My understanding was that the CTS Wagon was built for the purpose of boosting Cadillac in Europe. But GM pulled the plug on Cadillac in Europe before it was complete. With the eningeering done it went to market in North America anyways. I've actually seen a fair number of CTS wagons around here. But us Canadians have always appreciated the wagon more than those south of the boarder.
I'm not supprised but would be dissapointed if true. If GM does plan to offer Cadillac as a global brand a wagon model will eventually be a must.
See my cars stats below
Bummer. Its the only wagon I've ever liked!! CTS-V wagon is Bad-A$$!!!!
Durango Limited Hemi 5.7L
Audi S4 2.7TT
Ford Explorer 5.0L
Pontiac Grand AM 3.4L
Chevy Corsica 3.0L
Toyota Tercel "Turdcel"
Ford LTD Station Wagon "Blue Thunder"
Does anyone know if they built any CTS wagons with the 3.6 V6 & manual transmission? (This would be a fun used car)
Sorry to see it go. The CTS wagon is a very attractive car. It is WAY nicer than the Mercedes E-class wagon. Too bad it didn't sell in better numbers to keep it going into the next generation. May look at trading the STS in on one while they still make them.
I would like a CTSV wagon. Can't get the wife on board though.
I just had to sell our CTS wagon (unexpectantly expecting a third child - the CTS couldn't fit all three + any friends) - just about cried when I let it go. Best combination of ride/handling I have ever driven. And an ultra-rare car - I can't count the number of thumbs-up I got driving that car. In fact, I liked it so much that we settled for a year-older SRX with a third-row as its replacement. It's the closest thing I could find that had that combo of ride/handling (although, with the sport package in the SRX, it seems to trade the ride a bit for flatter handling). The sigma platform is awesome, and I hate to see it go with the next CTS. However, I sold the CTS to a family member and have first crack at it back if/when they ever sell it.

The 5 passenger wagon is a bigger deal in Europe, but too bad. Those wagon taillights were the coolest thing Caddy has made in decades!

Future car: Cadillac ELR or Tesla Model S
I never said they were in the same field but merely cross shopped in the same dealership and the higher MSRP made it hard for the wagon to compete with the SRX.

I believe this leaves exactly zero wagons for sale by an American manufacturer.
FYI... one can buy a 2010 CTS 3.6 AWD Wagon for about the same price as a FWD 3.0 SRX.
That choice is what they call a "no-brainer".

If a Cruze Diesel wagon were offered in the US, what would Mr/Mrs US consumer buy? A 30MPG Equinox or the 50+ MPG Cruze wagon? The Cruze Diesel wagon would put a serious dent in the sales #'s for the Equinox. GM won't allow that to happen.....
