2021 Cadillac CT5-V Interior At Night: Live Photo Gallery7
Earlier this month, we presented a live photo gallery of the 2021 Cadillac CT5-V with Rift Metallic paintwork, showing all kinds of exterior views. Today we move inside, and display the high-performance luxury sedan’s interior as seen during night time.
Three interior colorways are available for the Cadillac CT5-V. The one shown here is Sedona Sauvage with Jet Black accents, which is standard and only available on models with the optional Platinum Package. The leather could be described as coffee-colored, though this depends on how one likes their coffee. The other available colorways are Whisper Beige with Jet Black accents and plain Jet Black.
Black is the dominant color of the center console, though there are carbon fiber accents. This specific pattern of carbon fiber accents, by the way, is unique to the CT5-V. The Electronic Digital Precision Shift selector operates the GM 10-speed automatic gearbox, which is the only transmission available for most Cadillac CT5 models. The single exception is the upcoming 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, which has a six-speed manual box supplied by Tremec, although the 10-speed auto is offered as an option.
Ambient lighting makes it easy to see the door trim (in this case on the front passenger side). The lighting color is not changeable – white is all that’s available, though it does pick out the Sedona Sauvage coloring of the leather upholstery nicely.
In this shot, the ambient lighting can also be seen to illuminate the footwell. The carbon fiber-style trim inboard of the air intake is reflecting an interior light source here.
Controls for the Cadillac CT5-V’s hazard indicators, active safety feautres, infotainment system and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), among other pieces of equipment, are strongly illuminated.
The infotainment screen has been set here to show the commands for the V Mode system, which allows the driver to configure the steering, suspension, engine response, gearshift, brake feel, engine sound and Performance Traction Management (PTM) settings. The V-Mode can be enabled with the push of a button on the steering wheel.
In this much simpler setting, the infotainment screen simply shows the exterior temperature and the time of day (or night, in this case).
With all the lights switched on, the interior has an almost ethereal atmosphere as seen from the outside of the vehicle.
The Rear Camera Mirror provides a very wide view behind the Cadillac CT5-V. It can be set either to act as a conventional mirror or to display the view from the fin-mounted camera. It is not a stand-alone item, but is available as part of either the Platinum Package, which costs $6,290, or the Parking Package, which is priced at $2,090.
Finally, this image shows the back-lit Cadillac V-Series logo on a door sill. The logo is monochrome, and the quadrilateral elements are, as usual, inclined toward the right, unlike the right-angled elements on the Cadillac emblem.
The Cadillac CT5-V rides on GM’s Alpha 2 platform, and is assembled at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan. The only available engine is the turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY engine, which produces 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. This makes it the most powerful model in the Cadillac CT5 range prior to the arrival of the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing. The CT5-V comes with rear-wheel-drive as standard, but all-wheel-drive is available as an option.
The high-performance luxury sedan is priced to start at $48,990, including a $1,195 destination charge.

Gorgeous vehicle and gorgeous photos. I had no idea the CT5 looked this good… it has so much more style and presence than the German models.
I was already looking at the CT5-V to replace my M340i lease but this sold me.
Footwell lighting? Man that’s some cutting edge 2005 stuff right there. I bet it still has an aux input somewhere right?
In 2007 I bought a new 2008 Enclave that had footwell lighting. No big deal . . . right? Just like every GM product as far back as I can remember. Fast forward to about 2015 when I take my Regal in for warranty service. They gave me a really nice new Enclave, but was the MCE updated version. When getting into the car at night, I couldn’t understand why it was so dark inside. I then realized that the cheap [email protected]s at GM removed the footwell lighting for the MCE. . . unbelievable. Now they brag about things that should just be a given.
The CT4 looks better, dont like the rear qtr design on this Sedan. Always owned Cadillac but I hate all the black plastic and the fake ass Carbon Fiber. The cars that use alcantra is a huge joke on both the buyer and the seller.
I just bought a 2009 Lincoln MKZ 40k miles for $6000. Go buy that 6 figure CT5-V it probably will be the last V8 Cadillac you will ever own.
Will be worth about $40k as soon as you drive it off the lot. Better have great insurance cause one fender bender and it will be totaled out with all that aluminum and fantastic plastic.
I like it, a lot. Some of the early magazine reviews about the door panels being “too busy”, give me a break. One thing, is color keyed carpeting a thing of the past?
I really like the looks of this car. The only thing that bothers me is the Florida license plate. You know something bad is going to happen!
Please offer this car in Australia in RHD. This would sell.
