Cadillac launches 2015 ATS Coupe
The 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe rides on the same 277.6 cm wheelbase as the sedan, but features its own bodywork. The roof, doors, rear fenders and trunk lid are unique to the Coupe, along with a specific front fascia and front fenders that accommodate a wider track than the sedan. It is also the first production model to wear Cadillac’s revised crest.
Bold lighting elements are a Cadillac signature feature and the ATS Coupe advances that tradition with available light-emitting diode, or LED, headlamps with Adaptive Forward Lighting. All models feature projector-beam headlamps, while high-intensity-discharge headlamps and front vertical LED light signatures are included.
Elements that contribute to the ATS Coupe’s balanced performance and responsive characteristics include, a near perfect 50/50 weight balance and low center of gravity, a five-link independent rear suspension, Brembo brakes, and a belt-driven electric variable-effort steering gear from ZF Steering Systems.
A Bose premium audio system with Active Noise Cancelation technology is standard on all models and includes electronic sound enhancement on models equipped with the available premium surround sound audio system. Exclusive to ATS Coupe and differing from other manufacturers’ systems that pipe recorded engine sounds through the audio system.
Cadillac’s first-ever compact luxury Coupe goes on sale in December, offering drivers rear-wheel drive and the power from a 3.6L six-cylinder engine rated at 321 horsepower and 373 Nm of torque.
