    Cadillac to Retain Manual Transmissions for V-Series

    As we just covered yesterday, the V-Series application to the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 models will don intermediary performance models, similar to the former V-Sport line. The Blackwing nomenclature will designate top-performing models, redefining what the letter V really means to a Cadillac.

    During the reveal of the 2020 CT4-V and CT5-V sedans, General Motors President Mark Reuss said, “Cadillac will make manuals in V-Series.” With four V-Series models across the two sedans, which are the likely candidates to receive three pedals?

    The CT4-V and CT5-V specifications have already been provided by Cadillac and neither included a manual transmission. The CT4-V, with 320 horsepower and 369 ft-lbs coming from its 2.7-liter four-cylinder turbo engine, will only offer the 10-speed 10L60 Hydra-Matic transmission. Likewise, the CT5-V will use the 10-speed to route the 355 hp and 400 ft-lbs from its 3.0L twin-turbo V6.

    Maybe something that even the Cadillac critics on GMI can finally applaud.
    Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.

    Ehhhh really kind of vague at this point. I think it would be better to have the 2.7T get the manuals then you can get cross use in the trucks as well. It would be amazing to see one the CT5V-BW.

    Totally! And on the back of the car it would say: CT5-V BmW, with a lower case ‘m’ between B and W to indicate manual.

    This is right inline with what was not said during the CT5 launch. Hopefully all 4 Vs will have the option at some point.
    "More powerful, quicker and outright faster than a comparable BMW, Cadillac’s newest model is the best reason to skip the letter M and head all the way down the alphabet to V."
    Current Rides: 12’ Infiniti M37S
    17’ Cadillac CT6 3.6
    16’ Cadillac ELR

    Hey, if you search online, if you are are lucky, you might be able to pick up a sense of humor for a really good price.

    The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. "

    If it's funny, it's funny. There are three shots at people with different opinions in this thread alone. I'm sure all those with blind faith want this forum to be 100% yes men but that's ****ing boring.
