FRONT FASCIA AIR CURTAIN
On the CT5, Cadillac signature vertical lamps do more than slice through the night—they slice through the air, thanks to vertical ducts that channel air through the fascia and around the front wheels. This reduces vehicle drag by optimizing aerodynamic flow, resulting in an intelligent melding of design and functionality.
Athletic design and aerodynamic efficiency don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Cadillac engineers worked tirelessly to give the CT5 style that slips through the wind, rigorously testing every component that touches airflow and optimizing its shape, creating a driving experience that’s as exhilarating as it is efficient.
WINDSHIELD AND A-PILLAR
The orientation of the windshield and A-pillar isn’t just meant to emphasize the CT5’s performance prowess—although it does so handsomely. The minimized angle also reduces aerodynamic drag.
AERO DECKLID FORM
The sloping, fast-back shape of the CT5 resolves with this bold, aerodynamic decklid form, which was optimized to reduce rear lift and increase tire grip at higher speeds.
POTENT SOURCES OF POWER
Beneath the CT5’s muscular exterior lies the heart of its power. Or, more accurately, two hearts. The available 3.0L Twin Turbocharged V6 engine delivers 335 horsepower and an incredible 405 lb-ft of torque, which gives you that exhilarating feeling of liftoff as you press the accelerator. More efficiently minded? Choose the standard 2.0L Twin-Scroll Turbocharged I4 engine that provides a considerable punch of its own.
The advanced 10-speed automatic transmission is paired with the latest generation of Electronic Precision Shift, which replaces the traditional shifter with a sleek, console-mounted lever that shifts gears electronically.
DRIVER MODE SELECTOR
In the CT5, every drive is personal. Choose from four driver-select modes: Tour, Sport, Snow/Ice and My Mode, which allows you to set your own preferences for steering feel, engine sound, brake pedal feel and, if equipped, available Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension.
