Here's the lede off a story today atop Crain's breaking news daily auto rag, Automotive News:
"General Motors will unveil a Cadillac CTS wagon this fall in an effort to compete with BMW's 3 series and Mercedes C-class wagons. Cadillac intends to start production in 2009 for global sale. GM has shown a CTS coupe concept to be produced next year."Really? So GM's really going to build a 2010 Cadillac CTS wagon? Who knew? Wait, we did. Also — a 3-series? Our sources tell us the CTS wagon will more likely be a direct competitor to the 5-Series and E-Class wagon rather than a 3-Series. OK Automotive News, what else ya got?
Well, it looks like they also know there's a new SRX is on the way for 2010 and surprise, it'll be the BRX/Provoq concept:
"Cadillac also plans to replace its current SRX crossover with a production version of the Provoq concept crossover as a 2010 model."Wait — this sounds familiar. Didn'tEdmunds Inside Line already tell us this? Hmm, maybe we should start charging for access over here at the Jalop. [via Automotive News (sub. req.)]
