The 2024 Cadillac CT5 is set to introduce a mid-cycle refresh for the luxury sedan, with revisions that include a restyled front fascia and overhauled cockpit. Now, GM Authority has learned when production of the 2024 CT5 is scheduled to kick off.
GM Authority sources tell us that the start of regular production (SORP) of the refreshed 2024 Cadillac CT5 is currently scheduled for July 2023.
In case you missed it, here’s a rundown on the upcoming mid-cycle refresh. First off, the high-performance CT5-V Blackwing will not be receiving the updates, as they are reserved for the lower trim levels. Starting on the exterior, the CT5 will receive a revamped front fascia, which will feature a new set of headlamps and smaller changes to areas like the lower front grille to eliminate the current model’s “semi-smiley” aesthetic.
It’s worth noting that GM has decided to keep the controversial C-pillar “kink” as well as maintain the current model’s rear-end design. However, product planners and designers were considering revising the taillamps at one point in time.
Moving inside, the CT5 refresh will include an overhauled cockpit that is expected to feature a similar infotainment screen setup as seen in recent interior spy shots of the refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4, which includes a wide curved display that houses both the instrument cluster and infotainment screen.
As for engine options, the current powerplant choices are expected to carry over into the 2024 model year. This includes 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. The CT5-V also uses the LGY, albeit in a different tune, where it makes 360 horsepower. At the top of the performance hierarchy is the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, in the CT5-V Blackwing.
Under the skin, the Cadillac CT5 rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform. Vehicle production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan for all markets except for China, where the CT5 is made at the GM Cadillac Jinqiao plant in Shanghai.
