Cadillac is set to redefine the luxury sports sedan segment with the 2025 CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing models. Back by popular demand, the CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing set the bar high in their particular class of vehicles – and quite frankly, it won’t be easy to outdo the offerings from 2024. However, Hamburg and East Aurora drivers have high hopes. 

We’ll help you take a glimpse into the future and what’s in store for these two popular luxury sports vehicles for the upcoming 2025 model year.
