One of the most beloved Cadillac vehicles of the modern era is the Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon and, especially so, the high-performance Cadillac CTS-V Wagon. These models helped Cadillac and its V-Series performance sub-brand build up the significant enthusiast following it enjoys today, but despite this, neither generated a massive amount of sales for the company.
For that reason, the third-generation Cadillac CTS and CTS-V were not offered with a long roof body style and neither are the new Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 models. That doesn’t mean the automaker hasn’t considered offering a new wagon, however.
In a recent interview with Autoline After Hours, Cadillac chief engineer Brandon Vivian said he and his colleagues have thought about offering a Cadillac CT5 wagon and will continue to look at the possibility of offering different model variants of the CT5.
“So, I will tell you I’ve been looking at that many, many, many times,” Vivian said when asked if there is a business case for a CT5 wagon. “We continue to look for opportunities to make money and I will continue to do that.”
Vivian went on to explain that demand from V-Series owners would be an important factor in the decision, as these are the same customers who hold an affinity for the CTS Sport Wagon and CTS-V Sport Wagon.
“So nothing to announce right now but certainly when you see the enthusiasm of our customers and our V-Club members, there is an absolute fanaticism around the V wagons and wagons in general and you know, because of that, we continue to study a future variant.”
Last year, we put together a rendering of what a potential Cadillac CT5 wagon may look like. Our rendering retained the CT5’s notched rear window and also integrated a pair of tall, vertical LED taillights, similar to the lights on the 2021 Cadillac Escalade.
So while Cadillac has no plans to roll out a CT5 wagon right now, the automaker is actively studying different CT5 model variants to potentially pull in more buyers.
