Performance: The 5 Series Outdoes the CT6

BMW 5 Series Engine SpecsFor unmistakable authority over the road, the 2021 5 Series and the 2020 CT6 serve up some serious power. With performance-tuned engines available, you’ll be in a league of your own when you get behind the wheel.

The Cadillac CT6 offers an available V8 that produces 500 horsepower on the Platinum trim level as well as 550 horsepower on the CT6-V trim level. The 5 Series serves up impressive power of its own with an available BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8.

Expect even more power from this M-powered variant of the 5 Series. It offers 523 horsepower in the M550i xDrive Sedan or 600 horsepower in the M5 Sedan, combining racing flair with everyday drivability.


PHEV: 5 Series Arrives in the Modern World  

Today’s drivers want a more environmentally friendly way to feel the thrill of the everyday drive. Here, the BMW 5 Series outshines the Cadillac CT6 by offering a plug-in hybrid electric version (PHEV).

Choose the BMW 530e plug-in hybrid, and you can lead the charge with an all-electric driving range of 21 miles! It makes this 5 Series ideal for emissions-free driving on shorter commutes. You won’t have a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle option from the Cadillac CT6.

In fact, the CT6 earns just an EPA-estimated 21 combined city/highway MPG. While 2021 EPA figures are not yet available for the BMW 530e plug-in hybrid, it earned 69 combined MPGe in all-electric mode for the previous model year.


BMW 5 Series and Cadillac CT6: Enter Inside   

BMW 5 Series InteriorThe measure of a car’s luxury status can only be taken when you slide into the cabin. The 2021 5 Series and the 2020 CT6 certainly feature high-end materials, but the BMW feels a bit more modern in its approach to style.

Though both models make leather-appointed seats available, the BMW 5 Series has more options as far as wood and metal finishes. A few of them include:

  • Fineline Ridge Wood
  • Grey Poplar Wood
  • Aluminum Rhombicle Smoke Grey

Every time you reach for the gear shifter or iDrive Controller in the BMW, you’ll touch available ceramic controls. With their deep black glazed finish, they offer a custom look you won’t find in the Cadillac.


BMW 5 Series and Cadillac CT6: The Verdict

Between the 2021 BMW 5 Series and the 2020 Cadillac CT6, which one takes the lead? The BMW is more modern with more refined powertrains and cabin space than the discontinued Cadillac.
