Dream Cars: Cadillac ATS Turbo 2017

Cadillac’s ATS product line contains key refinements for 2017, including new and more streamlined trim levels that further emphasize the car’s class-leading driving dynamics.  The 2017 Cadillac ATS Turbo Sedan, the fastest, most powerful turbo-4 luxury sedan in its class, becomes the entry point to the ATS Sedan and Coupe family.

Renamed for better customer clarity, the new trim levels – ATS, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Premium Performance – provide richer levels of content and technology and move the Cadillac ATS in line with recently launched Cadillac entries, including the all-new Cadillac CT6 prestige sedan and all-new Cadillac XT5 luxury crossover. The configuration enhancements benefit both Sedan and Coupe models.

A Carbon Black sport package, two exterior colors and 17” wheels in two finishes are also new for 2017, complementing the bold, unmistakably Cadillac signature exterior and interior design.

The Cadillac ATS product line is Cadillac’s most compact and sporty entry, setting into motion the current era of Cadillac’s driver’s cars offering exhilarating performance.  Originally introduced as a 2013 model, ATS won both the North American Car of the Year and Esquire Car of the Year awards that year. Built on a unique rear-wheel drive chassis that also underpins the larger CTS, the brand added a dynamic Coupe model in 2015, and then added the high-performance V-Series models in 2016.  Key aspects of the 2017 ATS range are detailed in the sections that follow.

Cadillac ATS Turbo – the fastest, most-powerful turbo-4 compact luxury sedan and coupe in its class

The 2017 Cadillac ATS Turbo Sedan and Coupe, the new entry points to the ATS line-up, is powered by the most powerful turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the compact luxury class. SAE-certified at 272 horsepower (203 kW) and 295 lb-ft of torque (400 Nm), the turbocharged engine produces a broad torque band and high boost levels to give the lightweight ATS Turbo models an exhilarating feeling of immediate power on demand. The engine, which bests the turbo-4 offerings from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Lexus, is standard for 2017.

A driver-focused interior with integrated technology and crafted materials complements the exterior elements and supports the Cadillac ATS Turbo’s driving experience. Standard performance equipment includes Brembo front brakes, performance-tuned ZF premium steering and choice of six-speed manual or paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmissions – a choice unavailable with many luxury competitors.
