The 2020 Cadillac CT4 sedan has made its official debut, arriving with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive in base form.
General Motors describes the Cadillac CT4 as a vehicle that is “poised to appeal to a new generation of sport-luxury customers,” thanks to its “RWD proportions and an athletic design.” Like other vehicles in the Cadillac range, it will be offered in base-level Premium trim, along with upmarket Premium Luxury and Sport trims. The CT4-V performance model made it debut earlier this year and will eventually be joined by an even more performance-focused CT4-V Blackwing, as we reported previously.
The 2.0-liter base engine in the CT4 is from GM’s LSY four-cylinder line and makes 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. GM’s 2.7-liter four-cylinder L3B engine is also available on Premium Luxury models (in addition to V-Series) and produces 325 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. The 2.0-liter is paired with GM’s eight-speed automatic transmission, while the 2.7-liter is mated to a ten-speed. All-wheel drive is available on all models, while a drive mode select system with Tour, Sport, Snow/Ice and Track settings is standard. A customizable My Mode is also present in the drive select system, allowing users to pick their own settings for the transmission, suspension, steering, brake feel and, on all-wheel drive models, the front-rear power distribution.
Moving inside, an eight-inch touchscreen serves as the centerpiece of the cabin and is joined by a standard full-color digital driver’s display. Other standard interior features include keyless entry with push-button start, a leather wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, active noise cancellation, LED interior lighting and an HD rear vision camera. The CT4 also utilizes GM’s next-generation electric architecture as well, which enables over-the-air updates, better connectivity and superior security against cyber attacks.
Order books for the 2020 Cadillac CT4 will open later this year, GM says. It will be built at the automaker’s Lansing Grand River production facility in Michigan alongside the Cadillac CT5. Pricing and additional information will be announced closer to the start of regular production, so be sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more Cadillac CT4 news, Cadillac news and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
