Cadillac is expanding its Super Cruise self-driving offering with the all-new CT5 sedan

CadillacThe Cadillac CT5.

Cadillac bucked an industry trend and revealed an all-new sedan at the 2019 New York auto show.

The luxury four-door, available in Luxury and Sport trims, appeared amid a sea of SUVs and an entire floor devoted to pickup trucks at Big Apple’s annual car show. (For the record, Cadillac has also been debuting SUVs at an impressive pace.)

The CT5 slots in below Cadillac’s flagship CT6, which has been around since 2015. Until now, the CT6 has been the only Caddy to offer the brand’s fully hands-free highway self-driving system, Super Cruise. But that technology will now be available on CT5.

Design-wise, CT5 continues a theme for Cadillac of removing some of the more aggressive, angular cues that defined the marque for its “Art and Science” period. Smoothing lines and a fastback roofline give the CT5 broader appeal in the overall luxury market.
