  • The 2025 Cadillac CT5-V will sport a new front fascia with stacked LED headlamps, quad trapezoid exhaust tips, and a new 33-inch display.

  • The 2025 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing also updates the front fascia and headlamps and adds the 33-inch media display, but the Blackwing also gets a new carbon exterior package and updates its track data logger.

  • Cadillac says the CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwings will be built at the GM Lansing Grand River factory and be available this summer.

If you were curious about the future of the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, well there’s good news, at least for 2025. Cadillac is updating both the CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing sedans for the 2025 model year.


Both of these potent Cadillacs are getting new, large media screens and refreshed styling. The CT5-V and its Blackwing counterpart also will add a new performance app that relays boost pressure, horsepower, and other information to the driver.

Powering the CT5-V is the same 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that currently powers the CT5-V, sending 360 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque through a 10-speed automatic transmission.

While that’s plenty of power for a fun sedan, the star of the CT5-V’s remains the Blackwing. Like its less potent variant, the powertrain also carries over.

However, that should be great news for those who like V8s: The supercharged 6.2-liter V8 is standard issue in the Blackwing and still sends 668 hp and 659 lb-ft of torque through a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. From there, power heads to the rear wheels or the all-wheel-drive system.

Both the CT5-V and Blackwing variant get a revised front fascia, with new stacked LED headlamps and a new grille. The updates are admittedly subtle but help bring the CT5-V into the fold within the Cadillac lineup.

Cadillac also updates the interior for both models as they join the screen wars with a new 33-inch display to handles media and essential driving information. This screen is also home to the new GM performance app that displays information like horsepower, torque, boost, and g-force levels, as well as essential engine sensor data.

The Blackwing gets an updated, optional, Performance Data Recorder with a lap analyzer tool, which also gives you driving tips, a summary of the car’s current configuration, and live track data like lap times and time deltas.

These updated CT5-V models will be built at the GM Lansing Grand River factory, and are scheduled to hit the streets this summer. Cadillac hasn’t disclosed pricing, but the relatively light update to the cars will probably be met with a slight uptick in price.

So don’t be surprised if the ’25 CT5-V starts around the current $53,490 entry point.
