High-performance models of the brand Cadillac are waiting for major changes.June 4, 2019
At the moment, productive performances of cars of the American automaker Cadillac are produced under the sub-brand V-Series. Foreign publications write that the most powerful of them can get a new name Blackwing.
At the end of last week, the guys from the company Cadillac dropped something like a “bomb” (information of course), presenting their new compact sedan CT4. “Bombardment” was that the model debuted not as a basic configuration, but as a high-performance model CT4-V. Unfortunately, the main news from the representatives of the brand was not how much horsepower was under the hood, but about how much was not enough.
Taking into account that the previous similar model ATS-V had a capacity of 464 horsepower, the new sports sedan can boast “only” 320 “horses” – a huge decrease at least. However, the V-Series can no longer be a great addition to the new Cadillac line. If you are confused, everything is in order – I, too, began to not remember something about what was going on here at all.
The new report of the publication Muscle Cars And Trucks states that the V-series cars will take the place of the previous V-Sport line, which was the “golden mean” between the standard models of the brand and the truly powerful “monsters”.
In this case, the new high-performance Blackwing family would be reserved just for these powerful “monsters.”
There is strong evidence to support this thought. The report mentions the words of GM concern President Mark Reuss, who, using the example of the new CT4-V, tells us that Cadillac has two versions of the V-series. V-Sport is gone, and with Cadillac announcing the CT4-V and CT5-V (which also debuted at the same event last week) as full-featured V-series cars, there are plenty of opportunities to create another TOP sub-brand. We know that Cadillac has a powerful Blackwing Twin Turbo V8 engine that already performs its duties in the now-canceled CT6-V.
