The Citation CJ4 offers an extensive standard equipment list including a four-screen Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite with electronic charts and graphical weather, TCAS II, EGPWS Class A TAWS, Dual Mode S Diversity transponders with ADS-B out capability, Multi-Scan weather radar, Emergency Descent Mode, and an essential electrical bus.

The Citation CJ4 also offers enhanced performance over early projections with a maximum cruise speed of more than 450 knots (838 km/h) and a maximum range of just over 2,000 nautical miles (3,707 km). It's capable of a direct climb to 45,000 feet (13,716 meters) in just 28 minutes.

The aircraft will also debut the new Williams International FJ44-4A electronically controlled (FADEC) engines. The cabin can be configured for up to eight passengers, plus a standard, belted aft lavatory. The Citation CJ4 also features the Rockwell Collins Venue cabin management system that includes BluRay DVD with HD monitors and XM radio.
