Report: Cadillac CTS sales nosedive as buyers look at the new ATS

Cadillac CTS sales have apparently nosedived since the launch of the ATS – sinking 40 percent in October from 2011. According to, the CTS is one of the most cross-shopped vehicles among ATS shoppers.

In the wake of the sales decline GM will start cutting back on CTS production next year.

“We planned for the ATS to take some CTS customers out of the market who otherwise would have seen,” said Cadillac’s U.S. sales chief Chase Hawkins. “We definitely are going to be producing fewer CTSs next year to create some of that space for ATS.”
