2021 Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury

It has been a long time since I've driven a Cadillac. Too long. So when I was given a 2021 Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury for a week I was stoked. Cadillac once touted itself as "The Standard of Excellence." And at least as American cars go it was.  It seems to me that today there are two Cadillacs. First and foremost, and probably the best earner, is the Cadillac  of  premium SUVs. Then there is the Cadillac that sees itself as an equal of European luxury performance sedans, hence the CT4 and the CT5. The CT4 and the CT5 look very similar and that's both a good and bad thing. Good because there's a familial resemblance; bad because there's only a 6.6" difference in length so at a glance no one will know which is which. In fact my wife saw a CT4 next to us at a stoplight and she said, "Hey there's a Cadillac just like this one." The CT5 is a good-looking car. The test car's Shadow Metallic (kind of a charcoal gray with a hint of blue) paint
