    Low, Long, Wide Coupe Enhances Cadillac ATS Line

    Pricing starts at $38,990, including destination charge

    DETROIT – 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.

    Interesting that the coupe is more expensive than the 4 door sedan, so does that mean ATS prices for the coupe on the 2016 4 door ATS are going up?

    Aren't the competing European coupes all more expensive than their sedan counterparts?

    This car is such a beauty. If I won the lottery....

    Coupes are usually more expensive than the 4-door because they generally do not build a "rental-car" special version of it. The CTS coupe was more expensive than the sedan - more standard features, no lowest-level engine, usually better everything than the base-model sedan.

    Notice there is no 2.5 liter 4-cylinder on the coupe as there is on the sedan.

    Thanks Drew, Great point I had overlooked. That would cause a lower price but I doubt they would sell many or initially they would but people would not be happy with it.

    Why would someone buy this car? If a Camaro SS it at the same price point with a bigger engine, then what other features does the ATS have to offer that would be better?

    I ask out of concern for the ATS. Will there be a V-Series edition with the 3.6l V6 TT with 420 hp at $45K?

    Plenty of people that do not want a muscle gas guzzling car but want a fun to drive luxury coupe.

    The Camaro has a lousy interior. People would buy this over a Camaro or Mustang for luxury and probably size and looks, and handling. The same reason people buy the A5, C-class coupe, 4-series, etc instead of buying a muscle car.

    Once the Camaro shifts to the Alpha chassis then the comparison gets a little closer, which is why I think the next gen Camaro will have a 4-cylinder as the base, because they can't give the Camaro a better base engine than a Cadillac on the same platform.

    I like the car, but i still think Acura CL coupe or Honda Civic coupe meets G6 coupe when I see this thing. Maybe I could swipe a new emblem off the hood of one of these and put it on my G6 coupe grille and have the same effect.

    there is drama missing in the rear flanks, and the c pillar is a bit sparse......

    same dash as the sedan, too. they should have change that up too.

    Check out this interview from last October where Bob Lutz says that the new ATS was really supposed to be the next-gen G6 if Pontiac had not been eliminated.

    http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/29/lutz-says-washington-killed-pontiac-next-g6-was-to-be-ats-deriv/

    The plan was to REALLY make Pontiac a true driving excitement brand with an all high-performance and rear wheel drive only line-up.

    I'm wondering if it could simply be that the car doesn't photograph well... I was kind of 'meh' on the 4-Series styling until I saw one IRL...

      If the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal hasn't swayed you from wanting one, then you'll be happy to hear Volkswagen will once again be able to sell brand-new 2015 model year TDI models. Green Car Reports says near 11,000 TDI models will soon be back up for sale once they are updated with new software, making them legal.
      Volkswagen does caution those interested in picking up a new TDI to call their nearest dealership to see if they have any in stock.
      But that's not all. Volkswagen is offering some massive discounts on these models. CarsDirect reports that Volkswagen is offering 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy. Interested in leasing one? Volkswagen will offer a cash bonus of $8,500. 
      There are a couple of caveats to this offer. First, you need to have an excellent credit history to qualify for either offer. Second is that Volkswagen isn't advertising this offer.
      "We will not be advertising the available incentives from our financing arm as they [sic] vehicle availability will vary per dealership," said Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan.

      The long-delayed Cadillac Super Cruise system will be arriving as an option for the 2018 CT6 this fall. Described as "the industry’s first true hands-free driving technology for the highway,"(Tesla would argue otherwise) Super Cruise combines the driver assistance features currently on the CT6, along with a driver attention system and LiDAR-based mapping data.
      Unlike other systems that monitor forces on the steering wheel to see if the driver is paying attention, Super Cruise uses a camera mounted on the steering column to monitor a driver's head position and movement. If it detects the driver has turned their head away from the road, the system will issue an alert to have the driver bring their eyes back to the road via a light bar on the steering wheel and then the safety alert system. If the driver fails to do this, Super Cruise will bring the car to a stop and call OnStar “if necessary.”
      As for the "LiDAR-based mapping data", this scan of limited-access highways in the U.S. and Canada is paired with an improved GPS system, real-time cameras, and sensors to determine whether or not the system can come on, along with keeping the vehicle on the road.
      “American drivers travel twice as many miles on urban and suburban highways as they do on rural roads. Super Cruise™ allows hands-free driving and operates only within the environment where it has the most benefit. While it is technically possible for the technology to drive hands-free on other kinds of streets and roads, we feel strongly that this targeted approach is the best to build consumer and regulatory confidence and enthusiasm for advanced mobility,” said Barry Walkup, chief engineer for the system.
