2016 Cadillac ATS-V Actually Makes 464 HP


It turns out the Cadillac ATS-V makes more power than initially announced. 

The hot-version of the ATS makes 464 hp thanks to its twin-turbo V6 engine, 9 more ponies than the initial estimate of 455 hp. Torque output remains the same at 445 lb-ft.

Thanks to the jump in power, the car’s statistics have also changed. The sprint to 60 mph now happens in 3.8 seconds as opposed to 3.9, while top speed has improved to 189 mph, compared to the previously announced 185 mph limit. These stats apply to cars equipped with the eight-speed automatic transmission rather than the available six-speed manual.

All of the other elements are in place to make this a great trackday car, namely Brembo brakes, lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels, adaptive suspension, Michelin Pilot Super Sport and more.

Think they have the balance right. In the past it was too chiseled and straight lined. Now they have massaged some of the straight lines and edges, but it is still sharp and very caddie. Now with the power to go with it. No need for a V8, but just hope this is has a nice dramatic bellow of an exhaust note. Is the new auto box any good (fast up, fast down), am sure the reviewers will be testing and telling.
