cadillac has priced its new ct4 entry-level sedan starting at $33,990, meaning its base price is $2500 lower than the ats it replaces. this goes along with a repositioning of the ct4—which is essentially a rebodied ats with a new interior—as a rival to smaller entry-lux models such as the audi a3, bmw 2-series, and mercedes-benz a-class.
the sportier and more powerful ct4-v, which starts at $45,490, is now intended to line up with performance variants such as the audi s3 and bmw m240i. an even more powerful variant of the ct4-v is on the way, possibly called blackwing, that will do battle with the full-bore performance versions of these models such as the audi rs3 and bmw m2.
the base luxury trim of the ct4 comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four that makes 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. an eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive are standard, while all-wheel drive is a $2600 option as part of a package that also includes heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. this same powertrain is standard on the $38,490 premium luxury and $39,590 sport trims, although a more powerful turbocharged 2.7-liter inline-four will be optional, making 309 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque.
the $45,490 ct4-v has an uptuned version of the 2.7-liter engine making 325 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque, and it too can be paired with all-wheel drive for $1100 extra. rear-drive v models come standard with magnetorheological dampers, and the v also has a limited-slip differential, 18-inch wheels and summer performance tires, and a few interior tweaks.
cadillac hasn't released option pricing yet, but the company will roll out a full online configurator sometime soon before the ct4 starts arriving at dealerships early next year.
