It has been long reported that the next-generation Cadillac CTS will be based on General Motors’ new Alfa rear-wheel-drive platform, which will also underpin the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro and the Cadillac BMW 3-Series fighter, internally known as the ATS. It was also reported that the next CTS will come as a sedan only and will grow in size. The thinking behind that is that the Cadillac ATS better fits within the size of the BMW-Series, Mercedes C-Class and Audi A4 category than the CTS and is more able to accommodate a coupe and convertible version.
However, since the launch of the Cadillac CTS and the Cadillac CTS Coupe, both models have become a huge success and play a major role in rebuilding Cadillac’s brand image. With that being said, executives have decided not to kill the CTS Coupe even if the next model gets larger with the Alpha platform.
Word has it that GM’s design department has come up with some stunning design proposals for the new CTS Coupe and are also working on a convertible variant of the car. The next-generation CTS Coupe will be larger in size and will give Cadillac some time to finish up a low-volume model that will see a six-digit price tag.
The next-generation Cadillac CTS Coupe is expected to debut sometime in 2014.
