The 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing brings some minor changes to the super sedan for its second model year, but its pricing is quite a bit different, Cadillac Society has learned.
Sources tell us that the starting MSRP of the 2023 CT5-V Blackwing is $7,000 higher than that of the 2022 model year. The price increase affects models that feature the standard six-speed manual transmission, as well as models equipped with the optional 10-speed automatic transmission. Their starting MSRPs have increased to $92,390 and $95,565, respectively. This new pricing includes the destination freight charge, which is $1,395.
|Trim Level||Drivetrain||Powertrain||2023 MSRP + DFC|
|CT5-V Blackwing||RWD||Supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 w/M6||$92,390|
|CT5-V Blackwing||RWD||Supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 w/A10||$95,565|
As a reminder, the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is powered by the supercharged 6.2L V8 engine (production code LT4), which is tuned to deliver a whopping 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, routed exclusively to the rear wheels. The super sedans rides on the luxury marque’s Alpha 2 platform, and is assembled at the Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan. Production of the 2023 model year began on July 18th.
One major notable change to the CT5-V Blackwing for the 2023 model year is the addition of the Super Cruise, the luxury marque’s semi-autonomous driver assist technology, as an extra-cost option. The feature requires that several other convenience packages be added alongside it, and is only available to models outfitted with the 10-speed automatic transmission, meaning that it’s not available with the six-speed automatic transmission.
Additionally, there is an enclosed carrier shipping option available for the 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, which ensures that the super sedan is kept safe from the elements during transport in the U.S. However, this option is only available in the contiguous 48 states, and customers in Alaska and Hawaii are not able to choose this option.

The CT5 would be such a perfect “next buy” vehicle for me, if only they had done a hatchback (like the Audi sportbacks).
I had the same thought. I wonder if the Blackwing needs the extra structure stiffness? Maybe they just wasn’t in the budget as the car was built to a lower price point.
