PERFORMANCE
SEND YOUR PULSE SOARING

Agile, like a world-class athlete. Powerful, like a machine built to stir your soul. These performance masterpieces balance raw power with precise poise on the open road, with CT5-V Blackwing earning the title of most powerful Cadillac ever.
Powertrains

Refined engine power with Active Fuel Management provides fuel efficiency on your daily drive and pure adrenaline on your joyride. Turn heads with the 3.0L Twin-Turbocharged V6 engine in CT5-V, boasting 360 hp (268 kW) and 405 lb.-ft. (550 N-m) of torque. Or unleash the power of the CT5-V Blackwing 6.2L Supercharged V8 engine, delivering 668 hp (498 kW) and 659 lb.-ft. (893 N-m) of torque. It's the highest output engine Cadillac has ever created, and it's built entirely by hand. To celebrate this feat of engineering, the assembler places a signed plaque prominently over the engine cover.



Magnetic Ride Control

Structurally rigid, yet compliant in an instant. The 2022 V-Series family features the latest generation of Magnetic Ride Control which reads the road 1,000 times per second to make your drive responsive and smooth - this means the vehicle is reading every inch of the road at 96 km/h. 
Brembo Performance Brakes

Quiet on the road and proven on the track. Brembo performance front brakes give CT5-V confident pedal feel and secure stopping power. On CT5-V Blackwing, front and rear Brembo high-performance brakes as well as enhanced cooling improve brake performance and fade resistance. In addition, the CT5-V Blackwing is the first Cadillac vehicle to offer carbon-ceramic brakes with cross-drilled rotors, resulting and high-performing. Optimally designed wheel sizes on CT5-V Blackwing result in the largest factory-installed brakes ever on a Cadillac.
FEATURES THAT PUSH PERFORMANCE EVEN FURTHER
 
Rear-Wheel Drive

The foundation for high-performance handling, RWD architecture helps enable ideal front to rear weight distribution, so carving corners is a breeze. For added traction in everyday conditions, CT5-V offers available all-wheel drive. 
 
Transmission

Right gear, right time, guaranteed. The 10-speed automatic transmission, standard on CT5-V and available on CT5-V Blackwing, delivers lighting-fast shifts. CT5-V Blackwing boasts a standard 6-speed manual transmission with active rev matching and no-lift shifting, finished with a hand-polished, 3D-printed medallion atop the gear shifter to honour the true art of driving. 

Tires

Standard summer-only, low-profile tires offer race car aesthetics and encourage spirited driving at every turn. CT5-V Blackwing boasts Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer-only, low profile tires. For athleticism on all occasions, CT5-V offers available all-season low-profile, run-flat tires. 

EXTERIOR
TURN HEADS WHILE TAKING CORNERS

Design you're driven to. Elegant and expressive, the CT5 V-Series combines striking style with excellent functionality. From its bold-faced grille to its sleek, long and low proportions, aesthetic beauty works in tandem with extensively validated aerodynamics, resulting in design that's understated yet riveting both on and off the track.


Artful Aerodynamics

Signature V-Series aesthetics serve a powerful purpose. The mesh grille design directs air to the main radiators, cooler and airflow ducts, while the front splitter and rear spoiler combine to reduce lift and generate traction. CT5-V Blackwing is aero-obsessed, incorporating 11 auxiliary coolers to help feed its powerhouse engine. This is science applied by the hands of a sculptor. 



Carbon Fibre Exterior Packages

To elevate performance design even further, CT5-V Blackwing offers two available Carbon Fibre Packages. More than exterior adornments, aerodynamic touches significantly reduce lift and dramatically improve high-speed handling and control, leaving competition in the dust. 


Lightweight Wheels

Engineered to endure, lightweight aluminum alloy wheels on CT5-V reduce unsprung mass for increased performance and come in a variety of designs and finishes for statement-making stopping power. CT5-V Blackwing features forged aluminum alloy wheels with excellent strength-to-weight ratio, plus laser-etched design details that prove V-Series Blackwing thrills in motion and at rest.
