With so many foreign and domestic auto makers introducing new vehicles (big and small), Cadillac realized it was time to build on the popularity of Cadillac CTS and is bringing new rides to the lots at Lindsay Cadillac in Alexandria, VA.
Fear not, Cadillac may be changing its formula slightly, but they won't forget about the luxury we've all grown accustomed to.
The company has introduced two new cars for 2012: a smaller ATS sedan and larger XTS. ATS will be sportier than CTS, and is also the planned replacement for flagship DTS models, according to rumors.
2012's XTS is a larger model for those still looking to remain in the sedan arena. A front wheel drive model with plenty of standard gadgets inside, the car is powered by a high performance V6 power plant, and will come with optional all-wheel-drive.
According to senior editor at Edmunds Auto Observer Bill Visnic, "Cadillac needs to be in the [small car] segment, and it needs to be a player in the high-output, high-fuel-efficiency four-cylinder engines the ATS will use." 1
Models like CTS have brought some attention to the company already, due to its many variants like CTS wagon and CTS-V coupe.
