Report: Cadillac ATS Sedan First To Market In 2012, V-Series Coming

Follow Nelson

It's good to have sources in this business, and GM Inside News has some of the best GM sources around. The fruits of their friendships? A timeline on when each of the different Cadillac ATS body styles will be released--and a solid hint at a V-Series version.

The first ATS out of the gate will be the ATS sedan, coming in 2012, followed nine months later by the coupe as a 2014 model. The convertible will again have a nine-month gestation period before arriving midway through the 2014 model year. But the biggie, the V-Series, isn't due until 2015.

According to the repor, standard ATS models will sport an all-new four-banger as the base engine, with a V-6 available. But the ATS-V is expected to carry forward the V-8 tradition. Whether it'll be a supercharged 556-plus horsepower monster isn't yet known, but here's hoping it is.

Interstingly absent from the list is a wagon version of the ATS, which has long been rumored to be part of the plan. Perhaps GM has decided a compact wagon will be too low-volume to make the cut, or perhaps details on its release date simply haven't made it through the crack in the dam yet.

  1. It should be a good car if the CTS is any indication, gonna take awhile to convince people it is a good 3 series competitor though, but a V-series should help that.

    Bad stuff?

  2. 556 in a small sedan will be a hoot! Here's to hoping, indeed.

  3. I am betting the LSA will not go into this car, probably one of the next gen OHV engines that GM is working on, or a twin turbo V6
