    In a surprise announcement mid-March, Cadillac revealed the all-new, 2020 CT5 sedan that will relaunch the brand into the popular and lucrative D-segment to battle the likes of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW 3 Series. At the time, Caddy provided studio shots of the new CT5, making it somewhat difficult to understand the new vehicle’s design. Luckily, we just got exclusive new photos of the new Cadillac CT5 on the open road, and the pictures give us a new sense of the exterior styling and intricacies in the surface development.
    The new Cadillac CT5 rides on an evolved version of the award-winning Alpha RWD/AWD architecture. Cadillac did not say it outright in its announcement, but the CT5 is the indirect replacement to the ATS and CTS. It will compete in the D-segment against the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

    Cadillac previously told us that the “CT5 showcases Cadillac’s unique expertise in crafting American performance sedans, with details designed to elevate every drive.” Note that for what it’s worth.

    When you see it in the wild the C-pillar really isn't a big issue. I would say it's a non issue.

    Those angles makes it look smaller than the CTS. Nearly identical to the 2G CTS in stance.

    The CT5 is fine, but it's not going to move the needle for Cadillac unfortunately. Will be lucky to sell any better than the current CTS.

    And no all-electric powertrain available? Ugh...

    I think it looks really good even in a color like white that tends to not do well on certain things. That little chrome spear though is not that obnoxious but still could have been done without.

    We all voted and said it was the worst thing since they invented the starter. The voting was unanimous, Cadillac let America down, now everyone was going to buy an Accord and a Hyundai genesis

    I'm thinking it will have the same WB as the outgoing CTS but overall shorter due to the smaller rear overhang.

    If they make the front emblem any bigger, the car will overheat.

    If the CT5 replaces both the CTS and the ATS, what about the CT4? A CLA FWD type layout?

    It could be a bottom breather.

    Re: Here Are The Very First “In The Wild” Pictures Of The Cadillac CT5

    I have not seen any Cadillac literature claiming that the CT5 replaces two models. There might be pricing adjustments, but that does not mean its a replacement for ATS, and even if it were, I do not see howCT4 comes below Malibu pricing, therefore there will be CT4 and CT5 pricing overlap. Most likely scenario is CT6 will drop lower priced models since XTS is no more, there is no need for 3 sedans in the $45 to $70 price range, therefore, most likely this CT5 stays where CTS is pricewise and the CT4 stays between $29 to$55 before the V series of course. CT6 will probably go from $66 to north of $100, then watch Cadillac load up the technology in its sedans.

    It's okay I guess, still looks generic. I can't help but feel this is a missed opportunity for Cadillac.


    It's really the front and rear lights which show no emotion whatsoever, which really let me down. I guess we'll be stuck with this design language for a few years. The proportions are not bad, though.

    There's not one thing about the exterior design that's bold, exciting, high-end, or sexy. I think this is the worst design that Cadillac has introduced in the last decade.
