The 2023 Cadillac CT5-V adds three new exterior colors to its palette: Argent Silver Metallic, Radiant Red Tintcoat, and Midnight Steel Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Steel hue.
Assigned production code GXU and touch-up paint code WA-138H, Midnight Steel Metallic is one of nine exterior colors offered on this performance-oriented variant of the Cadillac CT5 luxury sedan, which include:
- Summit White
- Black Raven
- Blaze Orange Metallic
- Wave Metallic
- Electric Blue
- Rift Metallic
- Radiant Red Tintcoat (new for 2023)
- Argent Silver Metallic (new for 2023)
- Midnight Steel Metallic (new for 2023)
The Midnight Steel Metallic color is an extra-cost item that adds an additional $625 to the sedan’s price and can be combined with all three interior colorways:
- Jet Black with Jet Black accents
- Natural Tan with Jet Black accents
- Sky Cool Gray with Jet Black accents
The 2023 Cadillac CT5-V arrives with just a handful of changes and updates over the 2022 model, including a new Driver Assist Package as standard and a new CT5 Bronze Accent Package. However, the 2023 CT5 loses the Diamond Sky Special Edition Package, replacing it with the new CT5 Blue Accent package.
The 2023 Cadillac CT5-V is powered by the higher-output version of the twin-turbo 3.0L V6 engine (production code LGY), rated at 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. The boosted six connects to Cadillac’s 10-speed automatic transmission, the only gearbox offered on the CT5-V. Rear-wheel-drive is standard and all-wheel-drive is optional.
The Cadillac CT5 is underpinned by the Alpha 2 platform, which is shared with the Cadillac CT4. Production began at the Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan on July 18th, 2022. Production of the 2024 model year will start on July 10th, 2023.
