The Cadillac CT5 is Caddy’s latest D-segment model that indirectly replaces the ATS Sedan. In fact, the CT5 is now the luxury brand’s largest sedan model following the departure of the Cadillac CT6 from the North American market. Now, we’re taking a look at this classy four-door draped in an exquisite shade of green.
This particular hue is dubbed Evergreen Metallic, and it’s tagged with color code GJ0, and touch-up code WA-624D. Evergreen Metallic is offered with all five interior color combinations available for the 2020 Cadillac CT5, including:
- Jet Black with Jet Black accents
- Sahara Beige with Jet Black accents
- Maple Sugar with Jet Black accents
- Sedona Sauvage with Jet Black accents
- Whisper Beige with Jet Black accents
This is the first time we’ve seen the new Cadillac CT5 in green. To our knowledge, neither the Cadillac ATS nor the Cadillac CTS were offered with green paint, which makes the new CT5 all the more special.
This model is equipped in the Premium Luxury trim level, which sits above the base-model Luxury, and is parallel to the performance-flavored Sport in Cadillac’s Y trim level strategy. That means it comes with a host of visual details that set it apart from the Sport model, including a different grille treatment, red tail lamp housings, bright door handles, and bright window moldings.
In the corners, we see this Cadillac CT5 mounts 18-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels with a Manoogian Silver finish (production code 57R). The 18-inch rollers are wrapped in all-season, self-sealing tires.
We captured this Evergreen Metallic Cadillac CT5 on the lot at Sheehan Cadillac in Pompano Beach, Florida. Indeed, we think it looks quite good in green, with a rich, deep color for the body panels that stands in contrast the the bright treatment for the window moldings, grille insert, and 18-inch wheels. While most luxury cars these days come in white, black, or silver, it’s nice to find one with a little more creativity in the color selection.
Under the hood, this 2020 Cadillac CT5 is equipped with the turbocharged 2.0L inline four-cylinder engine (production code LSY), which produces 237 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. The four-cylinder mates to the 10-speed automatic transmission (production code MHS).

Love it! Actually, I love ANYTHING that’s not gray, black, silver or white.

That CT5 in this green color is beautiful. Want that color for my ’67 Riviera
Love the CT5 and how it looks. Want a coupe version.
“+1” for a CT5 Coupe model–it would look stunning in Evergreen Metallic with the Sauterne Sauvage “Platinum” interior. Bonus for a little more unique design cues. It will sell, if they just build it!
Evergreen metallic is a very nice color. But here in Southern Nevada the sun gets very hot. How about some light colors, other than stark White, like Lime Green or Sky Blue to keep the car cool in the hot sun.
I have a cT5 in metallic wave. Many positive cudos. I also am tired of black, siver, and white family
I guess the Cad people in Detroit must read this column. They just announced the Diamond Sky (blue) edition.

Did you ever see the 2017 CT6 in what was called the Dark Emerald Metallic? I selected the color when I viewed the paint sample panel in the sunlight at the dealer. My 2017 Prem Lux 3.0TT was a true head-turner, and its color flopped from black in overcast conditions or at night, to a vibrant and beautiful rich emerald green. Cadillac discontinued the color after the 2018 model (I think), and I was very disappointed that it was no longer available when I came to order my next, 2020, CT6. I decided on the White Crystal Tricoat, and my Prem Lux is also truly gorgeous – and easier to keep clean to boot. This is the last model year of the CT6, and I lament the decision to discontinue it.

Great looking Evergreen Metallic.
Best looking production Cadillac (in pictures, anyway — pictures can be deceiving) in a long time.
But I still don’t want a 237 HP, turbocharged 4 cylinder engine in a Cadillac. Especially not in “the luxury brand’s largest sedan… .”
Wake up, Cadillac.
The CT5’s competition is not the Civic Si or the Subaru WRX, or whatever the latest little buzz bombs are called.
Cadillac’s largest sedan should be roomy, comfortable, powerful, and quiet, with competent and predictable handling.
It should be the best genuine Cadillac, not a poor imitation of something less.
My thought exactly.
I was at this dealer on Tuesday and saw this car because the color caught my eye. But my favorite combination is the white in sport trim.
Can you imagine if the largest Mercedes were the C class, the largest Lexus was the E series, the largest BMW was the 3 Series, the largest Audi was an A4….what a disgrace…..
The Buick LaCrosse was bigger, so is the Lincoln Continental, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, any Genesis, Volvo S90, Acura ILX, Infiniti Q70, among others….
Cadillac has truly lost its way. And now, rather than use the 4.2 liter Blackwing V8 in a Cadillac automobile, they are going to sell it to a foreign manufacturer to use in a sports car. What a disgrace, and a slap in the face to loyal Cadillac customers.
Use millions of dollars in development costs to create this engine, thn hand it over to a foreign manufacturer……
To be fair John the decision to sell the 4.2 has changed. They don’t know what they are going to do with it. That seems to be a common trait with Cadillac anymore. They don’t seem to know what they are doing about anything.
Nice car but I’ll take my Flagship of Cadillac 2020 CT6 AWD PREMIUM LUXURY 3.6 335HP 20inch spoke alloy wheels, supercruise any Day over the much smaller CT5, my CT6 leg room is phenomenally comfortable. Cadillac made a big mistake when they stopped production on the flagship(CT6) of Cadillacs. Don’t get me wrong, the CT5 is beautiful car but will not compete with Mercedes S series,BMW 7 series,A8, Genesis, the Lexus LS500, hell the Lexus ES350 is even bigger. Hopefully Cadillac will return with another large sedan in the future.
I have said it before, and am in complete agreement with the previous comments, Cadillac made a HUGE mistake by killing the CT6. I don’t believe that anyone at Cadillac has any clue yet how big a mistake this was. I don’t think anyone at Cadillac has any clue yet how many CT6/XTS drivers will defect to other brands. I’ve had ten Cadillacs (including two CT6s); when the lease is up, I will look at another brand. The CT6 is simply the finest luxury sedan any American company has produced in the last fifty years (ever?)! The CT5 looks elegant and handsome in evergreen metallic, but simply can’t be Cadillac’s largest sedan. I will not be forced into a SUV/CUV or a midsize sedan. By the way, can anyone at Cadillac explain why the elegant, almost white, cirrus interior color is offered only on the XT5/XT6 but not on sedans? Imagine a CT5, or better still a CT6, in evergreen with cirrus leather. Cadillac simply no longer knows (cares?) how to romance it’s products. Look at the light, almost white interiors offered by Lexus, Lincoln, Tesla and others. I’ve had a life long love affair with this iconic brand, but I think I’m getting over it. Makes me sad…
Glad to see the green color but I agree that Cadillac needs a big sedan powered by a V-8! Leave there 4 cylinder turbo to Chevrolet.
The 4 cylinder turbo is what sells the most in the luxury sedan spaces nowadays. That is the core sedan space. Cadillac needs to compete in those spaces to survive.

Hi, Alex, it’s Bryan Reilly again.
First, thank you for your courteous and well reasoned response … rebuttal … to a previous comment of mine, regarding the “feature vs. option” headline. No problem. We will just agree to disagree on that one and move on.
We do share a couple of things, though: an unabashed love of Cadillacs, and a penchant for witty comments. ( At least, I think mine are witty. My wife thinks I sound like a jerk. De gustibus.)
ANYWAY, it saddens me to think that you are probably right about “The 4 cylinder turbo [being] what sells the most in the luxury sedan spaces nowadays.”
I am old, and have trouble wrapping my no-longer-flexible mind around such a concept. As Elvis sang back in 1957, “You gonna see me comin’ in a big black Cadillac.” Or as was sung in “All American Boy,” “Drivin’ a big, long Cadillac, an’ fightin’ the girls off my back.”
My uncle’s new ‘49 coupe. The ‘55 limo that carried me to another uncle’s wedding. The black ‘58 Fleetwood that preceded the black ‘59, and my absolute favorite, the black ‘60 convertible.
These are the Cadillacs of my youth, the Cadillacs I imprinted on, and the reason neither Cadillac nor General Motors gives a rat’s tail section about what I think.
Sorry. Had to vent. Loyal to Cadillac since I bought my own first one (1964 six window) over 50 years ago, through good times and bad, and this is the thanks I get.
Not only do they not want my opinion, they don’t want me to buy one. I hurt their average age of owner.
What a “First World Problem” to have.
The evergreen metallic is stunning. I’ve had black cars for decades… but would give a serious consideration for my next CADIllac.
Showing us a headline offers little info. Showing us a picture with the car wearing the color AND the headline would be informative and an expected service.
My favorite color in Premium Luxury is the Garnet Metallic with 19-inch wheels. My personal preference is the V Series in black or grey. My understanding is that GM was working on a rear-drive platform called VSSR prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and that platform would replace Omega (CT6) and Alpha (CT5). Personally, I never understood why GM still has so many platforms when BMW has one rear-drive platform underpinning the 3 Series all the way up to the 8 Series and X7. I hope the information in this article is still accurate: https://gmauthority.com/blog/2019/02/gm-developing-next-gen-cadillac-ct6-on-future-vss-r-platform/
All this talk about the 4 cylinder CT5 reminds me of a Cadillac called the Cimmaron, and what the critics had to say about it.
You say the CT5 in Evergreen Metalic is available with all five interiors, but it is not if you order the Platinum package. Then it is only available with the Sedona Sauvage interior. A big mistake by Cadillac.
