The 2023 Cadillac CT5 is the fourth model year for the luxury sedan nameplate, introducing a few small updates and changes over the previous 2022 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that the start of regular production (SORP) for the 2023 Cadillac CT5 has been delayed by one week.
As GM Authority covered last month, the SORP for the 2023 Cadillac CT5 was originally slated to begin on Monday, July 11th, 2022. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that production has been delayed by one week to Monday, July 18th, 2022. Production will continue to take place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
The 2023 Cadillac CT5 introduces only a handful of changes and updates over the 2022 model year, including an updated list of exterior paint options. Three new colors were added to the list, including Radiant Red Tintcoat, Argent Silver Metallic, and Midnight Steel Metallic, while five colors were deleted, including Diamond Sky Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, Shadow Metallic, Garnet Metallic, and Infrared Tintcoat. What’s more, the 2023 Cadillac CT5 will not be available with the Diamond Sky Special Edition Package.
As before, the 2023 Cadillac CT5 will once again be available in the high-performance CT5-V Blackwing trim, which will also receive an updated exterior paint list, with Radiant Red Tintcoat, Argent Silver Metallic, Midnight Steel Metallic, and the limited Maverick Noir Frost added to the list. Satin Steel Metallic, Shadow Metallic, Infrared Tintcoat, and Dark Emerald Frost will be deleted from the paint list. The 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will also launch the new 120th Anniversary Edition, while offering an enclosed shipping carrier option as well.
Powertrain options include the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine, and, in the CT5-V Blackwing, the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine. Under the skin, the CT5 rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform.
