Cadillac ATS Coupe adds to ATS line-up, price starts at $38,990
Cadillac ATS Coupe is formally announced to go on sale by the end of this summer. The ATS Coupe is a derivative of award winning Cadillac ATS sedan with nip and tuck to make it a desirable luxury coupe. Price of ATS Coupe will start at $38,990 (Rs. 23 lakhs approx.), including destination charge of $995 (Rs. 59,000).
The 2015 ATS Coupe will retain the same wheelbase of 109.3 inches as the ATS sedan, but will have extra vehicle length, sit lower from ground and spread out with wider front & rear tracks on 18 inch wheels. Body kits including front fascia, front/rear fenders, roof and boot lid get their own designs, different from ATS sedan.
The Cadillac ATS Coupe will be available for sale in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations. Engine options include a 2.0L four cylinder turbocharged mill generating 272 horsepower (203 kW) and 295 lb-ft of torque (400 Nm); and a 3.6L six cylinder engine delivering 321 horsepower (239 kW) and 275 lb-ft of torque (373 Nm).
Features on-board the new ATS Coupe include built-in Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE connectivity, Bluetooth, text-to-voice, USB, SD card, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, 5.7 inch instrument control display, head-up display, and Bose surround sound with sound cancellation.
Speaking about the car, David Masch, ATS chief engineer says, “All of the surface development unique to the ATS Coupe was done with aerodynamics in mind. 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 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.”
