New 2022 Cadillac CT4V Release Date, Colors, Interior – Although the 2022 Cadillac CT4V might not be as powerful as the ATS-V Blackwing or the CT4-V Blackwing, it is still a great vehicle. The CT4-V’s 325 horsepower seems like a small step in the wrong direction, compared to the 464 horsepower discontinued ATS-V. The lack of power becomes more understandable when you look at Cadillac’s bigger plan. The 2022 Cadillac CT4-V (and its larger sibling, CT5-V) were not intended to replace the ATS-V or CTS-V. Both have been outperformed by the Blackwing models.
The CT4-V is the most accessible performance sedan for American customers, despite not having the Blackwing’s performance credentials and the CT5’s size. Although it has the same space as the ATS-V, the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine under the hood means that this V model is less competitive with the M3s or C63s worldwide. It also competes more with smaller competitors like the Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 35 and the Audi S3. A 2.7-liter turbo four-cylinder engine produces 325 horsepower and is capable of generating 380 lb-ft of torque. The 10-speed automatic controls the transmission. Does it deserve the “V” designation? This is the Cadillac CT4V-V review of an AWD Cadillac CT4V model.
2022 Cadillac CT4 V Redesign
The 2022 Cadillac CT4V can be easily identified as part of the CT4 series. Only subtle styling changes hint at the increased performance that you would expect from a V-badged Caddy. This standard equipment includes 18-inch wheels with summer performance tires, but 19-inch wheels are also available. The appearance is enhanced by gloss-black accents and new grilles. A subtle rear spoiler and quad-exit exhaust tips are also included. LED headlights with cool vertical running lights make this vehicle stand out. You can add a power sunroof to your vehicle for a small charge.
The CT4V’s dimensions are 187.2 inches long and 109.3 inches wide. It is longer than the Mercedes C-Class. The width is 71.4 inches, and the height is 56 inches. The car’s base curb weight is 3,616 pounds. However, you can expect it to increase slightly if you choose the all-wheel-drive system (3,761lbs). It is important to note that Cadillac claims the AWD system is a convenience and not a necessity. In addition, the platform this car shares are rear-drive only.
The interior of the 2022 Cadillac CT4 V is quite attractive, even though it’s small. It feels smaller than its direct competitors, even though it is more extensive. It also feels more like a Buick than a real Cadillac. It looks modern and sleek, with decent materials and a simple console and button layout. There is also a tiny infotainment display with attractive graphics. Unfortunately, the screen’s angle can make it difficult to read at times. Only one size is possible. You can also add heated, ventilated, and massaging seats to your healthy options, as well as wireless charging. A new 12-inch HD gauge cluster is also available this year.
The CT4V can seat four people in relative comfort or five in an emergency. This is why the CT4-V has more length. The only problem is that the back seat offers 33.4 inches less legroom than the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe. The headroom in the back and front seats is adequate. However, if your frame is more significant, you might find yourself bumping into the rider riding shotgun quite often. Although the center did not have ventilation or massage, our tester found it too stiff and unnaturally placed for a 5’8″ person. There aren’t any significant issues with getting in or out.
2022 Cadillac CT4 V Engine
The CT4-V has one engine and one transmission. It uses the same turbocharged four-pot 2.7-liter engine as the 2022 Cadillac CT4 V, but it delivers a more substantial 325 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. The engine’s power delivery is excellent, but there is a slight lag at low revs. Although the engine runs very smoothly, it can feel a bit sloppy when you push the pedal. In addition, the engine is louder than necessary in a car like this luxury performance car and feels overworked. It’s normal for a four-cylinder engine. However, when you’re cruising or in traffic, it isn’t as obvious.
When everything is in Tour mode, the 10-speed automatic gearbox seems to be a bit hesitant to change up once you reach the second half of the ratios. This means that you might need to manually shift up to get back to the torque curve. You can change it to Sport or Race mode, and the throttle response will be sharpened. This makes acceleration much more fun. Cadillac also has a V mode button on its steering wheel that can be set to suit the driver’s needs. This is a good setup overall, although a bit more power would be appreciated. We are still used to the ATS-V, so this car may be just right if we don’t ask too much.
