One of the most hotly anticipated cars from the new General Motors is the 2013 Cadillac ATS, and it has just been priced from $33,990 including destination charges.
The based model ATS has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission will help achieve over 30 mpg on the highway, though EPA numbers have not been released yet.
Stepping up to the mid-level ATS with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 270 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque will cost $35,795 including destination charges. This model will be available with a six-speed automatic transmission and a six-speed manual transmission, along with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. Cadillac is saying this will be the model enthusiasts are more interested in.
The range topping model will have a 3.6-liter V-6 with 320 horsepower and will cost $42,090 including destination. That price includes a six-speed automatic transmission an Cadillac's new CUE infotainment system, leather, 8-way memory power seats, and adaptive start. All-wheel drive will be available with this engine.
The ATS is based on an all-new lightweight rear-wheel drive platform with a curb weight of less than 3,400 pounds. This will make the 2013 ATS the lightest vehicle in its class.
Cadillac is hoping the ATS will challenge the class leading BMW 3-Series with a combination of nimble handling, and fuel efficient engine options.
