The Cadillac CT4-V brings a balanced combination of poise, luxury, and performance, mixing it all together into an attractive four-door package. Complementing the combo is a dual-mode mechanical exhaust system, the sound of which can be enjoyed in the following exclusive video.
Like on all GM vehicles with the dual-mode exhaust system, that on the Cadillac CT4-V either opens or closes internal exhaust flaps depending on the driving mode selected. Tour Mode (as well as Snow/Ice Modes) closes the flaps, and Sport/Track modes opening the flaps. Notably, these two modes are not as noticeable outside the vehicle as they are on, say, the Cadillac CT5-V.
Either way, spent gasses are routed out the dual exhaust system via quad through-fascia tips, which also feature a squared-off design integrated with the lower fascia.
Meanwhile, inside the Cadillac CT4-V, there are three different interior sound enhancements on offer, which vary between the various driving modes. The sound enhancements coincide with Tour/Snow/Ice, Sport, and Track modes.
As for the powerplant making those internal combustion noises, the Cadillac CT4-V is motivated by the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B, which produces 325 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 380 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. Output is routed through GM’s 10-speed automatic transmission as standard, with both AWD and RWD available to put it to the pavement.
Offered as the penultimate step in the Cadillac CT4 performance hierarchy, the CT4-V is followed by the new 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing, which debuted back in February with the twin-turbo 3.6L V6 LF4 under the hood, producing 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque.
