Cadillac STS and DTS replacement put on hold

GM has been planning to replace the Cadillac STS and DTS with one premium-luxury sedan since September of 2007. However, according to Bloomberg, plans for the new luxury-sedan have been put on hold in favor of more fuel-efficient models.

According to sources familiar with the project, the big sedan has been put on hold and its future will be decided later when consumer show more demand for larger vehicles. Right – because spending $71,685 on Cadillac Escalade Hybrid that gets 20/21mpg makes so much more sense to a environmentally conscious and frugal consumer.

Until than Cadillac will concentrate on the coupe and wagon version of the CTS sedan and the replacement for the Cadillac SRX which will be based on the Provoq concept. These three models will make their debut next year.
