• What is it? Cadillac’s answer to the BMW 3-Series and Audi A5
• The basics: Efficient V-6 power or sledgehammer V-8
• On sale: May 2010, with a public showing and more details at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show
• Price: $40,000-plus (est.)

The delayed two-door version of the Cadillac CTS is coming in May, and when it arrives, the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe will be joined right away by a V-8 CTS-V Coupe, too.
However, we won’t have to wait until then to see the new model as General Motors has announced today that the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe will be on display at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show.

First shown in concept form back in early 2008, the new CTS Coupe joins the regular CTS Sedan, the 556 horsepower CTS-V and new CTS Sport Wagon as the foundation of Cadillac’s lineup. The story doesn’t end there however, as GM has also confirmed that a high-performance V-Series edition of the Coupe will also be released next year.

As for the standard CTS Coupe, power will come from a 3.6-liter direct injected V-6, which is good for 304 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 27 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg in the city. A 6-speed manual transmission comes fitted as standard, while a 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters for pseudo manual control is offered as an option.

Customers will be able to pick from two different performance levels: a Performance Package with 18 inch wheels and all-season tires or a Summer Tire Performance Package with 19 inch wheels and a higher level of road holding capability. StabiliTrak electronic stability control system is standard.
