Overview

Model Preview

The carryover 2024 Cadillac CT5 is coming to dealers before the end of the year. Initial reports seemed to indicate that the sedan would undergo a refresh, but now the refresh is said to be coming for the 2025 model year. However, the upscale CT5, and its performance V-series, are slated to receive some additional paint colors this model year.

Four exterior color options are going away on the CT5-V. The colors in question are Blaze Orange Metallic, Wave Metallic, Electric Blue, and Rift Metallic. The CT5 is losing one color (Blaze Orange Metallic). Replacement colors include Velocity Red, Cyber Yellow Metallic, Coastal Blue Metallic, and Black Diamond Tricoat which will all be available for an extra charge.

Since the 2024 CT5 will be a carryover model, we don't expect to see any changes to the sedan's exterior looks. The current model on sale has a bold front end with a classic shield grille above a large air intake. With slim headlights and vertical daytime running lights, the face is slightly aggressive on the CT5. The roofline slopes toward a squared-off rear end with wrap-around taillights.

On the inside, we expect the 2024 CT5 to maintain the same style as the current model on sale. The CT5 is a midsize luxury sedan with room for five. The cargo space leaves you wanting though, as the trunk only holds 11.9 cubic feet of gear, a little below average for a sedan this size. The standard infotainment system for the first three trims includes a 10-inch touchscreen, nine speakers, HD radio and satellite radio, three USB ports, an SD card reader, wireless phone charging, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Stepping up to the V-Series gains you a 15-speaker Bose sound system, and moving to the range-topping V-Series Blackwing earns a 16-speaker AKG sound system. Navigation is only available as a part of a bundle on any trim.

Cadillac CT5

Under the hood, base Luxury models start with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 237 hp and 258- lb-ft of torque. You can move up to the Premium Luxury or Sport trims, where you'll get the option of a 3.0 Liter Twin Turbo V6 engine that makes 335 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. The V-Series give you more tuning on the V6 engine, while the CT5 V-Series Blackwing gives you a V8 engine.

When it comes to safety, Cadillac makes each CT5 standard with lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with a rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, rear parking sensors, and automatic emergency braking. Moving to Premium Luxury, Sport, or V-Series trims brings radar-enhanced front and rear automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and front parking sensors.

Pricing & Release Date

We haven't heard the official launch date of the CT5 and CT5 V-Series yet, but we expect the 2024 models to have tires on the ground by early fall. Pricing for the 2024 CT5 starts at $38,395 for a Luxury AWD model and raises to $44,095 for a Sport trim. V-Series models are priced from $51,495 and grow to $93,495 for a CT5-V Blackwing.

2024 Cadillac CT5 Blends Technology, Style, and Performance

The 2024 Cadillac CT5 is a midsize luxury sedan that looks and performs like an agile athlete. The CT5 boasts impressive available technology, sporty coupe-like styling, and tempting performance options — plus a virtue you might not expect: sensible pricing.

The CT5 can be equipped anywhere from a fine-handling luxury ride to a scorching performer. There are some weak spots, like its unexciting interior design and tiny trunk, though they don't interfere with driving enjoyment.

2024 Cadillac CT5 Lets You Choose Your Performance Level

The 2024 CT5 lineup starts around $40,000 with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 237 horsepower, which is perfectly adequate for cruising and commuting. The CT5 gets more entertaining with the available 335-hp twin-turbo V6. The CT5-V uses a high-out version rated at 360 hp.

These engines are paired with Cadillac's smooth and responsive 10-speed automatic transmission. Buyers can be assured of excellent handling characteristics, combined with a confident and comfortable ride. The CT5 starts out with rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive is available.

The CT5-V Blackwing blasts into its own world courtesy of a supercharged V8 that lays down 668 hp. A six-speed manual is standard, though the Blackwing is a tick faster with the 10-speed automatic added. Pricing starts at $96,085, and for that, you can go from zero to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and hit 200 mph on a closed course. While it might seem beastly, the Blackwing is available with magnetic suspension dampers to smooth out the ride.

2024 Cadillac CT5 Is Comfortable But Not Captivating Inside

The CT5 provides enough room for five to travel comfortably, though the sloping roofline does cut into rear headroom. All seats offer a nice blend of padding and support. The Sport and V models are available with front sport seats that fit snugly to keep bodies in place through the corners. The 10-inch touchscreen and other controls are thoughtfully placed and easy to negotiate.

There's nothing particularly beautiful or clever about the interior design. The mood is subdued compared with others in this class. Optional grades of leather and wood or carbon fiber trim do dress things up but don't expect to be dazzled when you climb behind the wheel. Trunk space doesn't do any favors for the CT5 either. We expect more than 11.9 cubic feet from a midsize sedan, no matter how well it performs.

Is The 2024 Cadillac CT5 Good For Everyday Driving?

The 2024 CT5 is easy to live with on a daily basis. Even the Blackwing can provide relaxing travel when equipped with the optional adaptive suspension. The CT5's superb handling is easy to appreciate and might add some zest to mundane errands. You can fold down the rear seat if your groceries overwhelm the trunk.

With the standard engine, the CTS can be relatively efficient for a luxury sedan, earning EPA ratings of 23 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 27 combined. Adding AWD results in 25 mpg combined.

2024 Cadillac CT5 Offers Hands-Free Driving

Except for the Blackwing, every CT5 is available with Cadillac's semi-autonomous highway driving system Super Cruise. It's as sophisticated as it sounds, the closest you can get to a car that drives itself.

The total cost can be steep, however, since Super Cruise requires a number of other features that aren't standard. More common safety features, like lane-keeping assist and blind-spot monitoring, are standard across the lineup.

Is The 2024 Cadillac CT5 A Good Car?

The 2024 Cadillac CT5 is a well-rounded luxury sedan that emphasizes performance from the start. You can dial up the performance hardware as you see fit while staying below the asking price of similar-performing competitors. Unless you prize opulence and trunk space, there are no compromises to make when buying a CT5. All things considered, it's as solid a choice for luxury motoring as you'll find anywhere else.

2024 Cadillac CT5 Alternatives

Among the CT5's competitors, the Lexus ES is plusher inside, but can't match the CT5 in performance. The Acura TLX is a handsome value that lacks style and excitement. The BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class offer undisputed quality at substantially higher starting prices.
