    New Evidence Suggests Cadillac CT5 Will Be Introduced In 2018

    New Evidence Suggests Cadillac CT5 Will Be Introduced In 2018
    All indicates that Cadillac will reveal the CT5 in the very near future

    The Cadillac XT4 is already reaching dealers in China, but new intel suggests the luxury brand plans to introduce another all-new vehicle this year in China.

    Cadillac Society has obtained a photo of a slide from a presentation delivered to Chinese Cadillac dealers that shows some enticing information. Entitled “Cadillac Product Development Process In China”, the slide shows Cadillac’s history in China, starting with the first-generation CTS in 2004, which launched the brand in the market, followed by the SLS in 2007, second-gen SRX in 2010, XTS in 2013, the ATS-L in 2014, and the CT6 and XT5, which arrived in calendar year 2016.

    Isn't the XT4 just a re-badge of the GMC Acadia? Why would another badge engineered crossover be worth mentioning?

    You're on the wrong thread. The XT4 is much smaller than Acadia and on a new platform. And that isn't what "badge-engineering" means. The XT4 will likely be Cadillac's biggest seller, so it's worth talking about exhaustively.


    If I read it right, the CTS is not currently sold in China, so this makes sense--for China.

    It does seem odd they'd reverse the introduction dates here, but then why did they cancel the 2019 ATS sedan but not the CTS?

    My mistake. The XT5 is the Cadillac version of the Acadia and the XT4 is Cadillac's Equinox/Terrain. GM less and less needs to have (4) brands all with essentially the same models in different trim and feature packages. Maybe two brands would suffice, like Toyota/Lexus, Honda/Acura, Nissan/Infiniti. Chevrolet/Cadillac would be enough considering the market share GM now commands.

    Late 2018 in China, March 2019 in USA? With the XT4 just out, that would be a six month gap...

    Next ride, pre-pandemic: Maybe a 2021 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD
    Next ride, post-pandemic: Keep driving the Sonic!

    Is it not a tweaked version of an already world class platform? I could see that being true if it was a new platform from the ground up.

    Neither is selling well, they probably make a lot more on the CTS than an ATS (think production cost vs selling cost), as well as CTS having more upside for end of the life cycle; production/sales increase with wind-down pricing, because it is a more practical size car.

    Or One model in 2018 and one model in 2019, who says they need to be spaced exactly 12 months apart?

    CT5 is coined 2020, CT4 is coined 2021; I expect we'll see the CT5 on dealer lot next spring and the CT4 about a year later.

    Which likely means L.A. or Detroit auto show reveal for CT5. NY auto show seems too near to the SOP to reveal it there. I wonder if they've moved the XT6 reveal to the NY show, in order to give the XT4 a little more breathing room before another Cadillac SUV steals the limelight?

    How long of an influence will the Johan years have on the brand? Either way looks like some nice stuff coming. Marketing lately seems consistent and positive. A long way away from the days off poolside. If Cadillac can have a "break through" level ,modern day marketing campaign and the cars to back it up, the only thing left would be a strong product placement. seems like a simple formula

    Strong product
    Strong marketing
    ????
    = Profit

    Ct5 is probably going to be a lot like CTS when written on the trunk
