General Motors unveiled the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5 at the 2023 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, revealing an updated look, a huge infotainment screen, more tech items, and more standard safety features. That’s all well and good, but the refresh shown last week only applies to non-V variants of the Cadillac CT5, such as the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels, and not the range-topping Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing performance model. Which begs the question – when will GM show off the refreshed Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing? According to Cadillac chief John Roth, the answer is soon.
GM Authority recently sat down with Cadillac chief Roth in Detroit, and among the topics of discussion was the refreshed Cadillac CT5. In speaking with GM Authority Executive Editor Alex Luft, Roth was asked when we could expect to see the Cadillac CT5-V and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing get the same updates revealed for the Cadillac CT5 Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport.
According to Roth, Cadillac has “a whole lot more product stories to be told in the months ahead.”
While far from exact, it sounds as though an official reveal for the Cadillac CT5-V and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is just over the horizon. For those readers who may have missed it, the refreshed Cadillac CT5 Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport now incorporate an updated front fascia with unbroken lighting signatures running vertically down the sides, as well as a lower, wider front grille. The refresh also includes new exterior paint options.
The cabin space was also updated, and now incorporates an all-new curving 33-inch diagonal LED color touchscreen, offering a full customizable layout and 9K resolution. The standard safety features list include Blind Zone Steering Assist and Intersection Automatic Emergency Braking, while the GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system is optional.
As for the greasy bits, non-V variants of the refreshed Cadillac CT5 are equipped as standard with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, while the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine is optional. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
