Cadillac CT5 - Consumer Reports

Current Model
The CT5 drives well, thanks to its taut and agile handling, and the ride is on the firm side. The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is responsive but noisy.
The uplevel choice is a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6. Both are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission that tends to delay upshifting, in turn making the engine rev more than it needs to. Rear- and all-wheel drive are available. Controls are easy to use, but it may take time to get used to the gear selector. The front seats are very comfortable, but rear passengers will find headroom to be short. Standard active safety features include FCW and AEB with pedestrian detection. For 2022 BSW and RCTW are standard. Cadillac's Super Cruise partially automated driving system is also available.
