General Motors has announced that the future for Cadillac involves a vehicle smaller than the CTS sedan and one large sedan, meaning GM will drop the DTS or STS.
The DTS, a successor to the DeVille, is built in the Detroit-Hamtramck, Mich., plant on the front-drive G architecture. The STS is built in the Lansing, Mich., Grand River Assembly plant on the rear-drive Sigma architecture.
"Generally, you’ll see kind of a smaller Cadillac entry — something less than the CTS, something around the CTS and something bigger than the CTS. That’s the product direction that we’re moving toward," said Clarke to Automotive News.
GM will likely build variants of future models, such as convertibles and coupes, to fill other product slots. GM has shown a wagon version of the CTS, but Clarke would not confirm whether GM will buid it.
