Cadillac 2021 Blanco CT5.V

2021 Cadillac Outgoing Cadillac CTS-V enthusiasts note that the CT5-V Blackwing is the rightful heir to this performance powerhouse, even though it has a different name. The new car will be powered by the same supercharged V8 engine, but its updated design and new interior are what Cadillac has pinned its hopes on high performance . Blackwing will take on competitors such as the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, the BMW M3 and the Mercedes-AMG C63. To truly win over the world-beating sports sedans, the CT5-V Blackwing must provide more than just horsepower;

You will need to deliver great ride and handling to accompany its brutal acceleration. Based on how well the CTS-V proved to be in our comparison test, we’re looking forward to seeing what the CT5-V Blackwing can offer.

The 2021 CT5-V Blackwing is Cadillac’s lineup of high-performance sedan , expected to be revealed in spring 2021. Don’t confuse yourself with the new naming scheme:

The Cadillac CT5-Vis is now just a sportier trim than the standard CT5; The Blackwing is the brand’s all-in-one high-performance version.

We’re not yet sure how the Cadillac will be outfitted or pricing for the CT5-V Blackwing, nor do we have any details on the available option packages or performance-enhancing features available. We expect the car to start around $85,000, but we’ll have to hold back on suggesting any potential options until the earliest car sale date. For something smaller – and possibly cheaper – check out the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing, which we review separately.

2021 Cadillac Engine, Transmission & Performance

Although Cadillac calls it the CT5-V Blackwing,

We don’t expect the newly developed Blackwing V-8 biturbo engine from the CT6-V to be offered under the hood. Instead, an updated version of the 650-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 will be paired with a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. (This is the same engine that powers the awesome Chevy Camaro ZL-1.)

We didn’t get the chance to drive the new CT5-V Blackwing,

But initial impressions of the standard CT5-V suggest a sharp-handling sedan that should improve further once Cadillac tackles all the performance suspension parts that will undoubtedly be standard on the Blackwing.

fuel economy 

Fuel economy estimates weren’t released for the CT5-V Blackwing, but the outgoing CTS-V didn’t quite drink gasoline. We expect some improvement over the outgoing 14 mpg highway and 21 mpg highway and 16 mpg combined.

But we’re probably not in store for a fuel-economy miracle when we get the CT5-V Blackwing for testing, we’ll be running our usual 200-mile highway fuel-economy route and update this story with the results.

Interior, comfort and cargo 

The CT5-V Blackwing will share its cabin with the standard CT5, which will give the high-performance sedan a reasonably spacious interior with plenty of features and style. We found that the regular CT5 cabin is a mixture of materials

— some good, some really bad — but hopefully you’ll wear the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing to better match the much higher entry price.

While the Blackwing Box will likely be the same size and shape as the regular CT5 

It is possible that Cadillac eliminates the folding rear seat feature to help improve structural rigidity; We’ll know more as the car’s sale approaches. However, we fit five handbags inside a regular CT5 box and that’s a decent space for shipping.

It’s unlikely Cadillac would install a unique infotainment system in the CT5-V Blackwing, which means the car’s standard 10.0-inch touchscreen display, CUE interface, and secondary rotary console in the center console will all travel. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard, as will a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. While the standard CT5 comes with a Bose stereo system as an option, we expect it to be standard here.

Safety and driver assistance features

CT5-V Blackwing has not been tested

by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS);

The normal CT5 has not yet undergone such a test. A range of driver assistance features are expected to be available, either as standard or optional. Key security features will likely include:

 Standard Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

 Standard Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist

 Adaptive cruise control is available with semi-autonomous driving mode

Warranty and maintenance coverage

Compared to competitors such as the M3 and C63, the Cadillac Stan

Warranty and maintenance coverage

Compared to competitors like the M3 and C63,

Cadillac’s Standard Powertrain Warranty provides coverage for a longer period of time and miles. However, Cadillac only covers the first service visit, unlike BMW, which offers three years of free maintenance.

  The limited warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles

  Powertrain warranty covers 6 years or 70,000 miles

  Free maintenance is covered for the first visit.
