Cadillac Confirms 2020 CT4-V and CT5-V Will Premiere On May 30

Cadillac has confirmed that it will unveil the 2020 CT5-V and CT4-V models on May 30.

A report from a couple of weeks ago indicated that these two new V-Series models were just around the corner and Cadillac has now confirmed them in an announcement regarding the 15th anniversary of the V brand.

We’ve known that the CT5 would receive a performance-focused V model ever since it was unveiled back in March. However, news that a CT4-V is arriving next week is a little bit of a surprise as Cadillac has yet to unveil the CT4 in standard form just yet.

Powertrain details for the two models are unclear. It is possible that Cadillac will decide to power the CT5-V with a supercharged V8 engine but there is also a possibility that the 550 hp, twin-turbocharged 4.2-liter V8 Blackwing V8 engine of the larger CT6-V could be used, albeit detuned to around the 500 hp mark.

The Cadillac CT4 is expected to be built off the same Alpha platform as the CT5 and Camaro and if that’s the case, General Motors will have a number of powertrains to choose from. The most likely choice would be the firm’s 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine pumping out approximately 450 hp.

The new CT4 will also be sold in a number of more approachable guises, including one with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 237 hp and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. A single-turbo V6 version with roughly 335 hp and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) is also a possibility.

    I’m very surprised that this is how Cadillac is introing the CT4.

      Wouldn’t be the first time a manufacturer introduce the high performance model first.

      I am too, and I like it. They probably should have introduced the CT5-V first as well, given reception to the styling. In fact, I think it was the reception to CT5 that pulled ahead these V intros.

      I want to like the CT5! I have a 2nd-gen CTS and am open to replacing it with CT5. I do think that the styling will have more “wow” factor in person vs. in pics. We shall see…

    I am very curious to see what CT5-V brings

    I still think this car would look better with a more “traditional” Caddy greenhouse.

    Here’s a quick photoshop I did showing just that, along with some other styling tweaks.

    Funny, my (ex) wife has the LSA V-3, with quad, no it’s octo, turbos. She seems to love it, good on her.

    Until Caddy says what they are doing and products drop I believe nothing. Haven’t checked specs on Blackwing yet but if it works in other vehicles then share the love. Then again they did kill Pontiac.

    It was known weeks ago that there would be a CT4-V. From this very site pictures were shown of the CT4 in testing that had quad exhaust pipes.
