The Cadillac CT5 nameplate first launched for the 2020 model year, and while the sedan was originally expected to receive a mid-cycle enhancement (otherwise known as a refresh) for the 2024 model year, new information later came to light indicating the refresh will in fact arrive for the 2025 model year, or perhaps even the 2024.5 model year. The forthcoming refresh will apply the entirety of the 2025 Cadillac CT5 lineup, albeit with certain updates relegated to specific trim levels. Now, GM Authority is compiling everything we know and expect from the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5 right here.
Kicking things off with the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5 will be updated exterior styling, including new headlights, a revised grille, and a new lower fascia. The new lighting setup will feature thin signatures with a single, uninterrupted lighting line drawn from the top of the headlights down into the front bumper. The new lighting style will be somewhat similar to that of the pre-refresh Cadillac CT6.
Moving inside, the 2025 Cadillac CT5 will also feature an overhauled interior, with GM Authority spy photos revealing a new widescreen display that incorporates both a digital driver instrument cluster and the vehicle infotainment system touchscreen. The infotainment layout will be somewhat similar to that of the refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4.
The upcoming North-American Cadillac CT5 refresh is expected to include a round of powertrain updates, but only for non-V-variants, specifically Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels. The specifics of these updates are still under wraps, but for reference, the current non-V engine lineup includes the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine and the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine.
The refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5 will continue to ride on the GM Alpha 2 platform.
As was the case prior to the refresh, the 2025 Cadillac CT5 will be available in the U.S., Canada, the Middle East and China.
Production will once again take place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan. However, the Chinese-market CT5 is built at the Cadillac Jinqiao plant in the town of Jinquiao, Pudong, Shanghai.
