CT4: The subcompact sedan is expected to arrive in dealerships early next year, followed by two V-series performance variants. The entry-level version of the rear-wheel-drive sedan — based on the Alpha platform that debuted on the short-lived ATS in 2012 — will be powered by a 2.7-liter turbo engine with a unique three-step sliding camshaft and Cadillac-estimated ratings of 320 hp and 369 pound-feet of torque.
CT5: The compact sedan will begin arriving in dealerships in the fall, followed by V-series variants. A 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbo engine is standard. Cadillac's 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 — rated at 355 hp and 400 pound-feet of torque — is available on Premium Luxury and Sport models and standard on the entry-level V-series model.
CT6: GM's negotiations with the UAW are expected to assist in determining the fate of the large sedan, which was previously expected to drive off into the sunset for the U.S. Executives, including GM President Mark Reuss and Cadillac chief Steve Carlisle, have said since January that the company is assessing options to keep the car domestically. Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly, which makes the vehicle, is scheduled to end production, and potentially close, in January. If it remains open, the CT6 is expected to continue, but a closure would reduce GM's options for the car. A freshening last year and the addition of a 2019 V-Series model with Cadillac's 4.2-liter twin-turbo V-8 Blackwing engine have brought attention to the CT6, but sales were down 17 percent this year through June.
XTS: Production of the large sedan with nine lives is finally expected to end this year with the closure of Oshawa Assembly in Canada, where the car is built for the U.S. The car lasted years longer than initially expected, including a freshening for the 2018 model year.
Flagship EV: An all-electric flagship vehicle is expected for Cadillac around 2022. It could follow a luxury trend of having a crossover silhouette with the underpinnings, performance and handling of a car.
XT4: The long-awaited luxury compact crossover arrived almost a year ago and has quickly risen to be among Cadillac's top-selling nameplates, trailing only the XT5 and Escalade through the first six months of the year. Expect the vehicle to be freshened around 2022.
