2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing Canadian Fuel Economy Figures Are Out

With great power comes great fuel consumption – the all-new 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing


  • Blackwing Cadillacs will likely be the last of their kind for GM’s luxury brand.

  • The CT5-V Blackwing is powered by a supercharged LT4 6.2-litre V8.

  • The numbers are considerable, but not unexpected.


In the world of high-powered petrol-burning performance cars, fuel consumption or heavy drinking if you will, is not uncommon. In fact, it’s a given. One of the most anticipate big-power luxury sedans, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, does not escape this rule of thumb.

And we frankly don’t mind it at all. The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is poised to go down in automotive history books as one of the greats. It is powered by a supercharged LT4 6.2-litre V8 that produces 668 horsepower and 659 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,600 rpm. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual or an optional 10-speed automatic. Both send the power to the rear wheels only.

Here are the official numbers:

6-speed manual: 18.3 L/100 km in the city, 11.4 L/100 km on the highway, combined 15.2 L/100 km.

10-speed automatic: 18.1 L/100 km in the city, 10.7 L/100 km on the highway, combined 14.8 L/100 km.

GM Authority compares this data with a 2019 Cadillac CTS-V which also featured a supercharged LT4 V8. Its numbers (17.1 L/100 km in the city, 11.0 L/100 km on the highway, combined 14.3 L/100 km) with the 8-speed automatic transmission are actually lower.
