Consistent with the new naming scheme outlined by Cadillac's incoming brand president, Johan de Nysschen, all of the trademark filings are organized into the CT or XT categories.
The company has reserved the terms CT2, CT3, CT4, CT7 and CT8, hinting at revisions for existing models and new names for future additions. The company has already confirmed that its upcoming flagship sedan will be known as the CT6, while the CT5 is also listed among the older trademark filings.
