The 2025 Cadillac CT5 Sedan adds a stylish 33-inch screen and new headlights
- Cadillac revealed the updated 2025 Cadillac CT5 at the Detroit Auto Show, which will go on sale in the spring of 2024.
- The 2025 CT5’s new front fascia features a wider grille and more sophisticated LED headlights, and two new paint colors are also available.
- The cabin is dominated by a 33-inch screen, and the CT5 will also offer a 5G Wi-Fi hotspot and have Amazon Alexa built-in voice assistant.
Cadillac is heading toward a future centered around electric SUVs, as last month it revealed the Escalade iQ electric vehicle that will join the Lyriq EV in dealerships next summer. But the American luxury automaker is still giving its old gasoline-powered sedan, the CT5, one more update before its potential demise. Unveiled today at the Detroit Auto Show, the 2025 CT5 features a new face and a more modern interior with a massive 33-inch screen.
The CT5’s new look brings it in line with the recent refresh of the XT4, Cadillac’s smallest crossover. The narrow horizontal headlights are now connected to vertical LED elements. The main lamp housing is located in the curve of these two LED strips, and connects to a vent at the bottom to create a triangular opening in the bodywork. On CT5 Sport models, the trim is black and the grille is fitted with a black mesh. Two new colors join the palette for 2025: Deep Space Metallic and Typhoon Metallic.
The biggest change is in the cabin, where there’s a new 33-inch LED screen that spans the dashboard. As seen in the XT4, Lyriq, and gas-powered Escalade, the screen is curved slightly toward the driver and features touch capability on either side of the steering wheel. Keeping the 2025 CT5 updated is an optional 5G Wi-Fi hotspot and a host of Google apps built into the infotainment system, including Google Maps and Google Assistant. Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant is also integrated into the system.
The CT5 also gains more standard driver-assistance features for 2025, adding blind-spot steering assist — designed to prevent collisions when changing lanes — and automated emergency braking in an intersection. Traffic sign recognition is now available, and buyers can also purchase Super Cruise, GM’s hands-free highway driving system.
The CT5’s powertrains continue unchanged. The base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, while upgrading to the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 brings 335 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. The CT5 remains rear-wheel drive as standard but offers all-wheel drive and power steering through a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The 2025 CT5 will be assembled at the Lansing Grand River, Michigan, plant starting in the spring of 2024. Cadillac says pricing will come later, and we expect the new CT5 to start north of $40,000. Cadillac also hinted that updated versions of the performance-oriented CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing will be unveiled later.
