The front section has been summarily redesigned.
The CT5-V Blackwing retains its supercharged V8 engine.
Cadillac celebrates the 20th anniversary of the V-Series family.
The aesthetic changes for the coming model year are subtle, but present nonetheless. The front end has been redesigned, as have the LED headlights. Three new colors have been added to the existing palette: drift metallic, deep space metallic and typhoon metallic. The experience is also enhanced by a set of lights for entering and exiting the vehicle. In the case of the CT5-V Blackwing, we also note the addition of a new carbon fiber package, including a diffuser.
Inside, there’s a 33-inch touchscreen. The system includes a car performance recording function for racetrack users, as well as driver performance analysis and advice/recommendations as required. The screen also features integrated Google technology, including Google Maps and Google Play. Air conditioning, heating and ventilation controls have been reworked.
Under the hood
Mechanically, the offering remains the same. The Cadillac CT5-V 2025 continues to be powered by a 3.0L turbocharged V6 engine. This unit develops 360 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. Consumers can opt for four-wheel drive.
The 2025 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is powered by a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine. It produces 668 hp and 659 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can choose between a six-speed manual transmission and a ten-speed automatic.
The CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing will be officially presented to the public on January 27 and 28 during the Rolex 24 race at Daytona.
Both sedans will be assembled at the General Motors plant in Lansing Grand River, Michigan. Production will start next summer. For the moment, the price range and fuel economy ratings have not been disclosed.
