    [Quote=Roadshow] 2020 Cadillac CT5 sedan to debut at New York Auto Show


    Cadillac's starting the slow social-media tease for the car today.Jake Holmes mugshot

    The new CT5, shown in its Sport trim level.

    Cadillac
    Cadillac will introduce its next model, the 2020 CT5 sedan, in early April at the New York Auto Show. The company provided our first look at the CT5 on Monday, and over the coming weeks will show off more of the car with an online video series called "Sensory Symphony."

    Any automaker introducing a sedan in this era of SUV worship seems to feel the need to justify its decision, and Cadillac President Steve Carlisle is no exception. At a presentation with journalists last week in Detroit, he said Cadillac won't give up on traditional cars because there remain many luxury shoppers who prefer them.

    "We're very much committed to sedans, just to clear the air on that. We see it very much as part of our brand DNA," Carlisle said. "When we look at who buys sedans today, they're actually SUV and crossover rejectors."

    He added that the luxury-sedan segment is still "considerable," and that in China, an important market for luxury automakers, sedan sales are still growing. The Cadillac CT5 will be shown in both Sport and Luxury trims. This one is the Premium Luxury.

    Cadillac
    Andrew Smith, Cadillac executive director for global design, had a different take on why cars like the CT5 still have a future: "I'd say boring sedans are dead, I think awesome sedans are going to be around for a while."

    The Cadillac CT5 uses what Smith describes as "a new generation of aesthetic language for Cadillac." As on previous "Art & Science" cars, the CT5 is defined by taut lines, strong proportions and LED lights, but the bodywork is simpler and not quite so jagged as some older Cadillac cars. It's a very different look than today's ATS and CTS sedans, but still there are recognizable Cadillac cues.

    A low hood and flat nose give way to a wide grille, with LED strips running from the headlamps and down into separate light pipes in the lower fascia. The roofline curves starkly behind the B-pillar, plunging toward the trunk. There's a piece of plastic trim in the C-pillar that mimics the look of a quarter-window; it's embossed with a Cadillac script logo. Smith said designers paid extra attention to the rear of the CT5, ensuring it didn't look just the same as other Cadillac sedans. High-quality wood trim, as well as this electric shifter and rotary infotainment controller, feature in the car's cabin.

    Cadillac
    Beneath the surface, the CT5 is built on a version of General Motors' well-known Alpha platform, versions of which have also been used for ATS and CTS, as well as the Chevrolet Camaro. Engine choices comprise a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, both paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Both rear- and all-wheel-drive variants will be offered.

      That’s plain ugly! That sport model looks about as sporty as a hearse. We’ve got a 2014 CTS coupe and like it but their new designs not so much.
      There is a madness to my method!

              New Cadillac CT5 Sedan

              Sedan?? More like a crossover. Where's the the CT6 with the "detuned" Blackwing at 500 HP all weather drive.

                That pic was from the dealership I bought it used with only 5K I still have it. The Alpha platform is excellent. They handle fantastic. This particular one is the performance model with upgraded brakes ,wider rear end and extra cooling etc. And of course don't forget the interior colors John. I think your leaning on this color combo for your ME purchase?

                  That is one beautiful Morello Red Cadillac interior. Looks a lot like Spice Red to me, and hopefully SR continues. Here is one more picture I found of your car’s interior.

                      I love the CTS Coupe. Here's my CTS-V Coupe. They surely are heading in the wrong direction with the styling. Cadillac has been all over the place as far as trying to figure out where they are going. Someone needs to get a grip.

                        Car I traded in to become a Vette owner for the first time in my life. I love my Corvette but I miss this car a lot...

                          I can see why. That is one exciting previous car you had.
