Check Out The Latest Spy Shots Of The 2020 Cadillac CT5

We just got our hands on another set of spy shots of the 2020 Cadillac CT5, and it looks like things are progressing nicely for the automaker’s upcoming midsize sedan.

Last summer, Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen confirmed that the automaker would be killing some of its sedans and replacing them with the new CT5. Models like the ATS, CTS and XTS would come to an end, paving the way forward for a new midsize offering.

There’s not much to go off from the pictures, as the vehicle is heavily disguised. According to our photographers, it is smaller than a BMW 5-Series, but larger than a 3-Series. The size of the sedan makes sense for Cadillac’s new lineup. The CT6, which is similarly sized to a 7-Series, will soldier on and the CT5 will become the brand’s way of trying to kill two birds with one stone.

The front of the sedan has some design cues that the vehicle shares with the Escala Concept from 2016. From the little that we can see, it looks like the CT5 has slim headlights that are a large departure from the current units on the CTS, ATS and CT6. The elongated hood has a prominent bulge with what appears to be a functional air scoop, while vertical daytime running lights sit on the bottom part of the front fascia.

Looking at the profile reveals a fastback-like roof, similar to the Kia Stinger or the Porsche Panamera. The taillight design at the back is noticeably interesting, as it looks like a strip of LED lights will connect the two taillight units at the rear. Two rectangular exhaust outlets are poking through the camouflage.

With its wide, hunkered-down loo, and the prominent hood bulge, it looks like Cadillac could be testing a high-performance variant of the CT5. While the base engine in the sedan is expected to be a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder motor, the V model should have a more potent powertrain. Rear-wheel drive will be standard on the sedan, while all-wheel drive will be available as an option.

While the majority of Cadillac’s sedan lineup will disappear, if the automaker delivers a sedan that looks anything like the Escala Concept and is priced like a 3-Series, it should be a hit.
