2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe Video, First Look

Cadillac is expanding its lineup with an all-new version of the ATS that sports two fewer doors, unveiling the ATS Coupe at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. 

Only two engines will be available in the ATS Coupe, either a 2.0-liter turbo four cylinder that makes 272 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, or a larger 3.6-liter V6 that puts out 321 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission can be had with the smaller engine, though AWD models make due with only the auto. The larger engine option is limited to the automatic transmission as well.

Offering close to 50/50 weight distribution, the ATS Coupe is also available with GM’s Magnetic Ride Control, a mechanical limited-slip differential, high-capacity engine cooling system and staggered 18-inch summer-performance tires.

Interior features include OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with built-in WiFi, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity with natural voice recognition and text-to-voice that can read incoming text messages to the driver.

    $65k for a loaded Tahoe? Wow Range Rover anyone…

    Truck and SUV pricing has hit the stratosphere… it’s ridiculous…

    The worst enemy of this segment, is the manufacturer, By refusing to built them to their longtime customers and users, the hard headed merchandising group that are refusing to install a decent diesel engine in this type of vehicle, it’s really a nonsense to drive these vehicle with a gas engine, it simply not logical, in the era that we live in this type of vehicle is needed to tow and a although a gas engine will do the job to a certain point, but never as a diesel engine would. All your longtime loyal suburban owners, that have been waiting since 1999 are left disappointed by you the manufacturer that is refusing to engineer a clean medium size diesel engine, 560 lbs of torque. That is what is needed. It’s your deaf ears that is responsible for the lost of sales. We are being forced to the German manufacturers and the European owned american company that is proposing the clean and silent diesel engine.Keep up this deaf ear attitude and you will slowly and surely kill this segment, then you will not only loose the sale of these SUVs but the loyal longtime owners that in a large percentage are also car owners

    What happened to the best in segment fuel mileage that the Silverado gets. Something must have gotten lost in the platform change into a SUV obviously. Surely the GENERAL can produce something with better mileage than this,

    I agree with you that small displacement inline 6 diesel engines are the most ideal for this segment. I also believe that most people who purchase such as large truck generally plan to put it to work and with the price of fuel continuing to escalate, a Diesel engine that adds 4 to 5 mpg over its gas counterpart will be a plus not to mention the towing capacity. The problem for diesel right now is that the some of the subsidies that once made diesel ideal for big commercial businesses is going away. Thus the price of diesel will rise in the future. So, if you pay a premium for a Diesel Tahoe and wind up paying more for fuel as well, the added benefit of a Diesel just went Kaput. This is why commercial companies are looking at CNG because of the the subsidies that now exist. Natural gas right now is going for about $1.25 /gallon but the infrastructure does not yet exist to support large scale operations at least not in Texas not to mention the Trucks cost more, have less power and don’t last as long. And when the subsidies go away for CNG like they did for ethanol, fuel prices will again will be an issue. But I digress,

    Eventually the manufacturer’s will definitely deploy the engine that you and others seek “Build it and they will come!” But will the premium for such an option be palatable. Would you pay $70k plus for a “Diesel” Tahoe, Expedition or Durango and also pay more at the pump for the privilege?

    Beyond the fuel economy aspects it would be nice to have a configuration like this that could realistically tow something. Despite the 8K tow capacity of the 5.3, I’m nearly certain the powertrain would stall out and die trying to pull a 5k boat around on anything less flat than KS. I always chuckle at the number of bass boats and such creeping up the hills at 40 MPH behind 1/2 ton class gassers from any MFG. In 2010 I gave up on GM/FORD to build the diesel I wanted and bought a new Mercedes with a diesel 6. I’ve never had a vehicle in the shop as much as this one. Despite the fact that the warranty covered most of the issues it was insane to have a new $65K+ machine constantly in the shop. At 2 years in and 50,200 miles the Turbo exploded and ruined the engine. Mercedes told me tough luck. I’ll never buy another one and want the world to know the terrible quality and customer service that Mercedes is pushing at a premium to the market. Until someone builds a real 7 passenger hauler, I’ll be in my 04 chevy 2500 diesel with the 2014 Honda Van close behind.

    Nope. But I did buy a 2012 Infiniti QX56 (now badged as a QX80) instead of the 2012 Tahoe LTZ. At that time the base model QX had tons more features than the “loaded” LTZ and the price was the same. Actually when you factor in the extra 8k Infiniti allowed me on the trade in of our 2008 Tahoe LTZ I saved almost 10k buying the Infiniti. Haven’t and won’t look back. Almost 9k towing capacity. 402 hp. AWD and a realized 17 mpg with me driving the wheels off of it are just icing on the cake to go with the Class IV hitch that is standard. Easily the most underrated full size suv on the market.
