Shaving two doors from the ATS sedan’s complement, the ATS Coupe rides on the same wheelbase, but is longer in overall length, lower at the roofline, and rides on a wider track.
At 109.3 inches, the wheelbase should ensure usable rear seats. The 0.8-inch wider track will enhance the dynamics of the ATS Coupe, as will the slightly lower center of gravity due to the lower roof, which drops 1.1 inches from the height of the sedan.
“The wider track also helps improve steering precision and direct response,” said Cadillac executive chief engineer David Leone in a statement today. “The lower roof contributes to a lower center of gravity height, which also reduces roll and improves steering response.”
Overall length of the 2015 ATS Coupe is extended by 0.8 inches to give a slightly more angular, swept-back appearance.
More detailed pricing and specifications will be released closer to the car’s on-sale date this summer.
