We could give you many reasons why the V8 is one of the most sought-after engines available in a Cadillac, but the powerful engine note is plenty of reason enough. Cadillac engineers have spent decades refining the sound, power, and reliability of the Cadillac V8 engine. A truly memorable experience rewards their efforts.
So what Cadillac 2022 Models have a V8?
The 2022 Cadillac Escalade
Luxury is at its most refined in the 2022 Cadillac Escalade. A 10-speed gearbox harnessing 420 HP from the naturally aspirated V8 engine gives the 2022 Cadillac Escalade powertrain a unique feeling of power and control. Of course, if you don't want the gas-guzzling V8, you could go with the turbocharged inline-6 diesel motor, but that isn't why you are reading this article. Instead, a 620 HP, 6.2-liter supercharged V8 powered Cadillac Escalade V is expected to debut soon. So if you want even more power, you might want to pre-register for that version of the 2022 Cadillac Escalade.
The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing
The 2022 Cadillac Blackwing is sure to be one of the most desirable vehicles of the year, and for very good reason.
For the last hurrah of Gas-powered Cadillac V Models, they wanted to go out with a roar, and they delivered. The 2022 Cadillac Blackwing is the new CT5-V performance sedan, and it features a jaw-dropping 668-HP supercharged 6.2-liter V8. It's even available with a manual transmission. This Cadillac Blackwing has many structural enhancements, and the engineers have done extensive aerodynamic work to reduce drag and push the CT5 to breathtaking speeds of 200+ mph.
The Blackwing models will likely be the last gasoline-powered models in the Cadillac V-series lineup as Cadillac pivots to electric vehicles. That's why Cadillac has pulled out all the stops to make the most capable V model ever, and it comes with a manual transmission. You read that correctly; the 668-HP supercharged 6.2-liter V8 comes standard with a Tremec TR6060 6 speed gearbox. The Blackwing name stands for the pinnacle of Cadillac performance.
Cadillac promises a 3.7 second zero to 60 when you go with the optional quick-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission.
