CT4 V-SERIES FEATURES

PERFORMANCE

Send your pulse soaring with features that push performance even further. Drive with confidence in a Small Sport Sedan that comes from having the power you crave on race day and the control you need for the roadway.

POWERTRAINS

Your daily driver deserves a weekend gig. CT4-V houses a 2.7L dual-volute turbocharged I4 engine with 325 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque, while CT4-V Blackwing offers a Cadillac-exclusive 3.6L Twin-Turbo V6 with 472 horsepower and 445 lb.-ft. of torque. 

STANDARD 22" ALLOY WHEELS

Every 2023 Escalade makes a statement all its own. Set your standout style in motion with 22" alloy wheels that are distinctive and designed to accentuate each trim.

MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL 

Structurally rigid, yet compliant in an instant. The 2023 V-Series family features the latest generation of Magnetic Ride Control, the world’s fastest reacting suspension technology. It reads the road up to 1,000 times per second and seamlessly adjusts damping for confidence-inspiring ride and handling.

BREMBO® PERFORMANCE BRAKES 

Quiet on the road and proven on the track. Brembo performance front brakes give CT4-V confident pedal feel and secure stopping power. On CT4-V Blackwing, front and rear Brembo high-performance brakes as well as enhanced cooling improve brake performance and fade resistance.   

REAR-WHEEL DRIVE

The foundation for high-performance handling, RWD architecture enables ideal front to rear weight distribution and reduces mass, so carving corners is a breeze. For added traction in everyday conditions, CT4-V offers available all-wheel drive.

TRANSMISSIONS 

The 10-speed automatic transmission, standard on CT4-V and available on CT4-V Blackwing, delivers lightning-fast shifts. CT4-V Blackwing boasts a 6-speed manual transmission with active rev matching and no lift shifting, finished with a hand-polished, 3D-printed medallion atop the gear shifter to honor the true art of driving.

TIRES

Standard summer-only, low-profile tires* offer race car aesthetics and encourage spirited driving at every turn. CT4-V Blackwing boasts Michelin Pilot® Sport 4S summer-only, low-profile tires.* For athleticism on all occasions, CT4-V offers available all-season low-profile, run-flat tires.*  

EXTERIOR

CT4 V-Series aesthetics are exhilarating lessons in the science of aerodynamics, developed and tested over years at the track. Captivate your competitors, then blow them away. It’s time for you to take the lead—in style.

ARTFUL AERODYNAMICS 

Signature V-Series aesthetics serve a powerful purpose. The mesh grille design directs air to the main radiators, cooler and airflow ducts. The front splitter and rear spoiler combine to reduce lift and generate traction. This is science applied by the hands of a sculptor. 

CARBON FIBER EXTERIOR PACKAGES

To elevate ultimate performance design even further, CT4-V Blackwing offers two available Carbon Fiber packages.* More than exterior adornments, aerodynamic touches significantly reduce lift and dramatically improve high-speed handling and control, helping make CT4-V Blackwing the highest aero downforce Cadillac ever made.
