The Cadillac CT5-V Doesn't Want to Be A Performance Car - One Take
The Cadillac CT5-V, like the CT4-V, is no longer a true 'V' like monster-engined Cadillacs of the last 15 years. 'V' now replaces 'V-Sport' as the middle performer, with a new, unnamed product set to slot in above next year. The CT5-V is much like the CTS it replaces, but with more rear seat room, less of the miserable CUE interface, and a 10-speed automatic gearbox mated to the familial 3.0L twin-turbo V6. On paper, it seems promising, but falls well short in how it responds to driver commands.
Cadillac provided the vehicle, insurance, and a tank of fuel for this review.
