Cadillac wouldn't be Cadillac without its two-door models. But the XLR has been discontinued for over four years now, the Elmiraj concept may never see production and the future of the CTS Coupe is still up in the air. That leaves just the ELR, which may not be conventional enough for traditional Cadillac coupe buyers. Fortunately a new coupe is coming along to fill the void.

According to Edmunds, Cadillac will reveal the new ATS coupe just a couple of months from now at the Detroit Auto Show. Expected to mechanically mirror the existing ATS sedan, the new coupe will also more conventionally resemble its four-door counterpart than the CTS, whose coupe version was distinguished by a rakishly sloping roofline.

Expect the same choice of engines to carry over, with a 2.5-liter four serving as the base engine, and both a 2.0-liter turbo four and a 3.6-liter V6 offering more power for those looking for that extra bit of oomph. Following the Detroit reveal, sources anticipate the ATS coupe to go on sale next summer.

      Can't wait to see the ATS-V coupe, the M4, the C63, the RC-F, and the RS5 duke it out.

        I think the ATS-V coupe will probably be about $15,000 cheaper than those others. The RS5 is ridiculously priced buy maybe the others have raised their prices so much that they are in the same pricing stratosphere? I remember the RS4 was something like $80,000 when you could have an M3 for like $50,000. Just didn't make sense then, but maybe they are closer since they have dropped the price of the S4 by about $8,000 from the old models. (Can you believe BMW actually made them drop the price because of their 335 release at such a "discount" that Audi had to drop the price of the S4 by a LOT)

      The ATS sedan already looks pretty sharp. I only wonder how much it could get better!

        With two less doors, it will look even better, with a cleaner, sportier look.

        Pretty much. Unless you upgrade to a worthy drive-train, at which point the car no longer matches its price-point... and THAT RIGHT THERE is what makes a Cadillac a Cadillac.

        Do you even know what the Cimarron was? I don't think you do, or otherwise you would retract your statement because this car is in no way, shape, or form similar to a gussied up Chevy Cavalier, but thanks for playing.

      Hopefully the 2.5 remains sedan only. I get it for rental fleets and lease specials, but that kind of power seems wrong for the coupe.

        Seeing that Buick just made the 2.0 Turbo its base engine, Cadillac will most likely do the same. Makes sense, now that they have the 3.6 TT and is also expecting some variation if the LT1 in the stable too.

      What an odd thing to write. There are a whole lot of ways I'd describe Cadillac as being a "Cadillac", but having 2-door models certainly isn't one of them.

          Greg , And the now is pretty good for Cadillac, and the history behind the brand makes Cadillac even more interesting.

        Some of the most notable Cadillacs of all time were coupes. Does the Coupe Deville ring a bell? How about the Eldorado?

          The fact that Cadillac has such a history says something. Furthermore, some of us actually care about our automotive history. If you wanna choose to ignore everything but the present, Cadillac is still one of the best sport luxury brands out there, so your point is moot.

          Me get with the calendar? Why don't you tell that to the jokers who keep bringing up the Cimarron? I am with the times, and am aware that Cadillac is building some of the most exciting cars it has in decades. Maybe it's time you haters quit living in the 80s.

          That was over a decade ago, Chris. Get with the calendar.

      I appreciate Caddy have balls for the C-ATS coupe and doing it pretty well from the very beginning. I did price a regular C-ATS sedan and at $52K fully loaded I just had an issue with the bad paint job, and it wasnt just that model but all Cadillac models actually. And some interior models could be better but I'm hopeful that model will continue to improve and maybe in time I'll reconsider it, maybe the coupe might just be it.

      Hopefully it wont look like that cts coupe. Please make it it look like a proper coupe. Thank you.

        Sadly, proper coupes are somewhat of a lost art these days. The down votes seem to confirm this. I don't understand why the concept is so far over people's heads these days.

        Good point. Whatever pimp cane the CTS Coupe was beaten with... don't do it here with the ATS.

      Hopefully it doesn't have the ridiculous rump of the CTS coupe.

        Ugly? No, Lexuses and Acuras are ugly. Cadillacs are currently some of the best looking luxury cars out there, contrary to what some of you butt hurt import fanboys want to believe.
