Cadillac’s V-series is getting 2 brand-new members in the little CT4-V to replace the ATS-V and the medium CT5– V to change the CTS-V

Both get smaller turbocharged engines and less power than the automobiles they ostensibly replace, but that’s for excellent factor. For one thing, Cadillac appears to hint that more hardcore versions of the CT4 and CT5 are coming, however for another, the focus with these two has actually been on balance instead of straight-out top specification power.

By reducing the power and likely decreasing the rate in addition to that, Cadillac will definitely bring more V models to the masses.

Both brand-new V models will get the 10- speed automatic transmission, with power going to the rear wheels, though AWD will be optional on both. Significantly, both models will be tech forward, fitted with Cadillac’s new Magnetic Ride 4.0 and optional Super Cruise. These are all very great things.

The CT5-V will be powered by a 3.0-liter twin turbocharged V6 with an approximated 355 horsepower and a great 400 lb-ft of torque. This is down substantially from the CTS-V’s ground pounding 640 horses. It would seem that this is in fact more comparable to the last gen CTS V-sport.

Likewise, the CT4-V will utilize a 2.7-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, an adaptation of the Silverado’s brand-new 4-cylinder system. The new engine is estimated to make 320 horse power, and will spin up an appropriate mechanical restricted slip differential.

“The brand-new V-Series sedan lineup defines modern-day elegance by integrating luxury appointments with thoughtful innovation and athletic refinement for the discerning lover,” said Brandon Vivian, Cadillac executive chief engineer. “We are welcoming a lot more clients into the V-Series family by adding a new level of elevated performance in between our Sport models and the supreme, high-performance track ability that the V-Series has grown to represent.”

Both models are developed on GM’s upgraded Alpha architecture, which I have actually personally enjoyed in every iteration I have actually driven. With a focus on lighter weight (the CT4-V is a couple hundred pounds lighter than the ATS-V) and much better balance of performance and high-end, these designs will likely discover a broader audience for the V sub-brand.

While I look forward to seeing what Cadillac wants for its upcoming fire breathers, this huge four-cylinder CT4-V sounds like an absolute hoot to me. I’m interested to see how it drives.

“The new lineup broadens the V-Series values, drawing more consumers into the Cadillac Efficiency household, and the most recent Vs are focused on raised athleticism and luxurious improvement for clients wanting a vibrant daily drive,” stated Mark Reuss, GM president. “And this is just the beginning of the V family. Cadillac’s passion for efficiency shines on a racetrack. Stay tuned.”
