When it first hit the market in 2012, the Cadillac ATS was hailed by critics as a legitimate American competitor to German luxury sport sedans like the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, eventually earning the title of 2013 North American Car of the Year. With the debut of its all-new high-performance ATS-V at the LA Auto Show last month, Cadillac is now taking aim at power-packed luxury cars like the BMW M3 and M4.
Slated to become the fastest production model ever from Cadillac when the first versions are manufactured next spring, the 2016 ATS-V will house a Twin Turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine that churns out an estimated 455 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 185 mph. Designed in both coupe and sedan form, Cadillac’s new high-performance model also builds on the ATS’ revered ride and handling with a series of chassis and suspension upgrades that boost structural rigidity by 25 percent and increase roll stiffness by 50 percent.
“The launch of the ATS proved that Cadillac can play with the big boys in the sport-sedan segment, and the upcoming launch of the ATS-V will show the industry that it can also leave them in the dust,” said David McAvay, general manager of Mastria Buick GMC Cadillac, a Cadillac dealership in Raynham, Mass. “The ATS-V will not only harness its immense power to provide breathtaking cornering, but it will also come with the advanced technology you’d expect in a top-of-the-line German model while standing out with its elegant American styling.”
Adorned by decorative stitching and high-quality materials like carbon-fiber trim, the driver-oriented cabin of the Cadillac ATS-V sports a unique version of the 5.7-inch, three-window instrument display that features V-Series graphics and exclusive gauge readouts. Buyers can also opt for new 16-way-adjustable Mulan-leather RECARO performance front seats with adjustable bolsters and sueded microfiber inserts and seatbacks. When it comes to staying connected on the road, the ATS-V will offer a wealth of standard in-car technology, including the CUE infotainment system with Bluetooth compatibility and natural voice recognition, OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and USB, auxiliary and SD memory card inputs.
