The brand continues its sustained trajectory of increasing transaction prices. According to Power Information Network, the average U.S. transaction price for a new Cadillac in March rose to $54,268, thousands more than luxury competitors such as BMW, Audi and Lexus.

“For ten consecutive months now, Cadillac’s disciplined strategy and strong product substance have produced double-digit gains of global sales growth,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “Average transaction prices in the U.S market continue to increase, and the XT5 luxury crossover continues to grow the business in one of the most competitive segments.”
