The 2023 Cadillac CT4 is the fourth model year for the luxury sedan, featuring only a handful of updates and changes compared to the preceding 2022 model year. One of these is a new appearance pack called the Blue Accent Package.
Representing the first time that the package has been available on the CT4, the Blue Accent Package (RPO Code PDL) is offered on the Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels, and is an LPO or dealer-installed option. Additionally, the package is also available for the 2023 Cadillac CT4-V.
Priced at $3,495, the Blue Accent Package (PDL) includes the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- 19-inch Low Gloss Black alloy wheels (SPQ)
- Blue wheel center cap, LPO (5ZF)
- Black wheel lug nuts, LPO (SPY)
- Black wheel locks, LPO (SPZ)
- Decals, LPO (Luxury and Premium Luxury only) (RY2)
- Decals, LPO (Sport only) (5K2)
It’s worth noting that the Blue Accent Package can’t be combined with any other exterior appearance packages on the Cadillac CT4, including Exterior Accent Package (LPO, PDU), Onyx Package (LPO, PDB) Radiant Package (LPO, PDV), or recently-introduced Bronze Accent Package (PDJ).
As a reminder, the 2023 Cadillac CT4 is available with three engine options, depending on the trim level selected. The turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, is standard on the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels. Models with this engine get the 350T designation on the decklid as part of Cadillac’s torque-based nomenclature. From there, the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine is optional on the CT4 Premium Luxury, where it makes 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. These models wear the 500T badge. The CT4-V is powered by a higher-output version of the L3B engine, rated at 325 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.
Production of the 2023 Cadillac CT4 began on July 11th, 2022, as GM Authority reported previously. Production continues to take place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan for all markets except for China, where the four-door is built alongside the related Cadillac CT5 sedan, as well as the Chevy Camaro muscle car. Under the skin, the 2023 Cadillac CT4 continues to utilize the Alpha 2 platform.
