Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2021 Cadillac CT5 Overview

Matthew Pilgrim
Automotive Editor - January 25, 2021

What's New

The 2021 Cadillac CT5 returns with some notable available equipment. The CTS replacement can be equipped with the automaker's Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system, a 12-inch digital gauge cluster, and a new Diamond Sky Special Edition package. The latter dresses up the exterior and interior with unique touches.

Choosing Your Cadillac CT5

There are four trim levels for the CT5: Luxury, Premium Luxury, Sport, and V-Series. Pricing starts at $37,990 including destination for the base Luxury and climbs to $48,790 for the V-Series.

Engine Choices

Standard on the lower three CT5 trims is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. On the Premium Luxury, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 can be equipped for an extra $3,500. The V-Series alone receives a mildly more powerful version of the V6.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder237 hp258 lb-ft26 mpg
3.0L Twin-Turbo V6335 hp400 lb-ft22 mpg
3.0L Twin-Turbo V6360 hp405 lb-ft21 mpg

A 10-speed automatic transmission sends power to the CT5’s rear wheels as standard. All-wheel drive is available across the lineup for $2,000.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The CT5 is a midsize sports sedan with a five-passenger cabin. It maximizes rear leg room (37.9 inches), although it comes at the expense of cargo volume. At just 11.9 cubic feet, it's smaller than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW 3-Series, two other well-known competitors in this price range.

Safety Features

The CT5 is standard with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, and a Safety Seat system, which inconspicuously alerts the driver without needlessly alerting all passengers. Blind-spot monitoring is standard on the Premium Luxury trim, but additional safety features are bundled with expensive packages.

Lane keeping assist, a following distance indicator, and automatic high beams are included in the Driver Awareness Plus Package, which jumps from an advertised $500 to, ultimately, $1,100 because it'ss attached to the Lighting Package.

The Driver Assist and Advanced Security Package is listed at $1,950, but it too requires additional packages for an outrageous out-the-door price of $8,680. The much-hyped Super Cruise is restricted to select configurations (V6 AWD on Premium Luxury, RWD/AWD on V-Series) and requires the Driver Awareness Plus Package, and another $2,500. In addition, there is a monthly subscription to utilize that feature.

The CT5 has earned a five-star crash rating from NHTSA.

Connectivity

A standard 10-inch central infotainment touchscreen is equipped to wirelessly connect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and broadcast SiriusXM 360L through nine audio speakers. On Star vehicle connectivity is standard, as are three USB ports and a 4G LTE wi-fi hot spot with a three-month trial period.

Luxury - From $37,990

The base Luxury trim rides on 18-inch wheels and is dressed with LED headlights and taillights, bright chrome window surrounds, heated mirrors with integrated turn signals, automatic wipers, remote engine start, and a capless fuel filler. Standard proximity entry opens the doors to a 12-way power driver’s seat, leatherette seating, and automatic dual-zone climate control.

The $2,800 Sun and Sound Package includes a panoramic sunroof, a premium Bose 15-speaker sound system, and wireless charging, and the $600 Cold Weather Package includes heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

Premium Luxury - From $41,790

The Premium Luxury trim includes upgrades to the seating with 14-way power adjustability and leather surfaces, LED ambient lighting, and a bright-accented grille.

The Climate Package is offered for $1,090 and includes the features of the Cold Weather Package plus ventilated seating. The Bose sound system can be added for $1,350 and a new package called the Technology Package is offered for $1,100 and includes a newly-available 12-inch digital gauge cluster display and a head-up display.

With the upgraded radio, the midrange safety system, and additional displays, the Parking Package becomes available for $2,090 and adds an HD surround-view camera system, automatic parking assist, a rearview camera mirror, a cabin air ionizer, a handsfree trunk release, and power-folding mirrors.

For someone who would rather go all-in with a single click, the Platinum Package is available for $11,850. It includes the Parking, Technology, Lighting, Climate, Navigation and Audio, the Driver Awareness Plus, and the Driver Assist and Advanced Security Package packages (phew!). It also packs exclusive upgrades in the form of finer leather seats, carbon fiber interior trim, lumbar massage, adjustable side bolsters, and manual seat cushion extensions.

Sport - From $42,790

The Sport features unique exterior styling with a unique grille, front and rear fascia, side rocker panels, and rear spoiler while gloss black window surrounds, darkened taillights, and 19-inch wheels complete the sport appearance. Inside, 18-way adjustable sport seats are joined by sport pedals and a sport steering wheel with magnesium paddle shifters.

The Sport’s list of available features nearly matches that of the Premium Luxury trim, albeit with small differences in price to achieve each package’s key features. For example, the Platinum Package in the Sport trim is $12,850.

New for 2021 is an available performance package that's only available on the RWD Sport. Priced at $1,950, the V Performance Package includes magnetic ride control, a performance-tuned suspension, and a mechanical limited-slip rear differential. Painted calipers and upgraded brakes (Brembo in front) are also required and push the package’s actual cost to $2,950.

V-Series - From $48,790

The V-Series benefits from the V Performance Package, an additional driving mode, and a unique gauge arrangement in the digital display. Darkened exterior accents are joined by a unique rear diffuser that sits between a total of four exhaust outlets.

The V-Series option packages are slightly simplified with a $5,290 Premium Package that includes the Climate Package, the Lighting Package, and the upgraded audio. The Platinum Package is offered for $6,290 and features the Parking Package, premium leather seating, carbon-fiber trim, and a panoramic sunroof. Super Cruise can be added to either package for $2,500 (plus monthly fees).

CarsDirect Tip

The 2021 Cadillac CT5 in Premium Luxury trim with the midrange Driver Assist package, premium audio, surround-view camera, digital gauge cluster, and ventilated seats equip the Cadillac with a premium level of features. However, at the same time, this would result in a CT5 that's priced similarly to the more posh BMW 3-Series or Mercedes C-Class.
