The mid-level model will get Cadillac’s much-hyped 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, good for some 270 horsepower. Buyers get a choice of manual or automatic transmissions, and Cadillac is positioning this model as the “driver’s car” of the ATS range. Pricing on this version to start at $35,795, including destination charge.
Topping the ATS range will be the 3.6-liter V-6 variant, good for an estimated 320 horsepower. Slotting into the luxury role, standard features will include Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system, leather upholstery with an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat and adaptive start. This trim level will be priced from $42,090, including destination charge.
Don Butler, vice president of marketing for Cadillac, says the ATS “will bring a distinctive presence and compelling value while offering quick, nimble, fun-to-drive dynamics that will... challenge the segment’s status quo.” BMW, we believe that last bit was aimed at you.
