    2023 website build tools are online

    Sure but C8 buyers will happily pay more, aggressive, increases, its that much of a hot ticket item and GM could get away with it. The 5BW is much less production but a 10% increase in the base price is pretty nuts, either GM screwed up with the original MSRP or the car its made out of highly...

    2023 website build tools are online

    Up here in the Great White North the 5BW increased 10k before any options. My build went up 12k from '22 to '23 however carbon seats are on constraint so I "saved" about 5k and my '23 that is scheduled for production is "only" 7k more then my '22 build. Crazy how much the base price of the 5BW...

    Blackwing Production End Date?

    Its not actually the same, the Camaro uses the original Alpha chassis, the Blackwings use Alpha chassis 2. Sure they are similar but they are different to the point that if the Camaro is cancelled after 2024, the Blackwing could still live on for a few more years. (I also hope its not...

    Blackwing Production End Date?

    Based on prior model year runs of the CTS and ATS I don't see why 4BW and 5BW wouldn't run until at least 2025. Beyond that is anyone's guess though. However I wouldn't get any hopes up of getting reworked powertrains at some point (2.65L blower on the 5BW as an example) as these come with...

    Test drive?

    I drove one on track before I ordered but it cost me $1500 Canadian Peso's! I also got to drive a C8 and a ZL1 1LE, they even gave me dinner! Kidding aside, it will be difficult to get a test drive as you'd need to find a dealer with a used one who will be willing to let you take it for a spin...

    CT5-V Finally! I got the phone call!

    I hope I can get it before snow but I don't have high hopes for the goat rodeo. My dealer is 4 hours away on a good day so if it does land in snow I'll be looking for alternative ways to get it home.

    Blackwing Constraints Tracker

    Important for a manual? No Awesome stuff to have regardless? Yes 700 bucks for a rear view camera mirror, the Surround vision recorder, hands free release alone is a great value. The difference between the recorder and the standard surround vision is that, like the name implies, you can...

    CT5-V Got One!

    The second best colour for '22! (I'm partial to emerald frost as #1). You don't need to wait for 1500 miles, thats only before you track the car. At 750 its ready to be flogged, go nuts with it. I've always behaved with my vehicles even the one's I sold shortly after purchasing new, I like to...

    2023 Radiant Red

    Its odd because I've seen the Escalade V in low lighting and it seems completely fine but the pictures of the Camaro in low lighting make me go "oh no". I'm sure it will be fine.

    2023 Radiant Red

    I'm not liking the colour on cloudy days based on pictures but on a bright day it certainly looks very nice. The Escalade V looks great in Radiant red and the one or two pictures in the sun I've seen of a Camaro looks good as well. Hopefully I picked correctly for my 5BW

    Blackwing Constraints Tracker

    Yes, I received allocation 2 days ago and the only constraint items for me was carbon fiber. I ordered the parking package without issue.

    Blackwing Constraints Tracker

    Yes, unfortunately the natural interior is only available with the CF seatbacks, so no CF seats means no natural interior which sucks.

    CT5-V Finally! I got the phone call!

    Canadian Pricing is available, the build and price isn't. Base price is 10k more so its 97.7k+$2.3k destination so 100k before any options. Like the US the only options that saw increases were carbon fiber options but those aren't available. Every other option retained the same price in '22...

    Blackwing Order Tracking - 2022 Model Year

    My order finally got accepted but lucky for Rob its a Canadian order so he won't have to track it!

    CT5-V Finally! I got the phone call!

    I'm in Kingston, Ontario but I went with Finch in London as there wasn't a chance my local dealer could get one. If they got one '22 and your next on the list you will definitely get a '23.

    CT5-V Finally! I got the phone call!

    The day is finally here, after waiting 15 months my dealer received their 3rd CT5-V Blackwing allocation. This was the first '23 for my dealer up here in Canada. Per the usual, no carbon fiber so my dream build has been squashed (RIP tan interior dreams) but it is what it is. I went with the...

    Blackwing Constraints Tracker

    My lucky day! Got the phone call! Per usual, all carbon fiber still on constraint so I won't be getting my tan interior sadly but at least I have a car coming!

    Buy used or gamble with order?-Ct5

    Considering the hell it is trying to get one up here in Canada id get used if the price was similar, unfortunately thats not the case. I'd love to get a used one for a similar price to new without waiting months or years.

    MT Buyers Only: If MT was not available, would you still buy a Blackwing?

    In Canada it seems like we will only get 546 cars over 3 years, so 180 a year for the entire country, which is very low. I don't know what the US numbers are but I've heard the new Type R is going to be at 40% production capacity compared to the last gen. I believe the US received something like...
