Cadillac CT5 Pricing Puts Increasingly-Rare American Sedan Ahead of Competitors
Pricing information has been announced for the all-new compact sedan in the Cadillac CT5. The starting price of $37, 890 gives the CT5 a head start on the major competitors, who all sit above that starting MSRP. The CT5 comes standard as rear-wheel drive, though buyers can opt to upgrade to and all-wheel drive for $2,600 (for the base of Sport trim), or $3,090 on the Premium Luxury trim.
The base models of the BMW 3 Series ($41,245), Audi A4 ($40,195), and Lexus IS ($39,585) all start above the CT5 base asking price.
A 2.0L turbo-four comes standard on the CT5 and produces 237hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. There’s also an optional 335hp twin-turbo V6. And of course there’s a V-trim level, which is set to be equipped with a 355hp version of the same twin-turbo V6. The standard safety options include forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, and automatic braking.
Cadillac’s replacement for their axed CTS and ATS sedans looks to be off to a good start. Time and sales stats will tell if this all-new compact luxury sedan can take a piece of the German-dominated segment.
