2010 Cadillac CTS Coupe officially revealed, CTS-V coupe also confirmed | Rpmgo.com

While plenty of Cadillac fans were quite happy with the CTS, some of them believed that true performance can only come from a coupe model, and weren’t swayed by the quite powerful CTS-V, which showed its strengths on multiple occasions.

Now, for such fans, Cadillac has revealed the CTS coupe model, a very bold and aggressive statement, which will take the fight to European modes like the BMW 3 Series coupe or Audi A5. The standard version will be powered by the direct-injection 3.6-liter V6 engines, which develops 304 HP and 273 lb-ft of torque. Paired with the standard Aisin six-speed manual gearbox, expect 17 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway, if you opt for the Hydra-Matic 6L50 six-speed ‘box, expect 17/26. You can also choose between rear and all-wheel drive, as well as between the performance package, which includes 18-inch wheels, or the summer tire performance package, which has 19-inch ones wrapped in summer tires (duh!) and larger brakes.

In terms of design though, the new CTS coupe is quite a looker, and strays quite far from the lines of the sedan model, managing to pull off some sharp angles with the windshield and rear window, as well as hiding the B pillar and an ingenious set of door handles.

Expect the new model in 2010, alongside a high performance V Series version, which will offer some interesting thrills. Until then, enjoy the gallery below, and leave a comment with your thoughts on this new model.
