New 2020 Cadillac CT5 Set To Replace CTS, Will Offer Two Engines

The New York Auto Show is still a month away, but Cadillac couldn’t wait. The automaker unveiled the brand-new 2020 CT5 this morning.


The new 2020 Cadillac CT5 will replace the CTS in Cadillac’s slim luxury sedan lineup. A few months ago we would have thought this new CT5 would be alone, but it appears the CT6 flagship sedan will be sticking around for a while.

Nobody really knows what’s happening with the XTS and unless we’re talking about an airport limo service company, nobody really cares. And so with the new CT5 and CT6, Cadillac will have a mid-size and full-size luxury sedan to offer the market next year.

Combined with the new Cadillac XT6 joining the XT4 and XT5 luxury SUV models, the new CT5 will give Cadillac a fresh, mostly new lineup of premium vehicles. That’s a must for any luxury automaker.

If we’re spending some time talking about the current state of affairs at Cadillac and not the brand-new CT5, that’s simply because Cadillac didn’t give us too much to go on concerning its latest luxury sedan.

The press release talked more about the marketing campaign leading up to the New York Auto Show unveil than the actual 2020 Cadillac CT5 itself.

We do know there will be two engines starting with a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. An optional 3.0-liter twin-turbo will be available as well. The CT5 will be built on Cadillac’s Alpha architecture which can accommodate both RWD and AWD layouts and both available engines will be paired with a 10-speed automatic gearbox.


How We Feel About the 2020 Cadillac CT5

The Cadillac CTS is the car that brought Cadillac back to life back in 2003. It introduced Cadillac’s new blocky, sporty design language, an evolution of which is still used today and it was considered one of the first non-German luxury cars to actually compete with the German Big Three.

We can understand Cadillac for wanting to focus on sport utility vehicles and we certainly are fans of the new Cadillac XT4, but the company can’t forget the impact of that first CTS. The 2020 Cadillac CT5, if done right, will bring some of the luster that faded away as the CTS got bigger.

The new CT5 won’t be the brand’s best-selling vehicle, but it may very well be it’s most important as it transitions into the next decade.
