Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury: Complete Photo Gallery

The Cadillac CT5 is the brand’s latest D-segment sedan, first dropping in last year at the New York International Auto Show. Per Cadillac’s new Y trim level strategy, the CT5 is offered in the base-level Luxury, followed by the performance-flavored Sport and even-more-opulent Premium Luxury. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the latter in the following Cadillac Society Complete Photo Gallery.

This is the first time we’ve received high-quality pictures of the Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury on the road, as provided by the automaker. Indeed, this glossy CT5 comes with a variety of interesting details to help set it apart, so let’s dive right in.

Up front, the Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury gets bright treatments for the grille, including a Galvano surround for the lower section of the grille. This stands in contrast to the black mesh grille found on the CT5 Sport and CT5-V.

Additional Galvano trim bits can be found in window moldings. Once again, this helps the Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury stand out from the Sport and CT5-V, both of which come equipped with black moldings.

Interestingly, the Premium Luxury is unique for its door handles, which come with a body-colored treatment and illuminating feature as standard. The sedan also comes with 18-inch wheels as standard, while 19-inchers are optional.

The rear of the vehicle is highlighted by LED tail lamps with a red outer housing lens, unlike the neutral-density (a.k.a. clear) gray-tinted lenses seen on the Sport. Just below the tail lamps, the Premium Luxury comes with a new lower valence and dual exhaust pipes.

This particular model is the 550T, which means it’s equipped with the optional twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 (production code LGY) engine, which is also equipped in the CT5-V. However, in the CT5 Premium Luxury, the ‘six is tuned to produce 335 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, whereas the CT5-V makes 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque.

The Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury is on sale at dealers now.

  1. I’m sorry, I just can’t wrap my arms around this car. I’ve had 5 CTs’ and I don’t believe this is a suitable replace for that car. I Planned on ordering a CT5 Premium Luxury to replace my 2017 CTS, but after seeing one, I just couldn’t do it. I leased a 2020 CT6 instead and couldn’t be happier. Its a GREAT car, maybe even better than the CTS. Too bad its dead too.

    • Yes. You keep saying this. Over, and over, and over, and over, and over……

      • Yeah Frank doesn’t get it. He keeps yelling from the roof tops about it too.

        What car in this demo target segment do you find attractive, Frank? Can you share that?

        • Nothing comes immediately to mind…I love the CTS and the CT6. They had class and dignity. The CT5 is just too generic. It blends in with everything else on the market, including Hondas and Toyotas. Sorry if I’m offending you or anyone else, but it just doesn’t look like a Cadillac to me.

          • Frank – there will be a lot of people who simply don’t see it your way, including myself.

            If you think the CT5 “blends in” with other cars, then I would think one of the following two possibilities is true:
            1. You have a design taste that is not representative of the majority, or
            2. You simply haven’t seen one on the road.

            I am banking on item #2. Everyone who has actually seen one of these in person and on the road sees it as a very attractive vehicle.

            And that brings me to this… “but it just doesn’t look like a Cadillac to me.”

            What you should have said is that the CT5 “does not look like earlier Cadillacs.”

            That would be true. But since the CT5 represents the next generation of the brand’s design language, it obviously doesn’t look like a model released six years ago (CTS) or one released four years ago (CT6). Both of those vehicles represent the last generation of Cadillac design, while the CT5 represents the next generation. This time around, those two design languages are very different, yet somewhat related.

  2. I’m still waiting for my dealer to call me to say the CT5 is available with the V6 engine. I suspect the ’21 CT5 will arrive before the V6 is available.

    Reply
    • It is already available. The dealer is either bad at following up, closed because of the virus, didn’t order any units of the model, or sold them ones it had. I am banking the first option though.

  4. I have a new CT5 for the last month now, and absolutely love it! I’ve had many Cadillac’s over the years, and this is fantastic! Never been in a smoother, quieter car, and the torque is unbelievable! I believe it is very much Cadillac, and encourage anyone to give it a test drive. I’m sure you’ll want one! I believe in “The Standard of the World”!

    • Very good. Is it the 4 cylinder or did you get a 6?

    • Did you had the CTS? If so, how did they compare from ride and handling?

      Reply
      • I had the first CTS IN 2003, and one every 3 years, including the beautiful Coupe in 2011, which had the 6.The new CT5 is such a better riding and handling car, there is no comparison with the previous models. I really believe they hit a homerun with the new CT5!

  5. Love the looks. Sat in a couple. Plenty of room. Really need to test drive, but it may persuade me to trade the XTS which I really am not ready for. There is a summit white sport with “blackout kit” at dealer. Very sharp.
    If any Il. dealers read this, please do not screw the front license plate bracket to an unsold car. I will not buy it.

    • Were I live, Washington State, a cront license plate is mandated. However I do see the occasional car (often Corvettes) without one.

  6. The profile and grille look fantastic. The design to me looks “Cadillac” while also being new and fresh.
