    Both reveals on same day, cool!

    If this is correct, they’re revealing the V version of the CT4 before the regular version. Maybe there won’t be a regular version??

    Wow! Unexpected good news! I wonder why they decided to debut both at the same time, I'd think they'd get more free press by doing two separate events.

    It's still not a compact. It's a midsize. I dont know why GM is keeping this going with the compact stuff but maybe they think they can turn it into a positive as the car is larger than a compact.

    That's not a typo – Cadillac is launching its new compact sedan in hopped-up V trim.
    We've seen spy photos of Cadillac's planned replacement for the critically acclaimed ATS sedan for a while now, called the CT4. We also learned that the automaker was planning to reveal its compact four-door later this year. Cadillac just sent Motor1.com an email inviting us to a reveal event on May 30, but when we read the message we suffered a minor neck injury after doing a massive double-take. The car being revealed isn't just the new CT-4. Cadillac is jumping straight to the good stuff with a high-performance CT4-V.
    Now that we know the CT4 is breaking cover as a V-badged sports sedan, what kind of sporting cred can we expect? That's still a mystery to us at, but some version of GM's 2.0-liter engine is certainly a good candidate. We were expecting that mill to power the standard CT4, so perhaps the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 from the new CT5 might be the up-spec mill-of-choice. In any case, it should drive either the rear wheels or all four.

    The other big news here is that the CT5-V is also a thing. The standard sedan was only recently revealed, but rumors of a CT5-V didn't take long to percolate. Now that its existence is confirmed, we're left speculating about the mill that it could pack under the hood. If the previous CTS-V is any indication, a Blackwing V8 of significant power could be coming.

    While other U.S. automakers – including other brands under the GM umbrella – are pulling back on sedans in favor of SUVs, it suddenly seems as though Cadillac is doubling down on the traditional four-door in a rather dramatic, performance-oriented manner. Motor1.com will be attending the May 30 event ahead of the Belle Isle Grand Prix, so we'll be first in line to get all the juicy details of this unexpected Motor City sports sedan revival.

    The ATS is a compact, per EPA, isn’t the CT4 going to be about the same size? CTS/CT5 is midsize.

    Interesting that they are doing it on the same day, I find that odd.. they must have a lot of similarities I'd bet.

    Yes, we all know the EPA standards etc etc. The Sonic is a compact. The CT4 is not. What's the CT3 going to be? Sub-compact? Compact? See the weird slope you start on if you keep calling your midsize offering a compact.

    Would you call the 5 series a midsize?

    Yes, the 5 series is a midsize, 7 series is the large.

    I'd say the CT4/ATS is a compact, it sure as hell isn't midsize. The Sonic on the other hand, is referred to as a subcompact by almost anyone except the EPA...and rental car agencies.

    I've never heard anyone call the ATS (or 3 Series) a midsize....
