General Motors just debuted the latest go-fast Caddy sedans, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing and 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing, in a joint debut on February 1st. Now, we’re taking a look at the CT5-V Blackwing strutting its stuff in Black Raven paint with the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
Black Raven is offered as a no-cost option for the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, with a total of ten exterior colors on the table.
As of this writing, these photos are thought to be the first images of the new high-performance four-door out in the wild in full production regalia. Arriving as the top-tier model in the current Cadillac performance lineup, the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing mates sumptuous luxury with a variety of track-ready upgrades, giving it some serious sporting cred.
Up front, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is equipped with a reshaped fascia design, which includes a new front splitter treatment. The air intakes in the sides of the bumper are reshaped as well, while the lower intake section is wider and taller than the standard Cadillac CT5-V.
Moving into the flanks, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing rides on 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, which are wrapped in low-profile, summer-only high-performance rubber. Wheel width is staggered at 10 inches in front, and 11 inches in the rear. The rollers featured here get a black finish to match the black exterior paint. Small vents are placed just behind the front wheels.
Finally, the rear end of the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing completes the look with a subtle trunk spoiler, as well as a quartet of exhaust pipes housed by a subtle diffuser lower in the rear fascia. Even more visual punch is available with the available 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing carbon fiber packages.
As for the greasy bits backing all these performance cues, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is powered by the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, the same powerplant equipped by the third-generation Cadillac CTS-V. Output in the CT5-V Blackwing is rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, which sends the sedan to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds.
