First breaking cover in July, pricing for the new 2023 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing Track Edition models has yet to be revealed. That said, GM Authority exclusively covered pricing information for the “standard” 2023 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing, which is now $1,500 more expensive than equivalent 2022 model-year vehicles. Models equipped with the standard GM six-speed manual transmission now start at $61,890, while models equipped with the optional GM 10-speed automatic start at $65,065. Note that prices listed include the destination freight charge ($1,395).
Beyond the aesthetic upgrades, the 2023 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing Track Edition models all feature the same twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine as the “standard” CT4-V Blackwing. Output is once again rated at 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque, while under the skin, the CT4 rides on the GM Alpha 2 platform. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
