GM has issued a software update for the various modules on the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing.
A service bulletin sent out by GM recently indicates that certain 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing units “may have modules that require software updates to improve performance.” It’s not clear which modules this software update applies to and how it may impact the vehicle, although we do not anticipate it will result in actual performance improvements. Instead, this update likely relates to the way the CT5-V Blackwing’s various systems and modules operate and interact with each other. It does not seem as though this update can be performed over-the-air, so owners of affected vehicles will be instructed to take their vehicle in to a dealership to have the updated software installed.
GM recently applied a minor price change to the 2022 model-year Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, as we reported earlier this month. The automaker bumped the cost of this model’s destination freight charge up by $400 from $995 to $1,395, pushing the base price to $85,390 for units equipped with the standard six-speed manual transmission. Units equipped with the optional GM 10-speed automatic transmission will start at $88,565.
As GM Authority covered previously, the 2023 model-year Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will receive small changes. This will include the deletion of four specific paint colors from the lineup, along with the addition of four new hues, including Maverick Noir Frost. The 2023 CT5-V Blackwing will also receive an optional enclosed shipping carrier option, which will be included as standard for all CT5-V Blackwing 120th Anniversary edition units.
The CT5-V Blackwing comes standard with the supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 gasoline engine, which is rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque. The high-performance sedan rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform, while production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
