    Cadillac has officially confirmed that the hotter versions of the CT4-V and CT5-V will be called Blackwing. That's despite (reportedly) not being powered by the Blackwing V8. That's because, according to Cadillac, the name is more about excellence than it is about a particular object. "The...

    Cadillac reportedly has no plans to add hybrid or plug-in hybrid capabilities for the CT4 or CT5. That's according to unnamed sources who spoke to Cadillac Society. The sources also claim that the sedans will not go electric-only, either. That last piece of information, if true, gives some...
