Though I’d really like to have the mrc shocks, GM did a really nice job with the regular shocks. The ride in my CT4-V is a lot more sophisticated than in my ATS with the luxury package. The CT4 handles bumps and road irregularities a lot better. I was expecting my V to ride even more stiffly than my ATS and am please to say it is greatly improved without sacrificing handling.
My CT4-V rides like a sporty luxury car should. My ATS wasn’t refined enough for the luxury segment – handled great and communicated what the chassis was doing, great characteristics for sport cars but it was at the expense of the luxury feel.
Bought a 2021 CT4 luxury premium RWD with the optional 4.7L engine, pretty similar to the V in many respects. Love it and the power on demand is stunning. I prefer the design of the CT4 to the CT5, which has those strange pillars just behind the rear windows. Makes it look like a Chevy Cruze. I DO NOT like the stop-start “technology”, which I always turn off.
