2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing, CT5-V Blackwing, set for Feb 1 Reveal

Race-ready Cadillacs launch after Daytona 24

  • Will these Cadillacs finally zig?

  • Though Blackwing in name only, expect big performance from big sedans


The quickest new Cadillac cars are nearly here. The brand will be revealing the Blackwing versions of the CT4 and CT5 February 1, and if you’re watching the Rolex 24 at Daytona the night before you’ll get a sneak peek of the cars ahead of time.

There’s not much in the teaser trailer for the reveal, other than some great V8 engine sounds and the noise of a manual gearbox being shifted, but here’s what we know already about the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing cars.

Though neither will sport the engine that gives them their name, the 4.2L twin-turbo V8 that went with much fanfare into the CT6-V and later Platinum in depressingly low volumes, they likely won’t long for power. The CT4-V Blackwing is expected to come with a twin-turbo 3.6L V6 making in the neighbourhood of the 464 hp it made in the ATS-V, while the 2022 CT5-V Blackwing is likely to get a 6.2L supercharged V8 that leaked order guides suggest would make it the most powerful Cadillac ever offered. Which means more than 640 hp.

Both cars will come with a six-speed manual transmission, said to be more refined than the model it replaces, and that uses extensive 3D printing to allow it into production, but a 10-speed automatic will also be available. Expect massive brake and suspension upgrades compared with the standard V-Series models.

Cadillac says that they’ll offer “on-track excitement with next-level craftsmanship,” and that the cars will arrive in late summer.
