The 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is the second model year for the range-topping performance sedan, and the fourth model year for the Cadillac CT5 nameplate. Critically, GM Authority has uncovered a significant pricing change between the upcoming 2023 CT5-V Blackwing and the initial 2022 model year.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing ups the MSRP by $7,000 as compared to the initial 2022 model year. This pricing increase applies to models equipped with the standard manual six-speed transmission, which now starts at $92,390, as well as models equipped with the optional 10-speed automatic transmission, which now start at $95,565. Both prices include the destination freight charge (DFC), which is set at $1,395.
|Trim Level||Drivetrain||Powertrain||2023 MSRP + DFC|
|CT5-V Blackwing||RWD||Supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 w/M6||$92,390|
|CT5-V Blackwing||RWD||Supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 w/A10||$95,565|
In addition to this significant pricing increase, the 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will also offer the GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system as an option, as GM Authority exclusively covered recently. The driver assist tech will be available in conjunction with the Super Cruise 2 package (RPO code WKA), which adds in the Super Cruise feature (RPO Code UKL) as well as a leather-wrapped Super Cruise steering wheel (RPO code N30). To note, Super Cruise is only available in conjunction with the optional 10-speed automatic transmission, and cannot be paired with the standard six-speed manual gearbox.
Further updates over the initial 2022 model year include the deletion of four exterior paint colors, specifically Satin Steel Metallic (paint code G9K), Shadow Metallic (paint code GJI), Infrared Tintcoat (paint code GSK), and Dark Emerald Frost (paint code G7W), while four new hues will be added to the lineup, including Radiant Red Tintcoat (RPO code GNT), Argent Silver Metallic (paint code GXD), Midnight Steel Metallic (paint code GXU) and Maverick Noir Frost (paint code GNW).
Finally, the 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will also offer an enclosed shipping carrier option, once again per exclusive GM Authority coverage.
Under the hood, the CT5-V Blackwing features the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque. Under the skin is the GM Alpha 2 platform, while production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
