2020 Cadillac CT5 Sedan Will Replace Cadillac ATS, CTS, XTS
It had been formerly believed that the Cadillac ATS and The Cadillac CTS would run their course until the in close proximity to end of the 10 years, then Cadillac would replace the compact executive and mid-size sedans with brand new models. According to brain honcho Johan de Nysschen, that’s not actually the case, not even for the recently facelifted 2020 Cadillac XTS.
Speaking to media present at the most recent GM earnings call, Cadillac’s leading figure made it clear the automaker intends to interrupt its sedan profile from the beginning up. The Cadillac ATS, CTS, and XTS will smash to a halt in 2019, with the 2020 Cadillac CT5 scheduled to take over from then on.
Basic Motors filed trademarks for plenty Cadillac CT- and XT-branded models with the USPTO prior to the launch of the Cadillac CT6, so it stands likely the replacement for the current sedan lineup will endure the name of 2020 Cadillac CT5. Taking into consideration the dimensions of the Cadillac CT6 and the development from 5-to-6, it wouldn’t be amazing if the mystery model will be smaller than Cadillac’s current flagship.
That is expected the medium sized 2020 Cadillac CT5 will enter development at the overall Motors vegetable in Lansing, Michigan, the place where Cadillac companies the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS. Johan de Nysschen further claimed a tiny luxury sedan is also on the way, and just like its bigger brother, it will see the light of day in Lansing.

There’s still speculation on the name for the compact-sized car, many outlets suggesting The Cadillac CT3 be the beginner. Also from the gossip mill, all bets are on the GM Alpha dog vehicle platform and the key rivals would come as Mercedes-Benz’s and Audi’s future CLA and A3 Four door.
In Cadillac’s view, electrification isn’t a priority for the longer term. de Nysschen declared that this individual took note of what Volvo is doing to its lineup, and Basic Motors’ crown jewel programs an electrified assault of its own in the second half the next decade. A bit overdue to the game, if I may say so.
