5 reasons to buy the 2021 Cadillac CT5

1. Luxurious features galore

The 2021 CT5 luxury sedan is generously equipped, with standard features on its base Premium trim including simulated leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 10-inch touchscreen display, and a robust nine-speaker sound system for cranking out your favorite tunes. Keyless entry and push-button start are also standard on all 2021 Cadillac CT5 models, so there's no need to dig your keys out of your pocket.

2. Capable engine configurations

The 2021 Cadillac CT5 is available in two engine configurations, both of which are turbocharged for a little extra pep behind the wheel. The standard engine, which is outfitted on the Premium, Premium Luxury, and Sport trims is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder at 237 hp. For even more power, opt for the turbocharged 3.0L V6 (355 hp), standard on the range-topping V-Series trim and optional on the Premium Luxury model. Both engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifting and a comfortable ride.

3. Plenty of driver-assistance features

Depending on the trim you select, the 2021 CT5 is equipped with several driver-assistance features that can come in handy behind the wheel. The base Luxury model, for example, comes with forward collision mitigation. The Premium Luxury trim adds lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control as options, as well as a unique "Super Cruise" feature that allows for hands-free driving in some conditions.

4. Available all-wheel drive

It's not every day that you come across a midsize sedan with available all-wheel drive, but the 2021 Cadillac CT5 does just that. In fact, all-wheel drive is optional on every trim, regardless of engine configuration. Rear-wheel drive remains standard across the board, though choosing a used model with AWD will deliver some added traction and handling behind the wheel.

5. A trim for every driver

The 2021 Cadillac CT5 is available in four trim configurations, so you can find the option that best suits your needs. Whether you're looking for something relatively basic (such as the Premium trim) or prefer something with sportier features (such as a rear spoiler and magnesium shift paddles on the Sport trim), there's sure to be a CT5 for you. There's even the range-topping V-Series trim, which comes with adaptive suspension dampers and an electronic limited-slip differential for enhanced performance.
