Autoblog: This may not be the V of old, but it’s still a winner

Recommended Posts

We only got to drive the CT4-V this go around, but on the road, we found it strikes a near-perfect balance between luxury and performance. Its eagerness and athleticism never encroach on its luxury mission until you ask them to, whether you dial in your own drive mode profile — Cadillac calls it “My Mode” — or you simply reach for the one-click V-Mode option on the steering wheel.


While the dual-volute turbocharger and large displacement deliver torque for days, the 2.7-liter feels a bit awkward when accelerating slowly from a stop. This is probably at least somewhat down to the gearing of the CT4-V’s 10-speed automatic. In Touring mode especially, the engine seems to generate a disproportionate amount of noise for the power it’s putting out at lower throttle openings. It sounds overworked, which is the exact opposite of what you’d expect from an engine being asked merely for mild acceleration, making it all the more noticeable.
