Cadillac’s burgeoning family of CTS-branded vehicles, the original four-door sedan, the high-performance CTS-V sedan, and the slick CTS sport wagon, now includes a radically edgy coupe.
It’s been a long wait. Caddy’s last true coupe, the Eldorado, went out of production in 2002.
Is it different from the CTS sedan? Yes, and in more than a few key places and dimensions.
The 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe is virtually identical to the concept vehicle shown at the Detroit auto show in January 2008. The 2-door’s wheelbase is the same as the sedan’s, but the roofline is two inches lower, the body is two inches shorter, and the rear track has been widened by two inches compared to the existing sedan, to plant those big tires. The windshield rake angle is much steeper than the sedan’s, at 62.3 degrees, and the rear window is nearly flat when viewed from the side.
