As is standard practice, we weren’t given any info about the concept (pictured above) – but we’ve been assured that it’s totally new and something we haven’t laid eyes on yet. The photo of the concept is fairly obscured by dark tones and shady angles, but if we look hard enough, we see four doors… or maybe that’s just the teaser playing mind tricks. Caddy says that its “latest concept advances the brand’s Art & Science philosophy.” So what do we think it is?
Since it has four doors, we’re guessing it to be either the ATS compact (3-series fighter) or the XTS large sedan, both of which have been confirmed by GM during this summer’s media preview. Whatever it will end up being, expect the concept to be high in performance or environmental friendliness – or even both!
In addition to the mysterious concept, Cadillac will also unveil its production version of the gorgeous 2011 CTS-V Coupe. Expect all the fixin’s of a CTS V-spec model: 556 hp and 551 lb.-ft. of torque coming from the 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V8, available with your choice of six-speed auto or manual transmissions, sport-tuned suspension with MagneRide technology, and 19-inch alloys. Production of the CTS-V coupe is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2010 as a 2011 model.
Before the 2010 NAIAS begins, check out the high-resolution teaser of the concept (above). We also have GM’s short press release after the break.
