The Cadillac CT4 first launched for the 2020 model year, and it was originally believed that the luxury sedan would receive a mid-cycle refresh for the upcoming 2024 model year. Now, however, it seems as though this is no longer the case, as GM Authority has learned that the 2024 Cadillac CT4 will in fact not introduce an update.
The Cadillac CT4’s mid-cycle refresh will seemingly happen for either the 2025 model year, or possibly the 2024.5 model year.
Despite the delay, there are still a few interesting tidbits to we have gleaned about the upcoming Cadillac CT4 refresh. Chief among these is the potential for a round of powertrain updates.
As GM Authority exclusively covered in March, the refreshed Cadillac CT4 powertrain updates would likely only be applied to the “regular” CT4 variants, specifically the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels, as opposed to the sportier CT4-V and CT4-V Blackwing variants. As a reminder, the “regular” CT4 variants offer the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine as standard, while the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine is offered on Premium Luxury trim levels.
Later that month, GM Authority spy photographers captured a curious-looking Cadillac CT4 prototype wearing an EPA Portable Emissions Measurement System, providing evidence that the refreshed Cadillac CT4 will indeed introduce a few powertrain updates. Further changes will likely include new styling for the front end, including new lighting and changes around the grille, while the cabin will get a full overhaul that will also include new infotainment features.
For those who may be unaware, the Cadillac CT4 rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan. Although the 2024 Cadillac CT4 won’t introduce the model refresh originally expected, the start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 model year is currently set to kick off this July.
