The Cadillac CT5 is Coming in 2020, ATS Renamed CT4

More info regarding the future of the Cadillac CTS and ATS has emerged. 

We’ve slowly but surely been piecing together information about the next-gen CTS and ATS using information discovered on LinkedIn. 

According to Richard Nielson, a Digital Production Sculptor at GM, the CTS will officially be replaced by the CT5 in model year 2020, which is on par with what we’re expecting.

More interesting, however, is the confirmation that the ATS will live to see another generation despite threats made by Cadillac executives earlier this year. Xun Ouyang is a Seat Design Release Engineer based out of GM’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center, according to his LinkedIn profile, part of his current work at PATAC involves design work for the next-generation ATS-L, which he denotes as CT4. 

Work On PATAC homeroom global GEM Car C and Brazil triplets projects. Also involve GM luxury vehicle programs like Cadillac ATS Land NG ATS-L(CT4). SUV platform like NG Chevy Equinox , Chevy Trax, Buick Encore.

It’s unclear if the CT4 will arrive before or after the CT5, but this is the first time we’ve seen the CT4 name officially mentioned by anyone at General Motors.
