2021 Cadillac CT5: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - January 28, 2020

Model Preview

Cadillac is renewing its lineup from top to bottom, including its luxury sedans, With this came the introduction of the all-new 2020 CT5, a midsize sedan slated as a replacement for both the ATS and CTS. With this luxury sedan still fresh, we expect the 2021 Cadillac CT5 to be a carryover model.

The CT5 arrived with a striking new design language for Cadillac sedans that included a bolder grille with a floating emblem, more prominent vertical LED accent lights, thin headlights, a coupe-like roofline, and T-shaped taillights that flow into the rear quarter panels. We expect this sharp-looking design to carry into the 2021 model year unchanged.

Inside, Cadillac’s new design language takes a cleaner approach with a tidy center stack featuring limited buttons arranged horizontally to give it a wider appearance. This interior also features premium bits like upscale upholstery, a large touchscreen, an electronic gear shifter, and a thick-rimmed steering wheel. With this look entering just its second model year, we expect the 2021 CT5 to retain all the key design elements.

Cadillac CT5

The power behind the CT5 starts with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that bangs out 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The optional engine is a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that delivers 335 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Both engines pair to a 10-speed automatic transmission and rear- or all-wheel drive. We expect these powertrain options to carry on unchanged in the 2021 CT5.

The CT5 has not yet met the broad side of a wall in IIHS and NHTSA testing, but we know it comes standard with advanced safety tech, including automatic emergency braking, forward-collision alert, front pedestrian braking, and OnStar. It also has even more safety tech on the options list, including automatic parking assist, enhanced automatic emergency braking, a following-distance indicator, a 360-degree camera, lane-keep assist, rear pedestrian braking, and more. The 2021 CT5 is confirmed to be one of the first models to be receiving an enhanced version of Cadillac's Super Cruise driver assistance system as an option. The system includes a new automated lane change function as well as an improved user interface.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2021 Cadillac CT5 will be available in the second half of 2020.

Pricing is not available on the 2021 CT5 yet, but we don’t expect any significant changes relative to the current pricing, which ranges from $37,890 to $51,990 (destination fees included).

This midsize luxury sedan will compete with the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and Audi A6.
