Cadillac Muscles Up With Limited-Edition CTS-V Coupe

The “last chapter,” as all-new V-Series debuts next year.

by on May.12, 2014

The 2015 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe gives aficionados something drive until the maker introduces a V-Series line-up next year.

Cadillac is saying “out with the old” in a way that performance drivers might appreciate. The luxury maker is launching a limited-edition version of the CTS-V Coupe for 2015 that it calls the “last chapter” for the current two-door, and a placeholder for the all-new V-Series line-up it is promising to introduce next year.

The CTS Coupe itself is a holdover, a two-door version of the previous-generation luxury sedan that Cadillac recently updated. The maker has been providing mixed signals about whether it actually will have a new version of the CTS Coupe in the future. For now, it is focusing the spotlight on the smaller 2015 ATS Coupe it introduced at this year’s Detroit Auto Show.

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.
