No '04 STS, Says Caddy

Buyers interested in the current generation of Cadillac's STS shouldn't look forward to a 2004 model. Cadillac executives at the launch of the brand's SRX crossover and XLR roadster report that the STS will finish its production run as a front-drive vehicle as a 2003 model. The 2004 model will be skipped and a new 2005 rear-drive replacement for the STS, based on GM's new Sigma architecture, will be unveiled late in 2004. The current STS, selling at the rate of about 20,000 units a year, is built at GM's Hamtramck plant; its successor will be assembled alongside the SRX and CTS at the Lansing Grand River assembly plant. -Marty Padgett

That's okay. As long as it'll be back quickly... What's one year?

Probably not a bad move since buyers would be very hesitant to plunk down the big bucks for something they KNOW is going to depreciate like an even bigger rock than it would otherwise if the model line wasn't changing over.

There was another thread about high depreciation recently. It's sad but I figure it's good for those of us who want a good deal on a 2-3 year old car... :)
