It has now been more than a year since Cadillac unveiled the CT5 and CT5-V sedans to the world, effectively replacing the CTS and CTS-V in the brand’s range. Both cars were slated for the 2020 model year, and we now have a small but substantial detail for the next 2021 versions of the luxury sedans.
According to Cadillac Company, the next rendition of CT5 and CT5-V will get fully digital instrument clusters. This 12-inch digital display will also be fully configurable, as discovered by the Cadillac-exclusive news site.
Note the beginnings of the CT5 and CT5-V with groups of analog gauges which sandwich a digital display in the middle. It wasn’t too shabby for a sedan, but the nature of the nameplate as a luxury vehicle doesn’t match that functionality.
Cadillac will soon have a remedy for this, but Cadillac Society has stated that it will only be available on the Premium Luxury and Sport versions, with the base Luxury version not receiving the option. The latter will obtain the current group of instruments as the 2021 model year approaches. The new digital cluster will also be offered with the Technology package in tandem with a head-up display.
There is no information on the date of disclosure of the CT5 and CT5-V 2021 at the time of writing, but we believe this year will not end without an official announcement from Cadillac. In addition, other than the 12-inch instrument cluster, no other updates have been reported for the two sedans for the next model year.
Most importantly, we are still waiting for a more powerful version of the CT5-V, hopefully matching the trails that the CTS-V left when it left.
