Buyers of the 2023 Cadillac CT5 will have the option to outfit their luxury sedan with a new Blue Accent Package, Cadillac Society has learned.
The Blue Accent Package (production code PDL) is an LPO, or dealer-installed, package available for the 2023 Cadillac CT5 Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels. It adds an additional $3,295 to the overall cost of the luxury sedan, and includes the following content (relevant production codes listed in parentheses):
- 20-inch Low Gloss Black alloy wheels (SQ9)
- Blue Wheel center cap, LPO (5ZF)
- Black wheel lug nuts, LPO (SPY)
- Black wheel locks, LPO (SPZ)
- Decals, LPO (Luxury and Premium Luxury only) (5KB)
- Decals, LPO (Sport only) (SB9)
It’s important to note that the Blue Accent Package cannot be added to the 2023 Cadillac CT5 in conjunction with the following options (relevant production codes listed in parentheses):
- Exterior Accent Package, LPO (PDU)
- Onyx Package, LPO (PDB)
- Radiant Package, LPO (PDV)
- Bronze Accent Package, LPO (PDJ)
The Blue Accent Package is also available for the CT5-V but not on the ultra-high-performance CT5-V Blackwing. The aforementioned Bronze Accent Package is also new for the 2023 model year, adding a handful of bronze exterior accents to the luxury sedan. Also, the CT5’s smaller stable mate, the 2023 Cadillac CT4, is also available with the new Blue Accent Package, but the content of that package differ.
