The much-anticipated Cadillac CTS Coupe will arrive in May of next year as a 2011 model. The sporty two-door won’t be alone either, as the new model will debut alongside a high-powered CST-V sibling.
According to a report on TheCarConnection, the two door version of the entry-level Cadillac CTS will share the same powertrains as the sedan and Sport Wagon, which will include a new-for-2010 base engine – a 270hp direct-injection 3.0-liter V6. Like the sedan, the coupe will be offered with a manual transmission, while the Sport Wagon will be automatic only.
The CTS-V Coupe is expected to be powered by the exact same engine as the sedan with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 making 556hp. The car should be an impressive performer as (until recently when it was eclipsed by the Porsche Panamera), the sedan version held the Nürburgring lap record (for a four-door) with a time of 7:59.
