Thanks to Constant Contact for sponsoring a portion of this video.
Today I'm reviewing the Cadillac CT5-V, which is the newest Cadillac V car -- except it isn't. First I'll explain why the CT5-V isn't what you're hoping for, and I'll take you on a full tour of the CT5-V and show you its quirks and features. I'll also drive the 2020 Cadillac CT5-V on the road and show you how it drives.

There are no more V logos then we see one as a steering wheel button. .06 slower than the competition I think we are getting picky. I know this is an old video but shows 3 of these available new in the entire country now? Someone is buying them. Analog gauges for sure need to go. Tough to be fair going in so negative on this car.

Heard Doug talking about not having a full digital gauge cluster, I just bought a 2021 CT5 V Sport and you can now spend $1,200 to get a 12 inch gauge display for all 2021 CT5 models.

The problem isn't with the car The problem is Cadillac and their horrible market strategists They have lost their way, in how to position and sell their brand They still make really good cars, but their market strategy is so bad, you'd never know it.

The 2021 CT5 has a 12” digital gauge cluster optional like the German competition so this will address that omission if that really concerns you. I mean even the 7-8” center display is already configurable enough probably for most people & that will be the standard gauge cluster screen now lol

I went to my local Cadillac dealer to look at these in person and to me and my friend we both said it looks like a Cadillac version of a Chevy Cruze. The panel gaps and alignment are awful. Typical GM in my opinion and the reason I don’t even care to drive one or ever own one. The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan I own and drove there to look at the Cadillac looks miles ahead of this Cadillac in terms of quality fit and finish.
JT Πριν μήνα
Perhaps it's not the slope roofline that ruins this car. It's the C-pillar design - the combination of that squary quarter glass and the plastic triangle which make it the cheapest-looking, if not the ugliest Cadillac I have seen in decades. It's a big shame because the rest of the car looks really nice. The design team ought to give a press conference to do some explanation and convincing to us the potential buyers.
JT Πριν μήνα
It would've looked better if the quarter glass was a triangle and the plastic triagle was glass.

Generally speaking, Cadillac is making affordable luxury cars cheaper than their rivals! Saying that, don't expect everything to be perfect in comparison with the others. It's a philosophy, and believe it or not I'm seeing a lot more Cadillacs on the street nowadays !!!! Guess its working!!

Fucking car gets it with that twin turbo v6. I find that a lot of these guys that rate these cars are like movie critics. Go drive it for yourself and see movie for yourself. This car gets up and goes. I have one and added a performance chip and this car stays right with the 392 dodge and walks the 5.7 hemi.
seriously good looking car but the seats look like they're wearing white tank tops.

Once again, GM has shit Cadillac's bed. Was the CTS-V too good, too successful? GM? Nothing? You guys ever wonder why you've had to be bailed out of bankruptcy more than once? GM? Nothing? A committee will never make an automobile company work...ever. The best cars in history have been one or a couple of engineers having an idea. They've been drawn on napkins or talked about over the phone. Never a committee. Learn from the past.

Cadillac has had two different levels of V with the previous CTS series, no shocker here. This is better value than the more expensive version that will come out. Why pay 30-40K more for the big V when it will only change the 0-60 times by a half second or something?

Here in Iran we call any Peugeot or Renault "fast" if it is over 100hp and 0-100 km time is under 10 seconds, and in America Doug says 360 hp is "not so powerful" and the 0-60 m time pf 4.6 seconds "not so fast"! Strange!

I wonder if they wanted to get a performance model out for the CT5 so they put this one out now. Perhaps the top of the line CT5's powertrain is shared with the C8 Z06 and they want to make sure that debuts first...just a thought...

I don't know why everyone loves to bash American cars. Engine, horsepower, torque, etc yet if a German car has the same, Americans will act like it's amazing. Most BMW or Audis have a 4cyl Turbo, yet No one comments on it and acts like they are amazing.

Too much emphasis on horsepower when the majority of the time (in USA) you are doing under 80. What's the use of 4 - 6 hundred horses stuck behind a Prius in traffic. Oh yea 20 miles over speed limit is reckless driving.

I purchased a new CT5V and it is a nice car. My car had a MSRP of $64,390. I look at Kelly Blue Book and Trade In Value is $43,350. I traded a 2018 CT6 3.0 TT Platinum and the trade in is $45,725. The CT6 was a much better car. Not happy at all.

I don't know that you always come out with the better version first. Look at the Corvette for example, that never happens. It is always Base Model, Z06, ZR1 with the exception being a Grandsport after a Z06. Also, what happened to V-Sport? I thought that was Cadillac's lower version of the V cars?

What is going on with the designers in the US? They started all motivated in the front, but once they went passed the front wheel they seem to have lost every spark of motivation and creativity and went all pre school drawing. What's with the rear quarter panel? why is there a non-window window? Didn't you learn that, if it doesn't have a purpose, don't add it?
Barakat Πριν 2 μήνες

cintoman Πριν 2 μήνες
The rear quarter window looks exactly like what's on the Honda Accord, only the Honda's is an actual window which can aid in side/rear visibilit, whereas the Cadillac's is a cheap glossy black piece of plastic. This doesn't help Cadillac's cause here.

This review is buhloney lol. No mention of the magnetic ride suspension which is awesome. I test drove it myself and it is fast and sport and track mode are the truth. 0-60 means little when it comes to speed. What about 0-100? Anyway, considering TT power, mag suspension, track mode, brembo brakes, etc, this IS a proper V.

I can't help but feel like Cadillac is getting desperate to stay relevant and competitive with other manufacturers. Most of their cars seem very generic and unimaginative to the point that I can't think of any car in their lineup that entices a consumer to want to buy from them over someone like BMW, Mercedes, or Audi.

Ummm a lot to take in. Firstly...BMW and Mercedes throw around the M and AMG badge on lesser performing cars all the time? Unsure why Cadillac doing that is so wrong? Secondly, why are you so impressed with electronic gauges? Not like electronic gauges are anything more than a glorified computer monitor? Cadillac is attempting to appeal to younger and older buyers at the same time...hence the multiple buttons...older people like buttons they can touch...younger people are very comfortable with touch screens. Thirdly...the sloping roof...damn you complained about that a and I know that is for a sporty look...your beloved Kia Stinger has the same except it has glass to see out of versus the Cadillac is non-functional...I do not care about a hatch-back vs a normal trunk? Lastly....strongly doubt your butt dyno feels 4.7 vs 4.2's purely psychological because you knew the 0-60 times prior to driving them
