Set to make its formal debut next month at the 2019 New York International Auto Show, the CT5 is first in Cadillac's upcoming sedan offensive. A compact CT4 will slot below the CT5, while the CT6's future is hazy at best. With the XT4, XT5, and XT6 crossover SUVs future already secured, Cadillac's sedans needed a rethink.

    Jaguar dropped a wonderful bit of news at the 2018 NY auto show.
