2023 Cadillac CT5-V Exterior and Dimensions

Cadillac CT5-V Exterior Design Rating

2023 CT5-V Exterior

Based on Cadillac's latest design language, the CT5-V gets sharp styling with narrow LED headlights, vertical LED daytime running lights, and a blacked-out grille to signify its darker intentions than lesser models. The front bumper is also reworked with sportier styling, and the side sills get gloss black treatment as well. Around back, quad trapezoidal exhaust tips and a body-colored rear diffuser finish things off, with vertically mounted LED taillights accentuating width. 19-inch wheels fill the arches wrapped in 245/40 profile Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.

Riding on an advancement of the GM Alpha platform, the CT5-V shares its 116-inch wheelbase with lesser trims, as well as an overall length of 193.8 inches. Body width is equal, too, at 74.1 inches (80.3 inches with the mirrors included), as is the overall height of 57.2 inches. Where the V differs from lower trims is in its weight, packing extra cylinders under the hood and added high-performance suspension, as well as a limited-slip differential. A curb weight of 3,974 lbs for the RWD model is approximately 300 lbs heavier than a base CT5. The AWD model weighs in at 4,144 lbs.

Exterior Colors

V-Series models get nine available exterior hues to choose from, including carryovers from the base car, such as Summit White and Black Raven, at no extra cost. Six premium colors cost $625, with only Radiant Red Tintcoat (replacing last year's Infrared Tintcoat) costing a more expensive $1,225. The less expensive premium options are no less striking, though, and we're partial to Electric Blue and Wave Metallic, as well as Blaze Orange, although the sleeper look is best achieved with hues such as Argent Silver metallic and Midnight Steel metallic - both new for 2023. Those are probably the best options, as they give the CT5-V a sleeper-car demeanor which better suits its demure performance. We'd rather surprise unsuspecting victims at the strip than shout loud on the outside and not back it up with credible performance.
