Back in November of 2019, the Cadillac CT5 officially went on sale in China. Originally making its regional debut at the 2019 Chengdu Motor Show, the CT5 drops into the Chinese market as a replacement for the Cadillac ATS-L, and is offered in both the Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels, per Caddy’s Y-trim level strategy. Now, we’re taking a look at two recent CT5 video advertisements for the Chinese market.
The first video is the longest of the two, clocking in at one minute, 30 seconds. The video opens with a panning shot of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City before focusing on a pair of artists, including a musician and a ballet dancer. While the musician struggles to put together a song in a studio, the dancer laces up her point shoes as she gets ready to perform. Suddenly, a white Cadillac CT5 appears, burning rubber and doing donuts, and apparently providing some much-needed inspiration for the creative folks. With that, the muse has clearly spoken, and the musician tickles the keys of his piano while the dancer twirls away, lost in the dance.
The second video is quite a bit shorter, clocking in at just 30 seconds in length. Rather than offering a narrative like the other advertisement, this second ad is more focused on the features of the Cadillac CT5, highlighting things like the sedan’s LED lighting, the Bose stereo, and the high-quality seating surfaces. The mood is a bit darker and cooler, and definitely makes the luxury sedan look quite nice.
To note, the Chinese-spec 2020 Cadillac CT5 is offered exclusively with the turbocharged 2.0L LSY four-cylinder engine, which produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The GM 10-speed automatic transmission is on board for cog swaps, with both RWD and AWD are on offer to put the power down.
