With sales totaling 11788 units in the month of June, Cadillac sold 39% more than June 2009. This also reflects a 33% increase in the first half 2010 over the same period in 2009.
The SRX lead the way with a 462% increase over the same month last year. CTS has also seen a 31% increase – and its best sales month in over a year.
Overall, this is certainly a result of the market recovering – though good product that customers want certainly doesn’t hurt either.

DETROIT – Cadillac reported U.S. sales of 11,788 vehicles in June, a 39 percent increase from the same month last year and the fifth consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains. Through the first half of the year, Cadillac sales are up 33 percent compared to the first half of last year.
Cadillac posted strong results in June in key markets across the United States, including retail sales increases of 50 percent or more in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Tampa, Orlando, and Denver.
The SRX mid-size luxury crossover remained in high demand as sales rose 462 percent to 3,804 in June. Redesigned for the 2010 model year, SRX has led its segment in the past year in increases for both sales and projected resale value. June was the fifth best sales month ever for SRX and second best retail sales month ever.
CTS sales rose 31 percent to 4,193, recording its best total sales month of the year and best retail sales month since March 2009. The CTS line, which includes the CTS Sport Sedan and Sport Wagon, will be expanded this summer with the all-new 2011 CTS Coupe.
CTS recently placed in the top 10 vehicles of the 2010 J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Survey, which ranks vehicles based on fewest problems in the first 90 days. Sales for Escalade, which ranked first in its category in the J.D. Power and Associates IQS survey, rose 6 percent over June 2009.
Cadillac also recently announced that for owners of all 2011 models it will provide Cadillac Premium Care Maintenance. The new program covers scheduled oil changes, tire rotations, replacement of engine and cabin air filters and multi-point vehicle inspections for the first four years or 50,000 miles.
“Cadillac has been well-positioned with SRX and CTS to win over luxury buyers as they return to the market,” said Kurt McNeil, vice president for Cadillac sales and service. “We expect the trend to continue with the launch of CTS Coupe and addition of Cadillac Premium Care Maintenance. We’re strengthening the line-up with a distinctive new vehicle and elevating the brand by providing owners with a long-term commitment to customer service.”
The CTS Coupe already is attracting attention. Car and Driver has named the CTS to its 10 Best list for the past three years and praised the CTS Coupe in an early review.
”For 2011, the new CTS Coupe joins the sedan and wagon, adding more style and a higher concentration of performance to the CTS’s winning formula,” Car and Driver wrote in a June review. “The CTS Coupe is one of those cars that love the camera, and it’s no less stunning in the flesh.”
