The 2020 Cadillac CT5 finally showed off earlier this month ahead of a proper debut at the 2019 New York International Auto Show, though we were only treated to two views. One was the Premium Luxury trim, while the other was the Sport trim. Only silver and a dark burgundy hue were shown.
Now, we know what the 2020 Cadillac CT5 will potentially look like in a wide array of colors. The CT5 Forum has published photos of the sedan in several other colors, ranging from staple blacks and grays to blues, reds, and even green. What the colors show is how well the CT5’s new style translates to different colors.
While the sedan looks somewhat understated in its silver and dark red colors shown in official photos, the photoshops of the red, blue, and green hues really accentuate the car’s lines. The more vibrant colors cast the CT5 in more of a sporting light, while the bronze, pearl white, slate blue, and a flat black underscore more luxurious undertones. We don’t know what colors Cadillac plans to offer for the sedan, but hopefully, some of these more colorful choices make their way to production.
As for the CT5 itself, it replaces both the ATS and CTS sedans. It straddles segments somewhat to directly take on the compact sedan segment, or D-segment, which includes cars like the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and others. We know the car will feature either a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6. It’s all but certain that rear-wheel drive will be standard, while all-wheel drive will be optional.
Following the CT5, we’ll see the smaller CT4 make its debut later this year. The CT4 will place Cadillac in the sub-compact sedan segment to rival cars like the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and CLA-Class or Audi A3.
