Command Attention With This American Made Luxury Sedan
The new 2024 Cadillac CT5 will catch your eye with its sharp design and wallet-friendly price tag. The CT5 undercuts German rivals by five figures, while more competitively priced Japanese rivals are either ancient (Infiniti Q50) or ride on a less dynamic front-wheel-drive-based architecture (Acura TLX). When you consider these strengths along with user-friendly tech and the awesome hands-free Super Cruise driving suite, the CT5 starts to make a lot of sense.
Standard versions of the CT5 are quite nice to drive, especially if you opt for the turbocharged V6. If you have a need for speed — and a healthy budget — the top-dog CT5-V Blackwing is absolutely worth a look. Its thunderous supercharged V8 is a joy to behold and puts serious German metal like the BMW M5 and Audi RS 7 on notice.
The CT5 brings two subtle updates. First, there's a new premium color option called Midnight Sky Metallic. Second, the Onyx Package, which adds stylish dark accents and wheels, now includes a black spoiler.
In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the V sub-brand, the 2024 CT5-V is given special attention. It introduces four new exterior paint options: Coastal Blue Metallic, Cyber Yellow Metallic, and the exclusive Black Diamond Tricoat and Velocity Red. The 20th Anniversary insignia can be spotted in various places like the grille, side rockers, and the dynamic gauge cluster. There has been talk of a full model refresh coming for the CT5 in 2025, so keep your eyes peeled.
The 2024 Cadillac CT5 is available with two engine options: a 2.0L Twin-Scroll Turbocharged I4 and a 3.0L Twin-Turbocharged V6.
The 2.0L engine produces 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, while the 3.0L engine produces 335 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque.
The 2.0L engine can accelerate the CT5 from 0 to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds (RWD) or 6.9 seconds (AWD), while the 3.0L engine can accelerate the CT5 from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds (RWD) or 5.1 seconds (AWD).
The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 2.0L engine is 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway (RWD) or 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway (AWD). The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 3.0L engine is 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway (RWD) or 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway (AWD).
Overall, the 2024 Cadillac CT5 offers a variety of performance and engine options to choose from, depending on your needs and budget.
