If any of you guys haven't seen in the past couple of days, there have been several spy photos of a Cadillac CTS-V Sportwagon floating around the 'net. And, I cannot say I am thrilled about this

Now, before I get on a rant here, I am just curious:

How many of you guys are interested -- as in you would buy tomorrow -- in a Cadillac CTS-V Sportwagon?

Do not get me wrong, I adore wagons, especially the hot ones. I love the Audi RS6 wagon and I believe if there is one car that should be imported into the U.S. it is that one. Additionally, I think the Cadillac CTS-V is the best American car ever built.

The problem is, from past experiences, wagons just do not sell well. Particularly hopped up ones.

The CTS-V has a great exhaust note, handles the curves with ease, has gobs of power, it has the best interior any American car has been equipped with and it even tore up Germany's Nurburgring.

But for an automaker that was just bailed out with taxpayer dollars and is not entirely out of the clear, I do not understand why the firm has decided to go ahead with a low volume player like the V wagon. Is the market bigger than I think?

Mercedes-Benz's E63 wagon was for sale in the U.S. but you would not know it because they are that uncommon. BMW's M5 and Audi's RS6 have not made an appearance in our market either. And, if you even take a look into the regular versions of wagons in the U.S. marketplace, they have not been volume players either.

Am I right OR are wagons due for a comeback?
