Article by Andrew Christian, on October 13, 2014

Recently, Cadillac confirmed that it is working on a new top-end vehicle that will be called CT6 and will be built in late 2015 at Detroit-Hamtramck. Moreover, the new vehicle will take on cars such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A8 or the BMW 7-Series. Meanwhile, Cadillac signed off a new luxury sedan that will arrive on the market at the end of the decade.

Set to be called CT8 or CT9, the new sedan will compete with long-wheelbase versions of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series and Audi A8. For those who don’t know, the CT6 also marks a new naming convention for Cadillac vehicles and will be company’s lightest and most agile car in its class of top-level luxury sedans.

Moreover, Cadillac’s Johan de Nysschen also added that the company is planning an electric car, a successor to the ELR plug-in hybrid and at least two new crossover models. de Nysschen said that one of the crossovers will be positioned below of the SRX while the other one will sit above.

A smaller sedan could also happen and if built, it will be slotted below the ATS, in order to take on vehicles such as the Audi A3 Sedan, Mercedes-Benz CLA or the BMW 1-Series.

The redesigned Cadillac SRX is expected to arrive in 2016, while a possible seven-seat crossover is planned for 2017-2018.

Regarding the new naming scheme, Cadillac will use the ‘CT’ designation for the sedans, while using the ‘XT’ designation for future crossovers. Moreover, Cadillac plans to build the CT6 as well as the SRX successor in China, a market that posted some impressive numbers for the American brand. [source: MotorAuthority.com]
