Reports suggested right, we will receive the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe. Since the CTS coupe managed to attract a lot of attention and many buyers we do expect that similar happens with the great looking ATS Coupe version.
Even the CTS Coupe was responsible for about 25 percent of total sales in its lineup it will not be continued. Instead of this coupe model we will be getting ATS which is much more compact and smaller compared to the CTS. Just to add, CTS will be offered in only a sedan version.
Specs Of 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe
We are used to get 2.5 liter inline four cylinder engine as a base but this time there will be no option to get this one. As a base version we are getting quite great 2.0 liter turbocharged inline four engine that is capable of delivering 272 hp but more improvements are made in the torque department. Max torque of 295 lb-ft or 400 NM is now available at 3000 rpm and the much better torque curve significantly improves acceleration and drive-ability of this vehicle. Another interesting detail is that about 90 percent of torque is available from 2100 to 5400 rpm.
Only replacement for this great engine is the 3.6 liter V6 unit that offers 321 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. It does offer more power and similar torque but we think that there are many reasons why to stay with the 2.0 liter turbo. Both units are offered with direct injection improving performances and fuel economy. Automatic transmission is only choice for the V6 unit while the 2.0 turbo comes with choice of the same auto or the manual six speed.
Compared to a sedan version all segments received upgrades, same goes for the interior. Infotainment system received few changes and tweaks, it now comes with 4G LTE wireless hotspot feature and text to voice input. Since this is a sportier version of ATS it will come with sound system that will be able to better deliver the sound of the engine but according to the car maker this system will be used just to further push sounds that engine already produces.
On the outside we have wider vehicle than sedan and this will help out the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe to even further improve already good handling we were getting from sedan. Weight distribution is almost perfect bringing 51/49 when this is combined with magnetic rude control, FE3 sport suspension and mechanical limited slip differential we are getting one quite impressive list of features and great vehicle for track and twisty roads.
Even the exterior is changed it is not so easy to notice many changes when we are comparing this vehicle with its lineup sibling sedan model. We have to notice that designers played safe here and decided not to experiment much. This is still great looking vehicle and we think that many will like it more than it was the case with the sedan.
2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe Price
When it comes to the price as one of the most important factors when buying new vehicle, we still do not have official info about the sticker price of the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe. At this point we can only guess the number but we do expect it to be slightly higher than it was the case with the sedan model. If this happens than we will most likely see it priced at about $37.000 to $38.000.
