Cadillac Society was given the opportunity to drive a brand-new 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing to get a first-hand feel for the super sedan’s performance, and we want you in on the conversation.
The 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing is all-new for the 2022 model year. It represents the most powerful vehicle in the Cadillac CT4 range, harnessing a set of twin turbochargers bolted to the 3.6L V6 engine (production code LF4). It’s capable of throwing 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque, routed exclusively to the rear wheels via either the standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional 10-speed automatic.
Our test vehicle is equipped with the six-speed manual transmission. We’re certainly not complaining, but it would have been interesting to see how the ultra-high-performance luxury sedan would handle with the 10-speed automatic. The test vehicle is painted in the eye-catching Electric Blue exterior color, which is a premium option that costs $600 to equip. Inside, it features an interior finished in Natural Tan with Jet Black Accents.
This Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing also has the Carbon Fiber 1 package equipped, which gives it a set of various exterior carbon fiber accents. The package, which has a price tag of $4,100, includes a carbon fiber front splitter, front-wheel well deflectors, front dive planes and a rear extra aero spoiler. Not only do these add-ons look good, they lend more downforce to the super sedan, and in turn, more grip and forward bite.
This gorgeous blue CT4-V Blackwing rides on a set of 18-inch alloy wheels finished in Polished/Dark Android (production code R38), which are the standard wheels. Other premium options are available.
Our tester is also dressed up with the optional Technology Package ($725), Climate Package ($600), along with the Performance Data and Video Recorder ($1,600). The MSRP is $72,790 with a $995 destination charge and $12,800 in optional add-ons.
