What do you mean they don't have the options for the higher performance engines?What is weird/dumb is that the Sport trims don't have the optional higher perf engine.
Why have a Sport if you can't get the power a Sport buyer would want.
Very true - preliminary order guides are definitely subject to change!If Phantom14 is correct, the Sport doesn't have the optional engine.
It's possible that the order guide has a mistake, since that doesn't make sense.
The order guide has corrections every week.
The CT5 order guide doesn't have the 3.0 engine listed yet.
Did a little bit calculation.Very true - preliminary order guides are definitely subject to change!
However, based on the 'official' announcements about CT4, it appears that Cadillac's plan is for the '-V' tag to now indicate little more than an upgraded Sport model: more hp/torque, more 'racy' options available. I'd have to look at the CT4 guide again, but I was surprised by a few options that were not standard on the CT4-V (I think the enhanced larger gauge package was one...). GM's looking for their "Starting at..." prices to be big marketing tools on these cars, though I expect that once you option up to where comparable ATS/CTSs were, the price will start to look more familiar.
This V strategy will make it easier (& cheaper) for them to create V versions of the SUVs. Take the Sport trim, add a moderate (though not very impressive) amount of power, change up the option mix, attach a dearer price, et voila! As we already know, the 'V' doesn't mean what it used to...
I would concur...as described, the Platinum Package for the Premium Luxury/Sport/V-Series includes "(HZK) Sedona Sauvage with Jet Black accents with Twenty-Two Carbon Fiber trim".If I'm reading it right, the Platinum interior is only available in Sedona color and has carbon fiber, not wood?, trim.
the whole thing is weird. A Sport model that has 123hp less than the prem lux? How does that make sense?CT4 order guide also says the 2.7 is avail on the Prem Lux, not the Sport and Avail on the V.
Maybe the order guide has a bug, maybe there is some issue or maybe they want to discourage ordering
the Sport for now. Possibly most CT5 Sport orders would want the 3.0TT and they want to limit it to the
Prem Lux + V for now, maybe if they don't have enough 3.0T to go around. Just Guessing.
All things considered the V model is more driver focused than the non V, but as far just wanting to get HP numbers. I'd go for the the non V and just get the engine unlocked with HPtuner, and have money left over for some nice Vossen rims and coil overs.the whole thing is weird. A Sport model that has 123hp less than the prem lux? How does that make sense?
Then the V series has the same HP as prem lux? What is going on? It was bad enough when they announced the V was 20hp more than the non-V. Altho maybe I should be happy that I can get a prem lux with 360hp vs the 335hp they originally announced.
