  Cadillac celebrates championships with special editions ATS-V and CTS-V Championship Editions come in Black Raven or Crystal WhiteWith its Cadillac V-Performance DPi-V.R prototype, Cadillac captured its first ever IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2017, the first year of its return to endurance racing after 14 years in GT racing. The company fielded three cars, with brothers Jordan and Ricky Taylor winning the driver’s championship at the wheel of their father (and IMSA sports car racing legend) Wayne Taylor’s team, which captured the team championship to give Cadillac the trifecta.

Last summer, Cadillac announced that it will be dropping the ATS, CTS and XTS for one sedan, presumably called CT5 to fit the naming scheme set by the CT6 and XT5. Now we get our very first look at the upcoming sedan thanks to these spy shots.

The first thing that jumps out is the big hood scoop. We sincerely doubt that scoop will make it to production, and when combined with the scalloped shapes on the car's flanks, we and the spy photographer feel they're probably there to dupe people into thinking it's a weird Dodge Charger. The disguise isn't working, but the scoop surprisingly looks pretty good. Maybe Cadillac should consider putting one on an inevitable V model.

  Cadillac XT4 Reportedly Debuting In March At New York Auto Show Caddy finally gets a much-needed compact crossover for its lineup. In 2015, Cadillac confirmed plans to produce a crossover below the XT5 in 2018, and the time has finally arrived for the XT4's reveal. An unnamed source from automaker now tells GM Authority an official unveiling for the smaller SUV should happen at the New York Auto Show in late March.

It has a camouflage simiilar to a Dodge Charger . This is our first look at what we expect to be the 2020 Cadillac CT 5 sport sedan, a one-to-rule-them-all replacement for the ATS, CTS and XTS.

Moving past the fake bodywork, we can see that this CT5 takes inspiration from the Cadillac Escala concept. It has the long, almost fastback cabin and extra rear quarter window of that concept. The headlights are slim horizontal units, too, though they still sweep back a bit to bridge the gap between current models and the Escala. We also see that there's a decent amount of distance between the front axle and the base of the A-pillar, so we suspect that the sedan will retain rear-drive and optional all-wheel-drive drivetrains.

We don't have any other cars in the image to compare it to, but considering the cars the CT5 will replace, we expect it's roughly the size of a CTS, maybe even a touch smaller to satisfy those who want a 3 Series/A4/C-Class size luxury sedan. It will also probably use one or more of the existing powertrains in the Cadillac sedan fleet, which include a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder, naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6, and a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. We'll also probably see the production model sometime in 2019 since that's when the CTS and ATS will go to the big garage in the sky.

With a 109.4-inch wheelbase and an overall length stretching 181.1 inches, the XT4 straddles the compact and subcompact classes, being significantly larger than the BMW X1 but not quite as big as the X3. Its closest competitors, dimensionally, are the Audi Q5 and the Lexus NX. Compared with its XT5 sibling, the XT4 has a 3.1-inch-shorter wheelbase and is 8.4 inches shorter overall.
