I wasn't sure what thread to put this in (since moderators haven't yet created a CT4 or CT5 "V" forum), but Autoweek just reported the following, from direct contacts at Cadillac:
  • "Blackwing" is confirmed as the name for the new, upmarket, as-yet unveiled high-performance V models (even though they won't be using the bespoke new "Blackwing V8")
  • Cadillac is actively looking for applications for the "Blackwing V8" (even though the "Blackwing" CT4-V and CT5-V models can't and won't be using it)
  • Both CT4-V and CT5-V "Blackwing" models WILL be coming with proper manual transmissions (hallelujah)
  • Both CT4-V and CT5-V "Blackwing" models have been outperforming previous lap times of the ATS-V and CTS-V
  • Due to COVID-19, not only is availability delayed until 2021, but they won't even be officially unveiled until 2021, and will be 2022 models
    • here's hoping the COVID-19 economy and market fallout doesn't ultimately sink these models...probably not though, given the buzz and likely profit margins for these models
