|Cadillac ATS coupe|
Last modified: 01/28/14
A coupe version of the ATS, the compact sedan that debuted in mid-2012, was unveiled at the 2014 Detroit auto show and will go on sale in summer 2014 as a 2015 model.
The coupe will ride on the same, 109.3-inch wheelbase as the sedan. But both its front and rear tracks are about 1 inch wider, with shorter overhangs and fenders that wrap snuggly around the standard 18-inch wheels (the sedan comes standard with 17-inch wheels).
There are two powertrain options, identical to those of the sedan: a base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 272 hp and 295 pounds-feet of torque; and an optional 3.6-liter V-6 rated at 321 hp and 275 pounds-feet of torque. Cadillac says the coupe won't offer the 2.5-liter base engine that comes standard on the sedan.
Cadillac will position the coupe against the BMW 4 series and the Mercedes C Class coupe, part of its broader plan to compete more directly with those luxury stalwarts.
A convertible and wagon are among the other body styles that Cadillac is considering to broaden the reach of the ATS.
