New GM Wagon On The Way
The much loved wagon variant of the Cadillac CTS is on its way back, but there are reports that it could debut with a different badge on its grille.
Yes, GM is considering adding a wagon back to its lineup, one that would be a spiritual successor to the Cadillac CTS sport wagon sold between 2008 and 2013. While the Cadillac brand may be a logical fit, a report from Motor Trend has GM VP and product chief Mark Reuss suggesting that such a car may not be branded a Cadillac.
That leaves the Buick and Chevrolet brands as the possible destinations for such a station wagon. Reuss also hinted that the mystery wagon could include both manual transmission and diesel engine options.
When the ATS was was first revealed, Cadillac mentioned that a diesel wagon version will be on the way for European customers. However, since then, the company has seen several changes in terms of leadership and brand direction. Currently, a wagon version of the Chevrolet Cruze is available in overseas markets.
