Cadillac CT4 Turbo Engine, Trim Level Details Revealed

Cadillac today published technical specifications and trim level details for the CT4 compact sedan set to go on sale later this year as a 2020 model.

Trim packages will include Luxury, Premium Luxury, Sport, and V-Series. These are in addition to the performance-tuned CT4-V that Cadillac revealed earlier this year.

The CT4's all-turbo engine lineup will begin with a 2.0L four-cylinder making 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It will be standard in Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trims, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

CT4's other engine is a 2.7L turbo four good for 309 hp and 348 lb-ft and optional in Premium Luxury and Sport trims and standard in V-Series. 2.7L cars also get a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Both engines will come standard with rear-wheel drive that can be optioned to AWD.

The CT4-V uses the 2.7L and 10-speed too, but in a more aggressive tune that cranks out 325 hp and 380 lb-ft.

Cadillac says all CT4 models will come standard with passive keyless entry, a heated and leather-trimmed steering wheel, LED interior lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, and active noise cancellation.

Premium Luxury, Sport, and V-Series trims add forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic braking, rear park assist, and auto-dimming mirrors. All three can be optioned with front park assist, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, head-up display, and rear pedestrian alert with rear automatic braking.

Starting in calendar year 2020, Cadillac says the CT4 will add GM's Super Cruise driver-assist system. Cadillac will publish CT4 pricing closer to the start of production at GM's Lansing Grand River factory.
