    How about merging the other threads with this one instead of just locking them.

    The small touches that Caddy have been doing to the exterior of the sport models across the board have been quite striking.

    Re: Cadillac Introduces First-Ever CT5

    Im confused about the sizing - I thought this was essentially just a reskin of the CTS? But I've seen articles saying it competes against the 3-series, C-class, etc.?

    Judging by other articles it seems this will be close to Mercedes E class in size but the price will be more closer to C class

    I mentioned that as well in one of the closed threads. It’s info that’s probably put out there by Cadillac. My guess is that it has to do with the price point. Look at it as a G2 successor.

    It's the PRICE of those while being the size class above. Back to the original CTS formula that made it successful. The WB is 1" shy of the 5 series. This wont be a "small" car.

    I hope the head restraints can be adjusted backward.

    At least the seat cushions are flatter, but the side bolsters will keep wide (fat) people from buying it. And the rear hip room. The back seat is for children or the short and skinny only.

    Black headliner, black carpet, black dash, and black wheel on every car! Don't they know some people park outside sometimes? It will look and feel like an oven even on a cloudy day.
    It's called tint and a front window shade. I've had a tan steering wheel. It's disgusting looking in no time and not work the "look".


    As for all the dimensions, have they been release somewhere and I haven't seen it? Plus, fat people dont buy cars anymore. That's why CUVs are so popular. Dont have to move your legs as much to get in and out.

    Have the released pricing yet? It will be interesting to see how the price/value shakes out. They could earn some good will if they price the 3.0TT reasonably.

    Why are they calling this a compact? It's 1.6 in shorter than a CTS, .8 in shorter than a 5-Series, and anywhere between 1.5-2in wider than both. Auto media is all messed up on this one. It's essentially a replacement for the CTS.

    North Carolina allows 35% on cars. That's pretty respectable honestly.

    Cause it'll definitely sell on a Chevrolet or Buick lot.

    Buick's new minivan for China.
    Screens all over the interior is not a privilege anymore in 2019.
    If Cadillac does not not have it now, it does not mean they can't do it. This is for the germancarfanboys





    Now wait for the Escalade
