2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe 2.0T Gets Increased Torque Output

Follow Nelson

The 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe is a demonstration of America’s—and particularly Cadillac’s—resurgent design excellence, and now we know it’ll have the bark to back up its bite.

While horsepower in the 2015 ATS Coupe 2.0T remains the same as the pre-2015 sedan’s 272-hp output, the Coupe gets a boost of 35 pound-feet of torque to a total of 295 lb-ft--which matches the upgrades for the 2015 ATS sedan. The increase comes from a revised engine calibration yielding increased boost pressure from the 2.0-liter four-cylinder’s turbocharger.

The end result is an engine that produces a remarkable 147.5 lb-ft per liter, on top of its existing 136 hp per liter. Best of all from the driver’s perspective, 90 percent or more of the peak torque is available from 2,100 rpm to 3,000 rpm—and the full 295 lb-ft is available from 3,000 rpm to 4,600 rpm.

Why add the extra torque to the ATS Coupe 2.0T? The car’s chief engineer, David Masch explains, “The ATS is already the most agile vehicle in its respective classes,” said Masch. “The additional torque works to further improve on an already dynamic vehicle.”
