Cadillac CT5-V In Velocity Red: Live Photo Gallery

The new Cadillac CT5-V sports sedan was introduced back in May, and now we’re getting a glimpse of the hot-to-trot four-door on the floor of the 2019 Miami International Auto Show. Showing its stuff in a searing paint shade dubbed Velocity Red, this is the first time we’ve seen the 2020 Cadillac CT5-V in this particular color.

To note, the Velocity Red paint finish is tagged with the color code G7C, and touch-up paint number WA-130X.

In terms of exterior styling, the CT5-V is closely related to that of the non-V CT5 in the Sport trim level, with a few notable differences such as the V featuring more black accents, including a black grille surround as well as the trim piece above the rear license plate cutout.

This particular Cadillac CT5-V also comes with 19-inch premium painted alloy wheels with a Satin Graphite finish (production code 57M). The rollers are wrapped in 19-inch summer-only run-flat tires as standard, but 19-inch all-season run-flat tires (production code QBJ) are also on offer.

Beyond the styling details, the real magic of the Cadillac CT5-V lies in the mechanical specs. Under the hood, we find the performance sedan boasting a twin-turbo 3.0L V6 engine (production code LGY) producing 355 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. All that go is routed to the ground through a 10-speed automatic transmission.

To make the most of those numbers, the CT5-V also comes with Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 suspension bits, big Brembo front brakes, and an electronic limited-slip differential. The whole shebang is based on on the rear-wheel-based Alpha architecture, with both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive offered with regard to the drive type.

All told, we’re digging the look, but we’re still chomping at the bit to get a gander at the upcoming next-level Cadillac CT5-V model, which promises even more performance and a track-ready attitude to boot.

  1. I was pretty dead set on a CT4 as my next car, but these photos have me seriously reconsidering.

  2. When will the build and price tool be available, for the CT5, on the Cadillac web site????

  3. Ketchup red, not my favorite color, but when will the CT5 be available at my dealer, and in a better color such as garnet?

    • December/January timeframe is what we we’re hearing right now.

      • Thanks for the guess. The official Cadillac word has been the fourth quarter. We are now halfway through the 4th quarter. Apparently they should have said very late 4th quarter.

        • Yes, but there was a strike that lasted over a month, which pushed things back… potentially more than by a month.

  4. I’ve been checking the Cadillac website for a month now and still nothing. In my opinion, the roll-out of this car is an epic fail on the part of Cadillac from a marketing perspective thus far. Cadillac allowed Motor Trend to review the car – which was unfavorable – and yet the car is barely visible from a consumer perspective.

    • The fact that a few people have driven and shared their opinion a product that’s not available to buy isn’t really all that relevant, since the car is not out yet.

      On a related note, the likes of MotorTrend, Car & Driver, as well as Road & Track are becoming less and less relevant and representative of what people actually buy. The sixth-gen Camaro was the winner of the comparisons by all of these publications, yet it has lost from a sales standpoint. The same holds true for many Cadillac models.

  5. Why has cadillac society not published anything on the reasons for the delay in delivering the CT5 to the dealer, or the problems causing the delay?

    • CHILDREN!!

      Has everyone forgotten that GM had been on strike for a month and it ended only 8-10 days ago?

      Reply
    • Cadillac has always stated “Late 2019” for CT5.
      As for this web forums “failings”, why don’t you send a message to Alex and tell him what you think?

  6. The strike is no excuse for cadillac society failing to publish anything about the plans for the delivery of the CT5.

    Reply
    • Marshall – allow me to clear up a few things.

      From the onset, Cadillac said late 2019 for launch of the CT5. We do not know whether or not they will meet that target. As it stands, there are still 42 days for them to meet their own deadline.

      Publishing something beyond that would be jumping the gun with guess work, and is the equivalent of fake news… which isn’t something we do.

      • I understand your desire to not publish false news. But certainly you could write about whether or not production has started, or why not. You could indicate if tooling is in place or why not. You could even write about rumours and other interesting bits. I could go on but I think I’ve said enough. But thank you for the reporting you have done.

      • Alex I don’t think this is all accurate. The website said “fall 2019” from the April debut and over summer. Yes the strike delayed by 6-8 weeks but they were behind before that too and used the strike as a convenient excuse. Or the end of the world but frustrating for someone who is riding their current car to the grave and looking for a CT5 sooner than later! Thanks for all the info you do share!

  7. Why did Cadillac decide to de-power the V series ? I have a 2011 V Coupe, and was disappointed to see what is in store.

    Reply
  8. I can’t wait to be able to build a CT5-V. This is most likely going to be my next car. I hate to buy the first year but it looks like I might have to bite the bullet. The CT5-V is missing some things that the V sport had. Digital gauge cluster and HP being important to me. I can’t wait to drive one or even see one in person.
