Scoop: 2020 CT5 Sedan To Open A New Chapter For Cadillac 12

The first spy shots of the 2020 Cadillac CT5 have landed, giving us a first taste of the upcoming executive sedan.

The upcoming Cadillac CT5 will replace both the ATS, CTS and XTS when it arrives in the market sometime in late 2019. According to Cadillac’s president, the company wants to “rebalance” its sedan portfolio, which admittedly has too many members at the moment.

The all-new Cadillac CT5 will be based on the new version of GM’s Alpha architecture, with inside sources indicating that it will only use the long-wheelbase version of the platform. Both rear- and all-wheel drive versions will be on offer.

The engine range will include a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder, a 3.6-liter V6 as well as a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 for the range-topping V model. Cadillac is also reportedly planning a plug-in hybrid version based on the four-cylinder models.

The upcoming Cadillac CT5 is expected to enter production in Q2 or Q3 of 2019 at the Lansing Grand River plant, with sales to begin towards the end of the same year.

2019 Cadillac XT4 Tackles The Arctic Circle For Some Last Minute Winter Testing 10

Cadillac’s lineup is heavy on sedans and light on crossovers but that’s about to change as the company is putting the finishing touches on the all-new XT4.

Designed to compete with rivals such as the BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC, the XT4 will become the company’s entry-level crossover when it is launched later this year. Cadillac has been tight-lipped about the model but the latest spy photos show the crossover will follow in the footsteps of the XT5 and feature a prominent grille, a relatively short hood, and angular styling cues.

The camouflage hides most of the styling details but we can see the model will have an upward sweeping beltline, roof rails, and a rakish rear window. Other highlights include a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a dual exhaust system.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen has previously said the model will be offered with an “entirely new series of efficient and powerful engines.” That’s not much to go on but rumors have suggested the crossover could have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces at least 275 hp (205 kW). The engine is expected to be connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and an optional all-wheel drive system. Later down the road, Cadillac is expected to introduce a plug-in hybrid variant.

Reports have suggested the Cadillac XT4 will be built alongside the Chevrolet Malibu at the Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas. This isn’t too surprising as the crossover is expected to ride on the C1XX platform which is related to the E2XX platform which underpins the sedan.

U Spy 2019 Cadillac CT6 With Escala Concept-Inspired Refresh 7

Posted by Michael Karkafiris in Cadillac, Cadillac CT6, Cadillac Scoops, Scoops, U Spy on 12 7th, 2017


Cadillac continues the development of the facelifted 2019 CT6 in Colorado, where our reader Brett Borgard spotted them unloading a camouflaged prototype out of a truck.

The car is still covered in camo tape and the only thing that sticks out is the new front fascia which takes inspiration from the Cadillac Escala concept. We’ll remind you that the Escala was based on the CT6 sporting a four-dour coupe-style body with a liftback and a 500-horsepower 4.2L twin-turbo V8.

Expect to see the new 2019 CT6 sporting a similar front grille and sleeker-looking headlights, features that will eventually pass on to every future Cadillac model – redesigned or new.

The company is already offering the current CT6 with its Super Cruise semi-autonomous system and the updated model is expected to add more premium features into the mix, including high-tech systems and more luxury in general.

There are some rumors talking about Cadillac finally offering a pair of high-performance variants, in the form of a CT6 V-Sport and a range-topping CT6-V. If that’s the case, then expect to see an upgraded twin-turbo V6 hiding under the bonnet or even an upgraded twin-turbo V8 engine, as seen on the Escala Concept. The plug-in hybrid version will also stay.

Expect to see the car for the first time in production form within the next 12-18 months. 

Thanks to Brett for the shots!
