The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing super sedan comes equipped with the supercharged 6.2L small block LT4 V8, which produces a GM-estimated 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque. For customers who want the best in braking performance to go along with those astounding power figures, Cadillac offers an available carbon ceramic braking system at the tune of $9,000.
Incidentally, brake caliper color options are included in the cost of the upgrade. By comparison, the caliper colors cost an additional $595 for those who forego the carbon ceramic option and stick with the standard, iron-rotor setup.
For those intricately familiar with the options, the 2022 CT5-V Blackwing offers four brake caliper colors: gray – which is standard, along with red, blue, and bronze. The images below show what each option looks like.
In our humble opinion, the bronze caliper option offers the cleanest look, and we’re very interested to see how they look when paired with the Dark Emerald
Matte Frost exterior finish and Satin Graphite wheels. Throw in both of the available carbon fiber aero packages, and we have one dreamy spec worthy of the GM Authority fantasy garage. It should go without saying that we’d opt for the standard six-speed manual transmission, as that’s what truly sets the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing apart from its indirect predecessor, the third-generation CTS-V.
Now that we’ve had a closer look at several options for the new super sedan, including exterior colors, interior colors and materials, carbon fiber packages, and brake caliper color choices, how would you configure your own CT5-V Blackwing? Sound off in the comment section below.
For those who might’ve missed it, the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing made its official debut on February 1st. Pre-orders opened up shortly after the reveal, and the first 250 pre-orders sold out within three minutes. The CT5-V Blackwing, along with the smaller CT4-V Blackwing, are set to arrive this summer as 2022 models.
