2020 Cadillac CT5 Pricing Announced

Cadillac has significantly revamped its sedan lineup over the last few years, both as a means of staying competitive in the segment, as as a means of differentiating its various four-door offerings with regard to size, features and pricing. Now, we have the official price figures for the all-new 2020 Cadillac CT5.

The base-model – the 2020 Cadillac CT5 Luxury – starts at $37,890, including destination freight charge. That’s $1,105 less than the outgoing Cadillac ATS and $9,105 less than the outgoing Cadillac CTS.

Note: standard Cadillac CT5 pictured here.

With a starting price under $38,000, the 2020 Cadillac CT5 is competitively priced compared to its primary German rivals, which include the BMW 3 Series ($40,250), Mercedes-Benz C-Class ($41,400) and Audi A4 ($37,200). What’s more, the 2020 Cadillac CT5 bests the Germans when it comes to available front headroom, front shoulder room, front legroom, rear legroom and rear shoulder room.

RWD $37,890 $41,690 $42, 690 $41,400 $40,250 $39, 200*
AWD $40,490 $44,780 $45, 290 $43,400 $42,250 $42, 000
  • * Base Audi A4 is front-wheel-drive, rather than rear-wheel-drive like the rest of the segment contenders

The standard CT5 draws motivation from the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine (production code LSY) producing 237 horsepower, while a twin-turbo 3.0L V6 producing 335 horsepower (production code LGY) will be optional. Note that the above pricing structure is specific to the base 2.0L four-cylinder engine, with pricing for the optional boosted 3.0L V6 slated for announcement at a later date.

Both powerplant options mate to a 10-speed automatic transmission, making the 2020 Cadillac CT5 the only model to offer a 10-speed auto box in the segment.

The  CT5 is built on the dedicated rear-wheel-drive Alpha 2 platform from Cadillac’s parent company, General Motors. All-wheel-drive will be optional.

Inside, the CT5 is equipped with Cadillac’s highly-innovative Rear Camera Mirror, Safety Alert Seat and OnStar as standard. Standard safety tech includes Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking and Front Pedestrian Braking. A 10-inch touchscreen and rotary controller provide infotainment inputs, while Active Noise Cancellation keeps things comfy.

  1. This just in. 2020 CT5 Blackwing will have a warp engine and will be able to make the Kessel run in 12 parsecs. (I can rumor as good as anyone else)

  2. Incredible.

    I suspect the price climbs quite steeply for the Luxury and Sport versions.

  3. Oops. Just looked more closely. I see the other models listed. Looks good vis a vis the competition.

  4. Competitive pricing and great looks with an interior that finally joins the competition. Looks like a winner, but the 4-cyl. needs at least 300-Hp in this category.

    • The base engine does not need any more power. It’s perfectly fine the way it is.

      The overwhelming majority of those who buy vehicles in the luxury D segment have absolutely no clue how much horsepower their car has, let alone what is under the hood, how many cylinders it has, or how it’s aspirated. They just care that it’s a luxury car, with a luxury badge, that it gives them that “feel good” feeling and some sense of prestige. That’s what the CT5 does, and it does so in spades.

      By the way, the C300 and 330i both make 255 horsepower compared to the 237 for the CT5. The difference is an entire 18 horsepower… it is is negligible, and might actually deliver better fuel economy and better pick-up via the 10-speed.

      Where power figures do matter is the next level up… the 3.0L TT subset of the segment. Those cars are, in fact, purchased more so on performance attributes by their appropriate demographics. And in that case, the CT5 has slightly less horsepower but more torque.

  5. ‘Nearer 300-Hp’
    And the TT-V6 nearer 365-Hp.

    • Cuzz it would be embarrassing if my gal friend’s Sorento could out run it, not to mention a slew of other SUV’S and Accords, etc.

      • Your gal’s Sorento would outrun the BMW 330i, the MBZ C300 and Audi A4… along with the CT5 350T. But that’s not why these vehicles are bought, whatsoever.

        By that measure, the Ford F-150 Raptor would outrun even the high-level CT5, 3 Series and C-Class models… along with the Audi S4.

        • Thank you!

      • You and your gal are idiots if you drive a Sorento just to outrun a superior Cadillac.

  6. Any guesses what the base price of the CT4 would be?

    • I was wondering this too… Maybe $31K? I don’t know… Given the Tesla Model 3 and upcoming Polestar 2 will both be hovering around 50K, I’m hoping a loaded CT4-V with Supercruise will slot in around $43-45K? Since the new V is the old V-Sport, and the old CTS V-Sport was around $12K more than base price, I’m guessing the CT5-V will be $50K and the CT4-V will be about $43K.
