In late July, General Motors filed four trademarks applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The four trademark applications include Cadillac CT5, CT5, Cadillac CT6, CT6, and are filed under the USPTO’s goods and services category of “Motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, engines therefor and structural parts thereof”.
|TRADEMARK||FILING DATE||SERIAL NUMBER|
|CT5||JULY 21, 2014||86343074|
|Cadillac CT5||JULY 21, 2014||86343063|
|CT6||JULY 21, 2014||86343098|
|Cadillac CT6||JULY 21, 2014||86343083|
Although unconfirmed, there have been rumors suggesting that The General will expand Cadillac’s crossover lineup with sport-crossover variants of the ATS and CTS. As such, CT5 and CT6 could potentially be candidates to serve as nameplates for the new vehicles, although we’d personally vote ATX and CTX, respectively.
How do you think GM/Cadillac will use the names? Sound off in the comments below.
