“The ATS enters a vehicle segment this year that’s one of the most competitive in the market, from both a price and performance standpoint,” said Don Butler, vice president of Cadillac Marketing, in a statement. “ATS will bring a distinctive presence and compelling value while offering quick, nimble, fun-to-drive dynamics that will appeal to the lifestyles of modern luxury buyers and challenge the segment’s status quo.”
A mid-level model, with a lightweight and powerful 2.0L turbocharged engine, starts from $36,985, plus destination, and will offer automatic and manual transmissions, as well as rear- or all-wheel drive.
Topping the engine range is a 3.6L V-6 rated at 321 horsepower (239 kW), starting from $43,935, plus destination. The 3.6L model comes equipped with an automatic transmission and standard content that includes CUE (Cadillac User Experience infotainment system), leather eight-way power seats with memory, adaptive start and more. All-wheel drive is available.
A full breakdown of pricing and availability of packages and options will be provided later this summer.
