2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon
Unless you count the Ghostbusters ambulance and the occasional hearse, Cadillac has never built a station wagon. So the CTS Sport Wagon, on sale early this summer, is a real departure for the brand, but it's one that we fully support.
Buyers will be able to choose from two direct-injection V-6s, the 304-hp, 3.6-liter already used in the sedan and a new 3.0-liter making about 260 hp, which will also be the base engine in the 2010 sedan.
THANK THE EUROPEANS: The station wagon is the first spin-off from the CTS, Cadillac's best-selling car. A second variant, the CTS coupe, has been delayed until summer 2010. Given the sad state of U.S. wagon sales, we'd never have seen this model except for the fact that station wagons are all the rage in Europe (where Cadillac, until recently, was trying to expand).
