2021 Cadillac CT4: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - January 28, 2020

Model Preview

Cadillac’s entire lineup is going through a revolution as new crossovers and sedans are arriving at a fever pitch. One of the newest arrivals is the 2020 CT4 sedan, which replaces the outgoing ATS. With this small luxury sedan entering only its second model year, we expect the 2021 CT4 to be a carryover model.

Like the brand’s SUVs and crossovers, its sedans also recently received an all-new design language that brought in thin headlights, bolder grilles, more defined horizontal LED accent lights, and T-shaped taillights that dig into the rear quarter panels. This look made its way to the new-for-2020 CT4, and we expect it to carry on unchanged into the 2021 CT4.

Inside, the all-new CT4 combines class and simplicity with its upscale materials, large touchscreen, and sharp dash lines pairing with a clutter-free center stack with buttons that stretch horizontally, and dash-widening horizontal air vents. We expect this toned-down but luxurious look to roll into the 2021 CT4 with no major changes.

Cadillac CT4

Powering the 2021 Cadillac CT4, we expect the same trio of turbocharged engine options, beginning with the standard 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that delivers 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. In the Premium Luxury trim, we expect the turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder to remain unchanged at 309 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque. Finally, we expect the V-Series’ 2.7-liter turbo four-pot to remain at 325 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-liter will continue to mate with an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the 2.7-liter units will pair with a 10-speed cog-swapper. All engine options will have standard rear-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive.

The Cadillac CT4 has yet to meet its brick-wall fate via the IIHS or NHTSA, so its official safety ratings are not available. What we know is it lacks standard advanced safety gear, as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, and more are all optional. Cadillac announced that the 2021 CT4 will receive an enhanced version of its Super Cruise driver assistance system, which includes a new automated lane change functionality. This system will also be optional.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2021 CT4 will go on sale in the second half of 2020.

Pricing is also unconfirmed, but with the 2021 CT4 being a carryover model, we expect its pricing to remain close to the current model, which ranges from $33,990 to $46,590 (destination fees included).

This compact luxury sedan will compete with the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Audi A3.
