The latest Cadillac Blackwing sedans are some of the most exciting facets of the luxury marque’s portfolio, offering high-strung, track-ready performance, mated to the backside-coddling and comfort expected of a Cadillac vehicle. Naturally, performance enthusiasts are eager to know where Cadillac Blackwing will head next, and according to Cadillac Chief Engineer Tony Roma, more Blackwing and V-Series models are on the way.
“The V-Series lineup has expanded,” Roma said in a recent interview. “You’re going to see more of that in the future. We’re going to do more V-Series. It’s important to our brand and you’ll see it on other products.”
As it stands now, Cadillac offers the V-Series treatment on the CT4 and CT5 sedans, representing a step up in performance over the Cadillac CT4 Sport and Cadillac CT5 Sport. However, for those enthusiasts hungry for more, there’s also the new Cadillac Blackwing CT4-V and CT5-V. As Roma points out, the Blackwing treatment is exclusive to the fastest of the go-fast Caddy models, and luckily, more Blackwings are indeed on the way.
“Blackwing is reserved for really the pinnacle, the purest expression of performance, track capability, and that’s what it’s going to stand for going forward,” Roma said during a recent interview. “[The CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blacking] won’t be the last Blackwing cars that we do, but you won’t see one on every vehicle. It’s not appropriate. I couldn’t imagine doing an Escalade-V Blackwing. Maybe we’d do an SUV, maybe we’d do an Escalade-V, who knows.”
As GM Authority covered previously, General Motors is planning a go-faster Escalade model, which is speculated to feature the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine under the hood, the same powerplant found in the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing and third-generation CTS-V. This could still fit the criteria of a Cadillac Escalade-V model, while falling under the hardcore track performance of a full-fledged Cadillac Blackwing.
