The 2020 names for the Cadillac made a lot of people braking their tongues and brains figuring out what’s about the new names and numbers.
To get here simple, this is the CT5-V 2020 model.
The CT5 replaced the older CTS. The CT5-V didn’t replace the CTS-V. The CTS-V had a 6.2-liter V8 engine (ZL1) while the CT5-V had half of that. Under the hood, there was a twin-turbo V6 engine.
The look of the CT5-V was slightly different than that of a CT5. For starters, the -V version had angrier LED headlights and air-scoops design inspired by performance vehicles. Like any other V series, the grille was completely black, with a black mesh and the big, Cadillac badge in the middle. Its entire presence was sporty. A set of Brembo brakes was fitted to the front of the car, and the red calipers could have been seen through the 19” light-alloy wheel fitted as standard.
Inside the CT5-V there was a big infotainment unit mounted on top of the center console. It supported Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The bucket-seats upfront provided good lateral support. The CT5-V was designed and built to compete against the European premium vehicles such as the BMW 3-Series, the Audi A4, and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Some interior details were special. For instance, there was a special pocket for a mobile phone. It was installed in the center storage space, but poking out near the center armrest. It had a split line on one side that allowed a charging cable to be attached to the phone.
For the platform, the CT5-V received new amenities from the latest Chevrolet Corvette. The Magnetic ride control 4.0 version from the supercar was installed in the CT5-V.
