Cadillac Announces 2015 ATS Coupe For Canada: Specifications And Features

Shortly after the car’s global unveiling, Cadillac has announced the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe for Canada which made its Canadian debut at the 2014 Toronto Auto Show.

The recently launched, Cadillac ATS Sedan has showcased brilliant levels of performance and this is why Cadillac found it wise enough to come up with a Coupe version of the same. And as per everybody’s expectations. though the ATS Coupe is not hugely different from the sedan in terms of power output, the coupe did amaze us all by its sheer ability to perform even better than the saloon.

As standard, the 2015 ATS Coupe will be powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder unit but performance lovers can also go for the bigger and more powerful 3.6 liter 6-cylinder model. The standard 2.0 L heart is good for 272 hp (203 kW) and peak torque of 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). The mighty V6 engine is capable of delivering 321 hp (239 kW) and peak torque of 275 lb-ft (373 Nm). The ATS Coupe will also be available in rear wheel drive or all wheel drive drive configuration and will equip the Hydra-Matic 6L45 6-speed automatic transmission as standard.

Under the skin of the new ATS model packs a plethora of technical improvements and features including a five-link independent rear suspension, underbody aerodynamic shields, Brembo front brakes, belt-driven electric variable-effort steering gear from ZF Steering Systems, a multi-link double-pivot MacPherson-strut front suspension with direct-acting stabilizer bar and 18 inch aluminum wheels.
