Cadillac CT5 mid-size luxury sedan revealed, and there's turbo power everywhere

Cadillac CT5 revealed for the US

The new sedan borrows heavily from the Escala concept that wowed in 2016 at Pebble Beach, including a dramatic and upright nose, sculpted hood, vertical headlights, and starched creases along the body sides. In fact, the brand has two new additions to fill the void of the departing ATS, CTS, XTS and CT6.

"The Cadillac CT5 is meant to overwhelm all of the senses, and that's why we're using ASMR-style videos to showcase its features", said Deborah Wahl, Cadillac chief marketing officer.

Cadillac collaborated with artist Darel Carey to create a one-of-a-kind camouflage wrap for the CT5. In the videos the camouflage is slowly peeled back to trigger the ASMR sensation while revealing the first-ever CT5.

The CT5 will be built at the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in MI, where the CTS is now manufactured.

"Boring sedans are dead", said Andrew Smith, Cadillac executive director of global design. "With standard sound optimization and active noise cancellation, our goal is to deliver a world-class cabin experience with a Cadillac-exclusive curated sound library".

Cadillac says the CT5 will initially be offered with a choice of a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or 3.0-liter turbo V6, both paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, but it hasn't yet detailed their specifications. The CT5 will be sold in Luxury and Sport trim levels, with slightly different appearances and possibly different engines.

Scheduled to make its public debut at the NY motor show next month, the CT5 sports a mini-me design drawing upon the larger CT6 - which will be retired at the end of the year - and will compete with the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

We expect Cadillac to stuff the CT5 with its latest tech, including SuperCruise driver-assistance features, the latest infotainment system with a clickwheel controller, and smartphone compatibility when it goes on sale soon.
