Then again, Cadillac’s fiercest rivals have also had to make similar decisions. Hyundai’s premium brand Genesis recently removed various driver-assist functions from higher-end models while BMW has had to remove the popular head-up display from several models.
But even without Super Cruise, the CT5 is a capable and desirable luxury sedan. Priced from $37,295, it offers exceptional value when compared to its foreign rivals and, what’s more, is available as the hugely exciting CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing models. The latter is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, with 668 horsepower and 659 lb-ft of torque on tap. Enthusiasts will also be pleased to know it’s offered with a six-speed manual transmission as standard. Hopefully, the much-vaunted safety system makes a return for the 2023 model year.
