The 2022 Cadillac CT4 is the third model year of the luxury sedan nameplate, introducing just a handful of changes over the 2021 model year, plus the all-new CT4-V Blackwing. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 Cadillac CT4 will no longer be available with a certain exterior paint option.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2022 Cadillac CT4 is no longer available to order in Garnet Metallic paint. Garnet Metallic paint is tagged with paint code GLR, and was previously offered as an optional extra for Cadillac CT4 Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels. Pricing for the paint upgrade was set at $625. Garnet Metallic paint was not available on Cadillac CT4 Sport, CT4-V, or CT4-V Blackwing models.
The paint option has been “built out” for the remainder of the 2022 model year. It’s unclear at this time if Garnet Metallic paint will return for the 2023 Cadillac CT4.
Although the standard 2022 Cadillac CT4 is not terribly different from the 2021 Cadillac CT4, the CT4-V Blackwing is all-new, stuffing the luxury four-door with extra power thanks to the inclusion of the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine, rated at 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque. Output is sent to the rear wheels by way of either a six-speed manual transmission or 10-speed automatic.
As for the rest of the 2022 Cadillac CT4 lineup, engine options include the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm, as well as the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower 5,500 rpm and 350 pound-feet of torque in Premium Luxury trims, and 325 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 380 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm in the CT4-V. Both engines pair to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
