Cadillac Announces Awesome Blackwing Variations of the CT4-V and CT5-V
As the premiere Cadillac dealership in Atlanta, we at Cadillac of Lake Lanier are thrilled to bring you the most recent update concerning two new elite choices coming soon for luxury sport sedans in the Cadillac family of vehicles
Blending pulse-pounding performance with uncompromising luxury, Cadillac has recently announced some details concerning the eagerly anticipated Blackwing series of premium sedans.
It's time to officially roll out the hype machine, because the Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V are going to pack plenty of sporty punch with refined luxury to make car buffs around the world take notice. These vehicles are uniquely designed to suit the needs of the discerning car buyer who is looking for not only more bang for the buck, but also to catch the attention of everyone in their path.
Unfortunately, we may have to wait a bit longer than originally expected to actually get our hands on one. Both cars were originally slated to debut later in 2020, but due to the most recent COVID-19 pandemic, the release date for the Blackwing version has been delayed until sometime in the first quarter of 2021. Fear not, because early reports indicate that the end result will be well-worth the wait. Read on for details...
The Blackwing moniker is meant to indicate the pinnacle of performance and craftsmanship among the Cadillac brand. The CT4-V Blackwing edition is expected to feature aggressive styling on its exterior with a classically designed luxurious interior. Whether viewing from the inside or outside, this car will not disappoint.
Performance wise, nothing has been etched in stone yet, but the CT4-V Blackwing is expected to feature a turbocharged V-6 that will satisfy the thrill seeker in anyone who feels the need for speed. Performance is further enhanced by a specially tuned chasis and advanced vehicle stability technology that enables tighter handling and better feel. The Cadillac brand has always been synonymous with superior drivability, but the Blackwing models take that notion a step further.
Although a manual transmission is standard to satisfy the driving purists of the world, a 10-speed automatic is expected to made available as well. It's enough to make one wonder if 10 speeds are really necessary in an automatic transmission, but we suspect that once we drive one, the answer will be yes.
Boasting even more horsepower than the CT4-V, the engine roar of the CT5-V is a particularly fun feature to experience; so much that Cadillac actually put an audio sample on their website. Click the link; it's like listening to a Beethoven symphony for gear heads. Beethoven turns into Metallica, however, if the rumors of a 6.2 V-8 with the potential for 640 horsepower and 0-60 in under three seconds are true. That reality would make the CT5-V an absolute beast on the test track and a passing blur on the highway.
Beyond the noticeably bigger engine, the CT5-V will have the same advanced vehicle stability controls and standard manual transmission as the CT4-V. Although it's tough to imagine opting for the automatic if you're thinking about acceleration to this level.
