Cadillac will release a slew of new models from mid-2018 onwards, kick-started by a compact crossover.
Initially, it was believed that the first of these new models would be an entry-level sedan to rival the Mercedes-Benz CLA. Automotive News however claims that Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen has scrapped the idea of such a car given the shrinking sedan market meaning the firm will instead dedicate its energies to larger sedans and various SUVs/crossovers.
In mid-2018, we should see a new ATS released and given Caddy’s current nomenclature, expect it to be dubbed the CT4. It should be followed by both Coupe and Convertible variants soon after. The same year, the aforementioned XT3 compact crossover will arrive as will a refreshed XT5.
Some six months later, the current Cadillac CTS will be phased out and replaced by a next-generation model, adopting the CT5 nameplate. A Coupe will then arrive some 12 months later. In the same year, the current range-topping CT6 should receive a subtle facelift and in 2020, may be offered with a diesel engine.
In 2019, we can also expect to see a new large crossover underpinned by the XT5’s chassis in long-wheelbase form. The following year, the huge Escalade could be redesigned once again and could become larger than ever.
Which of these cars are you most looking forward to?
