Cadillac has announced that the 2015 ATS Coupe will sell for a base price of $38,990 including delivery.
Base coupes will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 272 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission in rear-wheel drive models. All-wheel drive versions can only be had with the six-speed automatic. Cadillac claims base model ATS Coupes will be able to sprint from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds.
Moving up, the car can also be had with a 3.6-liter V6 engine producing 321 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. However this engine is only available with the automatic and only in rear-wheel drive configurations.

The coupe rides on the same 109.3-inch wheelbase as the sedan, but has a more aggressive stance thanks to a wider front and rear track. To increase its performance, the ATS Coupe has a near perfect 50/50 weight distribution and can be had with GM’s FE3 sport suspension featuring Magnetic Ride Control, a mechanical limited-slip differential and high-capacity engine cooling.
The ATS Coupe costs roughly $2,000 more than a similarly equipped sedan model. In terms of competition, the ATS Coupe undercuts the Audi A5 Coupe by a few hundred dollars, the BMW 428i by about $2,000 and the Mercedes C250 Coupe by a few hundred.
