Oshawa, Ontario – Cadillac has announced pricing for its all-new 2010 CTS Sport Wagon, which will go on sale this month starting at $44,325 in rear-wheel drive, and $46,950 in all-wheel drive.

The new wagon offers the same design and technical features of the CTS sport sedan, but in a body style that effectively doubles the car’s cargo space.

“Cadillac’s first-ever wagon in Canada offers new dimensions of versatility and fuel efficiency in line with the changing priorities of luxury consumers,” said Marc Comeau, vice-president of sales, service and marketing for GM of Canada. “The Sport Wagon provides impressive cargo flexibility while retaining the CTS’s acclaimed balance of performance and luxury, all with highway fuel consumption of just 7.2 L/100 km.”

The Sport Wagon comes with a choice of two engines, both built by GM’s facility in St. Catharines, Ontario: a 3.0-litre direct-injection V6 with variable valve timing, producing 270 horsepower, and an optional 3.6-litre direct-injection V6 that produces 304 horsepower. Both use a six-speed automatic transmission, and both operate on regular-grade gasoline.

While essentially the same size as the CTS sport sedan on the outside, the Sport Wagon provides nearly twice the carrying capacity, with 720 litres (25 cubic feet) of space behind the rear seats, and 1,642 litres (58 cubic feet) with the rear seat folded. Available features include a 40-gigabyte internal hard drive and pop-up navigation screen.
