The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will be offered with three different wheel choices at launch, including one set of no-cost base wheels and two optional wheels. In this article, we’ll go over the different wheel choices available for the new ultra-performance sedan and point out what sets them apart from one another.
|Wheel Size (inches)||19||19||19|
|Finish||Alloy with Polished/Dark Android finish||Alloy with Satin Graphite dark finish||Aluminum alloy with Tech Bronze finish|
All three wheel choices for the 2022 CT5-V Blackwing measure 19 inches in diameter. The first two are essentially the same wheel design but have different finishes, while the third is a different features an entirely different design.
The standard wheel for the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing carry RPO code Q63. These wheels measure 19 inches in diameter and feature a split multi-spoke design with a Polished/Dark Android finish. This is the no-cost wheel option that all CT5-V Blackwing models will come with unless specified otherwise during the ordering process.
Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing buyers can also order the 19-inch Satin Graphite dark finish wheels, which are a $600 option. These wheels, which carry RPO code Q61, feature the same split multi-spoke design as the standard wheels but have a Satin Graphite finish rather than a Polished/Dark Android finish. These wheels give the CT5-V Blackwing a more sinister appearance thanks to the darker finish.
Lastly, there’s the 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels in the Tech Bronze finish, which carry RPO code RHL. General Motors has not yet revealed the price of these optional wheels, but we’ve been hearing from sources off-the-record that they will be a $1,500 option.
Similarly, we don’t have any information on the magnesium wheels that GM previously announced for the ultra-performance sedan, so we’ll be eagerly awaiting the availability and pricing of these super lightweight and bump-absorbing wheels.
The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is powered by GM’s supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 engine rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful production Cadillac model in history.
