Cadillac will debut the CT4 and CT5-V later this month, according to their most recent press release.
Cadillac might not have the biggest share of the luxury sedan market, but that’s not stopping them from offering their own hot sedans to take on the likes of Audi and BMW. Coming for the Audi RS3 and BMW M3 is the Cadillac CT4-V, the latest of Cadillac’s reborn V-Series vehicles and the highly anticipated sequel to the ATS-V.
The ATS-V met its demise last year, with Cadillac promising a replacement for 2020. The CTS met a similar fate even earlier but has already received its replacement in the CT5. We have yet to see the V-Series version of the CT5, but Cadillac promises us the wait for such a car will soon be over.
Next week, Cadillac will unveil the CT4 and CT5-V at an event in Detroit, Michigan.
"The CT4 and CT5 V-Series will make their global debut in Detroit on May 30, representing the next chapter in the V-Series family,” wrote Cadillac in their press release. “And this is only the beginning."
We suspect that Cadillac will also unveil the CT4 V-Series at the same time, or at the very least tease it.
The ATS-V had 464 hp to its name, so it seems likely its replacement will have at least that much.
Cadillac’s last statement, “this is only the beginning,” is also a big clue that the American luxury carmaker will start producing performance variants of its crossovers and SUVs. A V-Series XT4 would be quite the crossover to take on something like the Porsche Macan.
