Premium luxury and performance for the aspiring driver.
Those aspiring a premium 2017 Cadillac ATS can choose between two models, differentiated in purpose and personality: ATS Premium Luxury and ATS Premium Performance. Standard content from the ATS Turbo Luxury is included in ATS Premium Luxury and ATS Premium Performance Sedans and Coupes, with a more powerful 3.6L V-6 engine and luxury interior, exterior and technological appointments befitting a premium experience.
Additional race-inspired componentry and systems distinguish the Cadillac ATS Premium Performance as the ATS of choice for those aspiring incredible performance without a V-Series badge.
The premium sedans and coupes will be powered exclusively by the company’s award-winning 3.6L V-6 engine with SAE-certified output of 335 horsepower (250 kW) and 285 lb-ft of torque (386Nm). Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and Stop/Start technology improve fuel economy up to a company-estimated nine percent when compared to the previous V-6. The powerful and efficient 3.6L V-6 engine drives performance through a paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission.
Cadillac ATS Premium Performance Sedans and Coupes are RWD only and feature exclusive performance technology - a limited-slip rear differential, high-capacity engine cooling and Cadillac’s famous Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) adaptive damping system. Standard on the ATS-V Sedan and Coupe, CTS V-Sport performance sedan and CTS-V super sedan, MRC “reads” the road and delivers precise body motion control to suit conditions by changing the damping every millisecond. High-capacity engine cooling regulates the powerful 3.6L V-6, and the segment-best limited slip rear differential ensures all of the powertrain’s torque is applied to the tires during hard cornering.
Cadillac ATS Premium Luxury Sedans feature 17” premium painted aluminum wheels, with 18” polished forged-aluminum wheels on Coupes. On ATS Premium Performance vehicles, summer-only performance tires are wrapped around 18” forged alloy performance wheels on Sedans and 18” machined-face forged alloy wheels on Coupes. Performance tires increase grip and stopping power for confidence-inspiring control.
For premium Cadillac ATS models, heated 14-way driver and 12-way passenger performance seats include lumbar support and power-adjustable driver bolsters to optimize lateral support during high-load cornering. The cabin features magnesium paddle shifters, alloy sport pedals and a standard sunroof. A power tilt and telescoping steering column and digital Head-Up Display come standard in the ATS Premium Performance.
Bold exterior lighting signatures lend technologically advanced style and function. The exterior High-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps, light-emitting diode (LED) vertical light signature elements, steering-directed Adaptive Forward Lighting, and IntelliBeam high-beam headlamps come standard on the premium trims. Standard illuminating exterior door handles light when the doors are unlocked, providing a welcome glow in low light conditions.
Premium Cadillac ATS models employ advanced safety technologies – including radar, cameras and ultrasonic sensors – to help prevent crashes. Standard safety features include Cadillac’s Safety Alert Seat, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
