The 2020 Cadillac CT5 is shorter than the CTS, but its wheelbase has been stretched 1.5 inches. This gives the CT5 a sportier stance with the wheels pushed further to the corners. Cadillac says that its fastback profile is inspired by the Escala concept.
“From every angle, the CT5 exudes athleticism, sophistication and confidence,” said Andrew Smith, executive director of global Cadillac design. “Cadillac’s signature hard-edge cues have evolved to a more sculptural and fluid expression of the brand’s design language.”
The 2020 CT5 will be offered in Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels, which are differentiated by different exterior accents and grilles. The Sport trim level stands out thanks to its darker accents and sportier grille, rocker extensions, spoiler and 19-inch wheels.
Inside the CT5’s interior is more luxurious than its predecessor with higher quality materials and tech features. A new 10-inch touchscreen sits on top of the dash and there’s wireless charging for your cell phone. The infotainment system also offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The 2020 CT5 will be offered with either a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder or a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 that are both mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The V6 generates 335 hp and 400 lb-ft. of torque, while the four-cylinder generates 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft.
