A few weeks ago, Cadillac confirmed that the 2022 CT4-V Blackwing and 2022 CT5-V Blackwing will be making their official debut via a livestream on February 1. The event is slated to begin at 7:00 PM, EST, and will be available for viewing on the brand’s homepage, Twitter page, or their media site. As it turns out however, that isn’t the only exciting news coming on February 1 for the Caddy-connoisseurs among us. The automaker has just announced that they will begin accepting reservations for the first batch of the Cadillac Blackwing sedans immediately following the event.
According to Cadillac, CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing customers will have a chance to reserve one of the first examples of each car starting at 7:30 PM, EST on February 1. Reservations will take place via the company’s Reserve Yours page, and will carry a $1,000 price tag. A bit more cash than what other automakers have been asking for as of late, but Cadillac maintains that the CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing are truly special cars.
Customers who are able to reserve one of the first 250 units of each model will receive a serialized plate located on the optional high-performance steering wheel. This plate carries five digits from the VIN, which help to identify the model, the transmission choice, and its build number.
Anyone who is unable to reserve one of the first 500 Cadillac Blackwing sedans will automatically be placed on a waitlist, should any of the reservation holders back out. Once these early cars are spoken for, orders will be able to be placed with dealers across the country. That said, Cadillac won’t be responsible for stopping dealer markups.
The Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing models promise to be the most capable sport sedans in brand history. In order to drive home the track-ready nature of these vehicles, GM will be previewing them ahead of the debut at the 24 hours of Daytona on January 30th. Furthermore, every Cadillac Blackwing purchase includes a two-day experience at Cadillac’s V-Series Academy at the Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club in Pahrump, Nevada.
There isn’t much longer to wait now before we learn everything about Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing. Cadillac has remained rather quiet this far, but not totally silent. We know these cars retain their predecessors engines, and we know that they will be available with options like carbon-bucket seats and lightweight magnesium wheels. Details related to performance and pricing have remained guarded at this time, but we do know the cars will be available in late-summer of 2021. Be sure to check back to MC&T as the debut event approaches for more details.
