    Not having a coupe is an absolute disaster. People in this price range want to be able to have something unique a lot of the time. It's why great styled coupes bring a lot of cache to the brands. CTS Coupe is still talked about to this day as one of the great coupes put out in the last few decades. Give us something like that again!!!!
    If I recall correctly, they achieved relative sales success with this strategy.

    If I were Cadillac, I would find a way to build another SUV, no need wasting money on sedans and sedan based vehicles... Load up on SUV's, keep 3 sedans and one coupe convertible, plus one last car, an electric C8

    I've seen one ATS coupe on the road (not that I've seen that many sedans).
    I've actually seen a bunch recently.. maybe they were being garage kept til the warm weather broke... anyway.. Yeah..It much be striking. When I had my VCoupe it was always a head turner and conversation piece

    CTS Coupe 2012

    Re: Cadillac CT5 Sedan Likely Won't Spawn Wagon Or Coupe Variants

    WELL, Good by GM, I will be buying a AUDI A6 not a Cadillac CT5 (CTS). I LOVED my CTS COUPE but too bad. I never went to the dealer to have any work on it, not even the free oil changes. I stayed synthetic oil, never had a problem. Last the interior chrome started to peel. What kind of CRAP are they using for chrome.

    So U're pushing a 7 year old CTS that hasn't had any issues but the chrome is peeling... and U are choosing to go get an Audi A6.. which is a sedan, not a coupe.. and generally has more maintenance issues than the Hindenburg after a duct tape patch up job

    I really am awestruck at some peoples's way of thinking

    They'd be foolish to not bring a V. I think that is a no-brainer.
    Yes, but also to some it's sad how things have changed in the market.

    The weird C-pillar might look decent on a coupe. This is disappointing.

    It's disappointing that they aren't duplicating the success of the CTS coupe. It was and still is a striking design.

    Cadillacs are about flexing, bravado, and outward bragging. Boldness sells Cadillacs -- a rolling metaphor for America. If Cadillac is going with run-of-the-mill Asian/German-knockoff styling, it loses its raison d'etre. You may as well get a more refined Audi.

    Forget a Convertible. Proper GT Convertibles are Designed as Convertibles first, Coupes second.

    Well, the wife loves hers.
    The newer Cadillacs have a unique LED sighting signature.
    They look like nothing else when they're lit up... there's no doubt it's a Cadillac coming at you.

    XTS Platinums had an optional LED package on top of it. It's not part of the LED headlight package, which it also has.
    They are everywhere... sills, door dandles, the bottoms of the mirrors and of course the front and back. Inside has them too.
    She was commenting on how cool it looks when she unlocks it at night and everything turns on.
    It is quite striking, nothing at all like the base cars.

    Coupe is coming. It just won't be called "CT5 coupe".
