Default 2020 Cadillac CT4-V

2020 Cadillac CT4-V Is Larger Outside, Smaller Inside Than ATS












Automakers typically introduce the standard model before rolling out performance variants, but Cadillac eschewed that tradition when they unveiled the CT4-V.

The standard model will be introduced in about a month, but we have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
Despite suggestions that the car would be smaller than the ATS, this isn’t the case. The CT4-V measures 187.2 inches (4756 mm) long, 71.5 inches (1815 mm) wide and 56 inches (1423 mm) tall with a wheelbase that spans 109.3 inches (2775 mm). This means the CT4-V is 4.4 inches (112 mm) longer, 0.4 inches (10 mm) wider and 0.1 inches (3 mm) taller than the ATS sedan.

Considering the wheelbase hasn’t changed, it’s not surprising to learn the CT4-V has about the same interior space as the ATS. Front seat occupants have 42.2 inches (1078 mm) of legroom and 38.4 inches (974 mm) of headroom. This means they lose 0.3 inches (8 mm) of legroom, but gain 0.2 inches (5 mm) of headroom.
The ATS’ back seat was often criticized for being cramped and those complaints will likely continue in the CT4. Legroom drops from 33.5 inches (851 mm) to 33.4 inches (848 mm), while headroom falls from 36.8 inches (935 mm) to 36.5 inches (928 mm).

The CT4 continues to ride on the rear-wheel drive Alpha platform and the CT4-V tips the scales at approximately 3616 lbs (1640 kg). That means the car weighs 243 lbs (110 kg) more than the ATS with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and 155 lbs (70 kg) more than the model equipped the 3.6-liter V6. However, we can expect the standard CT4 to be lighter than the CT4-V.
The old 3.6-liter V6 is interesting to mention as it produced 335 hp (250 kW / 340 PS). This is 15 hp (11 kW / 15 PS) more than the turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder in the CT4-V, but the new engine produces 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque which is a significant increase over the V6’s 285 lb-ft (386 Nm).

As for styling, the CT4 should closely echo the CT4-V. However, we can expect a less aggressive front fascia and a revised grille. The standard model will also drop the four-tailpipe exhaust system and V-spec rear spoiler.

We Regret To Inform You That The Cadillac CT4-V Has Just 24 More HP Than A Toyota Camry



There I was, just doing my job, writing about cars and whatnot, when I saw a sight that would haunt me from this point forward: the Cadillac CT4-V’s ghastly low horsepower number, which would have otherwise called for a quick glance and a disappointed sigh. But this time, my cursed brain contextualized the situation for me, and I wish it hadn’t.

My eyes, beginning their slow roll into the back of my head, stopped—fixated on the number in front of me. “Powered by a high-output version of the 2.7L Dual-Volute Turbo engine rated at a Cadillac-estimated 325 HP,” a Cadillac press release mentioning the CT4-V read.


“A Cadillac-estimated 325 HP.”


325 HP.”



Any other time, I would simply be reminded of how that number is terribly low compared to the outgoing CTS-V’s 640 HP and the ATS-V’s 464 HP—how sad it is, and how it’s a sign of our bleak times. But this time, my cursed brain brought up an association I wish it hadn’t: that the CT4-V, Cadillac’s new generation of performance sedan, only has 24 more horsepower than a regular Toyota Camry.


Cadillac did, after the poor reception of the CT4-V and slightly more powerful CT5-V, announce that V-Series cars offering a more “track-capable experience” would be on the way. The V-Series stands for “raw power at its most refined” in Cadillac’s own words, after all, and those cars aren’t exactly it.


But we find ourselves absolutely baffled as to why Cadillac didn’t lead with those cars for its new generation of vehicles, or just call this one a V-Sport, especially at a time when the brand feels increasingly lost.


And these new cars are not just falling short in “raw power.” The CT4-V has barely more horsepower than a current V6 Camry, which makes 301 HP and 267 lb-ft of torque. The rear-wheel-drive CT4-V’s torque numbers, at least, stomp all over the front-wheel-drive Camry’s at 380 lb-ft, meaning there will be an obvious improvement in how that power is used. The 301-HP V6 is also for higher-trim Camrys, while the standard four-cylinder engine makes roughly 203 HP and 184 lb-ft of torque.


But is that surface-lever horsepower number haunting, nonetheless? Yes. Is that also a sign of our humble Camry coming out of the darkness to embrace life as a sportier sedan? Yes.



It’s bittersweet. Hot and cold. Good and evil.
But the fact is that one of the current Cadillac V-Series models only has 24 more horsepower than a regular Toyota Camry, no matter their other performance differences. That would’ve been unfathomable a few years ago.



It won’t be easy to forget, no matter how you look at it.
