“Following a disciplined strategy led by increasing product substance, stronger transaction prices and lower incentives, we have a stronger foundation for growth,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen.

Cadillac’s two biggest growers in September were also its biggest volume-sellers: the ATS and SRX. SRX sales rose 30.2% with 9,552 global deliveries, and the SRX was up 43% with 5,663 deliveries. The growth of these two models alone was enough to sustain the brand in a month where sales of all other models in its current lineup fell by at least double digits.

To date, the SRX has amassed sales totaling 73,294 units around the globe (up 7.4%) while the ATS has moved 43,458 units (up 31.3%) Escalade sales are also up 24.8% to date.

Cadillac sales in the United States are down a mere 1.7% with a total of 125,699 units delivered, but sales are up double digits in China (56,873 vehicles, up 12.4%), Canada (8,932 vehicles, up 14.9%), Middle East (3,801 vehicles, up 21.9%), and Mexico (1,271 vehicles, up 25.5%).
