In the spring of 2019, Cadillac introduced the CT5 model, which replaced the old CTS. Now, it’s receiving an update in the form of new LED headlights, slimmer turn signals, larger air intakes, a wider grille, and a larger screen on the interior. The taillights are also getting a slight update, and two new paint options, Deep Space Metallic and Typhoon Metallic, are being added.
The predecessor had analog gauges in front of the steering wheel and a 10-inch infotainment screen. Now, they are replacing this setup with a curved screen measuring a total of 33 inches, divided into three sections, providing access to Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.
Otherwise, much remains the same, but 5G for the Wi-Fi hotspot replaces the previous 4G. The front seats, as before, can be equipped with heating, ventilation, and massage features, and the steering wheel can be heated. In terms of engines, things remain unchanged, with a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine producing 240 horsepower as the base option.
The next step is a twin-turbocharged V6 3.0-liter engine, delivering 340 horsepower. Both are paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels, with all-wheel drive available as an option. A sportier V-version and Blackwing will be released later.
Production begins next spring in Michigan, and prices will be announced in the vicinity of that time.
