MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL 

Structurally rigid, yet compliant in an instant. The 2023 V-Series family features the latest generation of Magnetic Ride Control, the world’s fastest reacting suspension technology. It reads the road up to 1000 times per second and seamlessly adjusts damping for confidence-inspiring ride and handling.

BREMBO® PERFORMANCE BRAKES 

Quiet on the road and proven on the track. Brembo performance front brakes give CT5-V confident pedal feel and secure stopping power. On CT5-V Blackwing, front and rear Brembo high-performance brakes as well as enhanced cooling improve brake performance and fade resistance.

 

In addition, the CT5-V Blackwing is the first Cadillac vehicle to offer carbon-ceramic brakes with cross-drilled rotors, resulting in a brake system that is both visually appealing and high-performing. Optimally designed wheel sizes on CT5-V Blackwing result in the largest factory-installed brakes ever on a Cadillac.

REAR-WHEEL DRIVE

The foundation for high-performance handling, RWD architecture enables ideal front to rear weight distribution and reduces mass, so carving corners is a breeze. For added traction in everyday conditions, CT5-V offers available all-wheel drive.

TRANSMISSIONS 

Right gear, right time, guaranteed. The 10-speed automatic transmission, standard on CT5-V and available on CT5-V Blackwing, delivers lightning-fast shifts.

 

CT5-V Blackwing boasts a standard 6-speed manual transmission with active rev matching and no-lift shifting, finished with a hand-polished, 3D-printed medallion atop the gear shifter to honor the true art of driving.

TIRES 

Standard summer-only, low-profile tires offer race car aesthetics and encourage spirited driving at every turn. CT5-V Blackwing boasts Michelin Pilot® Sport 4S summer-only, low-profile tires. For athleticism on all occasions, CT5-V offers available all-season low-profile, run-flat tires.

EXTERIOR

In the CT5 V-Series, form meets function then hits overdrive. This is science applied by the hands of a sculptor. This is design that drives you.

ARTFUL AERODYNAMICS

Signature V-Series aesthetics serve a powerful purpose. The mesh grille design directs air to the main radiators, cooler and airflow ducts. The front splitter and rear spoiler combine to reduce lift and generate traction. CT5-V Blackwing is aero-obsessed, incorporating 11 auxiliary coolers to help feed its powerhouse engine.

CARBON FIBRE EXTERIOR PACKAGES

To elevate ultimate performance design even further, CT5-V Blackwing offers two available Carbon Fibre packages. More than exterior adornments, aerodynamic touches significantly reduce lift and dramatically improve high-speed handling and control, leaving competition in the dust.

LIGHTWEIGHT WHEELS 

Engineered to endure, lightweight aluminum alloy wheels on CT5-V reduce unsprung mass for increased performance and come in a variety of designs and finishes for statement-making stopping power. CT5-V Blackwing features forged aluminum alloy wheels with excellent strength-to-weight ratio, plus laser-etched design details that prove V-Series Blackwing thrills in motion and at rest.
