The 320HP 2020 Cadillac CT4-V Starts At $45,490, Base CT4 From $33,990

Cadillac has high hopes for the 2020 CT4 and the automaker has announced the model will be priced from $33,990.

That undercuts the 2018 ATS Sedan which started at $35,495.  Despite being cheaper, the 2020 CT4 is larger than its predecessor.

In terms of equipment, the entry-level CT4 Luxury has a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leatherette seats and an 8-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay compatibility. Other niceties include a dual-zone automatic climate control system, active noise cancellation technology and a keyless entry system with a push-button ignition.

A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine resides under the hood where it produces 237 hp (177 kW / 240 PS) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. All-wheel drive is also available, but it’s pretty pricey at $2,600. However, the option also adds heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

Moving up to the Premium Luxury variant will cost drivers $38,490. It comes nicely equipped with leather seats, LED ambient lighting and textured aluminum trim on the center console. Other niceties include auto-dimming mirrors, rain-sensing wipers and upgraded seats that offer more adjustment. The model also has a host of driver assistance systems including Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Park Assist and a Safety Alert Seat.

The CT4 Premium Luxury come standard with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but buyers can order a turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder with 309 hp (230 kW / 313 PS) and 348 lb-ft (471 Nm) of torque. Unfortunately, Cadillac didn’t say how much the engine will cost.

Continuing up the trim ladder is the CT4 Sport. It starts at $39,590 and features a unique exterior with a black mesh grille, dark accents and special 18-inch alloy wheels. The model also has semi-transparent taillights and a body kit that includes unique fascias, extended side skirts and a rear spoiler.

The sporty upgrades continue in the cabin as the car has sport seats and a sport steering wheel with magnesium paddle shifters. Other highlights include alloy pedals, special aluminum trim and a Brembo front braking system. Despite wearing the Sport moniker, the trim is only available with the entry-level engine.

Last but not least, there’s the controversial CT4-V which starts at $45,490 with rear-wheel drive and $46,590 with all-wheel drive. It builds on the CT4 Sport, but adds a revised steering wheel and a Bose premium audio system. The model also has a wireless smartphone charger and special floor mats with V logos.

Of course, the biggest difference is under the hood as the model has a turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 320 hp (239 kW / 324 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. Other performance features include a sport-tuned suspension, magnetic ride control (RWD only) and a limited-slip rear differential.

The CT4 and CT4-V will be launched early next year and they’ll eventually be followed by a proper successor to the ATS-V.

    You know that’s…… not too good

  • Elpatore

    Poor Cadillac… I see absolutely no hope in that brand, but then again neither did I about Lincoln and look at them now…

    • dumblikeyou2

      Haha. That’s funny. The Lincoln thing. Like they’ve got it all figured out and there recent past is longgone history and they are actaully safe.

      • Elpatore

        No manufacturer has it all figured out, but Lincoln is really pushing itself into profitability with great products, so yeah.

        • dumblikeyou2

          No manufacturer has anything figured out in any industry, period. You said you had no hope for Cadillac, but you made a statement that makes Lincoln sound like it’s actually got long term hope because of a few badly needed new products that were far overdue. For these two specific brands, if you ain’t making big in China, you ain’t mak’n it. Lincoln is only starting to makes some waves there, but Cadillac is way ahead of the game there and they’ve been there for a few decades. They saw something that Ford did not way before. THAT is long term profitability thinking.

      Lincoln is doing better, but it’s all SUV based. A true luxury car manufacturer is not a one trick pony. Lincoln’s cars are completely forgettable and are at risk of being eliminated at this point. Lincoln is still a nothing in the luxury space outside of one maybe now two vehicles.


  • Merc1

    Doomed to fail before the first one is sold.


  • MarkoS

    Nice enough I guess, but no where near where Cadillac should be. These cars should have the passion of an Alpha Romeo done in an American way. The platform and the mechanicals are let down by bland at best design.

  • pcurve

    I kind of like it?!

    • Arct1c

      So, then why are you questioning your own liking of it?

      • Bob

        He’s not sure and probably needs some time to digest it properly.

  • Bo Hanan

    Dull and the car actually looks like it’s taking a nap.
    Caddy used car lots will be full of the previous generation of this car.

  • Gaugabuck

    Cadillac has no inspiration what’s so ever. They sedans look like they took inspiration from the first generation Chevy cruz. Cadillac would be seeing alot of progress if Hyundai bought them from GM.

    • Eric D

      I am with you and I would add low budget, chintzy, interior.

      • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

        Sounds right up your street then.

  • caddy45

    This is roughly $3,000 cheaper than the CT5. Why would anyone opt for this re-skinned ATS when they could get the CT5 for a little more and get a lot more car…?

    • performante

      Some people prefer smaller cars. Myself included.

    • it looks better.

      honestly i’m not sure why the CT5 exists… the CT4 and CT6 look good, and are different enough in size and price that the CT5 likely just eats both of their sales potentials which isn’t all that big to begin with…

      • Rick Alexander

        Cadillac is most likely trying to compete with Audi, BMW, and Mercedes with their lineup. CT4 = A4, CT5 = A5, CT6 = A6. Or… CT4 = BMW 2 Series, CT5 = 3 Series, and CT5 = 5 Series. I know… strange.

    • Merc1

      This is GM and Cadillac we’re talking about. They have NO CLUE as to what they’re doing, none.


  • carlbolt

    “leather-wrapped steering wheel”

    Is worth to mention it for cars in this class, or isn’t?

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      No, it isn’t.

      I’m surprised they don’t mention power windows and floor mats.

  • TheBelltower

    For most people to even bother to consider Cadillac, Cadillac needs to overdeliver. This isn’t good enough.

  • SteersUright

    They’re going to be very lucky to sell any of these without absolutely massive incentives. What a poor effort from Cadillac. What the heck is going on with them?

    • john1168

      Seems like they’re doing the bare minimum these days…

  • carsmofo

    That whole dashboard/infotainment design has a lot of inspiration from 2014 BMW. They really need to try harder.

  • charlotteharry57

    It really doesn’t move the needle. At all. The biggest problem with the ATS (also with the M-B CLA, etc.) was rear seat legroom. Nonexistant. I don’t see much of an improvement. That’s why the ATS ended up being coupe-only.

  • Mikestroh

    That 2.7 Liter Turbo Should have been shared with the Camaro. Then the Camaro would have been able to compete with the Ecoboost Ford Mustang. I fail to understand the rationale at GM in regards to offering Great powertrains but not applying them to the appropriate platforms. Makes no sense to me. This CT4 will not fare well with the German Brands in regards to sales at all. It’s unfortunate but true. Cadillac needs to go a bit further and charge a little less in order to convince buyers to entertain a purchase. Currently there’s no incentive here.

  • Craig

    I wonder why they bothered making two such similarly sized sedans. The CT4 and CT5.

    • Because it’s how cadillac do…

      instead of making one do anything solid sedan they make 3 different ones…

    • krusshall

      186″ L x 72″ W x 57″ H
      195″ L x 74″ W x 58″ H

      Do you classify these two sets of vehicle dimensions as similarly sized?

      • Craig

        I certainly do.

      • Craig

        To go on with this a bit… I understand WHY Cadillac created the CT4 and the CT5. It’s obvious when you see the specs below. [I added the Accord and Civic for size comparisons sake] I just don’t think Cadillac can attract enough attention to their SEDANS to justify both models.

    Uglier and more dull than the car it replaces. Who would pay for this over the competition?
