Cadillac Dealer Upbeat on New XTS Sedan Replacing Town Car
With the demise of the Lincoln Town Car as the long-time staple of the industry, General Motors is looking at its new 2013 Cadillac XTS luxury sedan as a competitive replacement.
In fact, Englewood Cliffs Cadillac, New Jersey’s newest Cadillac dealership, has brought on Bill Fellbaum to manage its venture into the limousine and livery fleet business. “The XTS is filling a huge void left by the Lincoln Town Car L Series,” said Fellbaum, a 30-year automotive industry veteran. “Clients are looking for luxury sedans to replace the old Town Cars,” he added.
Fellbaum said the Town Car left the market with no direct replacement. "While the XTS is a brand new model, it is a luxury vehicle more in line with the standard vehicles used in limousine and livery services,” he explained.
Fellbaum, who also designs and builds custom XTS and Escalade vehicles, said clients will receive priority service in the dealership’s new 20,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art service department. “Whether a client has one car or a hundred, if that vehicle is not on the road, it’s not making money, and if it’s stuck in service for a long time, it’s losing income for the client,” he said.
Englewood Cliffs Cadillac is co-owned by former New York Giants Jessie Armstead and Antonio Pierce and automotive
veteran, Mike Saporito.
