Article by Christian Andrei, on May 16, 2014

GM announced that the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe will carry a price tag of $38,990, including a $995 destination charge. Set to go on sale at the end of this summer, the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe will be available with a choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, while the power will come from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or with a 3.6-liter six-cylinder.

The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine generates 272 hp (203 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. The bigger 3.6-liter V6 engine delivers 321 hp (239 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.

Both engines are offered with the Hydra-Matic 6L45 six-speed automatic transmission with tap-shift control. The ATS Coupe is also available with a six-speed manual transmission but only when equipped with the 2.0-liter Turbo engine.

The 2.0-liter Turbo engine has en estimated fuel economy of 21 mpg city/31 mph highway, while the 3.6-liter V6 offers 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway. When using the 2.0-liter Turbo engine the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.6 seconds.

Cadillac’s new ATS Coupe uses the same 109.3-inch wheelbase as the sedan, but comes with its own bodywork, longer vehicle length, lower height and wide front and rear tracks. Cadillac offers the new ATS Coupe as standard with the Bose premium audio system with Active Noise Cancelation technology.

As an option, there is a 12-speaker surround sound upgrade available on Standard and Luxury collections. In addition, a navigation system is available on Luxury and Performance collections, while Premium Collection gets it as standard.

Other interior features include the OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity with voice recognition, USB, auxiliary and memory card ports, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, reconfigurable 5.7-inch, three-window instrument panel cluster display and a full-color reconfigurable head-up display.

Low, Long, Wide Coupe Enhances Cadillac ATS Line

For the 2015 ATS Coupe, Cadillac engineers and designers made a number of changes from the award-winning ATS Sedan to deliver the performance and styling traits luxury coupe buyers expect. When the ATS Coupe goes on sale at the end of this summer, it will start at $38,990, including a $995 destination charge.

To create a more personal expression of the brand’s compact luxury car, the 2015 ATS Coupe rides on the same 109.3-inch wheelbase as the sedan, but features its own bodywork, longer vehicle length, lower height and wider front/rear tracks.

The roof, doors, rear fenders and trunk lid are unique to the Coupe, along with a specific front fascia and front fenders to accommodate the wider track. 18-inch wheels are standard on the Coupe.

“All of the surface development unique to the ATS Coupe was done with aerodynamics in mind,” said David Masch, ATS chief engineer. “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 Coupe has an aggressive stance, with wider front/rear tracks and a lower roofline than the sedan. At 60.3 inches front and 61.7 inches rear, the two-door has a 0.8-inch wider track. Overall vehicle height is 1.1 inches lower than the Sedan. The wider stance and lower roofline provide the proportions coupe customers want.

“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.”

The 2015 ATS Coupe is also 0.8 inches longer than the sedan; although it rides on an identical wheelbase. The extra overall length helps to further enhance the ATS Coupe’s dynamic appearance, resulting in a swept-back look to the front and rear end appearances.

The Cadillac ATS Coupe is intended to be a more personal addition to the award-winning ATS product line. Designed to be lighter, more agile and more engaging than its competitors, it extends Cadillac’s product-driven growth and the brand’s tradition of dynamic luxury Coupes. The 2015 ATS Coupe goes on sale this summer, offering drivers the choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and the power from a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.6L six-cylinder.
