When it comes to SUVs, the Cadillac brand currently boasts with only two models: the SRX crossover and the Escalade. But GM's luxury division has filed trademark applications for CT5, Cadillac CT5, CT6 and Cadillac CT6 nameplates, which suggests that two all-new models will be launched in the following years.
Why SUVs? Well, the current Cadillac lineup is chuck full of sedans and coupes, but lacks lifestyle crossover vehicles such as Buick's Encore and Enclave, for example. Identified under serial numbers 86343074, 86343063, 86343098 and 86343083, the trademark applications have been submitted with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on July 21st.

There's a lot of mystery in this regard, but the category under which the aforementioned fillings were filed gives us a clue about what to expect: "Motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, engines therefor and structural parts thereof." Don't know about you, but we think that sounds a lot like two new Cadillacs, the CT5 and CT6, are currently in development. Only time will tell exactly what these two cars are all about, but we salute Cadillac's way of naming its future models.

From the beginning of the 20th century until the mid-1960s, the American luxury manufacturer gave its cars alphanumeric monikers such as the Type 59, Series 75 and so on. From 1965 to this day, the brand started giving its models normal names, without any numbers whatsoever. Maybe that's a way of saying "We're going to do our new models as good as we did cars back then," so keep those fingers crossed.
