The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing might not have the name recognition or a European brand behind it. But the simple fact is that it is not only the most powerful Cadillac ever but also the cream of the crop in the V8-powered sport sedan category.
Cadillac introduced the all-new performance sedan for the 2022 model year. The Blackwing is the brand's all-out hyper-performance version that bares little resemblance to its siblings, the CT5 and CT5-V. While the V8 sport sedan class keeps dwindling, Cadillac introduces a car with agile handling, comfortable ride, and explosive acceleration to blow the competition out of the water.

Introducing the Exceptional 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing
With a hand-built 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing takes the V8 sports sedan class by storm. This brand-new vehicle is likely the last V8-powered Cadillac to hit the market, and the attention to detail found in it cannot be denied. It takes on and bests rivals such as the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63 by not only simply having more power but by also delivering brilliant ride and handling to match.
The Most Powerful Cadillac Ever
There is no denying that the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is the most powerful Cadillac ever built. It is powered by an updated version of Cadillac's CTS-V's supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine. With a few tweaks here and there, the V8 delivers a whopping 668 horsepower, 659 lb-ft of torque, and an astronomically fast top speed of 321 km/h (when properly equipped).
Drivers can choose between the standard six-speed manual transmission or available 10-speed automatic. While the manual keeps you better connected with the car and allows you to harness its power, the automatic shaves .2 seconds off the acceleration time.
Despite its power and sporty intentions, drivers can get quite a comfortable ride in the Blackwing thanks to different drive modes and Magnetic Ride Control, which reads the road up to 1,000 times per second and adjusts damping for exceptional ride, handling, and control.
A Beautifully Crafted Exterior
While all aspects of the Blackwing are impressive, the first thing that people see is the eye-catching exterior. With artful aerodynamics, it oozes race-inspired refinement with every sweeping line.
Beneath its striking style lays a power structure that is strong but lightweight, rigid but agile. Built to withstand the rigors of the road and the track, the Blackwing is beautifully and scientifically designed with a bold-faced grille, sleek proportions, and aesthetic beauty.
It rests on forged aluminum wheels, which are stronger yet lighter than traditional cast aluminum wheels and offer a reduction in road noise and improvement in track performance. Drivers can choose between three distinct finishes to customise the vehicle in their own way.
Customisation can be elevated even further, as can performance, with two available carbon-fibre exterior packages that add style but also dramatically improve handling and control.
A Race-Inspired Refined Interior
The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is loaded with features that make it stand out in its segment. Lap after lap or mile after mile, occupants are treated to refined luxury in a spacious, well-planned, and high-end interior. The driver-focused cockpit seamlessly blends luxury and performance with details such as a gauge display that includes a lap timer feature and a high-performance steering wheel.
All models of the Blackwing feature seats with genuine leather upholstery, and the driver and front passenger are treated to heated and ventilated seats with 18-way power adjustments. But buyers can customise the race-inspired refinement to match their personality. There are three option levels, each delivering a different masterpiece.
The interior of the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is also home to cutting-edge innovative technology. This includes the 12-inch diagonal high-definition reconfigurable instrument cluster, customisable driver modes, and 10.0-inch touchscreen CUE infotainment display. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless smartphone charging, and 15-speaker AKG audio system are standard as well.

Masterfully balancing power and poise, Cadillac built its most powerful vehicle ever in the 2022 CT5-V Blackwing. Its exterior and interior refinement are magnified by its power and the ability to harness it into one of the most enjoyable rides available today.
