    If you own a CT6-V, it may encourage you to learn that the Blackwing engine at the front of it cost GM an estimated $20,000. That's because the design program that led to its production is estimated to have cost GM $16 million and Cadillac only made about 800 of them. Why did Cadillac stop so...

    With the CT6 being displaced by the Hummer, Cadillac's twin-turbocharged Blackwing V8 has no home. And sadly, that's not about to change. Speaking to Road & Track, Cadillac President Steve Carlisle said that the overhead cam V8 won't be under any hoods any time soon. "[We have] no specific...

    A new report says that Cadillac's supercool twin-turbo Blackwing V8 is, well, doomed. As in it won't go into the company's next high-performance sedans. Or into the Escalade.

    Earlier this month we reported that Cadillac had filed a trademark for a new logo that would likely be applied to cars featuring the Blackwing V8. Now Cadillac is using the logo publicly at the LA Auto Show. Printed on a wall behind a Cadillac CT6-V, the logo appears above a paragraph or two...

    Despite being widely hailed as two of the best performance sedans on the market, Cadillac's ATS-V and CTS-V will go out of production this winter. Fortunately for us all, that doesn't mean that the V line is dying. The CT6 V-Sport is now being renamed the CT6-V and more V branded models will...

    Cadillac's first V8 since the Northstar is slated to come out soon and the company has been obsessed with making it as special and refined as possible. It's obsession means that only six people are deemed good enough to build one. Not only that, but every engine will be built by just one of...
