Last Cadillac STS Drives Off the Line as Lansing Plant Gears-Up for New Model

Last Cadillac STS Drives Off the Line as Lansing Plant Gears-Up for New Model

General Motors has quietly phased out production of the Cadillac STS. The last sedan drove off the Lansing Grand River assembly line last week.

The ending of STS production will not result in any layoffs, however, as all workers will retain the same hours and will continue to build the CTS. The STS and the high performance STS-V have been made at the factory since August 2004. Since then, 125,000 STSes have been produced.

Next year workers will begin production of a new small Cadillac says brand spokesperson Jordana Strosberg. GM officials call the new car the “alpha platform,” but it will reportedly be called the ATS when it hits dealers.

Replacing both the STS and DTS in Caddy’s lineup is a new full sized luxury sedan based on the XTS Concept, although official production of this car has yet to be confirmed.
