Here's what's new for the 2021 Cadillac CT4 and CT5.
While we're still waiting for the CT4 and CT5 to get the high-performance Blackwing treatment, Cadillac has updated the luxury sedans for the 2021 model year with new tech, more standard safety features, and a new special edition model. For 2021, the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 can now be equipped with an available 12-inch diagonal instrument cluster. The infotainment system is also upgraded with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support as well as SiriusXM with 360L, which includes 200 live SiriusXM channels, plus on-demand programming choices.
An available rotary infotainment knob positioned on the center console also adds jog functionality, making it easier to switch between different menus on the infotainment screen. In addition, Cadillac's Enhanced Super Cruise with Lane Change on Demand will be available on the CT4 and CT5 Premium Luxury and V-Series trims in early 2021 and a Buckle to Drive safety feature now comes as standard.
This feature prevents the shifter from leaving Park for 20 seconds if the driver's seat belt is not buckled when the car starts. Other new standard safety tech includes Teen Driver, which helps young drivers "develop safe driving habits". Forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, automatic emergency braking, and the haptic safety alert seat now come as standard for the CT4 Luxury trim.
From early 2021, the CT4 and CT5 Premium Luxury trims will be available with a new special-edition Diamond Sky package featuring a new Diamond Sky Metallic exterior color, a unique grille with bright accents and surrounds, rocker extensions and a rear diffuser finished in Diamond Sky Metallic, and special alloy wheels with a Diamond Cut/Midnight Silver finish wrapped in all-season tires, Brembo V performance brakes with blue calipers. Centaurus Finish Aluminum trim for the CT4 and Galaxy Finish Wood trim inside the CT5, along with alloy pedals and a key fob with Diamond Sky Metallic accents and a colored Cadillac crest logo.
The CT4-V and CT5-V have also been updated for 2021 with Modena leather on the performance steering wheel, along with a standard leather-wrapped horn pad and brake calipers sporting the V-Series logo. Inside the CT4-V, the center console trim has been updated from aluminum to carbon fiber.
An available V Performance package for the CT5 Sport includes an upgraded performance suspension, Magnetic Ride Control and mechanical limited-slip differential. Brembo V Performance brakes are also available for the CT4 and CT5 Sport trims available with red or blue calipers. Finally, the Red Obsession Tintcoat and Royal Spice Metallic exterior colors will no longer be available for the 2021 CT4 and CT5. Replacing them will be two new exterior colors: Infrared Tintcoat and Rift Metallic, with the latter only available for V-Series models.
The 2021 Cadillac CT4 and CT5 will arrive at dealerships this fall, but pricing details have not been announced yet.
