2020 The Cadillac CT4 is here, with an all-turbocharged range, optional four-wheel drive, and the goal of attracting the "new generation" of Cadillac customers. Although meant to lead in the new generation of Cadillac sedans to replace ATS and CTS, it doesn't do anything you want to call radical, not so much as adopting a slightly more creative name.
Cadillac, specifically, said that CT4 was developed to "appeal to youthful buyers in the luxury market that may be new to the Cadillac brand." Kids, Cadillac comes after ya ̵
1; using the same approach it has used for many years.
Cadillac announced details of the new CT4 sedan on Thursday, and if you vaguely remember reading about a CT4 before, it was the stunningly underrated CT4-V, meant to be a substitute for one of the outgoing The V-Series performance cars, however, do not bring large enough power figures to do so. This is the usual CT4, which is intended for even less performance.
The new CT4 comes with a fully turbocharged assembly and standard rear wheel drive, as Cadillac announced, and AWD will be available on all models. Super Cruise will be available in the calendar year 2020, as Cadillac says, which means you can pay for it, but it doesn't specify if it will be limited to trim.
The standard engine is the Cadillac's 2.0-liter, two-wheeled turbo four-cylinder which produces a rated 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, and it will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. There is also a 2.7-liter turbo, which will be available on the higher Premium Luxury trim of the car and standard on the V Series. On the Premium Luxury trim it will make 309 HP and 348 lb-ft, while earlier this year we were told that it will make 325 HP and 380 lb-ft on the CT4-V. Models with that engine will get a 10-speed automatic transmission.
