Cadillac will show the redesigned 2008 CTS in January 2007 at the Detroit motor show.

Sales begin late next summer in the US and in Europe towards the end of 2007.

Cadillac sold over 61,000 units of the CTS in its domestic market during 2005, compared to roughly 38,000 in 2002, an increase of 60% over that period. The sustained sales growth over nearly five years is counter to conventional industry logic that a new car's hottest sales occur shortly after launch.

There are roughly 275,000 CTS owners worldwide, and industry researchers say they are among the most satisfied in the automotive market. AutoPacific rated the CTS as the top entry luxury car in its annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards in 2006.
