Exclusive: Cadillac plans barrage to compete with German luxury brands

General Motors Co's (GM.N) Cadillac brand is planning to expand its portfolio of premium crossover vehicles by 2017, in part to better compete with similar high-end offerings from German competitors.

Cadillac also is in the midst of an unprecedented new-model rollout that will see it introduce at least six new or redesigned vehicles in the United States and China over the next 2-1/2 years, before the new crossover vehicles are launched, according to three automotive supplier sources familiar with Cadillac's plans.
