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 delivering an EPA-estimated 27 mpg 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:
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 color choices – Phantom Gray Metallic, Majestic Plum Metallic, Mocha Steel Metallic 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 exterior features
The CTS’s distinctive shield-shaped front grille was redesigned in 2012 and is updated again for 2013 with a bright appearance on the vertical and horizontal bars that compose the grille’s frame. Models equipped with the CTS Touring Package feature a grille with dark vertical and horizontal bars.
Additional standard and available exterior features include:
CTS Coupe interior
The interior of the CTS Coupe emphasizes technical precision with hand-crafted details. An integrated center stack design – with a satin metallic finish – blends into the lower instrument panel that sweeps forward and away from front-seat occupants.
Available heated and ventilated seats incorporate “thin-seat” technology for maximum occupant comfort and enhanced rear-seat leg, knee and foot room. French stitching is used throughout the interior, including the upper instrument panel, door inserts, seats and the shifter boot.
Standard and available features include:
The new Sport Blue interior package offers Twilight Blue leather seating surfaces with sueded fabric inserts, along with the Midnight Sapele Wood Trim package and the Luxury Level One package content, which includes a theft-deterrent system, accent lighting and Rainsense wipers.
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 5.5 pounds (2.5 kg) over the weight of a comparable aluminum intake and an integrated cylinder head/exhaust manifold design that saves approximately 13 pounds (6 kg) 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. Its contents include 19-inch aluminum wheels and summer tires, rear load leveling and speed-sensitive variable-assist steering.
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:
