Cadillac might develop CTS Coupe image

The North American based automaker Cadillac might develop a coupe version of the brand new 2014 CTS.

According to the company’s global marketing director, Jim Vurpillat, the Cadillac CTS Coupe has been highly successful and the “no. 1 selling luxury coupe in the industry”. This being said can only mean that the automaker is planning to develop a new generation of the CTS Coupe, which will be based on the 2014 CTS. The model will be a direct rival for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and for the BMW 6-Series Coupe, but, because it has grown in size, the carmaker believes that it’s now a more worthy opponent.

Additional details about the 2014 Cadillac CTS Coupe remain unknown for the moment, but as a quick reminder, the regular version of the 2014 CTS has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 New York Auto Show. The model has new distinctive headlights with LED strips, a trapped hood, a rakish windscreen, trapezoidal exhaust and 17- to 19-inch aluminum wheels. Power is being provided by a 272 BHP 2.0L turbo, by a 321 BHP 3.6L naturally aspirated and by a 420 BHP 3.6L turbo V6. The unit can be mated to a six-speed or an eight-speed automatic transmission. RWD is standard and AWD optional.
