Choosing Your Cadillac ATS

Cadillac offers the 2018 ATS in ATS, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Premium Performance grades. Cadillac markets an ATS-V model separately.

The standard engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four generating 272 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Cadillac pairs this engine with a TREMEC six-speed manual gearbox on rear-wheel drive models or to an eight-speed automatic transmission for no additional cost. Also available is a 3.5-liter V6 engine generating 335 hp and 285 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard.

The 2018 ATS makes an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with the turbo engine and the automatic transmission or 20/29 mpg city/highway with the manual gearbox. The ATS V6 earns 20/30 mpg city/highway with rear-wheel drive or 19/27 mpg city/highway with all-wheel drive.

The ATS is available in two standard no-extra-cost exterior colors. An additional six metallic and two tri-coat finishes are also available, adding $625/coupe or $595/sedan and $1,225/coupe or $1,195/sedan, respectively.
