Top 3 Facts About The 2019 Cadillac CT5

It’s time for Cadillac to retire the nameplates CTS and ATS. On the heels of these two nameplates’ retirement would be the birth of the CT5 with a smaller CT4 to be added in the future.

The Cadillac CT5 has already been spotted testing and we believe it is heavily based on the Escala concept. The CT5 will be similar to the CTS in terms of size, but that’s where the similarity stops. The former will be sportier, more modern, and will have a new body style. It will borrow from the fastback layout of the Escala concept.

Exterior

The front grille of the CT5 is very wide and sports thin horizontal slats instead of the small rectangular inserts. The headlamps will have small LED spots toward the grille and bigger lights around the corner. And just like the Escala and the CT6, it would also have vertical lights on the sides.

The prototype we have seen shows a big bulge on the middle of the hood, but it’s probably because they were testing a performance model. The regular CT5 will most likely have a less aggressive hood.

On the sides, the CT5 has a coupe-style roof, sloping deck lid, and a spoiler integrated into the edge of the trunk lid. On the rear end, the bumper will be clean and simple on the regular models thought the higher models should have an aggressive diffuser and quad exhaust pipe layout.

Interior

The CT5 will have a brand-new layout and it will be sportier and more modern compared to the Escala and the CT6. There will be huge displays both for the instrument cluster and the infotainment system, and a small, clean center stack should house a few buttons and dials.

The seats are going to be comfortable in both the standard and high-performance trim levels. The higher models should get leather and Alcantara inserts. There’s ample legroom in the rear compartment. The layout would be good for a four-seater, though a five-seat layout would remain standard.

Performance

It is not yet clear what engines the CT5 would have. We’re thinking it would come packed with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that can produce 265 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This will be paired with a rear-wheel-drive system.

Other options would be the 3.6-liter V-6 rated with 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque, as well as the 3.0-liter V-6 engine that delivers 404 ponies and 400 pound-feet of torque.

The CT5 should have a base price of $46,495.
