The 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing is once again available with two driver assist features previously under constraint as a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage, GM Authority has learned.
The two features in question include Front and Rear Park Assist, tagged with RPO code UD5, and Reverse Automatic Braking, tagged with RPO code UVZ. Both features are once again available as of April 10th production, and were previously under constraint since January 24th production.
Front and Rear Park Assist is normally included as standard in the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing. Meanwhile, Reverse Automatic Braking is included as standard for units of the CTV-4 Blackwing equipped with the automatic transmission, but not for units equipped with the six-speed manual transmission.
To note, Front and Rear Park Assist, as well as Reverse Automatic Braking are both still under constraint for the rest of the 2022 Cadillac CT4 lineup as well as the Cadillac CT4-V. Both features are normally equipped as standard for 2022 Cadillac CT4-V, Premium Luxury and Sport, but are not offered on the 2022 Cadillac CT4 Luxury trim level.
As GM Authority has covered extensively in the past, the global microchip shortage has impacted a swath of GM vehicles and features. For example, several 2022 Cadillac models are currently built without ventilated seat blower motors. That said, some of the features previously under constraint are now making a return, including heated steering wheels.
Under the hood, the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing features the twin-turbo 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine, rated at 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque. It rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform, while production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
