The 2023 Cadillac CT5 is the fourth model year for the luxury sedan, introducing a few important updates and changes over the 2022 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that the Cadillac CT5 gets a new appearance package called the Blue Accent Package.
Representing the first time that the package has been available on the CT5, the Blue Accent Package (RPO Code PDL) is offered on the Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels, and is an LPO or dealer-installed option. Additionally, the package is also available for the 2023 Cadillac CT5-V.
Priced at $3,295, the Blue Accent Package (PDL) includes the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- 20-inch Low Gloss Black alloy wheels (SQ9)
- Blue wheel center cap, LPO (5ZF)
- Black wheel lug nuts, LPO (SPY)
- Black wheel locks, LPO (SPZ)
- Decals, LPO (Luxury and Premium Luxury only) (5KB)
- Decals, LPO (Sport only) (5B9)
It’s worth noting at the Blue Accent Package can’t be combined with any other exterior appearance packages on the Cadillac CT5, including the Exterior Accent Package (LPO, PDU), Onyx Package (LPO, PDB), Radiant Package (LPO, PDV), or the new Bronze Accent Package (LPO, PDJ).
As a reminder, the 2023 Cadillac CT5 is available with three engine options, depending on the trim level selected. The turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, is standard on the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels. Models with this engine are identified by the 350T badge on the decklid. The twin-turbo 3.0L V6 LGY is optional on the CT5 Premium Luxury, where it makes 335 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Models with this engine are denoted by the 550T badge. The CT5-V is powered by a higher-output version of the LGY engine, rated at 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel-drive is standard across all models, while all-wheel-drive is optional for an extra fee.
Production of the 2023 Cadillac CT5 began on July 11th, 2022, as GM Authority previously reported. Production for all markets except for China continues to take place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan, where the four-door luxury sedan is built alongside the Cadillac CT4 sedan, as well as the Chevy Camaro muscle car. Under the skin, the 2023 Cadillac CT5 continues to utilize the Alpha 2 platform.
