There are three trims in the 2022 Cadillac CT5 lineup: Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport. A ten-speed automatic transmission, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 237 hp, and a choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive are common to all models. However, the Premium Luxury offers the additional option of a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with 335 hp.
Luxury trim means 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, and LED tail lights on the outside. Inside, this trim has leatherette upholstery, a 12-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, a ten-way electrically adjustable passenger seat, keyless entry, a digital compass, remote start, dual-zone climate control, and a manually tilting/telescoping leather-trimmed steering wheel. The CUE infotainment system has a ten-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM, HD Radio, three USB ports, an SD-card reader, wireless phone charging, and a nine-speaker audio system. Safety fare includes eight airbags, rain-sensing wipers, forward-collision alert, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection.
The Premium Luxury has different 18-inch alloy wheels and illuminated chrome door handles. Inside, it gains leather upholstery, 14-way electrically adjustable front seats with driver’s memory settings, and ambient lighting. Additional safety features include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, lane-change alert, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors.
The Sport trim has more sporty styling with 19-inch alloy wheels, black exterior accents, a rear spoiler, and darkened tail-light lenses. Inside, it reverts to the Luxury’s leatherette upholstery, but gets power front seatback bolsters, magnesium shift paddles, alloy sport pedals, and a thick-rim steering wheel.
