The winners of the Best in Show 2019 trophy were a 1927 Cadillac Town Car, a 1959 Chrysler Imperial and a 1959 DKW jeep. The main award is divided into three categories. Pre-War, Post-War and National. Leo Steinbruch’s Cadillac has Landaulet-type bodywork (passengers ride separately from the driver). The Chrysler belongs to Jose Zembrod. And Fandango, to José Bastos. The event, which began on Thursday and ends today, surpassed the organizers’ estimates. Although the numbers are not closed, the EBAA received more than 500 thousand visitors. And more than 1,200 vehicles, of which about 800 were for sale. “Águas de Lindoia is consolidating as a more business-oriented meeting. There are fewer rare and historic cars than in the Araxá (MG) event, but much more tents and pieces linked to antiglobalism, “says journalist and collector of old vehicles, Feldman Feldman, who has a blog on the website of Jornal do Carro. Feldman’s analysis can be confirmed by numbers. Between food and flea market, there were about 400 stalls at the event. In addition, at least a hundred vehicles, including cars and trucks, were offered in the streets around the EBAA site. Cadillac is going through an aggressive renewal process in its range, where practically none of the names you were used to live. The Cadillac CT4 will be the sedan of access to the range, and before showing it to us in its natural state, the American company exhibits it for the first time in a V-Series suit.

Insight, like a good Cadillac, the CT4 dilutes its personality with the style of the rest of the family sedans, to the degree of having to go into very specific details to differentiate it. Next, to a CT5, you will identify the CT4 by integrating the vertical daylight to the headlights.
Cadillac Ct4 V 3
Seen from behind, the CT4-V also looks twin to its older brother. At first glance, the main difference is the lid of the trunk with a cleaner design. The capriciousness of its features and the resemblance to a prototype are striking. The CT4-V is, in short, a compact that will not go unnoticed.

320 horses for the … CT4 more powerful?
The last name V-Series in any Cadillac has always been synonymous with colossal engines and dreamy dynamic performance. However, for the new generation of sedans, the sports division of Cadillac seems to have saved the surprises for later – and perhaps for a different surname than V Series.
Cadillac Ct4 V 9
Thus, instead of a V6 or a V8, the Cadillac CT4-V is left with a 2.7-liter four-cylinder turbo engine, capable of generating 320 hp and 369 lb-ft from 1,500 revolutions. The power is managed by a 10-speed automatic transmission and the customer can choose between rear or integral traction.
Cadillac Ct4 V 10
That 320 hp will fit the CT4-V, there is no doubt, but for the rabid behaviour that the V-Series family is used to, a more powerful engine is missing. Its predecessor, the ATS-V, had a V6 Biturbo of 455 hp. Seen this way, the CT4-V falls short. The chassis adopts sports preparations to improve circuit performance and achieve highly accurate driving. It has limited slip differential, ZF VMS dampers and the recognized Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 suspension, as well as a perfect weight distribution between both axles and Brembo brakes on the need to protect my limousine outdoor.
A whole Cadillac inside
That the CT4 is so similar to the CT5 has certain advantages when talking about finishes and equipment. The cabin of the most accessible sedan of the luxury firm of General Motors is far from looking like a step of access to the range. We will find a very good impression of quality and a similar design – not to say identical – to that of his older brothers.
Cadillac Ct4 V 14
In the case of the V-Series version, the CT4-V adopts a specific design steering wheel for this variant, sports seats and a cluster with very useful instruments for sports driving. Added to this are the advanced infotainment of the house and the availability of the semi-autonomous Supercruise driving system.
Cadillac Ct4 V 5
The Cadillac CT4-V is part of the many launches that General Motors prepares for early next year. This sports version opens the way to the launch of traditional versions, with fewer high-performance preparations, more discrete thrusters and luxury-focused equipment.
The Cadillac CT5 wants to be your ‘full size’ at the price of a BMW 3 Series
The range of Cadillac sedans undergoes a process of renovation and restructuring. The CTS, which for many years was placed midway between German sedans and mid-size sedans, says goodbye to make way for the new CT5, a model that takes up its philosophy, but much better focused on fulfilling Cadillac’s purpose: to have a direct rival for BMW 3 Series. The Cadillac CT5 climbs to the stages of the New York Auto Show with a fresh design proposal, faithful to the aesthetic principles of the house, but with less manorial features. Its silhouette is evidence of the intention of the brand to break the mould; It is not a traditional sedan, but one inspired by a fastback. The C-post vanishes at a very steep angle and ends directly with the spoiler.
WITH 4.92 METERS LONG, IT IS CONSIDERABLY LARGER THAN SERIES 3. THE COMPETITION COMES WHEN TALKING ABOUT PRICES AND MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS.
The total length of the CT5 is superior to that of any direct competitor . In fact, with 4.92 meters long, the new Cadillac should face the BMW 5 Series or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, however, by mechanical characteristics and price, Cadillac focuses on a segment below.

A cabin that reinterprets luxury
When it seems that everything is written in terms of luxury, Cadillac offers us a series of interesting technologies for the premium customer. The CT5 has a system called Adaptive Remote Start , which automatically activates convenience functions, such as ventilation / seat heating, climate control or steering wheel heating, depending on the outside temperature.
Cadillac Ct5 19
One of its technological protagonists is the Super Cruise system , which allows autonomous access on limited access roads, without the need for the driver to have his hands behind the wheel – as requested by most adaptive cruising speed control systems with track lane tracking.
Cadillac Ct5 21
When talking about the cab , Cadillac emphasizes five pillars of development: simple interfaces, focus on quality, attention to detail, the authenticity of materials and impeccable manufacturing. The buttons are placed in the same group, arranged under a 10-inch touch screen, which can also be controlled from a knob on the center console.

Rear-wheel drive and sports preparation
As a good Cadillac, the CT5 uses a rear-wheel drive platform . The brand speaks of a “stimulating” driving experience that combines refinement, comfort and performance. It offers Tour, Sport, Snow / Ice and MyMode programs to modify the patterns of transmission change, steering and braking, torque distribution between axles (for versions with integral traction, clear) and exhaust sound.
Cadillac Ct5 20
The range of engines consists of two options, both turbocharged, with cylinder deactivation function, start & stop system and associated with a 10-speed automatic transmission . The first option is four-cylinder and 2.0-liter , capable of developing 237 hp and 258 lb-ft. The second is a 3.0-liter V6 , capable of generating 335 hp and 400 lb-ft.

Following the steps of Series 3, Class C and Volvo S60
Succeeding in the Cadillac CT5 category is not easy. Among its competitors list include top of mind specimens with a long history in the market, such as BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. From the “new school” the Volvo S60, Jaguar XE and Infiniti Q50 arrive to the party .
Cadillac Ct5 11
The Cadillac CT5 will reach the dealers of the brand in the United States this fall and will shine for a striking design, high interior refinement, a superior size and a good level of performance. It will resume the work that the ATS and CTS left pending. In times of electric cars, connected and endowed with autonomous driving technologies, the robustness and capacity of information processing is increasingly important in the automotive industry. Aware of this, General Motors announced today in the United States the launch of new electronic architecture for future products of the automaker. Conceived to enable a new generation of vehicles, the architecture also focuses on active safety and debuts at the end of 2019 on the Cadillac CT5 line 2020, presented recently . According to the company, until 2023 will equip globally most of the models produced and marketed by GM.
