By: Bayway Cadillac of The Woodlands | Published 06/24/2022


The 2021 Cadillac CT4 stands among the most popular sedans on the road today. There are three notable variations of the vehicle: The CT4, CT4-V, and CT4-V Blackwing. Compare their features and options below to see which sedan is best for you.

1. Engine and Transmission Comparison
The 2021 CT4 comes in the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels, while the CT4-V and CT4-V Blackwing are stand-alone trims. Two engines are available on the CT4: a 2.0-liter inline-four engine and a 2.7-liter inline-four engine. The CT4-V comes with the 2.7-liter. The CT4- Blackwing comes with a much larger 3.6-liter V-6 engine. The 2.0 grants 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, and the 2.7 provides 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The 3.6, however, pounds out 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque.

If you have a need for maximum speed, look no further than the Blackwing. It maxes out at an astonishing 189 mph on the racetrack and gets from zero to 60 in a lightning-fast 3.8 seconds. The CT4 comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission, whereas the CT4-V comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission, and the CT4-V Blackwing comes with either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.

2. Interior Style Comparison
The 2021 Cadillac CT4 features a uniquely colored and arranged interior, with crimson, tan, and orange upholstery options, an infotainment system that takes up a comfortably small amount of space, and a left-of-center gear shifter for easy driver access. The CT4-V features more in the way of interior accents and a thick-rim leather-wrapped steering wheel. A leather-wrapped version of the supercruise steering wheel is also available. The Blackwing has a center-set shifter when the manual transmission option is selected. It features sueded microfiber accents that the other versions lack, alongside torch red racing-style seatbelts.

3. Interior Tech Comparison
The 2021 CT4 comes with Cadillac Connect internet access, a digital compass, an air filtration system, keyless access, and programmable door locks with lockout protection and delayed locking. Its options include front seats with memory settings, cruise control or adaptive cruise control, and special ambient interior lighting. The CT4-V comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, express-down power windows, a drive mode selector, and optional wireless phone charging. 

The Blackwing features a high definition 12-inch diagonal and reconfigurable instrument cluster, so arrange the gauges however you like. The front seats are incredibly comfortable, ventilated, and 18-way adjustable. It comes with the best sound system of the trio: a 14-speaker AKG premium stereo system.

4. Universal Safety Features
The CT4, CT4-V, and Blackwing have most safety features in common, including front pedestrian braking, OnStar emergency services, and a configurable teen-driver monitoring system. The higher-tech safety features are optional on the CT4 and CT4-V but standard on the Blackwing. They include forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, and rear parking assist.

The three sedans are all well-engineered and superbly equipped. Ask the pros at your local Cadillac dealer for more details on each. They’ll guide you through their massive inventory toward the one that is perfect for you.
