New York LIVE: 2020 Cadillac CT5

by Justin King

Super Cruise won't be arriving for the CT5 until next year.

General Motors has brought the new CT5 to New York for its first public appearance.

Serving as a successor to the CTS, the all-new compact sedan features a fastback profile with a long 116-inch wheelbase. The car adopts Cadillac's latest design language including a short shield grille and angular headlights.

Buyers will be able to choose from Luxury or Sport models, each with a unique design flavor. The Premium Luxury and Sport variants are available with a Platinum Package, adding a Sedona/Jet Black color theme and Opus semi-aniline leather seating with 18-way adjustable massage front seats and carbon-fiber trim.

The CT5 is powered by either a 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbo engine or a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 with 335 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission comes standard on both, while all-wheel drive is available on all models.

The sedan benefits from GM's latest safety and assistance technologies, though Super Cruise will not be available until sometime next year.

The CT5 will be built at GM's Lansing Grand River assembly plant with orders beginning this fall.
