553 485 Megtekintés

Thanks to Constant Contact for sponsoring a portion of this video.
Today I'm reviewing the Cadillac CT5-V, which is the newest Cadillac V car -- except it isn't. First I'll explain why the CT5-V isn't what you're hoping for, and I'll take you on a full tour of the CT5-V and show you its quirks and features. I'll also drive the 2020 Cadillac CT5-V on the road and show you how it drives.

  • The 2021 CT5 has a 12” digital gauge cluster optional like the German competition so this will address that omission if that really concerns you. I mean even the 7-8” center display is already configurable enough probably for most people & that will be the standard gauge cluster screen now lol

  • This should be getting compared with the Kia stinger... idk why ppl keep saying the bmw, Audi, and Mercedes. It’s a bigger car. Built like the Kia.

    • Horse power and torque on the Kia and ct5 are similar

  • That trunk is too deep, they probably last-minute decided to not make it a hatch

  • the theme of this car is "this is reliable we swear! look we have normal gauges and a bunch of redundant switches!" (i mean im sure it is but its still a bit comical)

  • It’s a pretty good car for a starting price of 36k

  • I went to my local Cadillac dealer to look at these in person and to me and my friend we both said it looks like a Cadillac version of a Chevy Cruze. The panel gaps and alignment are awful. Typical GM in my opinion and the reason I don’t even care to drive one or ever own one. The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan I own and drove there to look at the Cadillac looks miles ahead of this Cadillac in terms of quality fit and finish.

  • Perhaps it's not the slope roofline that ruins this car. It's the C-pillar design - the combination of that squary quarter glass and the plastic triangle which make it the cheapest-looking, if not the ugliest Cadillac I have seen in decades. It's a big shame because the rest of the car looks really nice. The design team ought to give a press conference to do some explanation and convincing to us the potential buyers.

    • It would've looked better if the quarter glass was a triangle and the plastic triagle was glass.

  • Doug can you please review the c43 amg?! Would love to hear your input on that car!

  • Generally speaking, Cadillac is making affordable luxury cars cheaper than their rivals! Saying that, don't expect everything to be perfect in comparison with the others. It's a philosophy, and believe it or not I'm seeing a lot more Cadillacs on the street nowadays !!!! Guess its working!!

  • I love the car but 3 volume and touch screen knobs and buttons that’s too much 😭😭

  • I thought the ct5 was meant to line up with the 5 series/e class, while the ct4 was meant to line up with the 3 series/c class. Is that wrong?

  • Fucking car gets it with that twin turbo v6. I find that a lot of these guys that rate these cars are like movie critics. Go drive it for yourself and see movie for yourself. This car gets up and goes. I have one and added a performance chip and this car stays right with the 392 dodge and walks the 5.7 hemi.

    Ross ZirpoliRoss Zirpoli18 napja
  • seriously good looking car but the seats look like they're wearing white tank tops.

  • Once again, GM has shit Cadillac's bed. Was the CTS-V too good, too successful? GM? Nothing? You guys ever wonder why you've had to be bailed out of bankruptcy more than once? GM? Nothing? A committee will never make an automobile company work...ever. The best cars in history have been one or a couple of engineers having an idea. They've been drawn on napkins or talked about over the phone. Never a committee. Learn from the past.

  • Cadillac has had two different levels of V with the previous CTS series, no shocker here. This is better value than the more expensive version that will come out. Why pay 30-40K more for the big V when it will only change the 0-60 times by a half second or something?

  • Cadillicrap is a joke. Garbage Manufacturing should pull the plug and give up.

  • Here in Iran we call any Peugeot or Renault "fast" if it is over 100hp and 0-100 km time is under 10 seconds, and in America Doug says 360 hp is "not so powerful" and the 0-60 m time pf 4.6 seconds "not so fast"! Strange!

  • I wonder if they wanted to get a performance model out for the CT5 so they put this one out now. Perhaps the top of the line CT5's powertrain is shared with the C8 Z06 and they want to make sure that debuts first...just a thought...

  • Cadillac is really stepping up they’re game. This Cadillac is beautiful. I hope Cadillac in the future goes so far as to compete with other high end European luxury car brands and makes 12 cylinder cars with hand crafted detailed interiors

  • I don't know why everyone loves to bash American cars. Engine, horsepower, torque, etc yet if a German car has the same, Americans will act like it's amazing. Most BMW or Audis have a 4cyl Turbo, yet No one comments on it and acts like they are amazing.

  • Thanks Doug for breaking it down for me cause i love caddys but this isnt the one for me.. i appreciate it all u do brother keep it going💯

    brandon masonbrandon masonHónapja
  • Too much emphasis on horsepower when the majority of the time (in USA) you are doing under 80. What's the use of 4 - 6 hundred horses stuck behind a Prius in traffic. Oh yea 20 miles over speed limit is reckless driving.

  • The V-SPORT was a lot better which preceded this current V4 V5 series. BLACKWING is coming!

  • The V is for volume. That is why Doug, it’s volume focused 😅

  • I purchased a new CT5V and it is a nice car. My car had a MSRP of $64,390. I look at Kelly Blue Book and Trade In Value is $43,350. I traded a 2018 CT6 3.0 TT Platinum and the trade in is $45,725. The CT6 was a much better car. Not happy at all.

  • RIP to the V class

    john doejohn doeHónapja
  • I don't know that you always come out with the better version first. Look at the Corvette for example, that never happens. It is always Base Model, Z06, ZR1 with the exception being a Grandsport after a Z06. Also, what happened to V-Sport? I thought that was Cadillac's lower version of the V cars?

  • it looks like a big honda civic

  • What is going on with the designers in the US? They started all motivated in the front, but once they went passed the front wheel they seem to have lost every spark of motivation and creativity and went all pre school drawing. What's with the rear quarter panel? why is there a non-window window? Didn't you learn that, if it doesn't have a purpose, don't add it?

    Marc LalikosMarc LalikosHónapja
  • Button users are happy. Screen users are happy.

  • The rear quarter window looks exactly like what's on the Honda Accord, only the Honda's is an actual window which can aid in side/rear visibilit, whereas the Cadillac's is a cheap glossy black piece of plastic. This doesn't help Cadillac's cause here.

  • This review is buhloney lol. No mention of the magnetic ride suspension which is awesome. I test drove it myself and it is fast and sport and track mode are the truth. 0-60 means little when it comes to speed. What about 0-100? Anyway, considering TT power, mag suspension, track mode, brembo brakes, etc, this IS a proper V.

  • Love the car but the side/ rear end does NOT match the awesomeness of the front 😢

    Zach GoebelerZach GoebelerHónapja
  • These plastic buttons are mega durable, GM uses them on buttons you usualy use a lot to make them last, and they do not feel bad at all honestly.

  • The rear exterior styling is terrible! Ruins the look of the car. And in the white here, just looks cheap.

    David DaturaDavid DaturaHónapja
  • Don't waste your money on it. GM has gotten back into their old habit of making half-baked, overpriced vehicles.

    Andre ThomasAndre ThomasHónapja
  • I can't help but feel like Cadillac is getting desperate to stay relevant and competitive with other manufacturers. Most of their cars seem very generic and unimaginative to the point that I can't think of any car in their lineup that entices a consumer to want to buy from them over someone like BMW, Mercedes, or Audi.

  • I had the opportunity to drive one recently. I was very impressed. This car doesn't get the respect it deserves because so many people are ignoring great sedans in favor of crossovers.

  • "isnt good idea if you ask me" yeah ok gm engineers ask a youtuber whats the best idea

  • Ummm a lot to take in. Firstly...BMW and Mercedes throw around the M and AMG badge on lesser performing cars all the time? Unsure why Cadillac doing that is so wrong? Secondly, why are you so impressed with electronic gauges? Not like electronic gauges are anything more than a glorified computer monitor? Cadillac is attempting to appeal to younger and older buyers at the same time...hence the multiple buttons...older people like buttons they can touch...younger people are very comfortable with touch screens. Thirdly...the sloping roof...damn you complained about that a and I know that is for a sporty look...your beloved Kia Stinger has the same except it has glass to see out of versus the Cadillac is non-functional...I do not care about a hatch-back vs a normal trunk? Lastly....strongly doubt your butt dyno feels 4.7 vs 4.2's purely psychological because you knew the 0-60 times prior to driving them
