The Cadillac CT5 initially hit the scene for the 2020 model year, while the upcoming 2024 Cadillac CT5 was originally expected to introduce a mid-cycle refresh for the luxury sedan. Now, it seems as though the 2024 Cadillac CT5 will in fact not introduce a mid-cycle refresh.
Details on the refreshed Cadillac CT5 have been trickling in since last year following an exclusive GM Authority report. However, although the 2024 Cadillac CT5 was originally expected to be the model to introduce the refresh, it will happen for either the 2025 model year or possibly the 2024.5 model year.
Back in March, GM Authority spy photos revealed that GM was busy testing the refreshed Cadillac CT5 on public roads, with prototype versions of the refreshed Cadillac CT5-V and refreshed Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing seen wearing camouflage covers to hide updated exterior styling. Chief among the exterior changes will be a restyled fascia with new upper lighting signatures that follow the curve of the front fenders and lead down into larger forward-facing lighting elements, as well as an uninterrupted lighting signature line that leads vertically down into the corners of the lower bumper.
Both of the front bumper and the grille are expected to be reworked as well, while the rear of the sedan will be unchanged over the current Cadillac CT5. Additional updates are expected in the cabin, where the refreshed four-door will present a large interior display mating a digital driver instrument cluster with the main infotainment screen.
Although it won’t introduce a refresh as originally expected, production of the 2024 Cadillac CT5 will still begin this coming July. For those who may not remember, the current Cadillac CT5 is produced at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan, while under the body panels, you’ll find the GM Alpha 2 platform.
