Cadillac STS: A Best Selling 2005 Model
Interesting. Hanging around here people would have you believe that the STS is a Dud and that dealers can't give them away.
The 2005 model year has been excellent for new entries into the automobile market. Here's a look at the hottest of the hot:
Here's what they said of the Cadillac, it was behind the ChryCo's 300, Magnum, and Honda's Accord Hybrid.
The 2005 Cadillac STS is a four-door, five-passenger luxury sedan, or luxury sports sedan, available in two trims, the V6 and the V8. The V6 is equipped with a standard 3.6-liter, V6, 255-horsepower engine that achieves 17 mpg in the city and 24 on the highway.
The V8 is equipped with a standard 4.6-liter, V8, 320-horsepower engine that gets 17 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway. A five-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard on both. MSRP is $40,525 for the V6 and $47,025 for the V8.
According to Cadillac spokesperson Deborah Silverman, dealers sold 3,240 units in December. The STS made its debut in November. Days-to-turn for the STS is 29 nationwide, but some dealers are selling them almost as soon as they are delivered.
"We have waiting lists for the top of the top-of-the-line STS V8," says Tony Catalfo, sales manager at Ed Morse's Bayview Cadillac in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Nationwide, the STS's days-to-turn is a vigorous 29 days, but Catalfo says it's only 15 at his South Florida dealership.
By the way, the industry average for all cars is 66 days-to-turn.

What a good post. I think overall sales are good for the new Cadillac lineup when measured against current industry standards. My dealership tells me that his Cadillac sales are extremly strong.
After GM's bad week ( stock price ) they need the trend to continue.
