2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Video

For the 2011 model year, Cadillac’s lineup expands again with the addition of the CTS coupe and 556-horsepower supercharged CTS-V coupe, which we faithfully tested for this video. According to Cars.com editor Mike Hanley, the CTS-V coupe is an impressive car, with a surprisingly quiet powertrain and luxurious cabin. However, the optional automatic transmission robs the car of some power, Hanley says. Overall, Hanley thinks the coupe is a good fit for most high-performance luxury coupe shoppers. Watch the video to find out why.

GM desperately needs to hire new designers and move away from the chiseled wedge look as it's awful.

Not sure why they "desperately" need to hire new designers when they are having so much success with the design.

The design is ugly and has been since it debuted and the sales numbers reflect it. Cadillac is nothing more than a bottom Tier luxury brand along with Volvo and Saab.

I'd be interesting in knowing to what sales numbers you are referring and how they compare to other luxury brands.

"The design is ugly and has been since it debuted and the sales numbers reflect it. Cadillac is nothing more than a bottom Tier luxury brand along with Volvo and Saab."

You need to stop commenting until you get your facts straight. Cadillac's sales have increased by more than any other luxury brand in 2010. The SRX is 2nd best selling crossover in its class. CTS outsells TL, A4, and IS virtually every month. Only the 3 series regularly outsells the CTS and that's partially because it has three body styles. Your assertions that the Art and Science styling is a failure are flat out wrong.

CAdillac outsells Acura, Audi, Lincoln and Infiniti every single month. Saabs sales are so small that they are barely on the map.

I like the front end but the chrome upper and lower grill look like they are from Pep Boys. I guess they gave up when it came to the rear.

According to Left Lane News, to date Cadillac has outsold Infiniti, Audi, and Volvo, but not MB, Lexus, BMW, and Acura. And for every SRX that Cadillac sells Lexus sells two RX's. That's amazing. I really like the CTS but only the four door as the two door is butt ugly. Literally.
