Cadillac announced today that the pricing for its all new 2011 CTS Coupe will start at $38,990, including destination charge.The new car which will go on sale in early August in the U.S. will be available in rear-wheel and all-wheel drive and will come as standard with the 3.6-liter Direct Injection V6 engine capable to deliver 304 hp.
The CTS-V Coupe is powered by the same supercharged 6.2L V8 that sits in the CTS-V sedan. The engine puts out 556-hp and a maximum torque of 551 lb-ft. Mated to either a Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual with a dual-disc clutch or a Hydra-Matic 6L90 6-speed automatic with paddle-shift control, the CTS-V Coupe can sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds. Braking power comes from Brembo brakes, 6-piston calipers in the front and 4-piston calipers in the rear.
The model also features Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control as standard. The system uses shocks controlled by magneto-rheological technology, rather than mechanical valves, to enhance response and assisting in maintaining luxury car driving conditions.
Base CTS Coupes receive a Bose audio system, 18-inch wheels, sport-tuned suspension, keyless entry/ignition, rear park assist, and an auxiliary audio input as standard equipment. The CTS Coupe with the Performance Collection -- which starts at $43,430 -- adds adaptive HID Xenon headlamps, 10-way power leather seats, surround sound, a USB audio input and a 40-gigabyte hard drive as part of the sound system. CTS Coupes equipped with the Premium Collection start at $47,835, and add ambient interior lighting, a rear view camera, heated and cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel, navigation, and a sunroof.
2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe To Start At $38,990, On Sale In Early-August
DETROIT – Cadillac announced today that pricing for the all-new 2011 CTS Coupe will begin at $38,990 including destination charge. The CTS Coupe goes on sale in early August in the United States.
CTS Coupe will become the centerpiece of Cadillac, offering technology and performance in the dynamic form of a luxury sports coupe. Available in rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, CTS Coupe comes standard with a 3.6L Direct Injection V6 engine that delivers 304 horsepower. This engine is available with a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
The ultimate expression of Cadillac's new Coupe, the high-performance V-Series edition with 556 horsepower, Brembo brakes and Magnetic Ride Control also goes on sale later this summer at $62,990 including destination charge.
"CTS Coupe is a compelling new alternative for luxury and performance-minded drivers," said Don Butler, vice president of Cadillac marketing. "The addition of a Coupe, especially one this dramatic, provides an important entryway for new consumers to experience Cadillac Art and Science."
The Coupe expands the award-winning CTS line-up, which already includes the CTS Sport Sedan and CTS Sport Wagon. CTS has been named to the Car and Driver 10 Best list for three straight years.
CTS Coupe has the same wheelbase as the sedan but is lower in height, wider in track width and shorter in overall length. The windshield is laid at a faster angle, creating a sleek, athletic profile.
The doors of the CTS Coupe are opened via touch-pads, eliminating traditional handles and adding to the car's sculpted look. The interior features hand-sewn accents that cover the door, center storage console and instrument panel trim.
CTS Coupe is available in two suspension-tuning levels – Performance with 18-inch wheels and all-season tires and Summer Tire Performance with 19-inch wheels and summer tires. CTS Coupe has four-wheel disc performance brakes, ZF Servotronic® 2 power rack-and-pinion steering, a limited-slip differential and StabiliTrak, an advanced electronic chassis control system.
CTS Coupe is available with a 40GB hard drive providing music storage and pause-and-replay live radio, navigation system with glide-up screen, rear camera system, Bose 5.1 Cabin Surround audio and adaptive forward lighting. OnStar is standard and includes Turn-by-Turn Navigation.
"CTS Coupe is designed to bring new energy and allure to the luxury coupe category," Butler said. "In addition to the emotional appeal of its design, CTS Coupe delivers advanced technology and world-class performance."
