Cadillac expands V-series with new CT4-V and CT5-V sedans
- Cadillac has unveiled two new motors under its V-Series range
- The CT4-V and CT5-V luxury sedans are for those who want a ‘dynamic daily drive’
- They will replace the Cadillac ATS-V and CTS-V models
- GM President Mark Reuss says there will be new track-friendly versions ‘coming soon’
Cadillac has pulled the wraps off a pair of brand-new models in the V-Series motors that will hit roads in 2020.
Following the announcement of the latest CT6-V sedan earlier in the year, Cadillac has further added to its V-Series with the CT4-V and CT5-V.
The two luxury sedans will effectively replace the brand’s ATS-V and CTS-V, that are nearing the end of their careers. Unfortunately, this isn’t necessarily good news.
Both older models clock in at upwards of 460-horsepower, with top speeds around the 300-kilometres-per-hour mark. The new models come in well below that, with the CT5-V boasting just 355-horses under the hood.
That changes comes down to how Cadillac wants to position its V-Series. According to GM President Mark Reuss, "The new lineup expands the V-Series ethos, drawing more customers into the Cadillac Performance family, and the newest Vs are focused on elevated athleticism and luxurious refinement for customers wanting a dynamic daily drive."
Fortunately, both models have been given a chunkier exterior. The grilles have gotten bigger, the contours have been sharpened. And the new models certainly look slicker than the last.
Reuss admitted that the new models were destined towards commuter drivers, he did say that there would be track-oriented models with beefier performance that would mitigate that drop in performance.
Both the CT4-V and CT5-V will go on sale early next year.
