Don't know if this is new news or not: "GM has sold 10,234 CTS coupes this year through September, accounting for 24.4 percent of total CTS sales. Cadillac reported 41,900 CTS sales through September, up nearly 29 percent from the same period last year. That included 30,049 sedans and 1,617 wagons."

"The CTS coupe's sales may be nearly one-third less than the mainline sedan but Cadillac sees the niche vehicle as a key part of a revitalized division that hopes to add more younger carbuyers to its traditional base of older customers. " Yup. Mission accomplished. They could have said the same about the V series. I certainly did not consider Cadillac before purchasing my V. If Cadillac keeps up the good work and their other planned product launches give them some depth, they may actually have a shot at being the top of the luxury pile again.

For a production figure ending in September does that include 2011MY and 2012MY produced to that date? They show Wagon production to be 1,617. If the V's account for about ten percent of CTS production and Wagons about ten percent of all CTS-V production, that would be less then 200 V-Wagons.

With the coupe, v-series, and escalade, cadillac is getting younger and that's a good thing. Though as I sit here in the service waiting room of a major dealership the average age of those waiting is prob 65. Oh well. I like that I drive a really fast "old man's car.". LOL.
