Caddy is offering up a new, optional upgrade for the 2021 Cadillac CT5 Sport called the V Performance Package. The new package includes select equipment plucked from the Cadillac CT5-V, adding a sharper edge to the CT5 Sport.
The new V Performance Package for the 2021 Cadillac CT5 Sport is tagged with RPO code Y43, and comes with the following content (RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 (F55)
- Performance Suspension (FE3)
- Mechanical Limited-Slip Differential (G80)
The 2021 Cadillac CT5 Sport V Performance Package requires the optional Brembo V Performance brakes (J56) and is only available on models with RWD. The package is not offered on CT5 Sport models equipped with AWD.
The new V Performance Package helps to bridge the gap between the 2021 Cadillac CT5 Sport and the more aggressive Cadillac CT5-V, adding in key performance goodies for the less-powerful CT5 Sport for those buyers who don’t want to take the plunge with the full V-Series model.
The 2021 Cadillac CT5 Sport takes up an opposing branch in Cadillac’s Y-trim level strategy, sitting above the base Luxury trim level and adjacent to the Premium Luxury trim. In terms of aesthetics, the CT5 Sport comes standard with a unique front and rear fascia, 19-inch alloy wheels, and glossy black trim bits.
Under the hood, the Cadillac CT5 Sport comes standard with the turbocharged 2.0L LSY I4 engine, which makes 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Customers can also opt into the twin-turbo 3.0L LGY V6, which makes 335 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Stepping up to the current range-topper, the Cadillac CT5-V, nets 360 horsepower thanks to a more aggressive tune for the LGY V6 engine.
Further details on the CT5 Sport package, including pricing, are expected to become available in the next few months. In the meantime, subscribe to GM Authority for more Cadillac CT5 news, Cadillac news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
