Dec. 17, 2020—Cadillac is reviving the manual transmission in the upcoming 2022 CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing. 

According to a press release, these two models with be the first to function with 3D-printed parts, including two HVAC ducts and an electrical harness bracket. By 3D printing, the Cadillac team was able to reduce costs and waste while developing the manual transmission. 

“A lot of work went into making the manual possible in both vehicles. It’s something we know V-Series buyers want and it’s something we knew we had to have, so we used innovative processes to make it happen,” said Mirza Grebovic, Cadillac performance variant manager.
