All units of the 2022 Cadillac CT5 that would normally be equipped with heated front seats and ventilated front seats will once again include these features, according to GM Authority sources.
These features were previously under constraint for the 2022 Cadillac CT5 since March 14th production as a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage. Now, however, those constraints have been lifted as of May 1st production. That said, the ventilated seat blower motors are still under constraint, which means that affected units of the 2022 Cadillac CT5 will not have functioning ventilated seats, even when equipped with the ventilated front seat module that is no longer under constraint.
For Luxury trim levels, the 2022 Cadillac CT5 offers heated front seats (RPO code KA1) with the Cold Weather Package (RPO code Y19), while Premium Luxury trims offer the feature with the Platinum Package (RPO code PCJ) and Climate Package (RPO code Y6F). Meanwhile, the Sport trim level offers the feature with the Platinum Package (RPO code PCJ), Cold Weather Package (RPO code Y19), and Climate Package (RPO code Y6F).
As for the ventilated front seats feature (RPO code KU9), the 2022 Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels offer the feature with the Platinum Package (RPO code PCJ) and Climate Package (RPO code Y6F), while the 2022 Cadillac CT5 Luxury trim level does not offer ventilated front seats.
As usual, units of the 2022 Cadillac CT5 that would normally include these features but do not as a result of the constraint will be identified as such by their window sticker. For affected models, these features will be eligible for a retrofit later this year.
As for the greasy bits under the hood, the 2022 Cadillac CT5 is offered with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine and twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine. Both powerplants mate to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission. Under the body panels, the Cadillac CT5 rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform, while production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
