 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing And CT5-V Blackwing Revealed Ahead Of Debut

Hype is building up around Cadillac’s Blackwing models and GM is feeding it


  • 60-second teaser video shared at weekend’s Rolex 24 at Daytona race.

  • Full specs to be given later on today.


This past weekend was the running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona, a series that Cadillac takes very seriously. It was at this event that Cadillac opted to released not only some teaser images of the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing And CT5-V Blackwing but to share a 60-second teaser video of the two super-Caddies.

The message sent out by the video is very clear: These are the two most track-capable Cadillacs ever. GM’s luxury brand has been racing with a fair amount of success over the last few years and if we are to believe (which we do) that they’ve infused some of the know-how and experience into the Blackwings, then they will be fast.

We already have a handful of information on the two cars, namely engines, output, and drivetrain. That information was leaked late last week but here’s a brief recap:

The CT4-V Blackwing will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.6-litre V6 that will produce about 450 horsepower. Transmission options will be between a 6-speed manual transmission and a 10-speed automatic that will send the power to the rear wheels only.

The CT5-V Blackwing will get 650 horsepower from the C7 Z06 Corvette’s supercharged 6.2-litre V8. It too will be offered with a 6-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission, and RWD and AWD will be available.
