The Cadillac Blackwing sedans are two highly desirable four-doors, offering a combination of track-ready performance and a heap of luxurious comfort to boot. The question is, who are the customers that actually buy the Cadillac Blackwing sedans? According to Cadillac, the average age may be younger than you expect.
During a recent media briefing attended by GM Authority, Cadillac Vice President Rory Harvey revealed the average purchase age for the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing as 54 years old, while the average purchase age for the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing was revealed as 56 years old.
“The good thing with our sedan sales is that the average age in terms of the demographic is reducing, so we are starting to attract a younger demographic,” Harvey said.
Harvey’s statements mirror a previous GM Authority report publish in August of 2021. As covered previously, the average Cadillac Blackwing customer is 10 years younger than non-Blackwing customers, per Cadillac Chief Engineer Tony Roma.
“When you really get into [V-Series] and then what we’ve seen already with V Blackwing is the average age is yet again lower,” Roma said during a drive-along on Jay Leno’s Garage. “When you get the V Blackwing, it’s more than 10 years younger than the average Cadillac buyer that’s coming in and buying one of these [Cadillac Blackwing sedans].”
Of course, all that shouldn’t really be too surprising considering the performance on tap with the two Cadillac Blackwing sedans. Under the hood of the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing, you’ll find the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 LF4 gasoline engine, which is rated at 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque, while under the hood of the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, you’ll find the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, which is rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque. Throw in some carbon-tastic styling upgrades and other performance-oriented goodies, and the two Cadillac Blackwing sedans have what it takes to make anyone feel young.
