2019 Cadillac ATS-V: One New Color, Deletion Of ATS-V Sedan And Championship Edition

Recently, we told you about the changes in store for the 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe. And now, we have the scoop on the changes and updates for the 2019 ATS-V.

First and foremost is the deletion of the ATS-V Sedan, which was to be expected given the discontinuation of the ATS Sedan after the 2018 model year. As such, the deletion of the ATS-V Sedan means that the 2019 ATS-V will be offered exclusively in the two-door coupe body style. Notably, discontinuing the ATS and ATS-V Sedans enables Cadillac to retool the Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan to produce the upcoming Cadillac CT5.

From there, the 2019 ATS-V loses two exterior colors while gaining one new one:

Deleted Colors

  • Phantom Gray Metallic
  • Vector Blue Metallic

New Colors

  • Wave Metallic (available at extra charge)

Moreover, the 2019 ATS-V deletes two LPO features: the Winter Protection Package and the Vehicle Cover. LPO, or Limited Production Option, is a feature that can be ordered with the vehicle by a dealer and shipped to it with the vehicle for installation. The item can also be purchased by a customer at the dealer as an accessory.

ATS-V Champion Edition

Finally, the ATS-V Championship Edition package is deleted. Introduced for the 2018 ATS-V to celebrate Cadillac’s success in the IMSA racing series, the package included:

  • Jet Black with Morello Red accents exterior color
  • 18″ x 9″ front and 18″ x 9.5″ rear polished face forged alloy wheels
  • Black chrome grille
  • Black chrome rear trim (LPO)
  • Red Brembo calipers

And that concludes the changes and updates for the 2019 Cadillac ATS-V, or more appropriately, the 2019 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe.

The Cadillac Society Take

We expect that 2019 will be the final year of ATS production, as Cadillac gears up to launch the 2020 Cadillac CT5, which will replace both the ATS and CTS lines.

  1. I never like the ATS because in my opinion it isn’t a good value. The current CTS on the other hand is a good value, I own a 2017 3.6 Luxury and I love it. It looks great, drive beautifully and is exactly the right. I’ve read that the 2020 model will be smaller, please don’t make it too small. No smaller than the previous generation, 2008-2013, PLEASE!

    • What defines a good value?

      The ATS has always been a bargain compared to its most direct rivals from other countries…
