2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe – Click above for high-res image gallery

The North American International Auto Show is typically the big show for Detroit-based automakers and 2010 appears to be no different for General Motors. Chris Preuss, GM's vice president of communications, has hit Twitter confirming that each of the General's four brands will have at least one vehicle to display at the Detroit Auto Show next month. As expected, Cadillac will unveil the 2011 CTS-V coupe along with a concept version of its XTS sedan, a model slated to replace the aging DTS in the next year or two. GMC will unleash the Granite, which, according to earlier reports, will be based on the Delta platform and the forthcoming Chevrolet Orlando.

Chevrolet figures to have a somewhat quieter show, with its big reveal being the Aveo RS, which we hear is all-new and very little like the narrow and unattractive B-Segment hatch GM is selling now. Buick will be chasing the ghosts of Grand Nationals and T-Types past with a performance variant of the 2011 Regal that may share a lot of parts with the 325-horsepower Opel Insignia OPC. We can hardly wait for January 11.

      Exciting stuff!

      What is the Granite?
      I wish they would do a Volt SUV or Crossover.
      Love the platform but want the utility for skiing and stuff.

      I think whoever has a problem with pushrods can go and push his own rod...

      Seriously though, I would buy an LS3 CTC with a 6-speed yesterday if they made one :(

      The CTS Coupe looks like complete garbage.

        I may hate GM's management strategy and the fact that they've taken tax dollars, but I have to give Cadillac credit where it's due. This car looks nice, and from what I've read, is mechanically respectable. That being said, GM's management and UAW clowns can bite me.

      That CTS coupe looks like a G6 coupe with a CTS front end.

      Anybody as excited about the new Cadillacs as I am?

        • 5 Years Ago
        Me!

        I can't wait to see what the XTS looks like. I'm really hoping for a range-topping S8 / 7-series fighter.

      Does anyone actually go to Detroit anymore, though?
        • 5 Years Ago
        If you are in the movie business and you make disaster/armageddon movies, Detroit is perfect because you don't have to do anything.

        I drive through Detroit to get to Grosse Pointe...

        If the people running this state had half a brain, they would tear town the burnt out abandoned buildings in Detroit, build a proper city with proper buildings like NY and Chicago and take advantage of all the water surrounding the city and its proximity to Canada.

        People go, they just don't stay.

        I know detroit is run down (thank you free trade) but as far as automotive power goes it is still the most prevalent city in the world. You have to look past just car production to see that. engineering, design, testing, schools. everything has a base in detroit.

      Am I the only one that thinks the new CTS has slightly awkward proportions?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Its not your typical rounded butt me too coupe that would like look any number of other coupes on the market. Its going to take some getting used too, and seeing it in person to make final judgment. Still, it will be a polarizing design and some will still not like it, others will love it. I do, and that's fine with me that some just won't like it. Haters will hate.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Just go see it in person, then you will understand it. the cadillac's dont photo well but when you see them in person (cts) they look so well balanced and planted with there stance, truly impressive
        • 5 Years Ago
        Touche.. my friend has the current CTS and I agree that it's a beautiful car, I have just had reservations about this coupe.. mainly the C pillar, but I guess that's also partly because it does have rear seats
        • 5 Years Ago
        Don't get me wrong - I like it a lot. It just seems like there's an extraordinary amount of hype surrounding it and I really don't see why.

      All I got out of this post was GM's continuing the ages old badge-engineering routine.

      Does GM really need to offer the exact same SUV across two or more of its brands? Do we really need a Tahoe & a Yukon? An Equinox and a Terrain? A Cruze and a Granite?

        @tpfilm
        Does Nissan need a 370Z and a G37? Does Toyota need a Camry and an ES-series Lexus? Does Ford need a Taurus and a MKS?

        I wasn't aware that platform sharing constituted 'rebadging'. The Terrain and Equinox share similar proportions, but each have a completely unique look. The Yukon is up-level to the Tahoe. By doing this, the company is more profitable. Which, last time I checked, would indicate that the company is doing well, and the better GM does, the quicker it gets out from under the government.

      I want to see that XTS,I hope Lincoln shows the new MKX and the production C concept at detroit too.
      • 5 Years Ago
      ...when are we going to see the oft-discussed ATS? I'd much rather see the car BELOW the massive CTS, not bigger than it...
