Cadillac has been on a recent product blitz as of late. While GM’s pinnacle luxury brand is currently refocusing on beefing up its once sparse utility vehicle lineup, it has not forgotten about its traditional car lineup. The Cadillac CT4-V as well as its more conventional CT4 counterpart have already made their respective debuts, but the brand has finally released the official pricing ladder for every flavor of CT4. Based on what we see here, it’s very clear that Cadillac aims to draw in younger buyers with its newest four door offering.
The fun starts off with the entry level CT4 Luxury which has a base price of $33,990 when the destination charge is included into the mix. Adding all-wheel drive requires you to shell out an additional $2,600, which causes the price to go up to $36,590. Cadillac wanted to make the slightly higher premium worth it, and includes standard heated front seats and even a heated steering wheel to improve its cold weather prowess. The spicier CT4-V rings in at $45,490 before options, but unlike the CT4 Luxury, adding all-wheel drive to this model only results in an upcharge of $1,100 which is not bad for a performance focused luxury sedan.
Like recent European offerings, Cadillac is offering two additional trims between the Luxury and the V (Premium Luxury and Sport). The Premium Luxury model starts at $38,490 and the Sport is slightly higher at $39,590. Both trims also offer all-wheel drive, but Premium Luxury models raise the premium even higher to $3,200 due to the cooled seats that are bundled into the package. Sport models miss out on this feature, and as a result, have the same $2,600 charge for all-wheel drive that is also shared with the standard Luxury model.
Every CT4 (except for the V) comes standard with Cadillac’s familiar 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder engine that makes 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque with an eight speed automatic handling all the shifting duties. V models on the other hand arrive with a 2.7 liter turbo four that makes an impressive 325 horsepower, and an equally stout 380 lb-ft of torque. Buyers that opt for this trim also get an extra gear in the transmission, with all Vs being equipped with GMs 10-speed automatic. Buyers looking to order a CT4 for themselves will be able to do so later this year, with more of the options list hopefully being released closer to its arrival on dealer lots.
