Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

The Cadillac lineup is about to experience some major changes. Over the next few years, the luxury brand is looking to double its profits and turn around years of declining sales. Part of that plan involves introducing a new model every six months or so. Here’s a look at some of the new vehicles Cadillac has in the works, along with the brand’s plans for existing models.

The hotly anticipated XT4 compact crossover will be available for purchase this fall. With a roomy interior, plenty of power, and a more affordable starting price, it’s expected to be an immediate bestseller for Cadillac.


The XT6 is likely to arrive sometime in 2019. It’s a three-row crossover that will sit between the XT5 and the Escalade (but expect it to take more after the XT5 than the larger Escalade).

A sporty rear-wheel drive car, the CT4 is expected to arrive in 2020. It’s being envisioned as a competitor to the BMW 2-series, Mercedes-Benz CLA, and Audi A3.


The midsize CT5, which gets its inspiration from Cadillac’s Escala concept, is likely to be introduced by 2020. Together with the CT4, it will replace the ATS, CTS, and XTS sedans. It’s being designed to compete against the BMW 3-series, Mercedes-Benz C-class, and Audi A4.

New luxury car

The Cadillac lineup is expected to offer a new luxury flagship car by 2022. This vehicle could have both V8 and hybrid options, and it’s also likely to be inspired by the Escala.

Corvette cousin

There’s speculation that Cadillac will put out a performance vehicle based on the next-generation C8 Corvette supercar. No firm date has been attached yet.

Electric vehicles

Cadillac parent GM has a plan to introduce 20 EVs and fuel-cell vehicles by 2023. At least a few of these are likely to be Cadillac nameplates.

The Escalade is scheduled for a complete redesign for the 2020 model year. A few of the changes in the works: independent rear suspension, three engine options, and a price tag that’s $10,000 higher.


The XT5, Cadillac’s only crossover until the upcoming launch of the XT4, is in line for a refresh in 2020 and a redesign in 2021.


Cadillac’s flagship CT6 sedan is expected to be around until at least 2021. The 2019 model got an extensive refresh, so there aren’t any dramatic changes on the immediate horizon.
