A few days ago Cadillac took the wraps off the 2020 Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V sedans, but if you were hoping for more, Cadillac is working on something even hotter. When Cadillac took the wraps off the CT4-V and CT5-V, it promised that it was just the beginning, since it is working on even better versions and now we just got our first preview at the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix.
We don’t know what’s under the hood, but we can see that the “future of Cadillac’s V-Series” looks great. On the outside both prototypes feature a more aggressive front bumper, fender vents and a quad exhaust system. Since the hotter CT4-V and CT5-V are designed for the track, we can also expect both sedans to get a sportier suspension than the standard CT4-V and CT5-V.
What we’re eager to hear is what powers both sedans. The 2020 CT4-V is powered by a 2.7L four-cylinder with 320 horsepower and 369 lb-ft. of torque, which isn’t too exciting. Hopefully the hotter CT4-V will get something closer to the 464-hp 3.6L V6 that powered the ATS-V.
The 2020 CT5-V is powered by a 355-hp 3.0L V6, which again isn’t that impressive. Hopefully the higher-performance CT5-V will get something closer to the 640-hp V8 that powers the CTS-V. It’s possible that it will get a version of the 4.2L V8 that powers the CT6-V.
Cadillac hasn’t announced when it will reveal the hotter versions of the CT4-V and CT5-V.
