The refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing has officially made splashdown, once again slotting in at the top of the Cadillac CT5 performance hierarchy as the most track-worthy offering of the lineup. Updates for the 2025 model year include new styling, a new cabin, and additional standard tech features. General Motors unveiled the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5 this past September, but only the Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Sport trim levels – not the CT5-V Blackwing.
The refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing introduces a redesigned front-end, once again showing off a variety of high-performance styling cues. The lines are crisp and sharp, with updated aero ground effects and new front fenders as well. There’s also redesigned Cadillac stacked signature vertical lighting and LED headlamps in the corners. Customers will once again have access to variety of carbon fiber aero components via the updated Carbon Fiber Package, which incorporates a splitter element. There’s also quad trapezoidal exhaust tips in the rear, while three new exterior colors are on offer – Drift Metallic, Deep Space Metallic, and Typhoon Metallic.
Moving inside, the 2025 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing now features a large 33-inch-diagonal LED display mounted high on the dash. Performance enthusiasts will also enjoy the in-vehicle Performance Data Recorder, which includes a Lap Analyzer tool, an overhauled user interface, Speed Tips, a live data feed in the center stack, an intuitive database of tracks, and head-up display.
The GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist feature is also included as standard for models equipped with the optional automatic transmission.
Speaking of the greasy bits, the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing once again draws motivation from the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while the GM 10-speed auto box is optional. Launch Control with Line Lock, Magnetic Ride Control, Performance Traction Management, and Brembo front and rear brakes are all included as standard.
The refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will be on display at the Rolex 24 at Daytona at the end of the month, also serving as the official safety car for the race. Production will once again take place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant, with a launch expected for the summer months. Pricing details will be released closer to the start of regular production.
