Instead of the 4.2-liter Blackwing twin-turbo V8 V8 engine, the American novelty will receive a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. The presentation of the high-performance Cadillac CT5-V is scheduled for the end of this year.

Many were disappointed when Cadillac introduced the CT5-V high-performance sedan at the end of May last year. They were disappointed because under its hood was a 3.0-liter V6 engine with two turbines, which could give out only 355 horsepower (542 Nm). The fact is that earlier, everyone hoped that under the hood of the new items would be a 6.2-liter V8, which was equipped with the old CTS-V. This engine could produce 640 hp. power and 854 Nm of torque.

 Just a couple of days after the CT5-V was officially unveiled, Cadillac made a rather unexpected announcement about plans for a hotter version.

 Initially, it was believed that a 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 Blackwing engine would be used, but now it turns out that the flagship version of the CT5 sedan will receive a 6.2-liter supercharged V8.

What influenced the decision of engineers of the American brand to change the motor? The fact is that the powerful Blackwing engine simply does not fit into the engine compartment of a “charged” sedan due to its design with two upper cams, which makes the engine wider and higher than the 6.2-liter unit.

 At the moment, it is unclear what power this engine will give out in the new CT5-V. According to rumors, we are talking about more than 600 hp, at least in the CTS-V, the engine produced 640 hp

 At the moment, the name of the car also remains unknown. The official presentation of the novelty is scheduled for the end of this year, then we will see a hotter version of the CT4-V sedan, under the hood of which there will be a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine.
