NZ to see Cadillac CTS Coupe in 2009

The Cadillac CTS Coupe will join the CTS sedan in the New Zealand Cadillac line-up in 2009. Premiering last week at the 2008 Australian International Motor Show, the concept version of the Cadillac CTS Coupe extends the design of its sedan predecessor to cast a striking road presence.

The CTS Coupe Concept, which was unveiled at the 2008 North American International Auto Show in January, has a classic 2+2 interior layout, highlighted by black leather and microfibre trim that is complemented by yellow ochre-coloured seat inserts and leather stitching.

It is designed to accommodate a range of engines, including Cadillac’s popular 3.6L Direct Injection V-6.

Highlighting all-new sculpted bodywork from the front fenders back, the CTS Coupe projects a unique profile unlike anything else on the road. Its fast-rake styling (it has the same wheelbase as the CTS, but an overall height that is approximately 51 mm lower and an overall length that is 51 mm shorter — blends sculpted bodywork that bulges around the wheels, giving the vehicle a ready-to-pounce stance.

As is the case with its design, the CTS Coupe extends the capabilities of the sedan in terms of performance technology. The CTS Coupe ascertains the sedan’s 3.6L V-6 engine, including the 227 kW Direct Injection power plant but has also been designed to accommodate other engine variants. A six-speed manual transmission backs the engine, sending torque to an independently sprung rear axle.

Behind the chrome, split-spoke, aluminium alloy wheels is a set of high-performance brakes, featuring cross-drilled rotors. Six-piston callipers clamp down on the front rotors, while four-piston callipers grab the rear rotors.

The Cadillac CTS Coupe is expected to go on sale in New Zealand in late 2009 and pricing is yet to be determined.
