2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe To Start At $38,990, On Sale In Early-August

2010-05-20

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."

CTS Coupe will be offered in a range of packages:

* Standard ($38,990 RWD, $40,890 AWD): Six-speed automatic with tap up/down shifting, 18-inch wheels, performance suspension, rear park assist, Bose audio, MP3 input, EZ Key, remote start, power driver and front passenger seats.
* Performance Collection ($43,430 RWD, $45,330 AWD): HID Xenon headlamps, adaptive forward lighting, 10-way power leather seats, Bose 5.1 Surround Sound, USB integration, 40GB hard drive.
* Premium Collection ($47,835 RWD, $49,735 AWD): Interior ambient lighting, rear-view camera, heated/vented front seats, heated steering wheel, wood trim, Bose 5.1 Surround Sound with navigation, sunroof.
* V-Series ($62,990): 6.2L Supercharged V8, paddle shift controls, Brembo brakes, Magnetic Ride Control, 19-inch wheels with performance tires.

      I recently spent some time in an 09 CTS sedan. It was pretty nicely equipped but not the top of the line model, more toward the lower middle range. The back leg room was a bit tight and I am just average height, foot room there seemed tight also. The front 2 seats were more than fine, the car was a kind of pale gold color with a very rich looking "contrasting stitched" leather appearance of chocolate and beige colors. With more than adequate power for real world driving and many amenities, this was a car I could live with. Now if Cadillac only had a dealer within a 62,000 square mile area. I'm not kidding...draw a line from So. Lake Tahoe to Sacramento to San Fran. through Vallejo (which has a dealer), and there is not currently a Cadillac dealer till somewhere north in Portland Oregon.

        The internet says there is one in Redding and one in Chico.

        Is this not sufficient for you?

      i just wish cadillac would replace the dts with a rear-drive car instead of that front-drive xts. when i think of cadillac, i think of when they had rear drivers, with exeptions like the eldorado which was never rear-drive and the 87-93 allante.when the seville was redesigned for 1980 and switched to front drive, it was kind of sad... then came the seville's replacement for 2005, the sts...rear or all-wheel drive. ive had both front and rear drive and i will always prefer rear... it is easier to pull out of a skid with a rear drive than front... now, only if caddy would make a cts convertible! id put it against the lexus is and infiniti g37, both have beautiful convertibles!

      Don't waste your money UNLESS they warranty for 10 years/100,000 miles. Owned CTS brought nothing but grief.
      • 4 Years Ago
      wow, perfect pricing in terms of the market and performance (especially the -v), pity the rear and back portion are so lethargically penned. i doubt owners will care, esp with the blown v8 in the -v

        @Zama

        But the TT is financially a failure in the States. Sure, I believe it's underrated, but they still aren't selling.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yup, really, that's what you do when you engineer a car that competes with audi, bmw, infiniti, you price it that way. It's the same reason people scoff at the TT-S's price, even though it's quicker than a Z4 at 10k more.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That's what I thought immediately. It's priced above the M3 but below the GT-R (2 high-performance coupes that you can daily), which based off what the performance level of this car should be, that's about spot on. This car doesn't strike any chords with me in the same way the other 2 do, but I still think this will be a great car.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I've not seen it in person, maybe the rear looks less bulbous and scrunched in person. In photos it's way too tall in relation to how wide it is and the exhaust pipes are about the worst decision i've ever seen in terms of placement and size on any coupe on the market. I do love what GM did with that metal bit above the exhaust on the lower valance, looks nice, maybe even function in terms of radiating heat way from the lower valance.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I agree with your price statement, but I disagree with your comment about the styling. I think the sedan looks great, the coupe looks even greaterer.
        • 4 Years Ago
        also, i'm sure ls7 will chime in, i'm beginning to agree with him, the normal CTS nose looks a lot better on the 5 and 2 door models
        • 4 Years Ago
        Really? Lets look at the $38,990 base price vs:

        Audi A5: $36,000
        BMW 328 coupe: $37,200 (granted, this probably doesn't include a steering wheel)
        Infinity G37: $33,250

        I'm just saying... if the reg. CTS gets the 3.2 liter V6 thats in the current sedan, which is powerful but not class leading at 220hp... its solid, but not really enough to sway current BMW, Infinity, Audi customers to switch brands.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Coupe comes standard with the 3.6 DI V6. It's in the press release.
      • 4 Years Ago
      They pretty much have to move the CTS upmarket or else it will compete with the ATS. CTS could really use a refresh (talking about the sedan), although the V models are a deal and a half at that price. CTS-V gives better performance than an M5 for around $30k less.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It could use a refresh in some ways (like the instrument cluster). But it's too late in the model cycle I think. Plus some of the stuff it needs (like a comprehensive tech pack that includes lane drift warning, parking cameras, rain-sensitive wipers, etc.) aren't the easy stuff to add.
      • 4 Years Ago
      We already know what the sedan its based on costs, so this is in line. What, did you expect taking two doors off of it would drop the car ten grand or something?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Sorry im not impressed, the car looks like the coupe of 5 yrs ago. Just a larger engine with speed you will never use! Just a box on weels... I'll take a lexus, bmw, mercades or infinity over this ugly car!
      • 4 Years Ago
      unless the performance of the cts-v coupe is significantly better, i'd definitely take the cts-v sedan
      • 4 Years Ago
      $9,000 to get a sunroof. Nice.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Still don't like the rear.
