This week on TestDrive we're looking at the 2021 Cadillac CT5-V AWD and what's new for 2021 versus the first model year. Both this and the smaller CT4-V get small updated for this year including the option of Super Cruise Control, an updated 12" gauge cluster computer screen versus the 8" we have equipped and shown on ours, Launch Control, and wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. Pricing has remained about the same carrying over, but new colour choices are available for paint, along with packaging configuration.

We go over everything potential buyers would want to know about the 2021 Cadillac CT5-V AWD including how this new V model fits into the Cadillac performance lineup, whether or not this is a replacement to the CTS-V we drove a few years ago, and some thoughts on the upcoming CT5-V Blackwing and CT4-V Blackwing vehicles that should be announced later in 2021. We discuss the different options and features found on this car, and how our vehicle has been configured.

We then take the 2021 Cadillac CT5-V AWD on a comprehensive real-world road test to talk about how this vehicle performed, handled, and drove and how GM's Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 works compared with the German competition Cadillac is targeting. We perform a 0-100km or 0-60mph launch to see what the performance is of this 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine, and how the AWD system works.
