There are two Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing trims, but their specs are essentially identical, and the limited nature of the Anniversary Edition means that it doesn't really warrant a permanent spot on the roster. The sports sedan is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine producing 668 hp and 659 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but you can choose between a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Standard specifications include a ten-inch infotainment screen with the latest connectivity features and a 16-speaker sound system, a 12-inch configurable digital instrument cluster, a head-up display, dual-zone climate control, and power-adjustable front seats with both heating and ventilation. In addition to these luxuries, you also get LED headlights, keyless entry and start, a surround-view camera, wireless phone charging, forward collision warning with automatic braking up to 50 mph, front and rear parking sensors, rear pedestrian detection, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic assist. Adaptive cruise control is only available with the automatic gearbox.
There are two standalone options worth mentioning. You can pay either $2,890 or $8,090 for the high-performance front bucket seats. The price depends on what you want them wrapped in, with semi-aniline leather requiring a higher premium.
As for the packages, Cadillac charges a reasonable $900 for the Driver Assistance Package on the automatic model. Or at least, that's what it looks like when configuring your new Blackwing. In reality, this package is automatically added when you choose the automatic gearbox, so calling it an optional extra is a bit of a misnomer. It includes adaptive cruise control, enhanced automatic emergency braking and reverse automatic braking. The $710 Parking Package includes a rear camera mirror, cabin air ionizer, and hands-free decklid release.
The exterior options include the $5,350 Carbon Fiber 1 Package, which adds a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber front wheel deflectors, and a carbon fiber extra aero spoiler. The Carbon Fiber 2 Package adds a carbon fiber grille header, rocker moldings and extensions, and rear valance diffuser but requires you to add the previous package for a total of $11,830. The carbon ceramic brake option costs a hefty $9,000.
