Details on the up-and-coming 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing continue to trickle in, providing tantalizing hints about what to expect from the two new super sedans. Among the most important details is the news that both Blackwing models are slated to go on sale in the summer of 2021.
Previous reports have indicated that the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing would hit dealers in the first half of the 2021 calendar year. Back in April, GM Authority covered the news that the launch of Caddy’s two new Blackwing sedans had been delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Both models were originally expected to launch late in the 2020 calendar year.
General Motors also confirmed that the new high-performance Cadillac sedans would use the Blackwing name, offering the “apex of Cadillac performance and driver engagement.” Caddy later provided us with a teaser of the new CT5-V Blackwing accelerating, giving us a taste of the blown V8’s aggressive exhaust note.
Subsequent spy photos revealed that the new CT5-V Blackwing would also come with a wild new 19-inch wheel package, which included a multi-spoke layout with a satin bronze color and finish. The new wheels were seen wrapped in Michelin Pilot tires, sized at 275/35ZR19 in front, and 305/30ZR19 in back.
August brought another new teaser, this time looking at the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing sport steering wheel, which included multi-function design with several buttons placed at thumb’s length, as well as a red top center mark. What’s more, the teaser came with a small Easter Egg suggesting that the more-powerful model of the two super sedans would top the 200-mph mark. A follow-up teaser in September included news that the four-doors would come with “racing-inspired, carbon fiber seats.”
Finally, just a few days ago, GM Authority reported that the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing would come with the option for forged magnesium wheels.
