2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Will Debut in Detroit – update


Cadillac just unveiled the 2011 CTS Coupe today, which is similar to the CTS-V Coupe.  It will arrive in showrooms by spring of 2010.  GM also states that the Cadillac CTS Coupe’s design will be exactly the same as the concept car that was introduced at the 2008 Detroit North American International Auto Show.  In addition, a high-performance V-Series edition of the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe will also be released in 2010, so buckle up for this fast ride.  

The Cadillac CTS Coupe is a 2+2 sport sedan equipped with the latest gadgetry, such as a rear-view camera system an a performance-oriented suspension system that is adjustable to the rear-wheel or all-wheel driving condition.  In the interior, two 14-way adjustable Recaro sport seats will be offered on all CTS Coupe models as an option, integrated iPod/MP3 hook-up, 40GB hard drive with the ability to stor music and pause/play live radio, navigation system, Bluetooth connection, standard keyless acess and smart remote start, and a Bose 5.1 audio system.

On the performance side of the CTS Coupe, it is equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine and six-speed manual transmission on the standard model.  The 3.6L is rated at 304 horsepower and gives an estimated fuel economy of 27 mgp on the highway, which is really good for this big V6.  This high mpg is due to the new direct injection technology that is used to deliver precise fuel amount and timing in the combustion chambers.

The 2011 CTS-V Coupe will be at the 2010 Detroit Autoshow since GM vice chairman Bob Lutz announced it back in July.  In addition, the CTS-V Coupe will get 556-horsepower supercharged V8 and extra features.  At a glance the CTS Coupe looks similar to the 2009 Cadillac Converj Concept.  Could it be the One?
