CADILLAC ATS Ready for our Novi Dealership this Summer
The latest new CADILLAC model, 2013 CADILLAC ATS, has been greatly anticipated For about a year now. We also talked about some of its features in one of last month's blog posts. Finally, after all the waiting, the ATS will head to CADILLAC of Novi this summer.
The CADILLAC ATS comes standard with a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, with the option of either an automatic or manual transmission. The new model also comes in either rear wheel or all-wheel drive, which is great for cold weather drivers like us here in Novi. A 3.6-liter V6 upgrade hits 320 hp, and reaches 0 to 60 in less than 6 seconds. Standards on this trim include 8 way leather power seats and adaptive start. The highway rating for the CADILLAC ATS is over 30 MPG, according to EPA estimates.
"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, VP of CADILLAC Marketing. "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."1
GM reportedly hired 440 new employees at the auto maker's Lansing Grand River plant, to build the CADILLAC ATS. It's part of a $190 million investment the luxury car maker has put in the plant.
