Just some days in the past, we talked concerning the newly introduced Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V. Principally we talked about how disappointing they’re, now that essentially the most energy both of them make is 340 hp from a twin-turbo V6. Nonetheless, that disappointment may need been a bit untimely, as two new prototypes of the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 have been formally teased, signaling rather more efficiency forward.
Other than the truth that these two prototypes are going to be extra highly effective and higher-performance than the CT4-V and CT5-V, there’s actually no different data to offer. In truth, the one element Cadillac provided was that they each “signify the subsequent step in Cadillac’s V-Sequence efficiency legacy.”
It’s a bit complicated, as a result of the opposite two new “V” vehicles are steps backward within the V-Sequence efficiency legacy. So what are these new vehicles going to be known as? We don’t know however they’re promised to be angrier, sooner and louder.
The one issues we are able to actually discern from these pictures are the revised entrance fascia and the quad exhausts. Whereas we are able to’t really see the brand new face, we all know they each have one as they’re each coated. The quad exhaust additionally trace at one thing sportier.
As for engines and energy, we’ve got no particulars. We count on the Cadillac CT4 model to have some form of twin-turbocharged V6, with BMW M3-fighting energy. Whereas the Cadillac CT5 model may have some form of twin-turbocharged V8 and tackle the BMW M5. The CT5 model may additionally get the brand new Cadillac-built twin-turbo “Blackbird” V8. We hope that’s the case, because the Blackbird V8 is the primary engine is a really lengthy whereas that isn’t shared with the remainder of GM. It’s all Caddy and that’s cool.
So we don’t know an excessive amount of about these two vehicles besides for his or her existence. It’s good to know they exist, although, as we thought Cadillac V had gone smooth however now we all know there needs to be at the least one real-deal efficiency machine coming from America quickly sufficient.
