    2020 Cadillac CT5

    2020 Cadillac CT5 finally appears, hopes you think it's a Charger
    Autoblog.com
    By:Joel Stocksdale



    Last summer, Cadillac announced that it will be dropping the ATS, CTS and XTS for one sedan, presumably called CT5 to fit the naming scheme set by the CT6 and XT5. Now we get our very first look at the upcoming sedan thanks to these spy shots.

    The first thing that jumps out is the big hood scoop. We sincerely doubt that scoop will make it to production, and when combined with the scalloped shapes on the car's flanks, we and the spy photographer feel they're probably there to dupe people into thinking it's a weird Dodge Charger. The disguise isn't working, but the scoop surprisingly looks pretty good. Maybe Cadillac should consider putting one on an inevitable V model.

    We actually kind of wish the scoop would make it to production.

    Moving past the fake bodywork, we can see that this CT5 takes inspiration from the Cadillac Escala concept. It has the long, almost fastback cabin and extra rear quarter window of that concept. The headlights are slim horizontal units, too, though they still sweep back a bit to bridge the gap between current models and the Escala. We also see that there's a decent amount of distance between the front axle and the base of the A-pillar, so we suspect that the sedan will retain rear-drive and optional all-wheel-drive drivetrains.

    Hard to believe the car shown here would be the smallest/cheapest Cadillac Sedan offered, so does Cadillac get an Epsilon Car (to go with the XT4), a Delta Car, or something completely different?

    Probably Alpha, considering all the GM employees with A2SL/A2LL in their LinkedIn bios.

    Yeah, could be. If that's the ATS+CTS = CT5.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the sub-ATS goes through, being on aFWD architecture.

    Good find!

    Uh, wouldn't the eventual ATS replacement (CT3 or CT4) fulfill the role of being a true 3 Series/A4/C-Class competitor?

    Unless the next CT6 is going to shrink slightly to take up the CTS's mantle as a 5 Series/A6/E-Class competitor, I can't imagine any CTS-replacement getting any smaller.

    Probably in an attempt to not harm their sales further until the replacement arrives, no?
