According to Cadillac Product and Brand Communications, Sedans, Stefan Cross, the Dark Emerald Frost paint option (color code G7W) was a limited, promotional hue only offered for the 2022 Cadillac Blackwing sedans.
“There’s a chance we could bring it back for future model years, but that has not been decided upon yet,” Cross told GM Authority.
The Dark Emerald Frost paint has a matte finish that looks quite good on the chiseled, aggressive Cadillac Blackwing body panels. The paint color was previously known as Dark Emerald Matte before General Motors renamed the hue. Pricing for the optional color was $3,925, making it the most-expensive paint option in the Cadillac Blackwing lineup, followed by Infrared Tintcoat at $1,225
Earlier this month, GM Authority brought you some of the very first real-world images of a 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing finished in Dark Emerald Frost, with the paint complemented by 19-inch alloy wheels with Polish/Dark Android accents and both the Carbon Fiber 1 and Carbon Fiber 2 aerodynamics packages.
For those who may not remember, the Cadillac Blackwing sedans are offered as the top performers in their respective model lines.
The CT4-V Blackwing is equipped with the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine, rated at 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque, sending output rearwards through either a six-speed manual, or a 10-speed automatic. Meanwhile, the CT5-V Blackwing is equipped with the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, also mating to either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.
