Cadillac’s replacement for the ATS-V is disappointing to say the least

The 2020 Cadillac CT4-V is the company’s latest compact performance car and a replacement for the 2019 ATS-V. The CT4-V is based on the CT4, a sedan that’s set to break cover later in 2019. The CT4-V marks Cadillac’s return to the performance compact sedan market, currently dominated by BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi. However, the CT4-V doesn’t go against the high-profile BMW M3, and Mercedes-AMG C63 like its predecessor did.

While the 2019 ATS-V came with a V-6 engine rated at more than 450 horsepower, the 2020 CT4-V features a smaller engine with a smaller output. The new compact features the 2.7-liter four-cylinder that debuted in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado truck and hits the road with a little over 300 horsepower. Does it have what it takes to compete with Germany’s finest performance sedans? Let’s find out in the review below.

Cadillac’s Giant Four-Cylinder Engine Explained

It’s one of the largest four-cylinder engines on the market

Back in 2019, General Motors introduced a new four-cylinder engine in the Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. Developed specifically for the midsize truck, the engine eventually made it into the Cadillac CT4-V sedan for the 2021 model year. So what’s so special about this engine? Well, for starters, it’s pretty big for a four-cylinder at 2.7 liters. It also features a dual volute turbocharged design instead of the more common dual scroll layout. And the folks at Engineering Explained talk about this feature and what kind of benefits it brings to the table.

We Hope You Weren’t Planning to Buy a Cadillac CT4-V or CT5-V Blackwing This Year

If there’s anything to blame, then blame the coronavirus

As many other fellow carmakers, General Motors had its factories shut down because of the rapidly-spreading coronavirus. The giant was supposed to maintain the lockdown until March 30 and reevaluate the situation at that point.

Since things aren’t showing signs of improvement in the U.S. and plants remain closed, the ripple effect created by the measure is beginning to affect GM’s portfolio, including brands like Cadillac.

Get Ready to Shift Your Own Gears in the 2020 Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing

A manual transmission is reportedly in the works, but the Blackwing V-8 is probably swimming with the fishes

Like most of you, we too were confused when Cadillac launched the less-than-stellar CT4-V and CT5-V last year, but it didn’t take long for us to learn that hotter versions, with the name “Blackwing” were on the horizon. We’ve yet to see these hotter, flagship sedans, but new information has finally come to light and now we have a slightly better view of what’s coming.

Cadillac Just Revealed the CT4-V and CT5-V, and I'm Pissed

Cadillac Just Revealed the CT4-V and CT5-V, and I’m Pissed

No manual transmission….

Outside of the fact that you could have pretty luxurious American car with decent power, something that made the Cadillac ATS-V (and the last-gen CTS-V) stand out was the availability of a manual transmission. Cadillac dropped the manual on the CTS-V a few years back, so we didn’t expect the CT5-V to be offered with one, but the CT4-V certainly should at least be offered with the option. At least the ATS-V and CTS-V came with decent power. Well, now Cadillac has announced both replacement cars and, as it turns out, there’s no manual transmission and no power in sight. Does that mean those both cars are duds and should just be written off like the many other GM models that GM ruined in one way or another? Yeah, probably, and I’m pissed. What the hell is wrong with GM these days?
