The new Cadillac Blackwing sedans, including the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, are the most track-worthy vehicles the brand has ever offered, stuffing monstrous horsepower under the hood without sacrificing luxury in the cabin. Now, we’re taking a closer look at these go-faster sedans, revealing the curb weights of both as they relate to previous V-Series Cadillac models.
Both of the Cadillac Blackwing sedan models are equipped as standard with a six-speed manual transmission, while a 10-speed automatic transmissions is an available option. As such, there’s a weight difference depending on the transmission selected, so we included the curb weight for both combinations on both vehicles.
When it comes to comparisons to between the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and older Cadillac V-Series models, the most obvious parallel is the Cadillac ATS-V Sedan. After all, both models are closely related in terms of body size, and both are equipped with the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 engine (albeit in different states of tune). That said, the CT4-V is roughly 100 pounds heavier than the ATS-V Sedan, with manual-equipped models weighing 3,860 pounds (versus 3,760 pounds for the ATS-V) and automatic-equipped models weighing 3,900 pounds (versus 3,812 pounds for the ATS-V).
Then we have the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, which can be compared to the third-generation Cadillac CTS-V, as both are equipped with the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 (albeit in different states of tune). However, this comparison should take into consideration the CT5-V Blackwing’s completely different body and exterior dimensions, including a longer wheelbase and shorter overall length.
Nevertheless, curb weight is remarkably similar between these two, with the automatic-equipped CT5-V Blackwing tipping the scales at 4,142 pounds, as compared to the third-gen CTS-V’s 4,141 pounds.
