20th Anniversary of V-Series: The 2024 Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwings
To commemorate two decades since the launch of Cadillac’s pioneering V-Series, starting with the iconic 2004 CTS-V, the brand proudly presents the 2024 CT4-V Blackwing and 2024 CT5-V Blackwing. These high-performance sedans, available for order now, come adorned with special 20th-anniversary accents.
As a tribute to the milestone, both models feature a subtle “Anniversary” script on their grilles and rocker panels. Additionally, an exclusive start-up animation graces their digital instrument clusters, underscoring the significance of this occasion.
The 2024 iterations of the CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing introduce a few notable updates. Among these are the inclusion of a “Blackwing” script beneath their V-Series badges, and a selection of new color options, including Velocity Red, Cyber Yellow Metallic, Coastal Blue Metallic, and Black Diamond Tricoat.
The CT5-V Blackwing offers an optional General Motors’ Super Cruise automated driver-assist feature, available exclusively when paired with the car’s automatic transmission.
Under the hood, no changes have been made to the mechanical components. The CT4-V Blackwing continues to impress with its twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6 engine, delivering an impressive peak power of 472 hp. Power is seamlessly transferred to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission or a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The CT5-V Blackwing takes performance to the next level with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine that roars with an impressive 668 hp. Similar to its counterpart, this powerhouse channels its might solely to the rear wheels through either a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.
While the manual transmission offers an exhilarating driving experience, the automatic transmissions provide swifter acceleration. The CT4-V Blackwing achieves a 0-60 mph sprint in 3.9 seconds with the automatic and 4.1 seconds with the manual. The CT5-V Blackwing, on the other hand, achieves a blistering 3.4 seconds with the automatic and 3.6 seconds with the manual.
