Contrary to early information, the 550-horsepower V8 turbo engine, known as the Blackwing, will not be equipped with any new Cadillac.

Fans of the American brand met the new “charged” models CT4-V and CT5-V indifferently, and it is clear why. Cars with a capacity of 320 and 350 hp accordingly, they can not compete even with their predecessors – ATS-V and CTS-V, not to mention German sports sedans.

It was rumored that Cadillac was preparing for the CT5-V an even more dynamic variation with the Blackwing powertrain from the top CT6-V sedan, while now it became known that these plans were not destined to come true.

 According to Motor Trend, relying on its source at GM, a powerful 550-horsepower 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine will remain only on the CT6-V. The corporation’s plan to reduce costs does not include the use of Blackwing neither on the upcoming Escalade SUVs, nor on the CT5-V sedan, nor on any other brand models. The new Escalade, for sure, will acquire one of the current V8 at 5.3 liters or 6.2 liters.
