Two new CTS model will be produced at Lansing plant
GM announced that two new version of the Cadillac CTS, coupe and station wagon will be built at the Lansing Grand River assembly plant for the coming model year.
In the first half of 2009, the plant that currently makes the Cadillac CTS, STS and SRX will begin producing two-door coupe and station wagon versions of the popular entry-level luxury CTS.
In addition, a diesel engine version of the CTS sedan will be launched to boost the vehicle’s appeal in Europe.
The new CTS coupe made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this year.
The sport wagon will be important in the CTS lineup because such vehicles are popular in Europe, Caldwell said. Adding a specially designed 2.9-liter turbo diesel engine will further increase the vehicle’s appeal in Europe, where diesel-fueled cars are more prevalent.
