Cadillac is in the process of rebalancing its sedan portfolio, which includes drastically lower prices than the previous ATS and CTS lineup. As such, the 2020 Cadillac CT5-V is significantly cheaper than the CTS-V it indirectly-but-not-really replaces.
According to Cadillac the CT5-V will start at just $48,690, including destination charges. In comparison, the CTS-V starts at $86,995; a near $40,000 delta between the two cars.
Of course, theres an equitable delta in performance between the two cars. The 2020 CT5-V has a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 with 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque, while the CTS-V is packing a 640 horsepower V-8 and runs with the likes of AMG cars.
Buyers will certainly be able to drive up that base price with plenty of options. All-wheel-drive, for example, costs an extra $2,600. Option packages range from premium paint to a $6,260 package that includes semi-aniline leather and other luxury goodies.
Interested buyers can head over to the Cadillac consumer website and build their own CT5-V now. The car is slated to arrive in Cadillac showrooms shortly.
