How To Care For Cadillac Blackwing Maverick Noir Frost Paint5
GM is expanding its offering of eye-catching, top-end satin-matte paint colors with Maverick Noir Frost (color code GNW) in extremely limited availability for two Cadillac Blackwing models this year. Maverick Noir Frost is a satin black hue with a low-intensity velvety sheen, but which also requires some special care to keep it looking its best.
The user manual supplied by GM for the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing, which are the models with Maverick Noir Frost optionally available, gives instructions for care of matte and frost paints. Additional Cadillac Blackwing paint care information comes from the GM TechLink website.
Owners planning to manually clean their Cadillac Blackwing with Maverick Noir Frost paint (or other frost or matte GM paints on different vehicles) should use soft cloths for the task. The surface should be wiped gentle, since vigorous rubbing can leave shiny patches and create an uneven finish.
Hand washing of the frost paint surface should be done with water and liquid car wash soap only. If it becomes necessary to use a bug or tar remover, a mild, non-abrasive formula should be chosen.
When it comes to automatic car washes, the best way to clean a Cadillac Blackwing with Maverick Noir Frost is with a touchless wash. The roller brushes and scrubbers in a standard car wash can easily damage the frost paint finish.
Regardless of whether a manual or automatic wash is chosen for the frost paint on a Cadillac Blackwing sedan, neither polish nor wax should be applied to the cleaned surface, since both can cause unsightly damage to satin-matte paint. Customers should receive a Maverick Noir Frost delivery packet at the dealership when they pick up their vehicle, which contains paint care information.
One of the two Cadillac Blackwing models with available Maverick Noir Frost paint is the 2023 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing. The color is offered as an option only on the Sebring IMSA Edition, one of the three variants of the limited-run CT4-V Track Edition. It is not available on the Road Atlanta IMSA Edition or the Watkins Glen IMSA Edition.
Maverick Noir Frost is also available on the 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing in extremely limited quantities during spring 2023. The paint color can be paired with Jet Black with Jet Black Accents, Natural Tan with Jet Black Accents, or Sky Cool Gray with Jet Black Accents interior colorways. The limited-edition matte paint option is priced at a hefty $8,120.

Would love to see the Earl of Scheib paint match this color.
That paint is a disaster waiting to happen.
You’re better off getting Raven Black and just Xpel Stealthing it.
High maintenance should be left to girl friend only not your car 😂😂😂😂
My recommendation is to not spend the money on inferior ugly paint like this. Problem solved
