Cadillac has recently doubled the number of SUV's in its lineup, but confirms its commitment to sedans with the detection of two fast four-door models.
CT5-V and CT4-V are high performance versions of the company's new medium and compact sedan.
CT4-V made its first appearance on an event in Detroit on Thursday night after the debut of CT5 at the New York International Auto Show in March. Cars replace CTS and ATS in Cadillac's lineup. Although very much meant to be a car's car, both will be available with Cadillac's semi-autonomous Super Cruise technology, providing a hands-free driving experience on the highway.
CT4 is a half size larger than ATS, and the CT4-V is powered by a 320 hp 2.7 liter turbocharged four-cylinder connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission, while the CT5-V gets a 355 hp twin-turbo charged 3.0 liter V6 and the same number of gears. Both are significantly less power compared to CTS-V and ATS-V, but GM President Mark Reuss suggested that even more potent models will follow.
The CT4-V and CT5-V are equipped with computer-controlled voltages, limited sliding differences, Brembo front brakes and are available with either rear-wheel or full-wheel drive.
They also have an electronic architecture that allows for updates of many of their systems, including Super Cruise.
The feature can currently control a car on a highway while using a face recognition camera to ensure that the driver is looking down the road, but additional capabilities are expected to be added at the time cars are sold early next year until yet. announced prices. Several common CT4 trims are expected to debut in the coming weeks.
