There's One Cadillac That Sold Out This Year And It's Not The Escalade

Sales

And it happens to be our favorite Caddie.

Cadillac has never had a problem selling Escalades. The big SUV has been a consistent money-maker for GM’s luxury brand for several years. However newer models, like the BMW 3 Series-fighting ATS, haven’t been the sales performer Cadillac was hoping for. But there is another Caddie sedan that’s been a sales success, so much so it’s sold out for 2016. This would be the CTS-V and, according to GM Authority, Cadillac has confirmed it "had more orders than (it) could fulfill."

We’re pretty sure the CTS-V’s 6.2-liter LT4 supercharged V8 is its greatest selling point. Remember, this is the BMW M5 fighter that, especially in its previous generation, helped establish Cadillac as a force to be reckoned with in the luxury high performance segment. All told, a little less than 2,000 CTS-Vs were sold. The most popular options, with 51 percent of buyers checking the box, turned out to be carbon fiber and the darkened wheels.
