Meet the 2020 Cadillac CT5, A Sporty New Luxury Sedan
Caddy lovers, rejoice.
The American automaker’s newest Caddy will be available in either Luxury or Sport trims, each with different lines and drive feel.
A 2.0-liter, turbocharged in-line four comes stock, but a heftier 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 will be available as an option.
Depending on which one is under the hood, the CT5 will receive one of two new rear-mounted badges indicating output.
Motor Trend has further details:
The back end will sport a new badge that says 350T, meaning the 275-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine will deliver approximately 350 newton meters (Nm) of torque (295 lb-ft).
The 3.0-liter generates about 404 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, which would require a torque-figure badge that rounds up to say 550T. The “T” denotes turbocharged.
Both engines will be mated a 10-speed automatic transmission that feeds power to the rear wheels. An all-wheel version will also be offered.
The interior is significantly nicer than the outgoing model, with a premium wood accents in the dash and doors, Cadillac’s next-gen CUE interface, Bose Performance Series speakers, and what looks like a slick rotary controller.
Before the CT5 is officially unveiled at the New York Auto Show in April, Cadillac is releasing a series of admittedly gimmicky teasers designed to prompt a physical reaction from viewers via “autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR).”

Zoe Kravitz would definitely approve.
