Changes, Updates, New Features
The updates and changes described here are specific to the U.S. market and may be different for other markets.
The 2022 CT5-V model continues to be offered exclusively as a four-door sedan.
We expect the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V color palette to see the deletion of a couple colors as well as the addition of several new hues, though this has yet to be confirmed.
The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V is available with the following engine choice:
|Engine||Fuel||Aspiration||Driven Wheels||Transmission||Power (hp / kW @ RPM)||Torque (lb-ft / Nm @ RPM)||Axle Ratio|
|3.0L LGY V6||Gasoline||Turbo||Rear or All-Wheel Drive||10-Speed Auto (MHS)||360 / 268 @ 5400||405 / 550 @ 2350-4000||2.85|
The 2022 CT5-V continues to ride on the Alpha 2 platform, otherwise written Alpha II. The Alpha 2 platform is a General Motors vehicle architecture designed to underpin compact and mid-size vehicles with a longitudinal front-engine, rear-drive configuration. The platform is a successor to the first generation Alpha architecture, or Alpha 1.
It is the same chassis the underpins the first-generation Cadillac CT4.
The model is also assembled by the Cadillac China manufacturing facility, otherwise known as Cadillac Jinqiao or Shanghai-GM Jinqiao, which is located in the town of Jinqiao, Pudong, Shanghai, China.
Pricing for the 2022 CT5-V in the United States is expected to remain similar to the current starting price of the 2021 Cadillac CT5-V model, which is $48,690 in the rear-wheel drive configuration.
The 2022 CT5-V is expected to enter the market by the end of Q3 2020.
As GMAuthority was the first to report, the performance-inspired CT5-V model will not be sold in China, but may enter Mexico, Middle East and Russia.
The Cadillac CT5-V made its debut in May 2019.
