2021 Cadillac CT4 And CT5 Getting New Tech And Special Edition

Technology / Comments

Here's what you need to know.

The Cadillac CT4 and CT5 sedans - Cadillac's replacements for the ATS and CTS, respectively - are about as new as "new" as can be, making their debut for the 2020 model year. Yet already, GM's range-topping premium brand is rolling out a whole host of updates, introducing new equipment that could make the rich sedans more attractive to luxury car shoppers.

The list of additions even includes a special-edition package - the "Diamond Sky Special Edition Package" - with ritzy new interior trim appointments, a fancy paint job, and curiously, Brembo V Performance front brakes with blue-painted calipers.

We don't have any photos of the new Diamond Sky Special Edition Package just yet, but when it launches early in 2021, it will be shod exclusively in the rather lovely sounding Diamond Sky Metallic paint hue, with a Sky Cool Gray interior color scheme featuring Jet Black accents. It will also ship standard with unique Diamond Fall seat perforations and Galaxy wood trim, all of which sounds quite indulgent indeed.

Tech geeks have reason to rejoice, too, as the 2021 Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 will add an optional Technology Package with a configurable, fully digital 12-inch instrument panel. The addition is hardly surprising; digital instrument clusters are having a moment right now, landing in ever more passenger vehicles as time goes on. Still, it's a welcome addition.

And finally, we can confirm that the 2021 Cadillac sedans will offer Super Cruise, expanding GM's convenient, reliable semi-autonomous driving system that debuted on the now-defunct CT6 flagship. The system is also set to reach the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, which was just redesigned from the ground up to make use of GM's latest T1XX truck platform, but it will land in the CT4 and CT5 first.

That's all fine and well, but of course, the crown jewels in Cadillac's sedan hat will be the new, high-performance "V Blackwing" models. Sadly, there's nothing to report there, except that both models have reportedly been delayed by six months as GM recovers from the global pandemic. That could push their respective launch dates into 2021.
