The CT5-V Blackwing is expected to make its debut before the end of 2023 given that this variant has already been observed in the wild this year. Early 2024 should see the start of sales. Mid-cycle improvements are anticipated for the rest of the CT5 model lineup, but they won’t be as aggressive for the less potent variants. Nonetheless, the revised cabin should be available for the whole CT5 lineup.
Old vs New
Cadillac is preparing to update the high-performance CT5-V Blackwing. Revamped styling features aggressive bumper, closer lower openings, and camouflage concealing single-piece vertical daytime running lights.
Cadillac’s CT5-V Blackwing features camouflage on the rear, but no significant changes to the powertrain. Its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine produces 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, and can reach 60 miles per hour in 3.4 seconds.
The Cadillac CT5 sedan will likely adopt the cabin layout from the XT4 crossover, featuring a 33-inch digital instrument cluster and infotainment display. This may lead to Cadillac tweaking the IP stack and center console layouts. The updated sedan is expected to hit dealers by mid-next year, starting at $94,890. Well-equipped models can cost over six figures.
