It's all but confirmed that a V version of the new Cadillac CT5 sedan is in the cards. During a media presentation, Cadillac product marketing director Jason Sledziewski alluded to the idea that a high-performance variant of the new sedan is forthcoming. He also said that sedans are an important part of Cadillac's business because they allow it to continue building a reputation for performance-oriented vehicles like the outgoing ATS-V and CTS-V.

Cadillac's V lineup is lacking in terms of product these days: the ATS-V and CTS-V ended production, and the V-8–powered CT6-V, which was originally planned as a V-Sport model, doesn't seem to have gotten the full performance treatment like its forebears.

While Cadillac said that it isn't ready to talk about the potential CT5-V's engine, the company's Blackwing twin-turbo 4.2-liter V-8, which is already in the CT6-V, seems like the most logical choice. In the CT6-V, it makes 550 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, which would blow vehicles like the 444-hp BMW M3 and the 503-hp Mercedes-AMG C63 S out of the water. It's also possible the CT5-V could use an upgraded version of the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that's already offered in the standard CT5; it makes just 335 horsepower in the CT5, but this same engine produces 404 horsepower in the CT6, so it's possible that Cadillac could tune it for a high-performance application. We can assume that a CT5-V would also benefit from a stiffer suspension setup, upgraded brakes, and extra visual aggression to set it apart.

We look forward to hearing more from Cadillac about the CT5-V when the company is ready to officially acknowledge its existence in the near future.

My God GM fucked up the C pillar on that car. How could they let an otherwise decent looking car turn into such a mess from the side view.

Once you see it it destroys the entire car. :puke:

GMs entire design team for all brands needs to lay off the drugs lately geezus there are some god awful 2019/2020 designs.

WTF is that? The rear doors have 2 pieces of glass I get it nearly all sedans do but that rear piece looks way out of place and IIRC that piece on the roof pillar isnt a window at all its just a giant goofy shaped piece of trim.

I cant look at the side profile of this car without cringing.

Looks like its trying to be a Nissan Maxima or a Toyota Camry with that goofy rear pillar design. Sadly the Nissan and Toyota look way better than that disaster!! 2020-cadillac-ct5-205-1555184778.jpeg

What I dont get is why would you even attempt to use a styling cue or design from appliance like cars of the damn Camry and Maxima on a freaking Cadillac thats supposed to be a luxury car?


Poor designs like that are EXACTLY why Cadillac cant shake their "Old Man Brand" stigma!

I mean lets be honest Genesis G70 is a better looking sedan than that!

Yes Im saying Hyundai has a better looking sedan than Cadillac.:chair:

:io:

I like the side and rear view but the grille just looks odd to me. I’m sure in 5 years I’ll see one on the road and think it looks great :rofl:


Usually what happens.

what cadillac does need to do is calm their tits with new names.

one of my older bosses is looking at ct6s & cts's and keeps getting them completely confused and has 0 fucking idea what's going on because he can't keep them straight

I mean it'd be fine if they stuck with it, but in 2018 there was a cts and a ct6, throw in any sort of hard hearing or speech impediment and it's all fucked
