The 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe is the latest model to be added
to the CTS lineup which all began with the CTS Sedan. The Coupe joins
the CTS Sport Sedan, the 556-horsepower CTS-V and new CTS Sport
Wagon as the foundation of Cadillac's lineup. A high-performance
V-Series edition of the Coupe will also be released in 2010.
The CTS Coupe is available in either RWD or
Closely based on the styling of the Cadillac
CTS Coupe Concept from 2008, the production CTS Coupe has
all the same lines and features. In fact it's remarkable how
close the two cars are in their design. They're so close in
fact that the most noticeable difference is the ever-so-slightly
larger wing mirrors of the production car.
"CTS Coupe is the new focal point of Cadillac, expressing
both our design and technical capabilities," said Bryan
Nesbitt, Cadillac general manager. "It is intended to
appeal to a new generation of car enthusiasts."
The CTS Coupe shares very little with the sedan version. The
only elements used on both cars are the headlights, front fenders,
grille and instrument panel. The coupe has the same wheelbase
as the CTS sedan, but an overall height that is approximately
two inches (51 mm) lower and an overall length that is two inches
(51 mm) shorter.
The CTS Coupe is will initially be offered with just one engine
option, a 3.6 litre V6 with VVT
(Variable Valve Timing). This unit produces 304 horsepower @
6,400 rpm, and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) of torque
@ 5,200 rpm. There are two transmission choices; a six speed
manual, or a six-speed automatic. Buyers also have a choice
between RWD or AWD
Two suspension-tuning levels are available: a Performance Package
with 18-inch wheels and all-season tires (available in both
RWD and AWD,) and the Summer Tire Performance Package, with
19-inch tires and wheels and a higher level of road holding
capability. StabiliTrak, the advanced electronic chassis control
system, is standard.
The interior of the CTS Coupe features hand-sewn accents covering
the door, center storage console and instrument panel trim.
14-Way adjustable Recaro sport seats, previously exclusively offered on Cadillacs
V-Series model, will be offered on all CTS Coupe models as an
