2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe ready to hit the dealerships

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

The Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant has started production of the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe and has begun shipping these cars to US dealerships ahead of schedule.

Plant Manager Scott Whybrew said that the carmaker has "very experienced assemblers," who ensure that each vehicle meets the levels of quality and craftsmanship expected in a Cadillac.

He added that Cadillac wants its customers to feel as much pride in owning a Cadillac as the company does in building them.

The new CTS Coupe, which is priced from $38,990, joins the lineup that includes the CTS Sport Sedan and CTS Sport Wagon.

The "two-doored" model features a lower roof line, a shorter overall length, the same wheelbase, and wider track, giving the car a more aggressive stance and athletic profile. Mike Green, president of UAW Local 652, said that this product, which has been getting "rave reviews," gives consumers another choice.

He applauded the Lansing Grand River team members for "making the Coupe a reality." Powering the CTS Coupe is a 3.6 liter V6 engine that uses direct injection to produce 304 hp.

This powerplant, which comes as standard on the model, can distribute its power to the rear wheels or to all four wheels using a six speed automatic transmission or a six speed manual gearbox. Buyers may opt to power the CTS with a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 (the V-Series version of the car) that delivers 564 hp.
