The two Cadillac Blackwing performance sedans, including the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, both offer some impressive performance specs, arriving as the most track-capable production models to ever wear the Caddy crest. Interestingly, both four-doors feature a special cockpit dark mode that helps to enhance the driver’s night vision.
To enable dark mode in the cabin of either Cadillac Blackwing model, simply scroll the cabin dimmer switch all the way down. Doing this will change the theme of the instrument panel and turns off nearly every light in the cabin, save for those that are absolutely necessary to the activity of driving at night.
With dark mode enabled, there’s less light in the cabin, thus reducing eye strain for the driver during night driving. Notably, the Chevy Corvette C8 also features a similar night mode setting.
As we can see, the difference between the standard cockpit lighting in the Cadillac Blackwing models and dark mode is substantial. The setting affects the light levels emitted by the instrument panel and the gauge cluster.
As a reminder, both the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing feature the 12-inch diagonal HD color reconfigurable driver display as standard. The display is tagged with RPO code UDV.
As for the Cadillac Blackwing sedan specs, the CT4-V Blackwing cradles the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine, rated at 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque, while the CT5-V Blackwing cradles the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque. Both models offer either the GM six-speed manual or the GM 10-speed automatic with regard to transmission options, with all configurations feeding the rear wheels exclusively.
