Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing Price Undercuts BMW M3

Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing Price Undercuts BMW M3”

The CT5-V Blackwing has a 6.2-liter supercharged 668-hp V-8 engine with 659 pound-feet of torque. But now, Cadillac have revealed the top of the line model in the CT4 range, the 2022 CT4-V Blackwing, and performance and pricing has it set to compete right where it has always belonged: the BMW M3.

Thanks to all these changes, the twin-turbo V6 produces 472 hp (352 kW / 479 PS) and 445 lb-ft (603 Nm) of torque.

The CT6-V, which has been discontinued, was the one Cadillac powered by a Blackwing engine. That being said, the old ATS-V started at $68,790 in 2019 when it went out of production, around $9,000 more than the CT4-V Blackwing, and produced slightly less power, at 464 hp. That's an increase of 8 hp (6 kW / 8 PS) and it enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour (0-96 km/h) in approximately 3.8 seconds.

The Cadillac then is cheaper and less slightly powerful than some of its compact sports sedan competition, but more expensive and powerful than the subcompact sports sedan segment, which includes the mid-$50,000 Audi RS3 and Mercedes CLA 45 AMG.

Regardless of the transmission, the CT5-V Blackwing comes with rear-wheel drive, an electronic limited-slip rear differential and the fourth-generation of Magnetic Ride Control (MR 4.0) adaptive dampers.

Highlights include detailed primary and secondary grilles, rear spoiler, front splitter, mid-body panels, rear diffuser, fender vents, and rocker extensions, full LED exterior lighting, underbody panels that support drag reduction, and Brembo brake calipers available in grey, blue, red, and bronze.

According to Cadillac, the CT5-V Blackwing has undergone extensive validation testing to ensure consistent performance on track, with the automatic variant being subjected to 24 hours of continuous track testing, while it's 12 hours with the manual transmission.

The 2022 Blackwing fashions are constructed on Cadillac's rear-wheel-drive structure.

The CT4-V Blackwing gets numerous upgrades over the regular CT4-V.

Cross-drilled carbon-ceramic discs are available as an option on the CT5-V, saving a total of 24kg of unsprung mass. Both cars use Cadillac-specific Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires with unique compound and tread. General Motors estimates that its high observe pace is over 200 miles per hour, and it could actually go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds utilizing the automated transmission. Cadillac has also thrown in an AKG audio system for the V-Series Blackwing models. Its 12-inch digital instrument cluster is also fully customisable and can display the likes of acceleration times and G-force data.

It offers a 3D-printed gear shifter, leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, and a multifunctional power steering wheel.
