Cadillac has patented a luxury coupeJuly 6, 2018
The design of the model is made in the style of the concept Cadillac Escala. However, the serial future of the novelty is a big question.
Patent images of a new model published the portal Cadillac Society. According to the site, the application for a patent was filed by General Motors’ daughter”in February of last year. Neither the brand nor the name of the model in the document is mentioned, but in the exterior of the novelty, the features of Cadillac are traced: in particular, the front compartment is very similar to the concept Escala, introduced in 2016.
The Cadillac Society believes that the model will receive the name CT5 Coupe. Note, the test Cadillac coupe recently in the lenses of the cameras did not come across, but the pictures of the disguised sedan, in which they suspect the novelty of the brand, have long been walking the Web. The plans to release several new four-door sedan previously claimed and the ex-head of Cadillac Johan de Naissen. It is assumed that one of the sedans will be called CT5. It turns out that if the coupe is actually sent to the series, the CT5 will be turned into a separate family.
Meanwhile, according to unofficial data, one of the reasons for Deissen’s departure was that he paid insufficient attention to crossovers, whereas models of this segment in the last few years are in high demand. It is possible that the coupe on the conveyor will not rise.
As for the sedan CT5, then its production should start next year. The engine scale of the model can include turbo four 2.0, bi-turbo V6 3.0 and atmospheric V6 3.6. Also, the sedan can get a hot version with a 550-hp bi-turbo eight 4.2 from the Cadillac CT6 V-Sport.
