Cadillac Unveils 2020 CT4-V and CT5-V Performance Sedans
Two new track-oriented luxury cars will soon be joining Cadillac’s lineup.
The 2020 CT4-V and the 2020 CT5-V are the latest additions to Cadillac’s V-Series performance sub-brand, along with the 2019 CT6-V.
Both models are available with either RWD or AWD. They boast features in common like a V-Series performance chassis, Magnetic Ride Control 4.0, V-Mode steering wheel control, Brembo front brakes, a 10-speed automatic transmission, limited-slip rear differential, and available Super Cruise hands-free driving technology. They also share exterior styling like the V-Series mesh grille, dark exterior accents, and quad exhaust tips.
“The new V-Series sedan lineup defines modern sophistication by combining luxury appointments with thoughtful technology and athletic refinement for the discerning enthusiast,” said Brandon Vivian, Cadillac’s executive chief engineer. “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.”

The compact CT4-V is a variant of the soon-to-be-introduced CT4 sedan. It carries a turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that gets 320 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque and is designed with an almost 50/50 weight distribution to maximize balance and grip. Other key features for the CT4-V include 18-inch wheels with summer-only performance tires (all-season for AWD) and a rear spoiler.
The larger CT5-V builds on the recently unveiled CT5 sedan. Rolling on 19-inch wheels and performance tires, it’s powered by a high-output 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that delivers 355 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
GM President Mark Reuss hinted that even more V-Series models could be in Cadillac’s future. “This is only the beginning of the V family,” he said. “Cadillac’s passion for performance shines on a racetrack. Stay tuned.”
The CT4-V and CT5-V are expected to arrive at dealerships early in 2020.
