    Hope U are right.. and truthfully it makes sense for it to not be called the same thing. I actually think Cadillac using the CT5 name on a sedan is misleading since the CT6 is a sedan. I would think that the CT5 should have have been called the CT4 and the ACTUAL ATS replacement the CT2.. any coupes.. odd numbers.

    or maybe the opposite.. and the CT6 should have been the CT7 with the CTS becoming the CT5 (as is) and the ATS replacement being th CT3, then coupes would be even numbers LOL

    Agreed...they sorta screwed the pooch out the gate w/ calling the CT6 the 6...Rumor has it that there was supposed to be a 7 slotted above it. But if that were the case, the rumored 7 should've been the 9, the 6 -> 7 and like you said, Sedans odd...coupes even.

    Now they're really stuck because they already have a 4,5,and 6...so you can't really put a coupe w/ a standalone designation in-between any of them.

    I might even say 2 Sedans and one coupe/convertible and give the rest of their resources to crossovers/SUV s.

    They could always call it a cz5 or a zt5 or a cp5 or whatever. Just change the prefix. Names are not a problem. Engineering should not be too bad from a sedan to coupe, although on the CTS I think it was a bit more since they widened the track. Convertible is a whole nuther story needing additional bracing since there is no roof for structure.

    Nah...Look closely below the reverse lights, lower bumper-center, you should see two triangular shaped cutouts for the exhaust.

    The CT5 is just another plain looking car that will sit forever on a dealership lot....sitting next to a Buick that is, which also isn't selling!

    Plain it is not.

    Sit forever? Yeah in this market, could happen.
    Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.

    I agree with silverbeauty7. The thing is dull. And even worse, it doesn't look like a Cadillac.

    Which sucks, because it seems to have done everything else at a high level, from interior to drivetrain.
    Current:

    2016 Cadillac CTS4 2.0T Performance

    2006 GMC Envoy SLT 4x4

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.
