Cadillac chief executive Johan de Nysschen has outlined the company’s updated future product plans which include a host of significant model refreshes and a range of brand new models.
In the comments section of an article from The Detroit Bureau, the executive said that the much talked-about range-topping sedan, known as the CT8, has been ‘revised’ and will no longer be a sedan, perhaps suggesting that it will instead take the form of a luxurious SUV. Alternatively, there’s a chance he is hinting that a flagship four-door coupe is being favored.
Additionally, de Nysschen says that contrary to speculation, the Cadillac XTS won’t be axed and that a major refresh is in fact on the cards. While we don’t know when this updated model will arrive, a name change is possible as are a host of mechanical and visual modifications and improvements.
Elsewhere, it has been confirmed that the American marque will introduce what de Nysschen refers to as new Lux 2 and Lux 3 sedan entries. One of these models could take the form of an entry-level sedan slotting below the ATS and rivalling the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLA and BMW 1/2-Series.
As expected, Cadillac is also moving forward with its plans to introduce a large crossover sitting below the gargantuan Escalade as well as a compact crossover beneath the XT5. A significant update will also come to the CT6 range later in the model’s life cycle.
