We’re obviously big fans of the 2020 Cadillac CT5. Slotting in as Caddy’s all-new D-segment four-door, the CT5 ticks all the right boxes – except for one. Unfortunately, Caddy isn’t planning to offer the CT5 as a two-door coupe, leaving us a little sad about the circumstance. Luckily, we’ve got the artistic skills to make dreams come true, at least on paper, so we went ahead and rendered ourselves a Cadillac CT5 Coupe.
Up front, our Cadillac CT5 Coupe offers a familiar fascia, with the same bright grille insert and lower bumper treatment as the base-level CT5 Luxury trim level and upgraded Premium Luxury trim level. The headlamps are familiar as well, with newfound horizontal primary lights and striking LED daytime running light signatures pulled vertically along the edges of the outer fascia.
The profile is where things start to look a little different. Following the line started with the LED DRLs, the eye is led rearward toward a gently sloping roofline, which rises and then falls parallel to bright Galvano window trim moldings. Just one door handle per side with this one, plus bright trim added to the handles as well. Upgraded multi-spoke 19-inch silver wheels take a spot in the corners, while the silver Cadillac crest is found on the front fenders.
The rear three-quarters view provides a glimpse of the tail section, which carries the same styling as the standard four-door model. However, this view also gives us another look at the Cadillac CT5 Coupe’s profile. Minus a pair of rear doors, the CT5 looks shorter than the standard CT5 sedan, and indeed, a bit sportier as well.
Since we’re dreaming this whole thing up, we slathered the whole thing in green paint because that’s a color that won’t be offered on the CT5.
It’s worth noting that a Cadillac CT5 Coupe model is almost certainly not gonna happen, or at least we have yet to hear anything to the contrary. But it’s nice to know what such a creation might look like all the same.
With the discontinuation of the Cadillac ATS Coupe, it’s looking like Caddy’s two-door offerings are now officially done for. Hopefully that won’t remain the case for too long. Because even though the segment is rapidly shrinking, there’s just something so right about a Cadillac coupe.

Great renderings!!! The Cadillac CT5 Coupe would be beautiful and Cadillac definitely needs to build a CT5 Coupe version. The Lexus RC350 and Mercedes C-Class Coupe (and E-Class Coupe) and Audi Coupe models are out there and Cadillac had owned the Coupe segment when the CTS Coupe was outselling all of its competition. To Cadillac management: Please bring back a Cadillac Coupe model as soon as possible.
Great concept, but I think GM’s history is the problem, i.e., ElDorado, Riviera, Monte Carlo, ATS, etc. No sellem, no makem!
As romantic as the idea is, sales of Luxury coupes are very small in the US. I don’t know if they’re more popular in China. As for Europe, Cadillac couldn’t hope to sell many there, if at all.
No question the coupe market is not what it was BUT the name players offer several coupe options. Cadillac needs to reconsider this unfortunate stance for 2 reasons:
1–it looks great
2–it makes it look like Cadillac is in retreat.
The “name players” offer couples because they CAN. They have far larger pools of buyers to draw from and are sold in more places around the world. Face it. It’s CUV’s and SUV’s for Cadillac for the foreseeable future.
The CTS coupe sold well, the ATS was a step back. With the CT5 Caddy has a chance to make a move and it’s a shame they have chosen to abandon this market. Not looking for multiple coupe offerings, I get the larger pool thing, it’s a question of keeping a presence in a market segment that they have always been in.
As I recall the last Auto News 1st Half 2019 US sales report had 70% SUV/CUV/Truck and 30% Autos., give or take a few points. Granted Cadillac is trying to appeal to a younger market, But Cadillac is not yet Audi, Bimmer,, Mercedes. Lexus, etc. Taking the 3.0L TT V6 out of the CT6 and dropping a detuned version inthe CT5 is hardly making the CT5 attractive to a younger market. And leaving the puny 310 3.6L V6 as the onlly non-Blackwing engine option in the CT6 is short-sighted. The 3.6L was inadequate in my CTS and the 3.0L in my CT6 is perfect. My wife’s Benz CLK and now her GLC300 interiors made my CTS and CT6 interirs look far inferior. Cadillac loses on appearance, soft surface touch and quality, switchgear precision and quality and her GLC sticker was $25k less than my CT6.
Shoot it before it has a chance to multiply. While this is more visually pleasing than the CT5 sedan, the overall design features don’t work cohesively to create an attractive vehicle.
Last I heard the XT5 was the best selling Cadillac in the world, which means mostly in China.
XT5 is also the best-selling Cadillac in the United States.
There will be a coupe, but it will look like the car from that leaked patent
As you might have guessed I included the US in the “World”. China sales H1 2019 = 111,207 all models, US H1 2019 75,734 of which 26,396 were XT5
I’ll take the evergreen CT5 sedan luxury version and slather on “SEVILLE” emblems where they belong! Yes, I have three Eldorados.

Need a coupe convertible. Nothing offered in a convertible since the 2009 XLR
I love my 2013 CTS-V Coupe. It is a 6-speed manual tranny dressed in Black Diamond Tricoat. As long as GM makes this model, I’ll have no other.
However, if GM discontinues the CTS-V Coupe, you’re chasing me to the Dodge Hellcat Coupe.
