Click above for a high-res gallery of the Cadillac CTS Wagon.

Cadillac's product onslaught will continue with another iteration of the CTS that takes aim at the Kraut-wagons from Mercedes and BMW. The CTS wagon will debut in 2009 and will be sold worldwide, and it's expected that the CTS coupe will debut later that year.

As expected, the Provoq concept will replace the SRX in 2010 and will ditch its predecessor's Sigma underpinnings and utilize a new platform created by blending the Theta and Epsilon architectures. Power will be provided by a V6 and Cadillac's general manager, Jim Taylor, expects annual sales to land somewhere between 60,000 and 70,000 units.

      Props to Cadillac if they actually call it a 'wagon', and don't go to the idiotic lengths to create a new, hip acronym like USLAV - the new "Ultimate Sports Lifestyle Activity Vehicle"...aka, "I'm making up for something". Take off the mask and show it for what it is. Wagons are a solid piece of family-hauling greatness, but will it pick up 70,000 car shoppers a year? That's a whole lot of cards on the table for a Cadillac Station Wagon.

      not sure, kinda digging it... wagon's are good, but this seems a bit on the porky side.

      I love to see a troubled carmaker making good decisions. Thousands of X5 and ML-Class owners will be looking to downsize over the next few years, and now they'll have a reason to shop GM.

      "Cadillac's product onslaught will continue with another iteration of the CTS that takes aim at the Kraut-wagons from Mercedes and BMW."

      Do they forget that Audi, too, makes wagons? S4 and RS4 Avants are no slouches - even if it is rumored that the S4 Avant will no longer be sold in the US, and the RS4 Avant never has - BOO Audi of America.

      I would rather see thousands of these proper wagon (crossovers? LOL, marketing double speak) on the street than a bunch of suvs.

      I wish GM would also focus on making their existing products better.

      A wagon? Meh.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Why meh? You could still buy the sedan, or the impractical coupe if you don't like wagons. Are you in the market for a CTS-class car and now going to pass because they will OFFER a wagon? Or do you just think everyone should drive what you approve of?

      "The German word Kraut when standing alone in English is used most frequently as a slur against German people. Kraut is also used as an abbreviation for the traditional German food, sauerkraut."

      Did you mean it as a slur or a description of the food?

      Wow, can't wait to see one of these wagons on the road. That profile reminds me a lot of the Magnum, only this one will have a better interior and hopefully a stick.

      Nice to see Wagons making a comeback.

      Oh my GOD !!!! The return of the station wagon. Funny how the minivan almost killed them during their 20 year run from the mid 80's, but now with fuel prices high, the station wagons are making a comeback. Ah, the days of sitting in the third row and facing the back, watching the scenery and time go by...

        That may prompt Subaru to bring back the Legacy GT and/or BMW to do the 335i Wagon here!
