Cadillac is removing a few features for the 2019 model year CTS, according to the most recent order guide for the vehicle published just a few days ago.
On the outside, the 2019 CTS loses the following three colors:
- Phantom Gray Metallic
- Silver Moonlight Metallic
- Midnight Sky Metallic
What’s more, the CTS Morello Red Edition is removed from the list of features of the midsize sport-luxury sedan. The deletion of the Morello Red Edition also removes features specific to the package, such as the (oh-so-sweet) Recaro performance seats and black chrome grille with dark grillettes.
The Cadillac Society Take
The third-generation CTS is coming to the end of its lifecycle, as 2019 will likely be its last model year, and these changes aren’t exactly representative of the model “going out with a bang”.
Cadillac is expected to replace the CTS (along with the ATS) with a single model called Cadillac CT5 that will likely be a “tweener” model, meaning that its size, price and positioning will slot between the current ATS and CTS sedans. The new position is believed to be part of a new strategic approach at Cadillac that aims to offer more car than rivals for a lower price, thereby taking the well-known “more for less” product approach.
