BTW Sewell Cadillac in Dallas Texas still had brand new 2011 SRX's in May of this year, and Sewell is one of the top selling dealers in the U.S. The area is saturated with Cadillac's, which tends to drive the used price down. However the used price for an SRX is still pretty high even though Sewell has like 60 used SRX's. Wait till December and there will be a fire sale.
    Sounds to me like Sewell's inventory manager does a poor job analyzing trends. And SRX resale values are high because *gasp* they sell well and haven't had large incentives. Shocking, I know.

    I'll bet you 200 e-peen points, right now, that the rebate on SRX doesn't go above $2,500 this calendar year. Whaddya say?

    Also , Cadillac retired DTS and STS so you obviously were going to see sales numbers off last quarter.

    Getting back to the subject, ATS. Is Cadillac going to give an IPad with the ATS?

    There's no rebate higher than $2k there- that's a dealer discount combined with incentives. Try harder.

    Re: Prices Added to ATS Configurator

    You want to argue two different things. I'm still waiting to see a rebate higher than $2,500 on an SRX that would "prove me wrong". If you want me to eat my words, please provide it. Sewell is quoting a dealer discount combined with a relatively small $2,000 manufacturer's rebate- a completely different scenario than what we were discussing, which is a manufacturer's rebate alone.

    You made the argument that nationwide, Cadillac required high incentives to sell. Providing an example of one dealership who stupidly overstocked and now has to blow them out to get rid of the inventory has nothing to do with how much rebate Cadillac is offering nationwide. SRX resale values are high and incentives are low, which is an indicator of high sales volume- Cadillac was up 21% over last year for the month of July in fact.

    It's perfectly normal to hope that the ATS is incentivized so you can get a great deal on one, but you don't need to invent spurious claims about the SRX to try and make your case as to why it should be. The SRX has been a smashing sales success with no rebates for its first 3 years, and the ATS will probably follow suit. Sorry if that chaps you so bad you feel the need to lash out at me.

    It was just me being a sarcastic ass.

    Caddy Chris, we shouldn't be arguing about this. All that really matters is that ATS is going to be awesome- the chips will fall where they may on pricing. Let's just get back to talking about the car.

    It's hard for me to believe some of these people are Cadillac owners. Some are SILLY.

    You failed to look at the second quote sheet for paying cash. The Rebate is $4,000. It is a nation wide rebate. Call your local dealer. And you have me confused with someone else because I do not care what the price of the ATS is I am not buying one. It is too small. And I am not a Cadillac bargain shopper. I simply replied to your post that we would never see cut rate prices. It does not chap me at all what Cadillac does with their prices. But a definitive statement like the one you made off the cuff with facts does chap me. Again let's be clear I do not care what Cadillac does with the prices, I am not sure why you think I am a bargain bin Cadillac shopper, because I have never made a statement to that affect. The Cadillac dealer called me and told me about the rebates because my family has been buying Cadillac from them for 40 years. I said sure send email me the deal sheets. Sorry to hijack this thread. My apologies to all. I will shut up now.

    I'm very close with my local dealer, and I can assure you there is no $4,000 rebate. Unless you qualify for an ancillary offer that stacks on top of the $2k cash (like currently leasing a non-GM product) then $2k is the extent of the rebates. Maybe Sewell is just stripping out all their profit and holdback, or maybe the quote is erroneous.

    Either way, this is the end of this line of conversation. Let's get back to talking about ATS.
