Cadillac semi-autonomous sedan
The Cadillac CT5 2020 is brand new, as it is expected to improve with age, says Chief Engineer Brandon Vivian, with updates to his help for semi-autonomous Super Cruise drivers.
Cadillac has recently doubled the number of SUVs on its line, but it is also the commitment of the sedans with the revelation of two fast four-door models.
The CT5-V and CT4-V are high performance versions of the company's new medium and compact sedans.
The CT4-V will be Cadillac's smallest performance car.
The CT4-V made its first appearance at an event in Detroit on Thursday night after the CT5's debut at the New York International Auto Show in March. The cars replace the CTS and the ATS in the Cadillac lineup. Although they are very used to being drivers' cars, both will be available with Cadillac's semi-autonomous Super Cruise technology, which provides a hands-free driving experience on the road.
Super Cruise has a LED light strip on the steering wheel for the driver to know that it is working properly.
The CT4 is a medium size larger than the ATS, and the CT4-V works with a 2.7-liter four-cylinder turbocharged 320 hp connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission, while the CT5-V gets a double of 355 hp . 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged and the same number of gears. Both have a significantly lower power compared to the CTS-V and the ATS-V, but GM president Mark Reuss suggested they will follow even more powerful models.
The CT5 goes on sale this fall and the CT5-V will follow it in early 2020.
The CT4-V and CT5-V are equipped with computer controlled suspensions, limited slip differentials, Brembo front brakes and available with all-wheel or rear-wheel drive.
They also have an electronic architecture that will allow air updates of many of their systems, including the Super Cruise.
Currently, the function can self-manage a motorway lane while using a face recognition camera to make sure the driver is watching the road, but it is expected that additional capabilities will be added for when the cars go on sale early next year. . Prices will be announced. It is expected that more CT4 files will be submitted in the coming weeks.
