For over a century the Cadillac brand has stood for its bold designs, innovative technology, and superior performance. They have been the pioneers of many automotive inventions that we take for granted such as electric self-starters, and lighting capabilities.
Cadillac is synonymous with beauty and luxury. The all-new 2020 Cadillac CT4 is set to continue this time-honored tradition. Let us check out the major reasons why you should consider buying this vehicle:

1. An Absolutely Unbeatable Combination Of Performance And Style
The Cadillac team has effectively created this vehicle from the ground up. It does not replace the now discontinued ATS, but rather it is a completely new design. The Cadillac CT4 is both very stylish and a top-notch performer. One that easily straddles the sport-luxury as well as the upscale compact markets.
The vehicle’s exterior is a seamless combination of sharp and rounded edges. The front end of this Cadillac is very impressive thanks to its double grille and the vehicle has its own ultra-modern take on its large LED headlights. The CT4’s rear is flat, and it accommodates a very wide trunk opening lid.
2. Powerful Engine Options
This vehicle absolutely stuns in the performance department, regardless of its size. The different trim levels of the 2020 Cadillac CT4 offer multiple engine options that have been designed to cater to different types of drivers.
The three regular trims have a 2-liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. It is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission system. This setup provides a maximum of 258 pound-feet of torque and 237 horsepower (HP).
This is respectable performance for any luxury sedan. However, CT4-V trim takes this performance one step further. This trim level is equipped with a 2.7-liter, Dual Volute High-Output Turbo (DVHOT) engine complete with a quad exhaust system. The powertrain can churn out 325 horsepower and a total torque value of approximately 380 pounds per foot.
In other words, you can easily attach a tow hook to the back of the vehicle, and the CT4-V would be able to carry thousands of pounds of material.
3. Super Cruise Semi-Automated System
The 2020 Cadillac CT4 takes a running leap over the competition thanks to its revolutionary ‘Super Cruise semi-automated system.’ This is Cadillac’s offering to automated driving and the CT4’s proprietary technology has multiple built-in sensors and wireless communication advancements that help control vehicle steering and speed under certain conditions.
The CT4’s highly innovative Super Cruise option is a great chance for Cadillac engineers and designers to see just how well their semi-autonomous system will work with their newest automobile designs. The vehicle is available at auto dealers Huntsville Al.
4. User-Friendly Controls
The CT4’s predecessor, the ATS, had a very unique system of controls that were a bit difficult to access and activate. However, the CT4 does not suffer from excess gadgetry and it has been designed with highly responsive user-friendly controls.
Activation of the different controls of the vehicle is based on knobs, buttons and the infotainment screen and all of them are within easy reach of the driver.
5. Low Cost That Cuts Across All Trims
The Cadillac CT4 is available in multiple trim levels and all of them come with a fairly reasonable MSRP price tag for a luxury sedan. The least expensive trim level is known as the CT4 Luxury and it begins at around $33,000 while the performance-based CT4-V typically retails at $44,000 or so, at auto dealers in Huntsville Al. The $10,000 difference is manageable for many upscale buyers since it fits most consumers’ budgets.
6. An All-New And Redesigned Touchscreen Interface
The ATS had a CUE infotainment system that was very difficult to access, especially when one was driving in the city. This is why Cadillac has now replaced it in the CT4 with a much more traditional 8-inch touchscreen system. This infotainment system has pinch-to-zoom, tap, and swipe features. Another 8-inch display has been added to the control panel to replace the old ATS’s analog gauges.
7. Cutting Edge Noise-Canceling Sound System
The 2020 Cadillac CT4 also features a state of the art active noise control system. It can help to maintain a quiet ride not just in the city, but also the highway. There are many sensors that have been built directly into the chassis of the vehicle. They detect environmental sounds and vibrations.
Apart from that, the system can help to absorb a large amount of sound debris present in the atmosphere. This result is an extremely quiet and comfortable ride in the cabin.
8. Duel Powertrain Offerings
The 2020 Cadillac CT4 is available in two separate power trains. Three of its four trims have a regular rear-wheel drive (RWD) configuration, while the CT4-V comes with an all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability. If the brand new CT4-V is beyond your budget, you might consider opting for one in the used cars for sale in the Huntsville market.
9. Enhanced Driver Assist Features And Aids
The 2020 Cadillac CT4 has a whole lot of standard and optional driver-assist aids. These include blind zone detection as well as an advanced ‘Cross Traffic Assist’ system that is part of an already robust safety package.
The vehicle features a standard HD rear-view camera along with multiple alerts for forward collisions. They include audiovisual cues in the form of a warning signal and a heads-up icon on the windshield.
The vehicle’s front pedestrian braking system immediately stops the car when it detects a person in front of the vehicle. The CT4 also boasts of a rear park assist that actively aids the driver in avoiding cars and other objects.
10. A Large Number Of Connectivity Options
The 2020 CT4 has so many connectivity options that it just might double as an internet cafe. It has a one-touch Bluetooth pairing mode that can help you connect your favorite streaming device to the vehicle’s sound system at the touch of an icon.
It is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto. Apart from that, OnStar is also enabled to determine traffic patterns and even alert a central office in case the vehicle is involved in an accident.
The CT4 is an all-new model that has been very recently launched by Cadillac. This is why it may be a little difficult to find one in the used cars for sale market. However, brand new or pre-owned, the CT4 is a great vehicle for you to consider.
