    Re: Cadillac CT5 Sedan Likely Won't Spawn Wagon Or Coupe Variants

    I see quite a few BMW/Benz coupes around here (eastern LI, NY). Caddy needs one, I’d say.
    Current ride: 2015 Chevy Sonic 1.8L 5sp manual sedan
    Previous ride: 1998 Subaru Legacy Wagon AWD 2.2L 5sp manual
    Next ride: Maybe a 2020 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD

    Re: Cadillac CT5 Sedan Likely Won't Spawn Wagon Or Coupe Variants

    Another bold move from Cadillac! When the going gets tough, the tough get going. In GM and Cadillac's case, "going" means to just go away.

    Not surprising. The ATS coupe didn't sell. Besides my own, I really don't think I've seen more than three others. And we know that GM will quickly give up rather than fight on. I grew to prefer the more conservative ATS over the CTS Coupe, which I also owned. I think conservative designs just age better. But with the success of the CTS Coupe, why would they not go back in that direction?

    If you're going to pretend to compete with M-B, Audi, and BMW, you have to offer competing models. (Seems rather obvious, doesn't it?) Yet, no coupe, no convertible.

    Maybe they'll make the same mistake as with the ATS Coupe. Launch it two years late with next-to-no publicity. Sales will be poor and it never occurs to them that it is an utter failure of their launch plan and marketing.

    Maybe it's semantics...there will not be a "CT5" coupe because it will be named something else.
    I wish they all could be California squirrels!

    The person being interviewed didn't really say that there wouldn't be a coupe. But the unnamed sources were more definitive.

    I meant CT6. This is to show you how much even I know and I do like GM and had many GM cars before. And being at a hotel, you are bound to see a lot more nicer cars in one location. I have seen almost none in Oakville (besides the Escalades) and certainly quite none in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, not even older ones. I do see quite a few CTSs in the GTA though.

    I checked out that hotel, it seems it is around 250$/night. Trust me, a Cruze driver would probably drive down the street to a Motel 6.

    CTS coupes are everywhere around here. If they made it bold enough people would buy it. I believe the ATS coupe doesn't sell because of a couple reasons, A) it's not bold enough and B) it's the forgotten red headed step child!

    Probably wouldn't want to call that a CT5 coupe since it looks nothing like one.

    How does anyone know this is not the CT4 coupe. Maybe that's why its taking longer to show the CT4. They are going to have both. It also could be the CT5 coupe seeing how it has that same c-pillar that I think looks fine in the sedan but does flow better on the coupe drawing.

    I must admit, after seeing that patent drawing last year, I was hoping for a coupe.

    A Cadillac coupe should introduce the next major styling direction. And be called Eldorado.

    They need a coupe for image. Station Wagons are like the Ute, everyone thinks its cool, but no one will actually buy it.

    We saw a CT6, an XT5 and an Escalade... Yeah.. The Hotel is not cheap.. Check it out, very nice place to get away for a few days. They do have a few rooms on the left of the front desk that are not updated to my tastes and I immediately asked to stay in one of the rooms I usually stay. They accommodated quickly.
