What's New

The 2002 Cadillac CT5 gains a high-performance variant, the supercharged V8-powered CT5-V Blackwing. The rest of the CT5 line continues with minor adjustments to equipment and option packages. The CT5 debuted in 2020 as Cadillac's midsize sedan offering.

Choosing Your Cadillac CT5

The regular CT5 is scheduled to arrive at dealers later this year. Pricing and full build data aren't available yet. This entry will be updated to include the full CT5 line when information becomes available.

The new CT5-V Blackwing is on sale now, priced from $84,990 including destination.

Engine Choices

The rear-drive CT5-V Blackwing is powered by a hand-built supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that puts out 668 horsepower and 659 lb-ft of torque. That makes the Blackwing the most powerful Cadillac ever built, not to mention the fastest.

According to Cadillac, the CT5-V Blackwing scoots from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds with the standard six-speed manual transmission. The optional 10-speed automatic with launch control ($3,175) reduces the sprint to 3.4 seconds. Cadillac claims a top speed in excess of 200 mph.

The CT5-V Blackwing is EPA-rated at 15 miles per gallon combined with the manual transmission and 16 mpg combined with the automatic.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Ferocious as it is, the CT5-V Blackwing is still a midsize luxury sedan with room for five. The trunk, however, holds just 11.9 cubic feet, a figure more appropriate for a compact.

Safety Features

Since the Blackwing sits at the top of the CT5 line, most driver assistance features are standard. Every example gets lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, front and rear parking sensors, and a vibrating safety alert in the driver seat

Models equipped with the automatic transmission also come with adaptive cruise control and radar-enhanced automatic emergency braking with reverse function. These items are available on manual models in the $900 Driver Assist Package.

The available Parking Package ($1,110) adds a rearview mirror camera, a surround-view camera with recorder, rear pedestrian alert, a cabin air ionizer, and an automating parking system (automatic transmission only).


The Blackwing is the only CT5 model to come with a 16-speaker AKG sound system. Other features include a 10-inch touchscreen, navigation, three USB ports, wireless device charging, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

CT5-V Blackwing — MSRP From $84,990

The Blackwing spares no performance part in the Cadillac arsenal. Goodies include high-performance Brembo brakes, an adaptive sport suspension with magnetic ride control, an electronic limited-slip differential, summer performance tries on 19-inch alloy wheels, and front performance seats with 18-way adjustment. A performance data recorder is available for $1,600, and carbon-ceramic brakes cost $9,000.

The Carbon Fiber 1 Package ($4,100) equips the body with a carbon fiber front splitter, rear spoiler, and front wheels deflectors. To that, the Carbon Fiber 2 Package ($5,230) adds a carbon fiber grille header, rear diffuser, and rocker trim moldings. A panoramic sunroof is a $1,450 standalone option.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing isn't merely fast, but a track-focused ride for dedicated enthusiasts. The non-Blackwing CT5-V is about half the price and can still hit 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. Let that sink in before visiting the dealer.

Wide range of performance. One of the 2022 Cadillac CT5’s greatest strengths is the large number of powertrains shoppers can choose from. From a turbo four-cylinder up to a supercharged V8 engine, there’s a CT5 luxury sedan out there with the right amount of performance for everyone.

The CT5 comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as standard. It’s rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which helps the CT5 feel reasonably quick in a straight line. The available twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine is a much better match for the CT5, bringing 335 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. The engine has a tiny bit of lag but pulls strong when the turbos kick on.

For even more performance, there are the CT5-V models. The standard CT5-V is powered by the same twin-turbo V6, but it’s been tuned to make 360 hp. The result is quicker acceleration and a better exhaust note than the standard V6. For outright speed, only the CT5-V Blackwing will fit the bill. Its monstrous supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine produces 668 hp and, unlike all of its competitors, is available with a six-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive. It’s good for a zero-to-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds and pulls like a freight train.

Impressive tech features. Cadillac has made great strides in the technology department recently. The CT5 comes stacked with features, even on base trims. A 10-inch touchscreen is standard on the CT5, as are wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hot spot, nine audio speakers, voice recognition, and three USB ports. The sedan features the latest CUE infotainment system, which has greatly improved over time.

The CT5 can be fitted with a 12-inch digital instrument cluster, a wireless charging pad, navigation, and a 15-speaker Bose audio system. While the CT5 isn’t as high-tech as its rivals from Mercedes-Benz, Audi, or BMW, it’s a step in the right direction for Cadillac and the tech is easy to use.

The most high-tech feature available on the CT5 is General Motors’ semi-autonomous driving system called Super Cruise. For 2022, the hands-free system is available on Premium Luxury and Sport trims as part of a package. Super Cruise is one of the few hands-free systems on the market and is incredibly helpful on long highway drives. The system isn’t cheap, raising the CT5 Premium Luxury’s price tag by $4,665, but for drivers that spend a lot of time on highways, it changes the game.

Cadillac CT5

Won’t break the bank. Surprisingly, the CT5 is one of the more affordable vehicles in the compact class. The sedan starts at $37,295, which undercuts the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Genesis G70, BMW 3-Series, and Audi A4. Looking at the CT5’s extensive list of standard features, it’s easy to see that the sedan is a good value option for drivers on a tight budget.

The base Luxury trim comes well-equipped with things like synthetic leather upholstery, a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, keyless entry, a universal garage door opener, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Cadillac also offers things like automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, a safety alert seat, and rain-sensing windshield wipers as standard.

Moving up to the Premium Luxury trim is worth the money. It brings leather upholstery, a wireless charging pad, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and ambient interior lighting. It’s also offered with more optional safety features and luxury features.

Upscale, not luxurious. Competitors like Mercedes-Benz and Genesis have come out with stunning designs and fitted their vehicles with high-quality materials that spoil owners with opulence. The CT5 doesn’t do that. Compared to rivals, the CT5’s interior is dull and muted.

We can’t fault the straightforward design, as that will appeal to a lot of consumers that don’t want something overly complicated. Unfortunately, the CT5 comes with cheap materials. Higher trim levels have a few materials that liven things up, but cheap black plastics are found throughout the entire lineup. We think more consumers would be happy to pay more and get some nicer materials instead of paying less to get a car that looks like it shares parts from Chevrolet’s far more affordable options.

In addition to the low-end materials and muted design, the CT5 is one of the smaller options in the class. The rear seats offer 37.9 inches of legroom and a tight 36.6 inches of headroom. The majority of the CT5’s competitors feel roomier, even if they don’t have the numbers to match, because of their designs. The CT5 has one of the smaller trucks in the class, offering just 11.9 cubic feet of cargo space.

Final thoughts. The 2022 Cadillac CT5 does just enough to remain competitive in the class. Consumers searching for a sporty sedan should look at the V-badged models. Others wanting something upscale, high-tech, and comfortable should look elsewhere. The CT5 is easily outdone by competitors, but it does cost a lot less.

For comparison, the Genesis G70 offers sporty performance, a stunning design, high-tech features, and punchy engines. It also offers great value. The BMW 3-Series is the original sports sedan. Its blend of performance, luxury, comfort, and technology is nearly unrivaled.
