Cadillac refuses to alphanumeric characters, such as CT4 and CT5, and begin to use the names of actual models, such as Eldorado and Escalade.
The change in nomenclature will start in 2022. The first will debut an all-electric Cadillac, which should show this year.
After the change of the name will occur as the appearance of new models.
Press Secretary Cadillac Kathy Minter said in an interview that some names can be taken from heritage Cadillac, while others will be new. The Escalade is the only current model Cadillac with a real name and not alphanumeric.
For the first time, Cadillac abandoned its model names in the early 2000-ies, when it introduced the CTS and SRX.
Then he changed course very recently and renamed the sedan with the nickname “CT” and SUVs with the nickname of “XT”.
