Though it might be tempting to look at Cadillac’s newest entry as another pretty face, the high-performance Cadillac CT5 far more than just a gorgeous design with a sumptuous interior. According to industry juggernaut J.D. Power, the all-new 2020 CT5 is amongst the top automotive models in terms of initial performance. In order to gather the information needed for the Initial Quality Study, J.D. Power surveys new vehicle owners about any problems they encountered during the first 90 days of ownership. Results are compiled by individual vehicles and organized into segments. Vehicles with the most problems receive a lower ranking on the chart.
Based on the data gathered by J.D. Power from new owners, the 2020 Cadillac CT5 ranked as the best-performing premium midsize sedan in terms of initial quality. The XT5’s performance during its first year of availability is notable, as it is typical for brand-new models to experience more quality issues than older models.
The XT5 wasn’t the only Cadillac vehicle that demonstrated superior initial quality compared to its luxury peers. The Cadillac Escalade, CT6, and XT4 also topped the Initial Quality Study for their respective segments.
Given that few updates are expected for the 2021 CT5, we expect similar performance from the luxury sedan next year.
