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.
2015 ATS Coupe operates on the same 109.3” (2,775 mm) wheelbase as the sedan, but it has its own body structure. The roof, doors, rear fenders, and boot lid are specific to the Coupe, as well as an exclusive front fascia and fenders with tracks that are wider than the sedan. It is also the first production vehicle to bear the revised Cadillac crest.
The Coupe also has a powerful posture, with front and rear tracks that are wider than the sedan, augmented by shorter overhangs and sheet metal wrapped tightly around the tyres. Standard 18” wheels are specific to the Coupe.
Vibrant lighting components are a signature Cadillac feature, and the ATS Coupe classic advances with available light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, headlights with Adaptive Forward Lighting. Base vehicles have projector-beam headlights, while high-intensity-discharge headlights and front upright LEDs come on all but the standard versions. Illuminated outer door handles on the Performance and Premium versions provide technologically modern style and functionality to the distinct Coupe. Every model features LED taillights and rear-centre stop lights.
The ATS Coupe also has capless fueling.
In the interior, the vehicle cabin’s driver-focus comes through from the Coupe, with handcrafted upholstered interior arrangements, decorative embroidery and genuine materials, such as wood leather, aluminium, and carbon fibre, meant to improve the emotional link to the drive experience.
There are many interior colour themes to choose from, each with specific accent trim materials, that range from light, open, and warm to dark and serious, as well as from boldly practical to sporty.
