2014 Cadillac ATS Overview

Automotive Editor - June 13, 2014

Cadillac engineers developed the ATS's driving dynamics on Germany’s famed Nürburgring with the BMW 3 Series in their sights. By most accounts, their hard work paid off—many journalists say the ATS handles better than a new, softer 3 Series.

What's New for 2014

Introduced as an all-new model in 2013, the ATS has few changes this year, limited to new colors and content changes in option packages.

Later in the year, we expect a 2015 coupe to join the sedan in Cadillac showrooms.

Choosing Your Cadillac ATS

The first choice you'll make is drive type:

Next up is a decision between three engines:

  • The base motor is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 202 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque hooked to a 6-speed automatic. With rear-wheel drive you can expect 22 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.
  • The turbocharged 2-liter inline-four puts out a decent 272 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy in rear-wheel drive is 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.
  • The top-tier 3.6-liter V6 generates 321 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. Look for mileage of 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

Then there are four trim levels:


The base ATS can be ordered with either four-cylinder engine. Features include Bluetooth, a Bose seven-speaker stereo system, and dual-zone automatic climate control.


All engines are available at the Luxury level, which also adds equipment like leather upholstery, remote start, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.


The 2.5-liter four drops from view—Performance buyers choose between the turbo four and the six. The Bose stereo now has 10 speakers, and there are extra features like automatic high-beams, and performance front seats.


The Premium adds navigation, a full-color head-up display, and a split-folding rear seat.
