2016 Cadillac ATS-V


The first-generation Cadillac ATS was available in four-door sedan and two-door coupe body styles until its final model year, as the sedan configuration was discontinued after 2018. It rides on the rear-wheel-drive-based Alpha platform and is powered by the twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter LF4, which was rated at 464 hp (346 kW; 470 PS) and 445 lb⋅ft (603 Nm) for this particular application.

Initially, the non-V ATS Sedan made its debut as a 2013 model at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit while the ATS Coupe was unveiled at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The more rambunctious ATS-V would then enter the market for the 2016 model year as the automaker’s answer to the BMW M3/M4, Mercedes-Benz C Class AMG, and Audi RS4/RS5.

 Cadillac ATS-V Discontinuation

The production of the Cadillac ATS-V – as well as its older sibling, the CTS-V along with the entire ATS and CTS lineups – ended before spring of 2019.

The death of the ATS-V came at a time when consumers favored crossovers and SUVs, which meant Cadillac began axing products in low-demand.

While the all-new CT4-V Blackwing is the spiritual successor to the ATS-V, it’s worth clarifying that, from a positioning standpoint, the CT5-V Blackwing is actually a direct successor to the first-generation ATS-V Sedan. However, from a mechanical standpoint, the CT5-V Blackwing is more closely related to the third-generation CTS-V Sedan.
