The 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will not be available with four exterior colors that were offered on the performance sedan for the 2022 model year, GM Authority has learned.
The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will drop the following four paint colors after the 2022 model year (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Satin Steel Metallic (G9K)
- Shadow Metallic (GJI)
- Infrared Tintcoat (GSK)
- Dark Emerald Frost (G7W)
While four paint colors will be dropped from the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing order books for the 2023 model year, the performance sedan will also add four new exterior hues. These will include the following (all premium paint options available at extra charge):
- Radiant Red Tintcoat (GNT)
- Argent Silver Metallic (GXD)
- Midnight Steel Metallic (GXU)
- Maverick Noir Frost (GNW, limited availability)
As GM Authority reported previously, Maverick Noir Frost is the new matte exterior color for the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, replacing the outgoing Dark Emerald Frost. These matte exterior colors are typically quite pricy, with Dark Emerald Frost adding $3,925 to the vehicle’s price tag, and also require some special care when washing the vehicle.
A 120th Anniversary Edition has been added for the second model year of the high-performance sedan. Otherwise, the 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will be mechanically identical to the 2022 model year, featuring the same supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 659 pound-feet of torque at 3,600 rpm. Output is routed exclusively to the rear wheels by way of either the standard GM six-speed manual transmission, or the optional GM 10-speed automatic. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Lansing, Michigan.
