2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing Exterior and Dimensions

Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing Exterior Design Rating

2023 CT5-V Blackwing Exterior

It's easy to tell the new CT5-V Blackwing apart from the standard CT5. It comes with loads of model-specific exterior enhancements, including a front splitter, rear spoiler, rear diffuser, fender vents, and rocker extensions. It also gets full LED exterior lights, and Brembo brakes with calipers in grey as standard, or in blue, red, or bronze at additional cost. Most of the exterior enhancements are functional. The larger grille openings do a much better job of directing the airflow to the radiators, while the front splitter reduces lift at high speed. The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is not subtle, and we like that. 19-inch wheels are standard and a power sunroof is available. The final difference is also the most noticeable. It has quad exhaust pipes that emit a shallow rumble that excites gearheads while emotionally scarring Prius drivers.

The CT5-V Blackwing rides on a 116-inch wheelbase, placing it between the BMW 3 Series and BMW 5 Series in size. The overall length is 194.9 inches and it's 74.1 inches wide without mirrors. Thanks to its 56.5-inch height, you should have no problems getting in and out. The CT5-V is on the heavier side, though. A BMW M3 weighs 3,840 pounds, while an M5 weighs in at 4,345 lbs. The CT5-V sits right in the middle of the two while producing more power than both. With 668 hp on tap, the curb weight of 4,123 lbs (4,142 with automatic) was never going to be a problem.
