Hello everyone,

New here and just put down a deposit on a CT5-V Blackwing, hoping my order will eventually be accepted. I am apparently 3rd or 4th in line for an allocation at this dealer, who is optimistic I will be able to get my car in 5-6 months. I called around and this would have been my placement at most GTA dealers, with the exception being one where I would have been 7th loool.

I was told each Canadian dealer got a single MY2022 allocation initially and now are hoping for more allocations but are unsure how many they'll get for this year or next.

Does anyone have any insight on what the status is on Canadain BW orders? Has anyone ordered in the past few months and actually received an allocation?

Thank you,
NewD

I have asked a number of dealers and have inquired with Cadillac Canada and Cadillac US. Dealers don't seem to know much. I am #7 at one dealership and #2 at another. The one I am #2 at told me they are getting 1, so unless there is a 2023 Blackwing, I am probably SOL. Cadillac Canada just keeps telling me to talk to my dealer. Cadillac US says they have no info at this time as to whether there will be a 2023 MY.

What dealership? I'd be surprised if you can get a car in 5-6 months at 3-4 in line, that would mean you'd need an allocation in the next 1-2 months.

I was number 3 at my dealer in London, Ontario back in June and they received one of the first 250 so I am now number 2 and have it in writing.

At this point nobody can tell you the allocations or wait times. All you can gauge is prior allocation history of the CTS-V to give an indication of how many Blackwings they get a year but even thats two years outdated and with all these supply issues it gets messy.

Either way I'd be very very surprised if your dealer can secure another 3-4 allocations to get to your turn in line and deliver a car in 5-6 months, in Canada anyway.

Are you with Finch? Let me know if you decide you don't want one any more. I'd be happy to take your allocation :D

Hah, thankfully I don't think the cars going to be cancelled anytime soon so you will get one at 3-4 in line, just probably not a 2022.

Hope you're right. I was late to the game and only decided recently that I want one.

I was actually excited to get the new M3 and when this came out it took me two weeks to get over my brand snobbery and accept that this is a much more special car, so I arrived late to the game as well. Turns out I'm third in line. I'm not even dreaming of a '22, just hoping I get a '23 or eeeven '24 but it would suck to completely miss the boat.

Have you heard confirmation of a 2023 model? I can't find any info on this.

Also, not all dealers are getting a Blackwing. I tried a smaller dealership and they are not getting any. I think allocation is based on how many previous V-models they sold previously

No confirmation of 2023 model but I don't see why they wouldn't offer one, having already made the R&D/capital investment and probably not wanting to piss off hundreds of potential buyers who are willing to spend this much money on a car.

I've been told by 4 different dealers that every Canadian dealership got one 2022 allocation. I'm not sure whther that means everyone who got one, got just one, and others got none. I spec'd mine without the CF packages, which I hope will speed things along.

One dealer told me they didn't know whether previous V sales factored into the allocation decisions but did say that dealers are more likely to be given allocations if they have a signed sales contract with deposit as that is a guaranteed sale. Idk what to believe...

Dealerships who received an allocation are ones who have sold previous V vehicles. My local dealer sells a limit number of Caddys, they did not receive one.

If they've received a decent number of V series CT5s (example 5) a year then will probably get an allocation. Basically any large dealer received an allocation, smaller ones did not, at least for the initial 250.

No confirmation but I'd be very surprised if 2022 was the only model year for these cars, it doesn't make sense. Most likely the Blackwings will continue for the rest of the CT5/4 generation into 2024 at the worst and potentially 2025-26.

If you are 3-4 in line you will get a car, assuming your dealer has received at least one allocation already, it will just be a 2023-24 model year.

Hope you guys are right. I read somewhere only about 3000 Blackwings being made (both the CT4 and 5 combined), so I thought this might be a very limited production last hurrah for Cadillac.
