John Roth, vice president of Global Cadillac, asserted that the CT5 is a crucial component of Cadillac’s global portfolio.

Engine Choices Return

As for the CT5’s driving dynamics, the rear-wheel-drive layout assures uncompromising performance. Adhering to Cadillac’s philosophy of isolated precision, the 2025 CT5 delivers a quiet yet engaging driving experience. The vehicle comes with a standard 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine and an optional 3.0-liter Twin-Turbo V6 engine. The all-wheel-drive option further enhances the vehicle’s control and confidence across various driving conditions. To tailor the driving experience, a Driver Mode Selector offers options like Tour, Sport, Snow/Ice, and a customizable MyMode.

In terms of new and enhanced features, the car offers optional 5G Wi-Fi connectivity, Google integration, and a range of standard and optional driving aids. These include Blind Zone Steering Assist and Intersection Automatic Emergency Braking, which come standard, as well as optional Traffic Sign Recognition and Intelligent Speed Assist. The Driver Focus Assist feature is combined with the optional Super Cruise driver aid technology. Additional offerings include new exterior colors like Deep Space Metallic and Typhoon Metallic, as well as three years of OnStar Remote Access for streamlined remote interactions with properly-equipped vehicles.

Massive Tech Screen

The centerpiece of the 2025 CT5’s technological offerings is its 33-inch-diagonal LED color touchscreen. The display boasts 9K resolution and is contoured to align with the driver’s field of view, offering a futuristic and personalized user experience. The touchscreen also acts as the entry point to a myriad of tech functionalities, including Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.

Slated for production at GM’s Lansing Grand River Assembly facility in Michigan, the 2025 Cadillac CT5 will be available starting in the spring of 2024. Additional specifics, including pricing, will be released later, as will updates on the CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing editions.

Looking Ahead

Cadillac aims to transition to an all-electric lineup by 2025. Consequently, the updated CT5 may represent the final generation of models solely powered by internal combustion engines. Finally, as for the more compact Cadillac CT4, its future remains uncertain, including whether it will coexist with the CT5.
