2021 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing
The 2021 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is an upcoming, high-performance version of the company’s midsize sedan. Set to become the range-topping version of the current CT5, the Blackwing will slot above the CT5-V. Performance-wise, the 2021 CT5-V Blackwing will be the first true successor to the CTS-V, as the CT5-V doesn’t fill the bill in terms of power and torque. On top of a powerful V-8 engine with more than 600 horsepower, the 2021 CT5-V Blackwing will also feature a more aggressive exterior and a revised interior with unique features and upgrades. Find out what to expect from this beefed-up sedan from our speculative review below.
2020 Cadillac CT5-V
The 2020 Cadillac CT5-V is a higher performance version of the 2020 CT5, the midsize sedan that replaced the old CTS in 2019. Nameplate-wise, the 2020 CT5-V is a replacement for the CTS-V, but the redesign is rather lackluster in the performance department. While the CTS-V had in excess of 600 horsepower and delivered more oomph than the competition, the CT5-V’s V-6 engine slips below the 400-horsepower rating. So while it can compete with cars like the 2019 BMW 5 Series and 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class in terms of styling, features, and technology, the CT5-V doesn’t replace the CTS-V as a competitor for the beefed-up 2019 BMW M5 and 2019 Mercedes-AMG E63. Check out our review to find out why.
2020 Cadillac CT5
The Cadillac CT5 is the company’s long-anticipated replacement for the already iconic CTS. Spotted testing for more than a year now, the CT5 was unveiled in March 2019 and made its public debut at the 2019 New York Motor Show. The CT5 broke cover with a surprising design. While the CTS is a traditional three-box sedan with a long deck lid, the CT5 is more of a fastback sedan, with a sloping roof that descends toward the edge of the rear fascia.
Needless to say, it’s an interesting approach for an automaker that just axed all four-door sedans save for the flagship CT6. The CT5 also boasts a brand-new interior that includes more premium materials, better fit and finish, and state-of-the-art technology. It’s also packed with new driving assistance systems, as well as an innovative semi-autonomous system. Power comes from a couple of turbocharged engines, but the CT5 still lacks a high-performance variant. Let’s take a closer look at Cadillac’s new midsize sedan in the review below.
