Selection Of New Cadillac Sedans and Crossovers Arriving After Mid-2018

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?


  • Craig

    Is there still a V8 on its way to the CT6?

    • Kash

      I don’t see why they wouldn’t still add one, but it’s taking so much time because Caddy is developing for the CT6 by themselves instead of using something like a detuned Z06 or tweaked Stingray engine.

  • chippers

    I couldn’t care less about SUVs or crossovers (Cadillac or otherwise) but will be interested to see what they replace the ATS and CTS with.

    • CarCzarDesigner

      I doubt Cadillac will do anything dramatic other than bring forward a slightly improved ATS+CTS sedan with mild styling changes.

  • Anthony Bugge

    I thought GM said large sedans are over that’s why Holden have closed up shop.

  • TheBelltower

    So is the CT6 going to be as good as it gets for Cadillac? I sure hope not. It would be nice if at least one of the concept car designs made it to production

  • Tiago

    Cadillac needs a V12 for the supercar that will come in the future, still I insist more DIESEL engines and manual transmission !!!!

  • Bigbusiness23

    I hate the new names personally the cars are doing good im just not a fan of the new names ct5 and ct6 so will there be a ct5-v jus wonderin?

    • Enter Ranting

      It’ll be interesting to see the impact the Lincoln Continental has on the naming of cars in the luxury segment.

  • Bob White

    A much lighter CT5 coupe offered with Corvette powertrain and a choice of 7 speed man. and 10 speed auto would do it for me. Just make it sexy and gorgeous.

    • antbee

      Like the first one, the CTS-V Coupe! I saw a non-V coupe today, and I couldn’t help staring.

  • smartacus

    i hope they offer the superlative 34 speaker BOSE system across the lineup.

    If the new ATS takes on the design language of the Escala concept then sign me up!
