GM Authority will be driving the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing over the next several days, allowing us to learn more about Cadillac’s new performance sedan.
As we already know, the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing launched for the 2022 model year as the range-topping performance variant of the CT4 family. Power comes from GM’s twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine, which produces 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque. All that muscle is sent exclusively to the rear axle by way of either a six-speed manual transmission or the GM 10-speed automatic transmission.
Our tester came equipped with the former of those two transmission options. While it would have been nice to see how the GM 10-speed performs when paired with the LF4 V6, it’s hard to complain about a modern-day vehicle with a manual transmission, rear-wheel drive and nearly 500 horsepower on tap. Our tester is finished in the head-turning Electric Blue exterior color, which costs an extra $600 to equip, as well as the Natural Tan with Jet Black Accents interior colorway.
The car is also dressed in the Carbon Fiber 1 Package, which adds various exterior aerodynamic features to give the super sedan more downforce and, in turn, more grip. The $4,100 package includes a carbon fiber front splitter, front-wheel well deflectors, front dive planes and a rear extra aero rear spoiler.
This example also features the optional Technology Package ($725), Climate Package ($600) and the Performance Data and Video Recorder ($1,600). The MSRP is $72,790 with $995 destination freight charge and $12,800 in optional extras.
Wheel buffs should know that the rollers on this model are the 18-inch alloys with a Polished/Dark Android finish (RPO code R38). These are the standard wheels for the 2022 CT4-V Blackwing, though two other choices are available.
