In conjunction with the global debut of the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing in the United States, the new 2025 Cadillac CT5 V-Series sedans were confirmed in the Middle East – the only market outside the United States and Canada where the brand’s high-performance line is sold.
GM’s Middle East subsidiary confirmed its plans to introduce the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5 V-Series line, composed of the performance-focused CT5-V and the high-performance CT5-V Blackwing that top the successful sports sedan range. The announcement was made within the framework of the international celebration of Cadillac V-Series’ twentieth anniversary, as the maximum expression of Cadillac design, performance and technology.
“The CT5 is Cadillac’s best-selling vehicle, globally,” said Global Cadillac Vice President, John Roth, in a statement. “As V-Series celebrates a record year, the importance of this option for those customers who value performance and power cannot be overstated” he added.
The main new features of the refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing include an updated exterior design that combines striking style with deliberate functionality, whose front fascias offer stronger visual cues that further differentiate them from each other. The interiors also feature a more sophisticated dashboard thanks to the massive 33-inch curved screen, as well as greater attention to detail, material quality and craftsmanship.
For its part, the V-Series models maintain the same power and performance that owners expect from Cadillac’s precision driving and handling philosophy. The 2025 Cadillac CT5-V continues with the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 LGY engine with 360 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque, while the 2025 CT5-V Blackwing is equipped with the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 engine generating 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet. Both are equipped with GM’s 10-speed automatic transmission.
The refreshed 2025 Cadillac CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing are expected to officially launch on go on sale in Middle East countries during the first half of the 2025 calendar year. Units will continue to arrive in the region imported from GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan. Additional details on the equipment of both models and the specific availability date will be announced closer to launch.
