- Cadillac is replacing its ATS and CTS sedans with the new CT5
- It recently announced the availability of Super Cruise semi-autonomous tech on CT5
- Super Cruise functions with LiDAR, radar, and cameras along high-precision GPS
- The CT5 will go on sale in the fall of 2019, pricing hasn’t been released yet
This all-new sedan advances the brand’s legacy with its distinctive blend of design and performance, supported by Cadillac’s latest technologies, including Super Cruise, a hands-free driver assistance feature for use on freeways.
We are excited to see Cadillac demonstrate its commitment to technology by bringing Super Cruise to the CT5. This innovative feature lets drivers convert to riders, while the car operates hands-free on more than 130,000 miles of limited-access freeways in the U.S. and Canada.
Using LiDAR map data, high-precision GPS, a state-of-the-art driver attention system, and a network of camera and radar sensors, this driver attention system helps keep drivers engaged by detecting and signaling road problems. Cadillac CT5’s Super Cruise technology will be available in the calendar year 2020 on select models.
The new fastback design underscores the CT5’s commitment to a sporty, driver-focused driving experience complemented with a driver-centric interior that blends new technology and high-touch elements like natural real wood trim.
This new design profile was inspired by the stunning Escala concept vehicle. The CT5 marks a new direction for Cadillac sedan design, which leverages the natural proportional advantage of the vehicle’s rear-drive platform to communicate strong performance with its wide stance.
A 116-inch wheelbase and lengthened side glass accentuate the car’s long, low proportion and sweeping fastback profile. Body sculpting, including taut character lines, contributes to the car’s strong stance and speaks to Cadillac’s legacy of craftsmanship and technology.
Bright exterior accents and unique grilles and fascias distinguish the CT5 Luxury and Premium Luxury models, with the Sport model differentiated by darker accents and performance-inspired details, including unique grilles, fascias, rocker extensions, spoiler and standard 19-inch wheels.
Cadillac is dedicated to building the world’s most exhilarating luxury sedans, says Carlisle a Cadillac representative. Every element of the CT5 is focused on delivering an unrivaled experience, from the 10-speed transmission to Cadillac’s Super Cruise technology. The expansion of Super Cruise to CT5 reinforces our commitment to bringing the most innovative technologies to our customers.
The 2020 CT5 made its public debut at the New York International Auto Show and will be available for ordering this fall. GM’s Lansing Grand River facility will manufacture the vehicle having previously received a $211 million investment to build the next-generation Cadillac sedans. Pricing and additional information will be announced closer to the start of production.
As Super Cruise is improved before the launch of the CT5, we expect to see additional road coverage along with a smoother, more consistent experience while Super Cruise in function. The CT5 will mark a new beginning for Cadillac with an updated design language and additional technology rolled out across the brand. Cadillac excites, and we anticipate its coming innovations.
