The 2020 Cadillac CT5 just made splashdown this past April at the 2019 New York International Auto Show, struttin’ into the luxury D-segment as a brand-new nameplate in the Cadillac stable. Now we’re getting a little further under the skin of this fresh four-door thanks to the arrival of the official Cadillac CT5 order guide, courtesy of our sister publication, Cadillac Society.
For those who may be unaware, the Cadillac CT5 order guide is the document that dealers use to order their vehicles from GM. In this case, the one for the Cadillac CT5 is over 40 pages long and comes with complete listings of every option, feature, and equipment package offered on the new model.
However, there’s only one engine option listed thus far: the turbocharged 2.0L inline four LSY, which produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The LSY engine will mate exclusively to the new GM new 10-speed automatic transmission. Models equipped with this powertrain configuration will carry a “350T” badge on the trunk, which is a nod to Cadillac’s latest torque-based naming convention, with the “350” being the LSY’s peak torque in newton-meters, rounded to the nearest 50.
Unfortunately, the order guide doesn’t mention the previously-announced twin-turbo 3.0L V6 that will be offered, and that will carry the 550T designation. It does, however, show the CT5’s triplet of trim levels, including the base Luxury and higher-up Premium Luxury and Sport trims. The designation is part of the recently-adopted Cadillac Y Trim Level strategy.
In terms of aesthetics, there’s a total of 11 exterior colors available, including:
- Crystal White Tricoat
- Velocity Red
- Red Obsession Tintcoat
- Satin Steel Metallic
- Summit White (which we previously reported on)
- Black Raven
- Evergreen Metallic
- Shadow Metallic
- Wave Metallic
- Garnet Metallic
- Dark Moon Metallic
Each of these exterior paint options is offered at an additional charge, with the exception of Black Raven and Summit White – the two non-metallic hues.
Inside, the 2020 Cadillac CT5 offers five color combinations, including:
- Maple Sugar with Jet Black Accents
- Jet Black with Jet Black Accents
- Whisper Beige with Jet Black Accents
- Sahara Beige with Jet Black Accents
- Sedona Sauvage with Jet Black Accents
For those eager to dive into all the nitty-gritty details, the full 40-page order guide is available for viewing here (in PDF format).
