  • Caddy Escala, Yet ME Motor Mentioned Too

    Here is a background article that talks all about the Cadilllac Escala, yet ends up discussing the 4.2L, 32V, DOHC, TT, Blackwing motor as a possible motor for an upcoming mid engine Corvette.

    Originally posted by GM Authority
    The Cadillac Escala Previewed The Blackwing Twin Turbo V8The Cadillac Escala Concept debuted at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and ushered in a new era of design for General Motors’ luxury brand, but unlike many other concepts, the Escala also previewed the future of Cadillac powertrains.

    GM said the Escala was powered by a dual-overhead camshaft 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 500 hp – which we now know as the Blackwing V8 that will appear in the 2019 Cadillac CT6-V. Unfortunately, the CT6-V will be a single model year vehicle, with the entire CT6 lineup set to go out of production after this year.

    And while the Escala appeared to be a preview of the CT6-V, we’re left wondering what other Cadillacs the Blackwing V8 will appear in. After all, the Escala was the embodiment of what’s to come from Cadillac, so the the 4.2-liter engine isn’t going anywhere after the CT6’s departure. It’s possible that a less powerful version could feature in the next-generation Cadillac Escalade. We wouldn’t be surprised to see it in a possible Cadillac CT5-V performance variant either, which is Cadillac’s forthcoming medium-sized sedan.


    The Blackwing engine may serve in another rumored vehicle: the rumored mid-engine Cadillac. A leaked photo of a Cadillac key fob for what appeared to be a mid-engine vehicle surfaced in November. While not concrete evidence this vehicle is in the works, this leak could have been a sign that Cadillac will eventually utilize the forthcoming GM mid-engine platform after Chevy. If this does happen, we’d expect it to have a version of the Blackwing engine sitting midship.

    Cadillac has needed another exclusive engine in its lineup for a long while, so its great to see it get one in the way of the Blackwing. The first Blackwing-powered vehicle will be a rare item, but let’s hope this engine appears more frequently in Cadillac products going forward.

    The batwing or rather blackwing escala looks cool. Hope it doest take a dump in the marketplace..

    i dont even see the relevance of cadillac as a division any more now that sedans are dying off...

    just out cadillac put of its misery already...and I used to love cadillac...when jdn publically stated he was raising prices to create exclusivity i was finished with the brand...

    pay more for the same **** but youll feel better about yourself...was the tipping point of stupidity and downward spiral for the brand...

    the second gen cts was awesome...the third gen was a rip off and consumers left the brand in droves..

    maybe the escala can lead the brand...?

    good luck.

That engine needs to be an option for Caddy. It would be awesome in their XT4 instead of the same boring 2.0 engine that everyone seems to have.
      I also agree JBsC6 that 2nd Gen Cts-V was awesome and reasonably priced. They almost doubled the price of the 3rd gen and only a 84HP increase. Gee I wonder why that didn't go over well.

          A treat to look at them a second time Jeff. I know are getting ready to cover CES real soon. Have fun. We sure are looking forward to your pictures and later your articles from there.

            That Blackwing is gonna find some place to go and the C8 is a pretty logical choice. Lotsa bucks probably went into its development and now that its ready, the car it was made for (CT6V) is being discontinued after one year of production.

            If the Blackwing can find its way to a Cadillac CT5V, I would need to take a close look at it if it can be driven all seasons. I think the CT5V would be smaller than my XTSvsport as well as the soon to be discontinued CT6.

              Id imagine the ct5 will as you suggested will be smaller and closer in size to the excellent selling cts second generation..

              i believe cadillac is in trouble for all the sedans it was preparing to beat the german sports sedan companies.

              the one thing cadillac didnt do was make its platforms capable of recieving a new top hat to become cuv s...

              also after the first srx which was rear wheel drive and awd did not sell......cadillac made sure all its future cuvs were front drive based so they could undercut the germans with fwd only versions and lease them out for less than the german equivalents...

              that plan backfired as cadillac has all these awesome sedan platforms that they cant seem to modify to create cuv s which are selling big time...

              supposedly cadillac is to get a new pridict every six months for the next few years...

              it ll be interesting to see how many are sedans and how many are cuvs...

              the blackwing tt motor is excellent ..

              the development cost must have been staggering...

              i still think cadillac coughed up a lot of the c8 development budget as well as a good portion of the bowling green paint process costs.

                OK. This is the deal, I hope. The delay, if it is in fact a "delay", in presentation of the C 8 ME, is for a little time to fit all of the newly available BlackWing into the ME scheme. As the/a base engine or option.
