As of the time of this writing, The General has yet to release any specific details on the differences between the U.S.- and Canadian-spec 2025 CT5. In addition, it’s worth noting that this refresh applies only to the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels, as the particulars on the 2025 Cadillac CT5-V and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing trims are expected at a later date.
Starting with the exterior design, the revised CT5 features an updated front fascia along with a lower and wider front grille. On the sides of the fascia, there’s new signature lighting with unbroken vertical lines and stacked LED headlamps reminiscent of the design on the Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT6.
Meanwhile, the Sport variant integrates a performance black mesh grille with black surrounds. Paint options include the likes of Deep Space Metallic and Typhoon Metallic, both of which will be offered for an extra upcharge. Wheel sizes include 18-inch, 19-inch, and 20-inch options.
Moving inside the cabin, an all-new curving 33-inch-diagonal LED color display with 9K resolution steals the show, and features a customizable user interface. Technology goodies include Google built-in with Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play, in addition to OnStar and an available 5G Wi-Fi hotspot.
Standard safety features comprise of Blind Zone Steering Assist and Intersection Automatic Emergency Braking, as well as optional Traffic Sign Recognition and optional Intelligent Speed Assist. The Driver Attention Assist feature will be offered in conjunction with the available GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system.
Under the hood, the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5 features the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, as standard fare. The twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine, rated at 335 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque, is once again optional in the Premium Luxury trim. Meanwhile, the GM 10-speed automatic will serve as the only transmission option, while RWD will be standard and AWD will be optional.
Production of the 2025 CT5 will begin sometime in Spring 2024 at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan. Notably, further information and pricing details will be announced at a later date.
