The 2020 Cadillac CT5-V is technically the standard CT5 – but spicier. It has some additional performance parts, and of course, more horsepower. The V-model comes with the standard features you would get in the CT5 -same infotainment system, same interior features- heated and ventilated seats , and so on.
Under the hood the CT5-V has a twin turbo V6 that produces 360 bhp and makes 405 torque – which is more power than the Audi S4 and less horsepower than the BMW M340i and Mercedes C43. Cadillac says that the CT5 will do 0-60 within 4.5 seconds, it is paired with a 10 speed automatic transmission.
For better grip, the steering wheel is wrapped in suede so you can have better control. It uses electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD), provides on-centre steering performance, and automatically directs power to the rear wheel with the most traction for greater control and faster curve exit speeds.
It is equipped with Magnetic Ride Control which delivers precise body motion control, reading the road every millisecond and changing damping in just 5 milliseconds, based on what Cadillac says.
In this video I am comparing it to another very popular vehicle, the 2020 Tesla Model 3, dual motor long range.
