Cadillac ATS Invades Detroit
So the upcoming 2013 ATS sedan, which is poised to take over flagship reigns from Cadillac CTS, introduced itself to an ambitious public at this year's North American International Auto Show. Fans were impressed, but is the competition worried? Hopefully, because that's exactly what this American auto maker is going for.
We can expect the new, smaller sedan from the luxury car company at Cadillac of Novi in Novi, MI later this year. Cadillac is also betting on vehicles like ATS will bring new and youthful shoppers onto dealer lots.
"American manufacturers like Cadillac use style and panache to attract attention, and win new buyers," according to Detroit News writer Neil Winton.1
ATS comes standard with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine. Turbo-charged, this vehicle produces 270 horsepower. Cadillac also announced plans to add a diesel variant overseas.
That's right, ATS will launch in Europe. Its high output
four-cylinder engine will most likely produce top level performance and fuel
economy, big pluses for European shoppers.
