With the ATX-V sports model, Cadillac is attacking the BMW M3 and the upcoming Mercedes C63 AMG. The Cadillac storms with a twin-turbo V6 and 450 PS to attack the establishment. The fourth premium brand wants to be in Europe, as a rough sled in the segment of C-Class and BMW 3 is simply one.
Cadillac ATS-V - attack on M3 and AMG
The 3.6 liter V6 is known from the CTS, in the ATS-V he gets titanium connecting rods, new turbochargers and a revised injection and engine control. Coupled is the V6 turbo with a manual six-speed gearbox or an 8 automatic gearbox from GM. Variable damper technology with the Cadillac Magnetic Ride System and fat Brembo pliers should ensure that you as the driver keeps the potent cargo under control.
Even if the ATS-V in Detroit had a stronger and bigger brother, for me the “small” ATS-V with V6 turbo and cracker optics is one of the absolute highlights in Detroit 2015.
