As middle children go, the CT5-V should be a bit rowdier than most. Joined by the smaller CT4-V and larger CT6-V, the CT5-V rounds out what is becoming quite an expansive performance sedan stable for Cadillac.
The new CT5-V will be rocking a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that has 355 horsepower. It’ll be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive with an electronic limited-slip rear differential. All-wheel drive will be an option.
Like its smaller sibling, the CT4-V, the new car will have magnetic ride control, which allows the driver to change suspension settings on the fly. Completing the package, we’ll see performance traction management, Brembo front brakes, selectable driving modes, 19-inch wheels, and a unique digital gauge cluster.
The CT5-V can also be outfitted with Cadillac’s Super Cruise system, which lets the driver remove their hands from the steering wheel for extended periods of time on select highways and interstates across the country.
The CT5-V will compete against the BMW M3 and Alfa Romeo Giulia when it goes on sale in early 2020.
