I thought the Magnum and the Lexus IS Sportcross were hideous though. I doubt America is ready for a CTS wagon at all though, no matter how good it looks.

      Now give me a damn diesel or hybrid, and I will buy one!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Can we first state a fact- the Magnum is rather unsightly and the interior is worse than a base Kia. I think if wagons were pitched the right way- car performance with room of an SUV, they'll sell. Face it, all people have been driving lately are raised station wagons anyway. I'll take my CTS in Grey and my G8 Wagon in red, thank you very much (both with a third pedal...)

        +1
        CTS(edan)
        CTC(oupe)
        CTW(agon)

        That's how they should be. Not CTS Wagon, etc.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I like it (what I see so far). If I had the money I'd be all over something like this.
      • 6 Years Ago
      this > any crossover

      gimme, in black with and ls3 and 6 manual gears.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I like it.. looks very clean and smooth.

      Think there will be a V? :)

      I love a wagon.

      This - if the AWD is performance oriented (read rear-biased torque distribution) - could be my next purchase.

      Unless Subaru sees the trend and re-introduces a Legacy GT Wagon.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I love wagons, but if the poor sales numbers of the Dodge Magnum are anything to go by, a lot of Americans aren't gonna be too keen on this. I hope for GM's sake this does well.
        • 6 Years Ago
        The Magnum was a decent seller before gas was rose sharply. The CTS isn't exactly fuel efficient, but it's acceptable compared to the Charger/Magnum. If Cadillac can position this as a SUV alternative with better-than-crossover fuel economy, then I doubt they will have a tough time selling them.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks to have a Magnum-like sloping roofline. I'd rather it have a more straight, traditional roofline. I'll wait to see it with the camo off to make my judgment.

      I love this wagon!!!!!

      Too bad we cant get the G8 wagon! I see GM selling more wagons at a cheaper price then what this one will be marketed at. Plus they already have ALL the panels ready as it would be an exact copy as the G8 GT.

      Love it in white!!
