Even as GM aims to go all electric by 2035, the U.S. automaker is introducing new performance cars with good ol’ fashioned gas-guzzling engines.
The 2022 CT4-V Blacking and CT5-V Blackwing will arrive this summer to replace the ATS-V and CTS-V, respectively, and they will do so with updated versions of the same basic engines.
The larger mid-size CT5-V Blackwing will feature a tuned version of the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 from the CTS-V to make 668 hp and 659 lb-ft of torque, up from 640 hp and 630 lb-ft. Cadillac says intake airflow improved by 46%, and additional power came from a revised exhaust system, a new throttle body and supercharger, and a calibration update. Each engine is hand built by one tech at the Bowling Green, Kentucky, factory that builds the Corvette, and each comes with a signed engine plate.
Cadillac quotes a 3.7-second 0-60 mph time when paired
