    Next level V series to be called Blackwing.

    As long as they're true to the heritage, i dont care what they call them. Blackwing feels exclusive enough i think.
    Bring back Pontiac

    SMFH...So the CT6V with the Blackwing isn't a Blackwing but a V....but the CT4 Blackwing without the Blackwing is going to be a Blackwing...then you have the CT5 Blackwing, will it have the same Blackwing as the Blackwing non Blackwing CT6?

    I guess calling it a Blackwing is better than where that name got its origin and calling the best most hopped up versions of these Cadillacs a Merlette.

    How long will it take them to dump Blackwing and switch over to a new hotness that they won't stick to?

    Good luck GM

    Ok...what really cheeses my grits about this is that they completely skull screwed the V name by slapping it on what should've been a V Sport to only then create another series above it but w/ quite possibly the dumbest name ever. Man, if I had stock in GM i'd be selling right now, run by a bunch of leather fanny pack wearing morons.

    Per usual the negative nellies are out in force 1st. So now they actually call it a name and not some alphabet soup nonsense and its still not good enough. Be honest to some of you no matter what Cadillac does it will never be good enough.

    Either you’ve recreated Dr Jekyll’s formula, or you don’t read the previous posts before you reply to them?

    I’m going to go with the latter, as from reading your various posts you don’t strike me as the scientific type.

    You already discussed this yesterday in the thread about the hotter CT4-V over in ‘Global Cadillac News’ (post # 42) and now you’re post makes it seem like it is the first time you’ve seen this news.

    Try to keep up please. Or, in the unlikely event that I’m wrong about your scientific prowess, please lay off the serum.��

    Okay, now I ‘shined it up and made it all and pretty’!��

    Usually I'd reply to your snide post by telling you what you can do with said post after you shined it up made it all nice and pretty and especially after turned that sumab- sideways. But I'm in a playful mood so I'll ignore your insult.

    So to reply to your lame side diss, yes I read the article...and I stand by my previous remarks that blackwing is a stupid name.

    Do you really believe that the moves that GM are making are the company's best efforts?

    If this is the best that GM could do with Cadillac then I would be fine with what is being sold,but you know and I know it's not.

    The mishandling of Buick and Cadillac,GMC still not having a real direction except for being "Professional Grade",The mis-handling of the Camaro and now the possibility of it going away again,the rise fall and rise again of the CT-6,the V-Series no longer being V-Series,but being V-Sport Series and Blackwing taking the place of what V-Series was or is....etc,etc....

    If Nissan ran itself into the ground doing this I'd cheer it on,but GM?...Nope...I want to say something,but I know my voice falls on deaf ears and the bad moves continue to be made.

    I went from owning nothing,but GM cars to now owning 1. I don't think I'll ever buy a new GM vehicle again and not because I don't want to,but because GM makes nothing I want.

    It was supposed to be facetious, as opposed to snide, sarcastic or sardonic, but I’ll compromise and take acerbic as it seems like a nice half way house between witty and pithy. ��

    Re: Next level V series to be called Blackwing.

    I think, like some other here think, that throwing away the name equity in something............. that you worked so hard to get.............. is dumb.

    A V meant something. It has been around a while, and has gained traction and respect. Now, because of that, it is to be exploited and changed into something it was not. Kind of like what they did with the SS name many moons ago.

    Imagine if BMW decided that the M was not the pinnacle of their performance model. Imagine, if you will, that they decided that the super duper M was to be called the M3 Fred. Then what does that make previous M cars?

    The question now becomes, will there be an entire series of "wings." A V Blackwing, redwing, brownwing, orangewing, purplewing?? Or, is the new embellishments to the V series just the flavor of the month until the next change. Maybe a V-Blackwing 400 / 600 / 800? Soon, it just becomes "oh, you ONLY have a V, huh?"

    Re: Next level V series to be called Blackwing.

    This news gets a big thumbs up afaiac. ‘BLACKWING’ The name is only about 15 months old, but it already sounds like it has decades of heritage. Coming up with new and great automotive names, is getting harder by the day. There’s probably other manufacturers kicking themselves that they didn’t think of it first.

    FORD has THUNDERBIRD, (another great name) so for them or Lincoln to come up with BLACKWING wouldn’t have been much of a stretch. Quite a few car companies use winged badges, so to have those badges in black for their ultimate performance vehicles, would totally work.

    CADILLAC CT5-V BLACKWING. Yep that looks perfect!
