The Cadillac CT5 is already considered by many owners and enthusiasts as a sharp looking car. However, a new option in the form of a body kit from Robot Craftsman for those looking to dial up the aggressive factor of the Caddy luxury sedan is now available for pre-order.
Featuring five pieces – all of which are sold separately – the Robot Craftsman body kit brings more aggressive lines and scoops as compared to the factory bodywork. The kit is comprised of a front bumper and lip, rear duckbill spoiler, hood, side skirts, as well as a rear bumper and valence.
Two finishes are available, starting with FRP (carbon fiber reinforced polymers), priced at nearly $4,000. Meanwhile, the entire body in partial carbon fiber will cost buyers almost $6,000.
At this time, this Robot Craftman body kit is available for preorder only.
The Cadillac CT5 launched for the 2020 model year, and has been available with a wide range of engines. The base powerplant is the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. These models are identified by the 350T badge on the decklid. Meanwhile, the twin-turbo 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine, rated at 335 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque, is optional on the Premium Luxury trim, where it’s badged as 550T. The CT5-V also uses the LGY, albeit in a different tune, where it makes 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque.
The Cadillac CT5 and CT5-V will receive a mid-cycle refresh for the 2024 model year. The revised luxury sedan will feature a revamped front fascia with a new set of headlamps and smaller changes to areas like the lower front grille to eliminate the current model’s “semi-smiley” aesthetic.
And, as GM Authority exclusively reported earlier this month, the high-performance CT5-V Blackwing will also receive the refresh, marking the first time in V-Series history that the highest-performance variant will receive a mid-cycle enhancement at the same time as rest of the model range. The exterior updates will consist of a new front fascia and new forward lighting.
Power for the 2022 and 2023 CT5-V Blackwing comes from the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque. That said, this body kit is not compatible with the CT5-V Blackwing.
As for structure, the Cadillac CT5 rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform and 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.
