Default False Namesake : CT4-V

Upon seeing the title : CT4-V Blackwing, I thought "Wow! They found home for that expensive engine!"

Wrong.

Its the same aspirated V6. Not a bad thing but grossly, grossly misleading.

Yeah, the problem is that Cadillac has so few fans that no one will care.... About the naming or the car itself, most likely.

If Porsche can sell SUVs by the boatloads and the M division can make turbocharged SUVs, then naming Cadillac naming the series "Blackwing" is not a big deal, IMHO (the engine is turbocharged, BTW).

The problem is that Cadillac needs to make cars that people want to own or lease.... And the mainstream version of the CT4 and CT5 are really uncompelling (at least, they were on the convention-center floor, when I sat in them), and, aside from the Escalade, their SUVs aren't cutting it, either (the XT5 is a joke).

Caddy is a hot mess.

I actually like the new sedan (whatever it's called) - and think it's pretty handsome. But - not Caddy handsome...more Chevy/Buick levels.

The XT4 is competent. The XT6 is beyond boring. It's outclassed in pretty much every metric, and way over priced.

The Escalade was their flagship - it was known as the bling machine and way in your face. The new one? Not so much, but the interior is undeniably nice.

The other Caddy products..whatever.

Escalade is the only damn thing Cadillac has going for it. Why isnt it a brand ? Escalade Sport? Escalade Super Sport? Escalade Eiffel Tower Edition?
