The first-generation Cadillac CT5 launched in late 2019 as a 2020 model year vehicle. The first-generation CT5 serves as a direct replacement for the Cadillac ATS Sedan (for global markets except for China) and for the ATS-L Sedan (in China). It also indirectly replaces the Cadillac CTS.
The CT5 name is the result of Cadillac’s new naming scheme, wherein the brand labels cars like sedans, coupes, and wagons with the CT moniker, followed by a number designating its “sequence” in the lineup. Similarly, Cadillac crossovers and SUVS will be named XT followed by a number identifying its sequence in the vehicle hierarchy.
The vehicle rides on the Alpha 2 platform, an updated version of the first-generation Alpha platform that underpinned the Cadillac ATS and CTS, as well as the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro. Only one body style – a four-door sedan – is available. Despite the first-gen CT5 having a fastback-like profile, the vehicle is a traditional sedan with a regular trunklid.
The vehicle is available with two three gasoline engines. One diesel engine is expected for select markets.
