Cadillac unveils CT4-V, CT5-V models

DUBAI, June 2, 2019

Cadillac, a leading automotive manufacturer, recently unveiled the first 2020 CT4-V and CT5-V cars, expanding choices for the brand’s V-Series performance sub-brand.

Brandon Vivian, Cadillac executive chief engineer, said: “The new V-Series sedan lineup defines modern sophistication by combining luxury appointments with thoughtful technology and athletic refinement for the discerning enthusiast.”

“We are inviting even more customers into the V-Series family by adding a new level of elevated performance between our Sport models and the ultimate, high-performance track capability that the V-Series has grown to represent,” he added.

The CT4 and recently introduced CT5 represent Cadillac’s realigned sedan portfolio, characterised by new proportions, innovative technologies and more appearance and performance choices. Each is built on Cadillac’s award-winning rear-wheel-drive Alpha architecture, with the V-Series models developed to deliver the ultimate blend of performance, presence and road-going refinement.

Both are available in RWD or AWD and share the latest standard V-Series performance technologies, including Magnetic Ride Control 4.0, which is tuned specifically for V models to enhance comfort without sacrificing performance-oriented responsiveness, and drive modes that include new V-Mode personalisation.

Each model features a 10-speed automatic transmission, Brembo front brakes with eBoost electronic assist and a limited-slip rear differential on CT4-V and electronic limited slip differential on CT5-V.

Cadillac’s exclusive Super Cruise1, the first true hands-free driver assistance feature for the freeway, is available on more than 130,000 miles of limited-access freeways in the US and Canada. It will be available on both new V-Series models. 

Mark Reuss, GM president, said: “The new lineup expands the V-Series ethos, drawing more customers into the Cadillac Performance family. The newest Vs are focused on elevated athleticism and luxurious refinement for customers wanting a dynamic daily drive.”

The CT5-V builds on the precision-focused details of the new luxury sedan introduced earlier this year to offer elevated road performance and an engaging driving experience. It is powered by Cadillac’s high-output 3.0L Twin Turbo V6 engine, which uses low-inertia turbochargers to enhance power production across the rpm band. It is rated at a Cadillac-estimated 355 horsepower (265 kW), pending SAE certification. 10-speed automatic transmission. Electronic limited-slip rear differential.

The vehicle also displays standard RWD and available AWD; V-Series performance chassis with Magnetic Ride Control 4.0; performance traction management; vehicle control mode with customizable V-Mode; Brembo front braking system; 19-inch wheels and summer-only performance tires2 (all-season tires available with AWD); Dark exterior accents and V-Series mesh grilles; unique rear diffuser and quad exhaust tips; Super Cruise1 available; Unique performance persona instrument cluster and V-Mode steering wheel control.

The CT4-V model blends nimble handling and Cadillac’s signature technology. The vehicle takes these traits further, infusing the brand’s racing DNA for a dynamic, responsive and exhilarating driving experience.

The features include:
