2020 Cadillac CT4: Standard Version Time To Shine

 - 

We all got a good look at the 2020 Cadillac CT4-V not too long ago and while it does look amazing, some people were still hoping to see what the standard model will look like when it arrives.

From what we can see, the design will not undergo any major drastic changes. Overall, it is less aggressive but all the crucial features are there. The inside will still be fitted with the 8inch touchscreen.

The V6 engine will no longer be offered now. Instead, what we will be getting for the Sport and Luxury trim option will be the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will be offering about 237hp and 258lb ft of torque. The engine will also be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. No stick option will be offered this time around.

The Premium Luxury trim model will come with the 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will be offering about 309hp and 348lb ft of torque while the CT4-V will offer about 325hp.

So far, no price details have been released yet but Cadillac will open up the order books for the CT4 this year.


Tesla Model S Looking To Take On Taycan

 - 

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S set the bar pretty high at Nurburgring but it looks like Tesla could be looking to beat them.

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S managed to complete the track in 7 minutes and 42 seconds but Elon Musk has now tweeted that they too will be taking their Model S to the Nurburgring track next week.

The vehicle was spotted doing some initial test and the model that spies believe was on the track was the Model S P100D model which is about to offer about 762hp and 723lb ft of torque. That is pretty close to what Porsche had to offer.

It also looks as though Porsche has made some changes to the vehicle like giving it a larger lower grille and wider fender flares. Of course, we do need to take note that the Porsche was tested in stock form.
It will be interesting to see how the Tesla Model S will perform on the track.


GM Latest Recall To Affect More Than 3 Million

A vacuum pump issue in some of the GM SUV and trucks meant that GM had to issue a recall that would affect about 3.46million units of vehicles here in the US.
