Cadillac's long-awaited product renaissance will finally begin this fall with the Cadillac XT4.
After the compact crossover, expect former Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen's plans of a new or redesigned vehicle coming every six months on average through 2021 to remain in place, if not be accelerated, under new boss Steve Carlisle. That could include a new midengine sports car for the brand in addition to previously announced plans of repositioning its lineup to three cars, three crossovers and the next-generation Escalade.
CT4: A rear-wheel-drive car smaller than the ATS — think BMW 2-series competitor — is expected in 2020. However, given Cadillac's leadership change and the need for crossovers, it wouldn't be surprising if those plans are pushed back or switched with another more lucrative product.
ATS/CT5: Once-touted as a BMW fighter and "the new soul of Cadillac," the ATS is not long for this world. The compact sedan is being discontinued after the 2018 model year, followed by the coupe variant a year later.It will be the first of three Cadillac cars to be replaced with two new nameplates. The ATS and CTS replacement is expected to be called the CT5.
CTS/CT5: Cadillac's midsize CTS is the second sedan expected to be cut from its lineup in exchange for the CT5 by 2020. Spy photos suggest the car's design will be heavily inspired by Cadillac's acclaimed Escala concept that was introduced in August 2016.
