Cadillac has released pricing details on its new-for-2014 ATS Coupe. The new model, which will be available with buyer's choice of a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6 (the ATS Sedan's base 2.5 won't be making the trip) can be had with optional all-wheel-drive in place of the standard rear-wheel setup, while customers can also snag a six-speed manual or six-speed auto.

Prices start at $37,995, which represents a $2,900 premium over the 2014 ATS Sedan (pricing on the 2015 four-door isn't available yet) with the same 2.0-liter engine. Still, the ATS Coupe starts at just over $2,500 less than a base BMW 428i, which is also less powerful and offers less standard equipment. The Caddy is also less costly than the Mercedes-Benz C250 Coupe, although only by about $200. It's even cheaper than the Audi A5, which starts at $38,105, but that model includes all-wheel drive as standard. It should be noted that these prices are without their respective destination charges (*$995 for the Caddy, $925 each for the BMW and the Mercedes and $895 for the Audi).

Unfortunately, Cadillac hasn't released any additional pricing information beyond what we have here, so we can't tell you how much things like all-wheel drive, an automatic transmission or the 321-horsepower V6 will cost. That makes it difficult to figure out just how reasonable the ATS Coupe will be relative to its challengers, but so far, the value equation looks to be in the car's favor. When those full details roll in, though, you know where to look. Scroll down for the official press release from Cadillac.

Low, Long, Wide Coupe Enhances Cadillac ATS Line
Pricing starts at $38,990, including destination charge

DETROIT – For the 2015 ATS Coupe, Cadillac engineers and designers made a number of changes from the award-winning ATS Sedan to deliver the performance and styling traits luxury coupe buyers expect. When the ATS Coupe goes on sale at the end of this summer, it will start at $38,990, including a $995 destination charge.

To create a more personal expression of the brand's compact luxury car, the 2015 ATS Coupe rides on the same 109.3-inch wheelbase as the sedan, but features its own bodywork, longer vehicle length, lower height and wider front/rear tracks.

The roof, doors, rear fenders and trunk lid are unique to the Coupe, along with a specific front fascia and front fenders to accommodate the wider track. 18-inch wheels are standard on the Coupe.

"All of the surface development unique to the ATS Coupe was done with aerodynamics in mind," said David Masch, ATS chief engineer. "We are able to achieve lift and downforce requirements to insure, at top speed, we retain handling without having to add a rear spoiler."

The Coupe has an aggressive stance, with wider front/rear tracks and a lower roofline than the sedan. At 60.3 inches front and 61.7 inches rear, the two-door has a 0.8-inch wider track. Overall vehicle height is 1.1 inches lower than the Sedan. The wider stance and lower roofline provide the proportions coupe customers want.

"The wider track also helps improve steering precision and direct response," said Cadillac Executive Chief Engineer David Leone. "The lower roof contributes to a lower center of gravity height, which also reduces roll and improves steering response."

The 2015 ATS Coupe is also 0.8 inches longer than the sedan; although it rides on an identical wheelbase. The extra overall length helps to further enhance the ATS Coupe's dynamic appearance, resulting in a swept-back look to the front and rear end appearances.

The Cadillac ATS Coupe is intended to be a more personal addition to the award-winning ATS product line. Designed to be lighter, more agile and more engaging than its competitors, it extends Cadillac's product-driven growth and the brand's tradition of dynamic luxury Coupes. The 2015 ATS Coupe goes on sale this summer, offering drivers the choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and the power from a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.6L six-cylinder.

      Reading through the comments, it looks like I'm in the minority. I really like the looks. Still can't figure out why the ATS sedan doesn't sell better.

        I saw it at the NAIAS and was a little let down. Then I saw one highway testing on a road trip and it looked much better on the highway than on a platform. Not quite as sexy as an A5, but equal to a 4 series, and better than the last c class coupe IMO.

      The ATS seems to be priced right, and I would happily opt for the 2.0L turbo 4.

      I prefer coupes over sedans everytime. So the Caddy coupe suits me just fine. Give me the MRC package 2.0 engine, and the six speed manual,and the white diamond paint plus some 20" aftermarket wheels, and I would be happy camper.

      While the pricing is apparently class-competitive, I don't see why it shouldn't cost the same as the sedan.

      Saw 2 of these cars last weekend on I-69 West between Lansing and Grand Rapids, just like the ones pictured. 1Blue and 1Red. They have a Very Nice Road Presence.

      Does it come with a recall coupon book? Free oil change with each recall!

      Did anyone else read "2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe recalled"?

        No. No one else read that. You can quit trolling every single GM article now.

      $38 grand for a compact car. No thanks. And yes I couldn't afford any car at that price but still that seems like a rip off to me.

        That's cheap for a small luxury 2 door. Don't look at the price for a 4 series or E Class couple, you'll have a heart attack.

        I'm sorry - I just don't see how size equates to value. Your average Lotus is much smaller, does that mean it's not worth it either?

      Destination charge. $995 from Detroit, $925 from Germany. Sure, that makes sense.

        I get what you are saying, and it is pretty funny. That said, the destination charge makes sense** from the standpoint of the point of origin in the country. The stated sticker price of a Merc includes the import duties, currency conversion, and shipping. The destination charge in this case is "covering" the transport of the car from the port to your local dealer. The destination charge for a domestic car is "covering" the same thing: Getting the car from the "port" (in this case the factory) to your local dealer. ** makes sense in a strictly apples to apples comparison. Destination charges are actually not really all that logical anymore. For example, if you lived right next door to the factory and wanted to just swing by and pick up your car, you would still have to pay the destination charge. I can't remember when or the exact circumstances, but the destination charge is now a regulated charge (apparently there were all sorts of abuses of the fee early on).

          Destination charges are archaic and should be removed. You charge the consumer for taking ownership of a vehicle ALREADY delivered to a dealer. When I go to the mall, the purchase price of an item includes the cost of logistics. Put it in the damn price of the car and be done with it.
