Cadillac has revealed the CT4, the replacement for its entry-level ATS sedan.
The debut of the standard CT4 comes nearly four months after that of the performance-focused CT4-V, which was unveiled alongside the CT5-V in late May.
Despite being longer than a BMW 3 Series at 4756mm, Cadillac considers the CT4 a rival for cars a class below such as the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedans, with pricing expected to match the compact Germans.
Three engine options will be offered. Fitted as standard to the CT4 Luxury, Sport and Premium luxury trims is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 177kW of power and 350Nm of torque, paired to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic.
The comfort-minded Premium Luxury grade can be had with an optional, 231kW/472Nm 2.7-litre turbocharged four-cylinder married to a 10-speed automatic transmission co-developed with Ford. A hi-po version of the 2.7-litre mill is bundled with the CT4-V, where it produces 242kW and 515Nm (up from the 239kW/500Nm estimate released back in May).
All models are available with a choice of rear- or all-wheel-drive, with rear-drive versions equipped with GM’s adaptive Magnetic Ride Control suspension and all-paw variants making do with passive ZF dampers.
Inside, there’s a central 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, in addition to a semi-digital instrument cluster and the availability of Cadillac’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system.
Luxury and Premium Luxury models gain a unique appearance over their sporty V and Sport counterparts, which includes a silver mesh grille and chrome trim.
The 2020 Cadillac CT4 goes on sale in the US in early 2020.
