The two Cadillac Blackwing sedans, including the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, offer impressive track capability and performance right out of the box, with optional upgrades like the Carbon Fiber packages upping the ante with tasty composite components front to back. Notably, adding one or both Carbon Fiber packages to either of the Cadillac Blackwing sedans doesn’t actually increase the cost of insurance for the vehicle.
According to GM Authority research, the addition of the Carbon Fiber packages doesn’t make either of the two Cadillac Blackwing sedans more expensive to insure, despite the fact that these packages add several thousand dollars to the overall vehicle price. This is due to the fact that insurance companies rely on the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) in determining a premium, which means the pricey carbon bits are not a factor in that respect.
For those readers who may be unaware, the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing both offer two Carbon Fiber packages. For both vehicles, these packages are called simply Carbon Fiber 1 Package and Carbon Fiber 2 Package. For Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing models, pricing is set at $4,350 for the first package and $2,650 for the second package, while Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing models offer the first package for $4,100 and the second package for $5,230. Note that the second package requires the first when added as an optional upgrade.
For Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing models, content for the first package includes a new front splitter, front wheel well deflectors, front dive planes, and a rear extra aero spoiler, while content for the second package includes new rocker moldings, rocker extensions, and a rear valence diffuser insert. Meanwhile, for Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing models, content for the first package includes a new front splitter, front wheel deflectors, and an extra rear aero spoiler, while the second package includes a new grille header, rocker moldings, and rear valence diffuser.
As a reminder, the CT4-V Blackwing is motivated by the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine, rated at 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque, while the CT5-V Blackwing runs the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque. Both Cadillac Blackwing sedans are produced at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
