Cadillac plans for a waterfall of new product in the next few years, and the slew of new vehicles will include two brand-new sedans: the CT5 and either a CT4 or CT3. We’ll likely see the 2020 Cadillac CT5 first, judging by the multiple rounds of spy shots making their way to the internet.
Indeed, the Cadillac CT5 was spied again during snowy cold-weather testing, and the influence from the Escala concept is front and center. The overall shape of Cadillac’s new sedan features a sloping fastback profile. In fact, we may even see the CT5 adopt a liftback style like the Escala as well.
At the front, squinty headlights will more than likely take a more horizontal approach, also akin to the Escala. We’re not sure why this tester consistently boasts a fake hood scoop, but it could indicate there’s a more powerful engine under the hood—perhaps Cadillac’s forthcoming 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine.
The rear is more of mystery, and camouflage artists have done their best to make it look like a Kia Stinger or Dodge Charger with a fake headlight piece stretching across the rear. The real taillights will also likely dart inward like the Escala concept for a new take on the brand’s vertical strip design.
A Cadillac CT5 debut is likely a year away as we know Cadillac will show the 2019 Cadillac XT4 crossover this year as its sole new product. We should see more Cadillacs start to fill out the brand’s lineup next year with a new vehicle launch every six months into early next decade.
