Expected in summer 2021, the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will come powered by GM’s supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 is back and rated at 640 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque. It's the same engine used in the Chevy Camaro ZL-1. Both a six-speed manual and a 10-speed automatic will be available.
With an expected starting price tag of around $85,000, the CT5-V Blackwing is part muscle sedan/part luxury vehicle, and will face off against the likes of the BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG E63 S. The BMW M3 may also be considered a rival. Expect many enhancements inside and out, such as optional carbon fiber racing seats, forged magnesium alloy wheels, and plenty of added exterior aerodynamic elements.
