CTS Coupe to debut at Los Angeles autoshow

It appears that in addition to showing off the new SRX and the production CTS Sport Wagon, Cadillac also took some select journalists aside (nope, apparently we don’t qualify) to show off the production CTS Coupe in the lead-up to its public debut at this year’s LA auto show (expect the debut on Nov 19th or 20th).

CTS CoupeReports have the new coupe looking almost exactly like the concept with the same radical sheet metal and only some minor detail changes. Electronic door switches have been confirmed and we now know that a rear-view camera to compensate for the body’s lack of rear visibility will be part of the package.

Powertrains were not revealed, but everything points to at least one version of the 3.6l V-6 as well as the supercharged LSA V-8 from the CTS-V sedan. Expect export versions to also have the 2.9l diesel V-6 available.

Production and sales should begin for the coupe in the second half of 2009 as a 2010 model.

    That’s only 3 months away! I’m anxious to see the GM Ordering Guide information, especially the interior color selections, since the concept Coupe had the vibrant two-toned, custom stitched, leather interior. I would settle for the Linen shade of leather offered on the DTS, or perhaps red leather inserts, “a la STS-V” or something new and different than the current CTS’s. It’s great to hear there will be a back-up camera, and I hope that spreads to the whole CTS line-up. I’m also curious to see the production wheels, now that the Sport Wagon has optional 19″ wheels. This will be the coolest Caddy to arrive on the market for quite some time!
