Cadillac CT-5 Blackwing: official pic...





I have n doubt the new 2022 Cadillac CT-5 Blackwing is a great car to drive.
The one I drove a few months ago with the 3.0 Liter V6 turbo was great. The CT-5 is also one of these cars that do look better in the flesh.
The return of the 6-speed manual is fantastic. And the Blackwing seats look really nice (although that headrest seems pretty flat...)
While the CT-5 interior is really solid and well put together. Its design is not really up to the most modern competition.
Especially since the new Escalade made all current Cadillac interiors look really old. The CT-5 needs a similar upgrade inside badly. (So do all Cadillac models)

Otherwise, the CT-5 Blackwing continues the V tradition of crazy power, with 668HP from its 6.2 Liter V8.
The new CT-5 V Blackwing starts at $85 000. Which is about $10 000 more than the old CTS V.

The CTS-V was a very special (and crazy) car. We'll see if this new one gets the same attention from the hard core fans.

I refuse to get excited about these mildly updated CTS-V and ATS-V cars. Old chassis, old powertrain, but now with a slightly better interior and a nonsensical name.

It looks fine. I will not buy it.

Say hello to the last ever V series sedans. There may be one EV-V sedan in the future, but these appear to be the last hurrah.

Why does Cadillac even bother anymore.....

While I actually like this alot, I still wish they would have used a version of the more modern Blackwing engine, last seen in the discontinued CT-6. Can't fault any high performance luxury sports sedan with a manual transmission though. Glad both the CT-4 and 5 are doing their part to #savethemanual
