Cadillac CT5 Body Kit From Robot Craftsman Brings Aggression7
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.
On the interior, the entire 2024 CT5 range will include an overhauled cockpit that is expected to feature a large screen similar to that seen on the Cadillac Lyriq and 2024 Cadillac XT4.
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.

Looks good, just wish they would get rid of the ugly fake window trim. That’s what always ruined the car for me.
Ugly. This is the 2023 equivalent of 1985 fake convertible tops and those nasty fake spare wheels mounted to the rear bumper.
Was wondering when I would see Cadillac CT5-V body kits and effects, hope to see CT4-V body kits too.
This kits ground effects are a little bit extreme, good luck with potholes and speed bumps. IMO the V- Black Wing has just the right amount of sporty look while the V Series has the sporty subtleness of the Premium Luxury CT5.
I used to be a fan of custom mods, but this just degrades the car. It looks cheap imo. Would work well on something more akin to a Subaru BRZ. On a CT5, subtle is the key.
Cadillac has wonderful chassis engineers, but their interior and exterior designers are awful. Cadillacs must always be gorgeous to look at. They must be desirable and aspirational. It’s time to overhaul the design depart and give Cadillac the attention it deserves. While your at it, overhaul the advertising department as well. Hire people who truly understand Cadillac’s rich history.
Looks like the “aggression” in those pics is due more to the lowered stance than the body kit. Save yourself $6k and just cut a coil or two off each of the four corners and you’re good to go! 😄
