Performance is at the forefront of two new Cadillac models. Earlier this summer, two new Cadillac CT5-V and CT4-V prototypes were spied at the Detroit Grand Prix, giving us a first look at the new replacements for the CTS-V and ATS-V — and they certainly made a lasting impression.
These two power-hungry sedans differ from the previously introduced 2020 CT5-V and CT4-V models, boasting aggressively styled body kits and multiple vents and scoops for cooling purposes, along with bigger wheels, tires, and brakes. While the specific specs of these two engines haven’t been released yet, spectators who witnessed the prototypes in engine suggest that the CT5-V will have a V8, while the CT4-V has a V6.
Rumors have it that the CT5-V’s V8 will be the 4.2-liter Blackwing V8 engine from Cadillac, while the CT4-V will have the outgoing ATS-V’s twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6.
It’s expected that the prototypes spied at the Detroit Grand Prix will have a bigger performance punch than the recently announce 2020 CT5-V and CT4-V. That’s because the latter models are meant to sit lower on the performance ladder. There’s no word what these two new vehicles will be called, though, but we’re sure that the nomenclature will signify that these prototypes offer more power than the 2020 models.
