The first-ever Cadillac CT5 – a look into the brand’s future 

The CT5 charts a new direction for Cadillac and is the epitome of luxury in the modern age. The all-new CT5 sport sedan advances the brand’s award-winning legacy with a distinctive fusion of design, performance and comfort, supported by Cadillac’s latest technologies. The CT5 model range includes Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport, with a Platinum package available on Premium Luxury and Sport models allowing customers to tailor the car to their style preferences with unique design and trim.

Advanced built-in technology and connectivity in the new CT5 offers drivers a world-leading in-vehicle experience. This is expressed in everything from vehicle controls that conform to the driver’s driving style to the latest, more personal Cadillac user experience, providing more intuitive ways to interface with the Cadillac Infotainment System – including phone pairing via Near Field Communication and a new rotary controller.

Building on the strengths of the superb RWD architecture that underpins Cadillac’s award-winning rear-wheel-drive sedans, the first-ever CT5 is designed to deliver an exhilarating driving experience while maintaining the brand’s signature blend of performance, comfort and refinement. 

CT5 is powered by a 2.0L Twin-Scroll Turbo engine and 10-speed automatic transmission with Electronic Precision Shift. Cadillac’s powerful 3.0L Twin Turbo V-6 is available, rated at an estimated 335 hp (250 kw) and 400 lb-ft of torque (542 Nm). Low-inertia turbochargers and a manifold-integrated liquid-to-air intercooling system help the engine produce exceptional power with virtually no lag and sustain it across most of the rpm band. Like the 2.0L Turbo, it is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission with Electronic Precision Shift.

The new Cadillac XT6, complementing the 2020 SUV family line up 

Cadillac is also turning heads at the prestigious motor show with its all-new XT6 which completes its 2020 luxurious SUV line-up. The XT6 joins the revamped XT5, XT4 and the Cadillac Escalade, offering Middle East customers even more options when picking their next Cadillac.

Created to make the most of passengers’ time on the road, the new Cadillac XT6 three-row crossover centers on a luxurious, adaptable and connected cabin, complemented with responsive handling and a comprehensive suite of standard and available safety technologies. Every inch of the XT6 has been carefully considered and developed to offer customers a refined and comfortable place to connect and enjoy the ride. The new range includes Premium Luxury and Sport models, giving customers the option for more customized looks with unique exteriors and interiors to match.

The revamped 2020 Cadillac XT5 comes equipped with a new turbocharged engine, enhanced technologies and revised design cues that coalesce in distinctive trims to offer customers greater choice in matching this luxury crossover to their driving requirements. The 2020 Cadillac XT5 raises the bar, delivering an exhilarating driving experience paired with the sense of solidity and functionality of an SUV. The XT5 range starts with the well-equipped Luxury model, followed by the Premium Luxury and Sport models offering unique takes on Cadillac design and driving dynamics.

The brand’s first-ever compact SUV architecture, the XT4 is giving visitors to the show the chance to see first-hand how its new 2.0L Turbo engine and advanced technology, delivers expressive design, confident performance and spacious accommodations.

Raising the bar with its bold design, powerful capability and luxurious accommodations at the show is the Cadillac Escalade – the first Cadillac full-size SUV. The Escalade is available in standard and extended-length Escalade ESV models, with the latter featuring a 356 mm longer wheelbase and approximately 518 mm greater overall length. The increased length enhances space for third-row passengers and more than doubles the cargo space behind them. The 2019 Escalade is offered in Premium Luxury and Platinum trims.
