2013 Cadillac ATS | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine – Now, The ATS is Cadillac’s first shot at competing directly with the world’s best entry level luxury sedans including the benchmark BMW 3 Series in terms of size, handling, technology and refinement. Riding on GM’s new rear/all wheel drive Alpha platform, the ATS was optimized at the demanding Nurburgring track in Germany and has the responsive driving dynamics to prove it.
The small Cadillac is back. Forget the quirky Cimarron from the 1980s; the 2013 Cadillac ATS will spring from a new rear and all wheel drive architecture that borrows heavily from the larger CTS. The new ATS gets a base 2.5 liter four cylinder engine capable of 200 horsepower and 188 pound feet of torque. Stepping up to the turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder yields 270 hp and 260 lb ft, while the range-topping 3.6-liter V6 available only in North America puts out 318 hp and 267 lb ft of torque. The turbo 2.0 liter should be loads of fun and still return good fuel economy, while the V6 signals Cadillac’s clearest intent to challenge established small sport luxury makers.
All three engines are direct injected, and transmission choices include a six speed manual or automatic. The 2013 ATS is available in rear wheel and all wheel drive with an optional driver adjustable sport suspension using Magnetic Ride Control active damping. Inside, the ATS will use Cadillac’s latest gadgetry and interfaces, including an LED gauge cluster, voice activated smartphone integration, an 8 inch touchscreen and trim combinations of wood, leather, metal and carbon fiber.
