Cadillac To Replace Shift Levers In Certain 2023 CT4-V Blackwing Units

Cadillac will replace the Electronic Precision Shift controllers in certain units of the 2023 CT4-V Blackwing, Cadillac Society has learned. 

Affected units involve the 2023 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing assembled with incorrect leather-trimmed shift levers instead of the correct optional sueded microfiber-wrapped shift levers (production code 5CS). The optional sueded microfiber-wrapped shift lever is available only in conjunction with the sueded microfiber-wrapped steering wheel (production code 53S), which together cost $300 to outfit on the luxury sedan. 

To remedy the error, Cadillac will replace the incorrect leather shifters with the correct suede ones. The luxury marque indicated that 205 vehicles were affected by this condition, but it’s important to note that this estimate includes CT4 models as well as those the 2023 CT5 range, including the CT5 Sport, CT5-V, and CT5-V Blackwing. Dealers will service all vehicles subject to this issue through August 31st, 2025 at no cost to owners.

As a reminder, the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing harness the twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 engine, making 472 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque.

Production of the Cadillac CT4 takes place at the Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan, and the luxury sedan rides on the Alpha 2 platform. However, it’s worth noting that assembly of the 2024 model year is currently underway, as production of the 2023 model year ended over the summer.

  1. Why would I trade leather for micro fiber? No thanks

  2. I agree with you wholeheartedly!!

    • I prefer suade to leather.

  3. Especially if the steering wheel is alcantara. Looks great , feels great and doesn’t get cold and hot to the extent that leather does.
