    I too have sinking feeling that if I’m going to be able to ever acquire one it will be buy search from blood sucking dealers looking too maximize profit.
    I put my name down on Cadillac site at end of Feb 2021, 9 months pass with not a clue as to what where or if I would be able to get one.
    Cadillac customer representative gave me a runaround stating that why wasn’t I in touch with my dealer about ordering.My dealer was completely clueless as to if they would even get an allocation. Complete frustration.
    Working with a new much bigger volume dealer but may be too little to late. By the way MSRP plus 5k

    I will not pay above MSRP. Sewell Cadillac of Dallas does not charge above MSRP. Recommend you contact them. Might not help, but could not hurt.

    I’ve had this car on order for the last year and a half, 2021, 2022 and now hoping for a 2023, even though they did away with my favorite color option for 2023. I was told to order without the carbon fiber and it should be accepted…so even for 2023, I placed the new order 4 months ago with what the dealer said “all in stock parts”. Just got a new call from the dealer, now they are saying the semi aniline leather could be the hold up. I wish there was more communication between Cadillac and the dealers, explaining what the holdup is. I’m seeing the Blackwing 4’s with the carbon fiber so how was that the hold up? So frustrating!!!

    I’ve had my blackwing on order since February 1921. I have gone from being told that I was going to receive 2022 model now being told it’s going to be 2023. I have been given no production date. I was originally told that the 2022s going to be the last internal combustion engine model Cadillac was going to make. Based on the inconsistent flow of information coming from Cadillac, it seems they are going to continue to make internal combustion engines through at least 2024. I have been given absolutely no additional information about which model here I’m going to receive, as well as any indication as to when the car is going to be built. I’m starting to feel more like I should cancel this order. I don’t know if the car I will ultimately receive will have the same value that the car I ordered was supposed to have.

    You need to find a completely different dealer. I ordered my CT5-V BW back in October 2021 and received it in June 2022. The 2022 builds were all finished by July 2022. People who did not receive a 2022 were supposedly told to re-submit their build orders again for a 2023 model . Some 23’s have already begun arriving. Carbon Fiber packages was the biggest delay. Do you even have a 6 letter build # from the dealer. If not, you do not have an order placed with Cadillac.

    I agree. For a successful outcome, you need to find a good dealer. Good luck to you!

    My CT-5 Blacking was built end of September(2023 Model). Received a delivery date from my dealer a few weeks later. Then the delivery date was canceled apparently due to quality control issue and it’s been sitting in a storage lot near the factory ever since, nearly Three months now. Last week emailed corporate to complain. They did get back with me fairly quick and said they are looking into it. But still no answers. Communication has been very poor.

    I ordered my black wing in May 2021. I did order it with carbon fiber and the number of other packages. I was originally told I would have the car before the end of the model year. It is now 20 months since ordering the car. My dealer moved the production year I was going to receive from a 22 To 23 and now to 24. I’m not sure if I’m ever gonna see this vehicle.

    I ordered my 2022 5BW in Oct of 2021. Arrived june 2022. Did not order carbon fiber packages. You need to deal with and order from a few dealerships. Each dealership gets an allotment relating to past sales history. My friend ordered a 2022 and never received it. They then ordered a 2023 and it is supposedly built and its been months waiting for delivery. If you are paying a mark up…..you are being ripped off.

    I ordered a ’22 5BW in January of 2022, but was told it would likely be a 2023. Then when the 23’s started building, I was told if you want Carbon Fiber you will NOT get a 2023. THEN I was told several weeks ago the 2023 model year was “built out” and I wouldn’t get it either. My local dealership has HORRIBLE allocation (Despite over a dozen deposits, only ONE delivered so far) Like others I have also looked to other dealers. Somebody here mentioned Sewell Cadillac in Dallas. Yes, they’re a good one, but the secret is out and their waiting list is LONG. Another dealer with a good reputation is Genesis Cadillac in Detroit. Their list is long as well, but both are getting good allocations, and should be able to satisfy most customers willing to wait. (Neither charges a markup either) Luckily, I’ve reached the top of one list and will get my allocation soon, but hopefully not TOO soon, I’m hoping to get a 2024 refresh.

    I placed my deposit in May of 21. I was told I was going to get a 22. Then it went to a 23. My dealer has told me that production is currently under constraint, and that I am at the top of the list when constraint opens up. I’ve never heard of constraint within production before. I’ve been buying cars for over 50 years. Like you, at this point, I would prefer just to get the 24. I picked up a 2019 C7 a few months back. I’m going to enjoy the spring and summer driving the Vette. I still really want to get my hands on that BW but it is getting more and more frustrating. What’s everyone’s thoughts about the new name, Blaqwing?

    -This car is sitting on the showroom floor and has CF1 and CF2 and is a pretty fully optioned 120th Anniversary.

    Go cadillacV-net.com and you will find a plethora of information about the Blackwings. If you have a 6 letter order# , you can give it to Rob the Administrator and your vehicle can be tracked during the build. If history repeats itself, the last year models will be done being built by July 2023. Otherwise you need to re-apply for an allotment for 2024. It is not automatically re-applied by the dealer for you. My friend thought and was told that his 2022 was on its way, when it was NOT. He had to re-apply for a 2023 and it cost him another $7000 grand for the same exact spec car. The 2023’s have been coming much better than the 2022’s, due to chips and carbon fiber. If you want carbon fiber you will have a long wait ! But, in the end, it might be worth it. Some people have deleted the CF just to get a car sooner.
