The Cadillac CT5 made its first appearance at the April at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. The new sedan indirectly replaces the Cadillac ATS as the brand’s latest D-segment four-door. Now, we’re taking a look at the CT5 in Summit White paint.
This is the first time we’ve seen the Cadillac CT5 in this particular paint finish, and, as evidenced by the pictures, it gives us a better look at the sedan’s styling and curves. We also like how the white is offset by a number of contrasting black accents, and in our opinion, this color looks far better than the other paint finishes we saw at the CT5’s debut, which included a purple color on the Premium Luxury trim level, and a gray color on the Sport trim level.
To note, this exterior color is dubbed Summit White (color code GAZ), which is a new hue for the CT5. It’s got a non-Metallic finish, which is pretty big news given the previous Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS never offered this color. Previously, the ATS and CTS were only offered in Crystal White Tricoat, which was an optional extra priced at $1,000. And that meant anyone who desired a white ATS or CTS was forced to purchase a metallic hue they may not have otherwise wanted.
The CT5 fixes this issue with the non-metallic Summit White, which is offered as a standard color at no extra cost. Meanwhile, Crystal White Tricoat remains an optional extra. More information on all that can be found here.
This particular model is the Cadillac CT5 Sport trim level, and features a standard turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine (production code LSY) mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission with Electronic Precision Shift technology. The Cadillac CT5 is built on the critically-acclaimed Alpha architecture, with RWD being standard and AWD as an optional extra.
The Sport trim level is differentiated from the Luxury and Premium Luxury thanks to darker exterior accents, including bits for the grille and rocker extensions. The Sport also comes with standard 19-inch wheels and Brembo brakes. It’s also worth noting that the Cadillac CT5 Sport features the same suspension as the Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels, as we covered previously.
