2020 Cadillac CT4-V: Mild V-Series model reveals ATS successor

The 2020 Cadillac CT4-V is not a director successor to the ATS-V, but it is (strangely) the first model revealed in the CT4 range, which replaces the ATS.

The CT4-V has a 2.7L turbo I4 engine with 320hp (239kW), a 10-speed automatic, limited slip rear differential.

And, yes, everyone’s pissed off because the ATS-V has a 3.6L twin turbo V6 with 464hp (346kW) and 445 lb-ft (603Nm), and was a true competitor to the BMW M3.

Standard features include revised suspension, Brembo front brakes, 18″ wheels with summer performance tires, 50/50 weight balance, mesh grilles, dark exterior highlights, quad exhaust tips, and a rear spoiler.

The RWD CTS-V has Magnetic Ride Control 4.0, while the AWD model has ZF MVS passive dampers.

Options include all season tires on AWD models, and Super Cruise semi autonomous driving mode for highways.

The CT4 rides on an updated version of the Alpha RWD/AWD platform that also underpinned the ATS.
