The 2022 Cadillac V-Series will Feature Magnesium Wheels

Cadillac V-Series | Bangor, ME

Still primarily known for outfitting vehicles with the most luxurious appointments possible, Cadillac has recently made waves in the automotive world by branching out into previously uncharted territory with its race-ready V-series Blackwing vehicles. In the automaker’s most recent game-changing move, Cadillac just announced that the new 2022 CT4-V and CT5-V will come with optional magnesium wheels.

Professional auto racers have been using magnesium wheels for well over half a century due to their extremely useful combined high-strength, low-weight properties. Per Cadillac, the material was chosen for the next-gen V-series vehicles because “magnesium wheels help reduce mass at the center, allowing for more flexibility with the spoke design and better shock/vibration absorbance.”

Though the wheels are not expected to look much different than the current wheel options available for V-series Blackwing vehicles, those in-the-know can look for a small “Mg” emblem stamped on the wheel as a tell. While the material is far less popular today than it was earlier in the 20th century, true General Motors enthusiasts will know that this is not GM’s first foray into the world of magnesium wheels; the automaker actually offered similar wheels for the fifth generation of the Corvette until 2001.

The official unveiling of the 2022 Cadillac CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing is not expected until spring, so stay tuned to Quirk Cadillac of Bangor’s blog for updates.

What’s New for the Cadillac CT4 and CT5?

2021 Cadillac CT4 & CT5 | Bangor, ME

For the 2021 model year, the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 are getting several substantial updates. Though both cars entered a brand-new generation for 2020, it’s clear Cadillac is not resting on its laurels. Here’s what to expect.

New style.

Both the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 are getting a few visual tweaks. Say goodbye to the Red Obsession Tintcoat and Royal Spice Metallic exterior color options, and hello to Infrared Tintcoat and Rift Metallic. On V-Series models, the cars also get a Modena leather steering wheel and your choice of blue or red Brembo® V-Performance front brakes.

Wireless tech.

For the first time, the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 are now offered with an available high-definition 12-inch digital instrument cluster. The infotainment has also been updated to feature wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto. New options include SiriusXM® with 360L and a nifty rotary control knob that makes operating the infotainment system even more intuitive.

Improved safety.

Cadillac has always been at the forefront of safety, and the base CT4 model now gets a lot of safety features as standard equipment for the first time, including Front Pedestrian Braking and the Safety Alert Seat. Both the CT4 and CT5 now also come standard with Buckle to Drive, a new system intended to work in tandem with Teen Driver.

Cadillac even says that Super Cruise will be added to the options list in early 2021. Learn more about the 2021 Cadillac CT4 and CT5 at Quirk Chevrolet Cadillac of Bangor.

Here’s Why Cadillac Won’t Electrify the CT4 or CT5

Cadillac CT4 and CT5

While it may seem like many of your favorite vehicles are ditching their combustion engines and going electric, you can still count on the popular Cadillac CT4 and CT5 sedans to retain their gas-powered dynamos. Currently, there are no plans to offer hybrid or plug-in hybrid variants, either. Instead, the luxury automaker wants to focus on giving CT4 and CT5 drivers what they really want — more powerful models like the Blackwing-powered CT4-V and CT5-V.

However, if you’re in the market for a Cadillac EV or hybrid, the prestigious automaker offers plenty of options. A new flagship electric sedan, known as the Celestiq, debuted in the spring of 2020. The automaker also revealed a teaser for the Lyriq, an upcoming all-electric SUV.

There’s a keen logic in the automaker’s strategy — by offering both EVs and combustion engine vehicles, Cadillac provides a diverse lineup for all sorts of drivers. Whether you’re a fan of the smooth, clean, and refined ride that an EV offers, or you prefer the dynamic, energized growls of a combustion engine, you can’t go wrong by choosing a Cadillac.

If you’d like to get behind the wheel of one of these spirited sedans, contact us at Quirk Cadillac of Bangor to learn more about driving home in your very own Cadillac CT4 or CT5 sedan.
