Blackwing Engine

Hard to believe that GM would invest as much money as it must cost to develop a new production engine, particularly one with the high output numbers that this one does and only build it for the one model year installation in the CT6-V.

Anyone have any plausible rumors as to where that engine will go down the road?

That engine in a lighter car than the CT-6 at a price point of no higher than $70K would be a huge seller. Don

I'm almost certain it's going to find it's way into the Escalade.

I hope models other than the Escalade get it, we need sedans, the market is flooded with SUVs. Don

The market is demanding SUV's right now. That is what's hot. The sedan market is dying. Don't get me wrong, I love big Sedans more than SUVs, but we're a dying breed.
