Cadillac Adds All-New 1.5T Engine Variants to CT4 Lineup


SHANGHAI – Cadillac has added two new variants powered by a 1.5T engine to its CT4 luxury sedan family in China. The 25T Luxury and 25T Fashion are priced at RMB 219,700 and RMB 231,700, respectively. They have joined the CT4 28T to strengthen Cadillac’s New American Luxury rear-wheel-drive sports sedan family.

The all-new CT4 1.5T variants are equipped with Cadillac’s first four-cylinder longitudinal 1.5L turbocharged engine, matched with the new-generation eight-speed automatic transmission, and additional advanced driver assist technologies.

With their segment-only rear-wheel-drive system and distinct steering wheel gear-shift paddle, the CT4 1.5T variants offer younger Cadillac customers in China a more confident luxury driving experience.

Tailored to complement the brand’s award-winning rear-wheel-drive architecture, the turbocharged engine is key to the variants’ discerning driving dynamics and cutting-edge precision. It delivers 155 kW of maximum power and 270 Nm of peak torque at an engine speed of 1,750-4,500 rpm, for more powerful acceleration and smooth cruising at high speeds. The upgraded 8AT transmission further improves responsiveness. With the advanced propulsion system, the CT4 25T can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.9 seconds.

The advanced 1.5T engine also incorporates a suite of state-of-the-art technologies that offer refined performance, intelligent control and optimized NVH. They include a 35MPa high-pressure side-injected direct injection (SIDI) fuel system, an active thermal management system and the latest-generation ECM with improved computing power. A dual balance shaft system, a distinct feature in its segment, helps reduce vibration to improve driving refinement.  

The front and rear suspensions have been enhanced to add to the CT4’s rewarding driving experience. The signature double-pivot MacPherson-type front suspension and segment-only five-spoke independent rear suspension deliver even better road isolation and driver feedback.

In addition, the new CT4 25T variants as well as the 28T Prestige adopt additional active safety features. They include Lane Keep Assist and Side Blind Zone Alert, which enhance safety and convenience, and ensure a more relaxed mobility experience.

The CT4 has been a popular model since its domestic launch in 2020. With its athletic design and carefree performance, it is especially appealing to the new generation of Cadillac buyers.
