The Cadillac global product offensive is gathering momentum as the General Motors premium brand will debut the production Cadillac BLS at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt. This new premium mid-size saloon adds another important element to Cadillac’s growing international presence following the launch of the CTS in 2003, the XLR and the SRX in 2004, the STS in 2005, and the recently announced addition of the STS-V and XLR-V.
The front-wheel drive BLS offers expressive design, outstanding ride and refinement. It also marks a new era in the brand’s history, with its first turbodiesel variant and is fitted with a maintenance-free diesel particulate filter. Like the petrol versions (175, 210, and 255 hp), the turbodiesel (150 hp) offers the dynamic driving performance that customers have come to expect from Cadillac.
"The BLS was developed for luxury customers, with particular attention to the demands of the European and other international markets," said Jim Taylor, Cadillac general manager. "BLS is an important addition to our Cadillac portfolio and provides a critical entry with which to grow our business in key international markets."
