Product Information


Cadillac CTS Coupe is a dramatically styled 2+2 rear-drive sports coupe that complements a range of models and body styles that includes the all-new 2014 CTS Sedan, as well as CTS Wagon and the high-performance V-Series.

Offered in Base, Performance and Premium Collections, all models feature a powerful and efficient 3.6L engine, rated at 318 horsepower (237 kW) and with a fuel consumption rating of 7.3 L/100km on the highway. All-wheel drive is available, along with Touring and Performance packages that enhance the appearance and sporting driving feel.

Distinctive features include:

  • Classic hardtop styling, with no conventional B-pillar
  • Touch-pad operation for the doors removes the need for conventional door handles, creating a technical, clean profile
  • A windshield laid at a fast angle (62.3 degrees) and a long, nearly horizontal backglass area combine to create a dramatic profile
  • Sculpted lower front fascia
  • Rear fascia with mesh lower grilles
  • Centre-outlet exhaust with twin dihedral-shaped tips that pass through the rear fascia
  • Rear spoiler integrated into the signature centre high-mounted stop lamp
  • Sculpted roof-mounted antenna for OnStar and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

Continuous improvements have helped keep the CTS family at the top of customer consideration lists and earned critical praise. That tradition continues in 2014, as the CTS Coupe offers four new exterior colour choices – Phantom Grey Metallic, Majestic Plum Metallic, Mocha Steel Metallic (late availability) and Red Obsession Tintcoat (available at an extra cost) – and a new Sport Blue interior package.

Please see separate releases for CTS Wagon and CTS Sedan. Also, please see the separate release for CTS-V Coupe.

CTS Coupe powertrain

The CTS Coupe’s 3.6L direct-injected V-6 delivers an SAE-certified 318 horsepower (237 kW). Lightweight features help reduce overall weight for greater efficiency and a more favorable front-to-rear weight balance. Examples include a composite intake manifold that saves approximately 2.5 kg (5.5 pounds) over the weight of a comparable aluminum intake and an integrated cylinder head/exhaust manifold design that saves approximately 6 kg (13 pounds) per engine.

The Hydra-Matic 6L45 six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all CTS Coupe RWD models. The Hydra-Matic 6L50 is used with AWD models.

CTS Coupe chassis and suspension

The CTS chassis enables a great balance of performance and luxury. The hardware includes structural enhancements via a tower-to-tower brace; large, four-wheel disc brakes and a ZF steering rack. Two suspension tuning packages are available: Sport and Performance.

The Sport suspension is standard on all models and the Performance suspension is available on Performance and Premium trim levels with RWD in the 19-inch Summer Tire Performance Package. The uplevel suspension package is matched with 19-inch polished aluminum wheels and summer tires, performance cooling system and performance brake system.

Suspension tuning for the CTS Coupe is different from Sedan and Wagon models, with specific stabilizer bar diameters and spring rates. Additional features and details include:

  • An independent short/long arm (SLA) front suspension system, featuring low-mass aluminum for the upper and lower control arms, as well as the knuckles
  • A multi-link rear suspension with a fully isolated subframe
  • StabiliTrak electronic chassis control system is standard. It is integrated with the car’s standard four-channel ABS with the full-function traction control, as well as the hydraulic brake assist and engine control systems
  • A power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system
  • Four-wheel disc brakes with four-channel ABS.
