    • Cadillac XTS, CTS, and ATS sedans getting the axe and they will not be replaced

      Sad news but Cadillac only has themselves to blame. The ATS-V may be well regarded and well reviewed but people would rather opt for Audi, BMW, or Mercedes. The CTS-V may be the best driver's sedan out of the mid-size performance sedan bunch but it is not selling as anticipated.


      Why? Well, the CTS-V may have its price to blame. Cadillac should have provided a greater value. The ATS-V just does not have as well rounded of a package as its rivals. The exterior styling is nothing special and inside it is behind the times. Cadillac has not been able to give ATS-V's away.

      The CT6 will survive as Cadillac needs a larger sedan in the portfolio. It will be joined by a CT5 which will be offered instead of an ATS, CTS, and XTS.

      Maybe it is not all on Cadillac as even BMW's sedan sales are sharply down overall. The truth may be somewhere in the middle of less sedan demand and Cadillac just not offering attractive enough cars.

        Looks like there will still be three sedans according to the article, CT6, CT5, and unnamed Audi A3 competitor.

        More of a name change for next gen sedans, rather than axing of sedans all together.

        It shouldn't be long before $20,000 ATS-V's are an option. Did anyone ever put together a stock frame turbo upgrade for them?

        Right but there won't be another CTS, ATS, or XTS.

        So the CT6 stays and their portfolio goes down to one mid-size from three and one small entry level sedan.

        They saturated it way too much. I didn't even know they were still making an XTS. Seems pointless.
