2020 Cadillac CT5 arrives as replacement for CTS Sedan
A few weeks before, Cadillac had shown off the exterior design of the CT5 sedan, which was to debut as a replacement for the CTS sedan. And now, they have revealed more technical details about the CT5.
Dropping the well-established CTS name, the Cadillac CT5 is intended to be the little brother to the full-size Cadillac CT6 sedan. The design language is classic Cadillac-ish but it hasn’t borrowed many cues from its bigger brother. The front design is a lot sleeker than the CT6 with narrow headlamps. The grill is narrower too. From the sides, the CT5 is peculiar due to the window line that extends way into the C-pillar. The rear sports a fastback look, although there is a regular boot lid rather than a big tailgate.
The CT5 is loaded with tech such as Adaptive Remote Start which lets the driver set his climate control temperature, seat ventilation/heating and steering wheel heating remotely. The semi-autonomous driving system from Cadillac is also included.
On the safety front, Forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, automatic emergency braking, and reflective LED windshield collision alert are offered as standard and adaptive cruise control, enhanced automatic emergency braking, follow distance indicator, rear camera mirror, front park assist, surround-view camera, head-up display, lane keep assist, rear pedestrian alert, automatic parking assist, reverse automatic braking and automatic high beams are all offered with the top grades.
Powering the Cadillac CT5 is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 237 hp and 350 Nm. A more powerful 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 is also offered with 335 hp and 542 Nm of torque. Both these engines get hooked up to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. Buyers can choose between standard rear-wheel-drive or optional all-wheel-drive.
Expect the new model to debut in the UAE and GCC by early 2020.
