The XTS has been around since 2013, when GM needed a big, cushy sedan to fill its lineup of otherwise non-traditional Cadillac vehicles.The best sales year for the luxury four-door was its first, when it sold 32,559 units in the U.S. and 787 in Canada. Sales have been declining sharply since, as buyers turn their attention away from sedans and toward SUVs. As was previously reported, GM’s Oshawa plant will be shifting production to parts only, and most of its 2,600 employees will either be transferred to other GM facilities, or be given packages for early retirement. Some 300 jobs will remain at the plant after the transition.
