New Trims for the 2017 Cadillac ATS
For 2017, Cadillac has completely restructured the ATS family of vehicles calling it their most compact and sporty line-up to-date.
Part of the brands’ newly refined vehicle product line is the class-leading power of the ATS Turbo Sedan and Coupe – the entry point to the fleet.
This ATS Turbo offers true performance car-enthusiasts a compact luxury sports sedan that can compete with the likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
New trim levels which were added for both the ATS Sedan and Coupe, include the Luxury, Premium Luxury and Premium Performance.
For 2017, Cadillac replaces the 2.5-liter four cylinder with a turbo-charged 4- cylinder engine capable of 272 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque which comes standard.
According to information Arnie Bauer received from Cadillac, a super charged 335-hp V6 is also available for the more adventurous driver.
The American automaker is striving for greater content and technology in the new ATS – and considering the fact that this vehicle has its roots in Germany, this Cadillac is sure to persuade buyers who prefer foreign-made luxury sedans to give it a second look.
Cadillac stepped it up in terms of technology, as well.
Inside, the ATS Turbo features Rear Vision Camera, Bose Premium Surround Sound, an enhanced Cadillac infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and advanced smartphone integration and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Turbo Luxury model takes it one step further, adding Cadillac’s integrated GPS navigation system, Front and Rear Park Assist, key fob and smart phone app Adaptive Remote Start, Universal Home Remote, and a 110-volt conventional power outlet.
The Cadillac ATS Turbo offers a lot of nice amenities at the base level like heated mirrors with puddle lamps, keyless entry and ignition, six-way power front seats with power lumbar, leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a 12-speaker Bose sound system and more.
The Luxury, Premium Luxury and Premium Performance trims offer various upgrades depending upon the driver’s preference.
While you might think a more refined look, enhanced technology and streamlined trim levels would put a dent in the wallet of consumers, at $35,590, it’s clear the ATS vehicles will be offering more luxury for less money in 2017.
