The 2020 Cadillac CT5 has been priced in the United States, with the luxury sedan starting from $37,890 for the entry-level Luxury model with rear-wheel drive and the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
Prices for the 2020 Cadillac CT5 Luxury with all-wheel drive, meanwhile, will start at $40,490, representing a price premium of $2,600.
The CT5 Premium Luxury will start at $41,690 with rear-wheel drive, while the CT5 Sport starts at $42,690 with rear-wheel drive.
General Motors’ press release notes the CT5 has larger dimensions than competing products like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3-Series and Audi A4, whilst also undercutting those products in price.

“This year, Cadillac has introduced a new sedan portfolio that better differentiates our vehicles in terms of size, price and features,” the automaker said in a statement. “The first Cadillac sedan to employ this new strategy is the first-ever 2020 CT5, and we are pleased to announce that it will have a base price starting lower than its competition, without compromising design, content or performance.”
Cadillac is only sharing prices for the 2020 Cadillac CT5 with the turbocharged 2.0-liter LTG engine right now, with pricing for the 3.0-liter LGW twin-turbo V6, V-Series model and additional features such as Super Cruise to be announced at a later date. The automaker also says the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 is a “later available engine,” so it seems only the 2.0-liter will be available from launch later this year.
The 2020 Cadillac CT5 also undercuts the 2019 Cadillac ATS in price, which started at $38,995 for the 2019 model year. It’s certainly better value than the now discontinued luxury compact, with larger dimensions, more up-to-date tech, a 10-speed transmission, improved chassis and the same engine.
