The upcoming CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing cars will not be one-offs for Cadillac. The luxury brand has confirmed it plans to roll out additional V-Series and V-Series Blackwing vehicles in the future. Though don’t expect an Escalade-V Blackwing.
In a new interview with Cadillac Chief Engineer Tony Roma, GM Authority uncovers some of Cadillac’s future intentions with V-Series. Roma clearly confirmed more V-Series vehicles are coming.
“You’re going to see more of that in the future. We’re going to do more V-Series. It’s important to our brand and you’ll see it on other products,” Roma stated.
Roma went on to remind everyone that the Blackwing badge will be reserved only for the highest-performance cars Cadillac is capable of producing. While more Blackwing cars are underway, the brand will not churn out a Blackwing variant of every Cadillac vehicle. Roma specifically stated that an Escalade-V Blackwing isn’t in the cards, but did hint that an Escalade-V could be in the cards.
Rumors of an Escalade-V have surfaced numerous times over the years. Since the launch of the all-new 2021 Escalade such rumors have heated up with hints from GM officials. It’s still unclear if an Escalade-V has been fully approved, but if so expect it to be powered by GM’s supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 found in the CT5-V Blackwing. In the CT5 it generates 668 horsepower, which should be enough to command the V-Series badge on the big Escalade.
