General Motors is looking to reduce the amount of passenger cars in its product portfolio and focus more heavily on crossovers, SUVs and trucks, but that hasn’t stopped our sister site Cadillac Society from digitally rendering its vision for a Cadillac CT5-V wagon.
While GM’s current strategy makes such a product’s arrival basically impossible, it’s interesting to see how the CT5 might look if it were to morph into a wagon variant. The most interesting aspect of the rendering, in our opinion, is how it utilizes the slightly controversial notch in the CT5 sedan’s beltline and integrates it into the cargo space window. The rear required a complete makeover, as well, but takes inspiration from other Cadillac models with long ,vertically mounted taillights.
As readers of this site will know, the last time GM built a Cadillac-branded wagon was in 2014, when the Cadillac CTS SportWagon went out of production. The CTS SportWagon was introduced in 2009 for the 2010 model year and was also offered in high-performance V-Series guise. This was before Cadillac had implemented its new two-tier V-Series approach, so the CTS-V SportWagon had a 550 horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged LSA engine – a much more stout powertrain than the CT5’s twin-turbocharged 335 horsepower 3.0-liter LFW V6. Cadillac will allegedly drop a more powerful motor in the CT5 for the upcoming new CT5-V Blackwing model, but it’s not clear when it may arrive.
Again, we share this rendering with you not because it’s something Cadillac actually has in the works, but just for fun. Let us know what you think in the comments below and feel free to subscribe to GM Authority for more CT5 news, Cadillac news, and 24/7 GM news coverage.
