Last month, GM Authority reported the content in the Driver Assist Package would no longer come standard on the Cadillac CT5 in the Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels, or on the CT5-V, for the 2023 model year. This appears to no longer be the case, with GM now deciding to re-add the Driver Assist Package content to the associated Cadillac CT5 trims and the CT5-V.
The Driver Assist Package was previously optional on the 2020 Cadillac CT5-V and 2021 Cadillac CT5-V, as well as the 2020 Cadillac CT5 and 2021 Cadillac CT5, however the content from the package was later made standard on the 2022 Cadillac CT5 and 2022 Cadillac CT5-V. Our intel suggested GM was set to once again remove this content from the vehicle in the Premium Luxury and Sport trims, as well as the CT5-V, but we’ve now learned it will still come as standard.
The Driver Assist Package for the 2023 Cadillac CT5 and CT5-V is tagged with RPO code Y5Y, and bundles together the following safety equipment (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Adaptive Cruise Control (KSG)
- Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (UGN)
- Reverse Automatic Braking (UVZ)
The Driver Assist Package is only available on the Premium Luxury, Sport and CT5-V and will not be offered on the CT5 in the Luxury trim in any capacity for the 2023MY.
Additional changes applied to the 2023 Cadillac CT5 will include the removal of the Diamond Sky Special Edition package, the addition of the Bronze Accent Package, as well as a revised exterior paint options list. The 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing ultra-performance model also launches the new 120th Anniversary Edition and an enclosed shipping carrier option.
As a reminder, the Cadillac CT5 is available with three engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, as well as the twin-turbo 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine, rated at 335 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque (or 360 horsepower in the CT5-V). The sedan rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform, with production take place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
