New Cadillac CT4 And CT5-V To Debut Later This Month

The 2020 Cadillac CT5 won’t be launched until fall, but it appears the company will introduce the all-new CT5-V on May 30th.

According to Motor1, the high-performance model will debut later this month and be joined by the CT4.

Cadillac has been tight-lipped about the cars, but the CT5-V could come equipped with the company’s twin-turbo 4.2-liter V8. The engine produces 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS) and 574 lb-ft (777 Nm) of torque in standard form, while it develops 550 hp (410 kW / 557 PS) and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque in the range-topping CT6-V.

There’s no word on what the CT5-V will be rated at, but it will effectively replace the CTS-V which had a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 640 hp (477 kW / 649 PS) and 630 lb-ft (853 Nm) of torque. This enabled the sedan to rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h).

If the CT5-V wasn’t exciting enough, Cadillac is also set to unveil the new CT4. Set to become the brand’s entry-level sedan, the car will likely ride on a shortened version of the CT5’s platform.

Engine options should carryover from its larger counterpart, so we can expect a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with approximately 237 hp (177 kW / 241 PS) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. There could also be a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 which produces around 335 hp (250 kW / 340 PS) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque.

Little else is known about the CT4, but previous spy photos have shown the model will have an edgy design which follows in the footsteps of the CT5. It will also be significantly smaller than CT5, but there’s no word on dimensions quite yet.

    No doubt the CT5-V will be a sexy beast. The only thing I could wish for… is a bit more of a concept car deign between the A and C pillars. The roofline and doors are too conventional and ordinary on a car that’s supposed to change minds about Cadillac.

      Bell did you go to the show? At any rate the car is a nice design, not on the level of the E but definitely a little bit above the C which is what it competes with in price range. However, I can’t stand that black thingy on the c-pillar. Like what is that?

      • TheBelltower

        I did go to the show! And yes, the Sonata was more impressive in person than I expected. Though I was a moron and went on a weekday at around 4pm. So schoolkids were everywhere and I didn’t get to sit in much. The CT5 is a really good design, but the side detailing is off.

        • donald seymour

          Really? I’m sorry to hear about the wrong timing. But yeah, that c pillar is something else.

  • Carlos Gamarra

    that’s cool and all, but to me, it doesn’t seem right to go for a crazy 640hp saloon down to “just” 500. But, i will say, it’d be interesting to put it up against the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

    • donald seymour

      Well, now they have a flagship, I guess? I don’t know. I don’t know what Cadillac is doing?

      The CT6-V has 627 ft. lbs. of torque. To me, this says the engine is likely on a very conservative tune. I expect this engine to have immense tuning capability. It could very easily make 700 hp.

    I’m assuming the pictures are for the CT-4 since it doesn’t look any thing like the production pics of the CT-5. And this CT-4 version may have a “V” after it due to the quad exhaust tips.

  • Harry_Wild

    Very happy it is RWD only! No AWD option available! Cadillac always does the CT5-V right! LOL!

  • SteersUright

    CT5 looks to be a handsome car. The CT-4 might as well drive from the plant straight to the crusher. Yes, its that ugly with that ridiculous side window design.

  • Bruce K

    I don’t understand why Cadillac is introducing 2 sedans when everyone is buying crossovers and SUVs. The CT5 looked horrible in person (at the NY Auto Show), due to its side window “design.” The naming convention is terrible too. When their CTS and ATS were not selling, why did they think they needed 2 new small sedans? And why is the XT4 underwhelming? Caddy needs a home run— not this stuff. 500 hp? Don’t care.

    The more I see pics of the CT5 the more I hate it. The interior is nice and I’m sure the mechanicals will be great but I just can’t get over the exterior styling. Especially the C pillar. To me the exterior looks like a cheap copy of something. Hopefully the CT4 looks better. Its C pillar at least looks WAY better than the CT5’s. I just hope the CT4 isn’t too small.
