The American sport sedan anti-BMW is here

Cadillac has taken the next step in the realignment of its sedan portfolio with the introduction of the first-ever CT4 sport sedan to the Middle East. The 2020 Cadillac CT4 is poised to appeal to a new generation of customers and is now available for purchase from select Cadillac dealerships in the Middle East.


Christian Soemmer, Managing Director Cadillac International Operations and Cadillac Middle East said: “The Cadillac CT4 has been designed to turn heads and grab attention. The first-ever Cadillac CT4, was made to appeal to buyers who want to express themselves – particularly our younger audience in the luxury market, who are very important to us. With its athletic driving experience combined with the luxurious Cadillac DNA, the vehicle combines great proportions and taut surfacing, with advanced technology and performance. We are very excited about the arrival of the CT4 in the region and look forward to seeing its dynamism on the roads.”

Technology & Performance

Driven by an all-turbocharged propulsion portfolio, (AWD available on the Luxury trim), the CT4 delivers a driving experience unmatched by front-drive competitors.


The all-new CT4 is built on Cadillac’s award-winning RWD sedan architecture. Exceptional balance from near-perfect weight distribution contributes to one of the segment’s nimblest, most responsive driving experiences. Enhancements of the front and rear suspension systems, including Cadillac’s signature double-pivot MacPherson-type front suspension (with dual lower ball joints), are designed to improve road isolation and driver feedback.

Additional chassis and driving dynamics features:

  • Bosch premium electric, rack-mounted power steering system.
  • Capable, precise and more-dependable eBoost brakes with patented Duralife coated rotors.
  • Brembo front brakes standard on Sport.
  • ZF MVS (Multi-Valve System) passive dampers.
  • All-Wheel Drive (AWD) available on the Luxury model.

Selectable vehicle drive modes are standard and allow customers to enhance their vehicle settings for different preferences and conditions. The modes, Tour, Sport, Snow/Ice and Track are joined by new My Mode, which can alter the calibrations for transmission shifting, suspension, steering and brake feel, front/rear torque split (with AWD), vehicle sound character and other vehicle attributes. They, along with the standard run-flat tires on the Sport trim, allow driving with most punctures that would otherwise sideline conventional tires requiring immediate replacement or repair.

CT4 leverages Cadillac’s proven turbocharging proficiency as the foundation for its spirited performance. The brand’s 2.0L Twin-Scroll Turbo engine, with three-step sliding camshaft technology along with Active Fuel Management and automatic stop/start, is standard and SAE-certified at 237 hp (177 kW) and 350 Nm of torque. It is backed by a sophisticated eight-speed automatic transmission.

Cadillac’s new 2.7L segment-first Dual-Volute Turbo engine is available on Premium Luxury. Horsepower is estimated at 309 hp with 472 Nm of torque in the Premium Luxury model. It is matched with a segment-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission with Electronic Precision Shift. Like the 2.0L Turbo engine, the 2.7L Turbo also features a three-step sliding camshaft design, along with Active Fuel Management and automatic stop/start.

The Cabin

A high-definition, 8-inch-diagonal touchscreen is the centerpiece and focal point for the CT4’s connectivity. It is mounted prominently in the center of the instrument panel with superb integration that flows with the interior’s lines.


Authentic materials such as leather appointments enhance refinement, while a host of standard comfort and convenience features emphasize Cadillac’s attention to detail:

  • Keyless entry and push-button starting.
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel (heated steering wheel is standard).
  • Full-color dual-display driver information center.
  • HD Rear Vision Camera.
  • LED interior lighting with stealth mode.
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control with a humidity sensor, dust/particulate filter and rear-seat vents.
