The 2023 Cadillac CT5 is the fourth model year of the first-generation luxury sedan, introducing a few important updates and changes as compared to the preceding 2022 model year. One of these updates, GM Authority has learned, is for the 2023 Cadillac CT5’s Driver Assist package, which will now be optional.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2023 Cadillac CT5 will offer the Driver Assist Package as optional for Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels. The package will not be available for the 2023 Cadillac CT5 Luxury trim level.
This differs from the way in which the Driver Assist Package was offered for the 2022 Cadillac CT5, which included the package as standard for the Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels. Prior to the luxury sedan’s 2022 model year, the Driver Assist Package was offered as optional for the 2021 model year, but the package became standard for the 2022 model year.
The Driver Assist Package for the 2023 Cadillac CT5 is tagged with RPO code Y5Y, and includes the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Adaptive Cruise Control (KSG)
- Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (UGN)
- Reverse Automatic Braking (UVZ)
Under the hood, the 2023 Cadillac CT5 (non V-Series variants) will be offered with two engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm, as well as the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine, rated 335 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 405 pound-feet of torque at 2,400 rpm. Both powerplant options connect to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive available to put the power to the pavement.
