GM introduced the Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 luxury sedans for the 2020 model year, with the forthcoming 2024 model year set to usher in a full model refresh for both luxury nameplates. Now, GM Authority is hearing rumblings that the refreshed 2024 Cadillac CT4 and refreshed 2024 Cadillac CT5 may both introduce powertrain updates.
These powertrain updates would be applied to the “regular” variants of both sedan nameplates, including Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels.
As a reminder, for the 2020 through 2023 model years, both the Cadillac CT4 and the Cadillac CT5 offer the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine as standard, with output rated at 237 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm. Cadillac CT4 units are equipped with the GM 8-speed automatic transmission, while Cadillac CT5 units are equipped with the GM 10-speed automatic transmission. In addition, the Cadillac CT4 Premium Luxury is available with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine and the 10-speed automatic, rated at 310 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 350 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm, while the Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury is available with the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY gasoline engine, rated at 335 horsepower at 5,600 rom and 405 pound-feet of torque at 2,400 rpm.
Looking ahead, the start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 Cadillac CT4 and 2024 Cadillac CT5 is expected to kick off this July, per previous GM Authority exclusives. In addition to powertrain updates, the refreshed sedans are also expected to receive styling changes to the front fascia, including a new set of headlamps and smaller changes around the lower front grille area. The taillights will also get updated, while inside, we expect to see an overhauled cabin space and new infotainment features as well.
