Cadillac Sales Data, Trends, Analysis & Current Lineup for the U.S Automotive Market

This is your hub for all of the Cadillac sales data for the U.S market. Cadillac is trying to return to its former glory as an American premium brand, and has been distancing its models from their Chevrolet counterparts. Cadillac has also promised to stop heavy discounting in order to boost resale values. Still, products like the BMW 3-series fighter ATS and the CT6 large sedan have not proven as successful as hoped, while the brand can’t produce enough of the high-margin, but from a marketing perspective “old-fashioned” Escalade SUV. The Escalade nameplate is so valuable to the Cadillac brand that it’s been the only one to have been left alone in its confusing model naming strategies. However, like its American counterpart Lincoln, Cadillac has decided to change back from meaningless alphanumerics to real names again. Perhaps surprisingly to some, Cadillac sells more cars in China than it does in the US, and especially its sedans are still in high demand in the People’s Republic.

Everybody knows Cadillac as the luxury brand that sits within the General Motors portfolio of brands. Cadillac is more than just a US brand however, being sold in over 34 additional markets throughout the world. It is one of the oldest and most respected luxury brands and has recently had a resurgence in the quality and design of their cars. At one time, Cadillac has been considered as a status symbol that was synonymous with success and achievement.

The company dominated the US market and managed to outsell other car manufacturers in the US for decades. About 40 years ago, Cadillac owns almost a third of the luxury vehicle market in the US. But today, Cadillac holds less than 7% of the luxury vehicle market in the US and is facing serious competition from other car manufacturers.

The current Cadillac lineup in the US consists of Crossovers and SUVs, Sedans, Coupes and its V-Series of spicy performance cars. The XT4 is an entry level crossover (in Cadillac’s range). Up from that is the XT5 which gives you a nicer interior. Spend some more money and the XT6 rounds out the small crossovers. The big boys of the Cadillac range are the Escalade and Escalade ESV, distinguished, unmistakable and iconic people movers. The Escalade is impossible to ignore.

In terms of sedans, the CT5 sits in the entry level spot followed by the well known CTS. The CTS-V also comes as the CTS-V, a 640 horsepower, 200 mph sedan that clearly is for the petrol heads. The XTS and CT6 round out the Cadillac sedan models (with a CTS-V available too). The only coupe on sale at the moment is the ATS which is stylish but hasn’t had huge success.

Cadillac U.S Sales Figures & Recent Highlights

Cadillac’s sales numbers in the U.S have been a bit of a roller coaster over the last few decades. The early 2000s were good for Cadillac, selling over 200,000 cars a year in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. Things got bad during the financial crisis with 2008 sales of 161,159 (down over 70k units in one year) and 2009 sales of only 109,092 (down 52,000 on 2008s numbers).

An improving economy and a big improvement in the quality, style and performance of the cars being made by Cadillac saw sales start to rise again in 2010 to 146,925 units and then growth till 2013 when sales peaked at 182,543. Still way off from Cadillac’s hay day for sure, but signs of life. Since then sales have declined each year as competition has heated up in Cadillac’s core segments. 2018 sales were 154,702, capping three years of declines for the brand in the U.S.

Cadillac sales in the U.S. decreased by 15% in the second quarter of 2023, to 19,189 vehicles. This was the first quarterly decline for the brand since Q4 2021. The Cadillac XT5 sales decreased 18.75% to 7,077 units in Q2 2023. The Cadillac CT5 sales decreased 10.53% to 4,269 units in Q2 2023. The Cadillac CT4 sales decreased 27.27% to 3,843 units in Q2 2023. On the upside, Cadillac announced that reservations for the Lyriq electric SUV have topped 240,000. The Lyriq is scheduled to go on sale in the United States in early 2023.

Overall, Cadillac is facing some challenges in the United States. The brand is seeing declining sales of its gasoline-powered vehicles, and it is not yet clear how well the Lyriq will be received by consumers. However, Cadillac is investing heavily in electric vehicles, and it is hoping that the Lyriq will be a success.
