Detroit, Michigan – Cadillac has announced it will grow its brand in Europe with the addition of the new BLS Wagon later this year. It is the first factory production station wagon in the company’s 104-year history.
An international team of designers created the design. “The whole team was very excited to apply Cadillac’s design language to a wagon for the first time,” says Ed Welburn, GM vice-president of Global Design. “The V-shaped chrome-plated grille, a Cadillac hallmark, is picked up again by the shape of the rear window, and the body side character lines make it unmistakably a Cadillac.”
The front-wheel drive wagon will be offered with a choice of three turbocharged gasoline engines or a turbodiesel, and depending on the engine, a six-speed manual transmission, or five- or six-speed automatic. The BLS Wagon will be in European Cadillac showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2007.
