Contrary to widespread speculation, GM Authority reported that the 2024 Cadillac CT5 will not be receiving a mid-cycle refresh, instead leaving the revision for the 2025 or possibly 2024.5 model year. With that in mind, the 2024 CT5 will still feature a few updates over the 2023 model year, one of which is IntelliBeam headlight option.
GM Authority has learned that the IntelliBeam auto high beam assist headlamps (RPO code TQ5) feature will now be included as standard fare across the entire CT5 trim lineup. Previously, this option was not available on the starting Luxury trim level, and was equipped as standard on Premium Luxury, Sport, CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing trims.
In regard to the eventual mid-cycle refresh, GM Authority spy photographs have captured several CT5 prototypes testing out in the wild. Notably, many of these vehicles have been covered in camouflage coverings to hide updated exterior styling. Thus far, it’s widely expected that the revised CT5 will be headlined by a restyled front fascia with new lighting signatures.
In regard to the current model, the Cadillac CT5 is offered with a wide range of engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine, rated at either 335 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque or 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque depending on tune, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque.
As for structure, the Cadillac CT5 rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan for all markets except for China, where the luxury sedan is produced at the GM Cadillac Jinqiao plant in Shanghai.
