Haven't seen one. Actually, I haven't seen any ATS wagons. Doesn't mean they aren't in the works as a future model though.

I don't know if it's still true, but historically GM has lost money on all their cars just to be competitive in the market. Their manufacturing costs (labor) are higher than their competitors thanks to old UAW contracts that they can't seem to get rid of. GM makes up the difference and sees profit from crossovers and trucks.

I don't know if you can ask which one they make more money on. It might be a case of which one loses less . I would expect the ATS will cost more for the moment just because it is an all new platform. The tools and any new capital investment for manufacturing and assembly hasn't been paid off through years of rolling costs into the price of vehicles.
