The General also plans to use the same widescreen display in the refreshed Cadillac CT5 and the overhauled XT5 as well as in the sub-Lyriq electric Cadillac, as GM Authority previously discovered.
The display saw its debut with the Cadillac Lyriq, the first of GM’s vehicles to incorporate the curved, 33-inch widescreen LED display in its cabin design. The screen is a single piece, but is divided into three different display areas, including an instrument cluster section, a section for controls, and an infotainment display.
GM plans to use the widescreen LED display across the next generation of Cadillac vehicles, introducing it with the rollout of new models or as part of the refresh or overhaul of existing nameplates. The screen will be tailored to specific models, including the sub-Lyriq electric Cadillac, with different display layouts.
The automaker considers the size of the display as “a huge differentiator” for the Cadillac brand according to senior design manager for UI Bill Thompson.
In the past few weeks, GM Authority spy photographers captured images of a Cadillac CT5 equipped with the widescreen display. The display is expected to be introduced when the CT5 gets its mid-cycle refresh, making the 2025 Cadillac CT5 the most likely model year to debut the feature. However, its launch as a 2024.5 model isn’t out of the question.
Spy photos of the prototype 2025 Cadillac XT5 also showed a widescreen display in the works. However, this version of the XT5 will not be launched in the United States. The next-generation 2025 XT5 will be available only in China.
As a reminder, the sub-Lyriq electric Cadillac crossover was first revealed to dealers during a March 2022 meeting. While not officially unveiled to the public, GM Authority obtained spy photos of its prototype in road testing. These revealed a vehicle with exterior styling similar to the new Chevy Equinox EV and size comparable to the current Cadillac XT4.
