ATS-V to get a 425 HP TT-V6 instead of a V8

Jan 16, 2014 - 11:03 PM - by gohawks63
I know this is the CTS-V forum, but this is V related.

I read an article yesterday that said that there was the possibility that the ATS-V might get a V8. Doesn't look like it now.

Cadillac News: Cadillac chief says ATS convertible, wagon on the table

Filed under: Detroit Auto Show, Convertible, Coupe, Wagon, Cadillac, Luxury


What we do know is that the ATS will wear at least one more bodystyle. That comes from Cadillac head Bob Ferguson, who answered "Absolutely" when Automotive News asked him about the possibility of another variant. What we don't know is what that bodystyle or styles will be.

We now have a sedan and coupe ATS, there's supposedly a V sedan coming. After that, a convertible is a likely option given that the man who just became the global product honcho at General Motors, Mark Reuss, admitted to having one already designed in 2012. The decision on it can't get out of the underworld and a wagon is the other option, but the droptop would seem to make the most sense if one considers the competitive set: the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5 convertibles are hot property and Mercedes is bringing a C-Class convertible. Meanwhile wagons are the sentimental utility vehicles that, refusing to die, seem forever destined for life support... CTS Sport Wagon, anyone?

Based on Ferguson's statements, it appears that what Cadillac definitely won't do is play model variant catch-up with the European luxury brands it has spent years hunting down, telling Automotive News, "We want to keep our focus on a limited number of vehicles and do them very well."Cadillac chief says ATS convertible, wagon on the table originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 15 Jan 2014 10:29:00 EST.

V-3 engine package????

Jan 14, 2014 - 5:45 PM - by Mikevette
Guys

Now with the release of the 2015 corvette Zo6 with the LT4 engine that has the Eaton 1.7ish blower on top making 625hp's. I'm wondering if GM is going to put a de-tuned LT4 in the new V?? 600hp would be nice, but hell with minor mods we can have the 650-700 V package that several vender offer for a lot less money!

Cadillac News: 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe prepares to fight BMW 4 Series

Jan 14, 2014 - 1:10 PM - by Cadillac Forum
Filed under: Detroit Auto Show, Coupe, Cadillac, Luxury


Cadillac introduced its new ATS Coupe at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show today, bringing customers an alternative to the growing range of sport luxury coupes typified by the BMW 4 Series, Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe.

The ATS Coupe, as a slightly more premium offering, ditches the wheezy 2.5-liter engine found in the basic ATS Sedan, but retains the four-door's 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder and 3.6-liter V6. That four-pot turbo benefits from a fettling that has increased torque from 260 pound-feet to 295, although its peak is only available from 3,000 rpm to 4,600 rpm, unlike in the sedan, where peak twist arrives at just 1,700 rpm and sticks around until 5,500 rpm.

Power can be channeled to either the rear or all four wheels by the owner's choice of a Tremec six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. According to Cadillac, the new Coupe can get to 60 in 5.6 seconds when fitted with the 2.0-liter turbo.

Our photographers were on hand for the official reveal and have provided a full gallery of live images from the floor of Cobo Hall in Detroit. We also included the official press release and photo gallery for the ATS Coupe below.Continue reading 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe prepares to fight BMW 4 Series

Cadillac News: 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe favors cleanliness over radical lines

Jan 14, 2014 - 12:20 AM - by Cadillac Forum
Filed under: Detroit Auto Show, Coupe, Cadillac, Luxury


Though you might not know it from looking at vehicles like the XTS and Escalade, if you take a broader look at history, you'll see that Cadillac models have gotten a lot smaller from the tail-finned highway cruisers of old. At least when it comes to coupes, anyway. The Eldorado, in particular, kept getting smaller until it disappeared, its place taken in recent years by decidedly more compact XLR, CTS Coupe and ELR hybrid. What you see here, however, is Cadillac's smallest coupe yet.

Revealed today at the Detroit Auto Show is the new 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe, the brand's first compact two-door coupe, and the first production car to wear the brand's all-new crest. It shares the same platform and wheelbase as the existing ATS sedan, but packs a wider track and unique bodywork that's decidedly more conservative and less unique in its angular styling than the CTS Coupe that it's likely to ultimately displace in the Cadillac lineup. Styling aside, the all-American luxury marque has engineered the ATS Coupe with a focus on reducing weight to the benefit of both performance and fuel economy, giving it near 50/50 weight balance front to rear with underbody aerodynamic elements helping it cheat the wind.
Buyers will be able to choose between two engines: a 2.0-liter turbo four and a 3.6-liter V6.

Based on this morning's Z06 reveal...

Jan 13, 2014 - 11:19 AM - by Jinx
...which says customers won't get cars until "early next year" I'd say anyone looking to buy a V3 is in for a long wait.

The eight-speed auto "about 4 kilograms lighter than the six speed" was an interesting tidbit, as was a smaller but faster-spinning blower than the LS9. Of course, some V2 owners already have experience with faster-spinning blowers...

---
So settle in, boys and girls, it looks like V2 is still top of the Cadillac performance heap for another year or so.

Detroit: what will Cadillac reveal?

Jan 06, 2014 - 4:35 PM - by Jinx
Will they reveal anything new? Or will they wait until New York like they did last year?

The ATS-V should be up next, but BMW is doing the official M3/M4 reveal at Detroit -- does Cadillac compete for attention head-on or do they wait for their own spotlight?

Would they really reveal the CTS-V before the ATS-V? I never thought so before, but maybe that makes more sense now -- the Germans are all on their next-gen product already.

They wouldn't have another show car already, would they?

Is the next-gen SRX ready yet?

Cadillac News: Cadillac reveals more 2015 Escalade details, launches colorizer

Dec 30, 2013 - 7:10 PM - by Cadillac Forum
Filed under: SUV, Etc., Cadillac, Design/Style, Luxury


Cadillac has opened up a mini-site to entice you into its all-new 2015 Escalade, and begun talking about more of its features and trim levels. While all versions of the new daddy Caddy will be powered by a 6.2-liter V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque routed through a six-speed automatic, there will be three trim packages you can wrap around that powertrain and seven exterior colors available to make it pop.

Features common to all trims include leather throughout, heated and cooled front seats, a 12-inch reconfigurable dash cluster, a quieter interior thanks to Bose active noise cancellation and the brand's love/hate CUE infotainment system. The base trim comes with adaptive remote start, hands-free tailgate, rear-view camera, park assist, Magnetic Ride Control and sits on 20-inch wheels. Moving up to the Luxury spec increases your stature with 22-inch wheels and adds a reconfigurable, color head-up display, a sunroof, power fold-and-tumble second row seating, Intellibeam headlights and a Driver Awareness Package with active crash-avoidance technology like Safety Alert Seat, lane departure warning and forward collision alert.

The top Premium trim gets a Driver Assist Package that includes Automatic Collision Preparation, automatic braking and adaptive cruise control, rear-seat entertainment, along with exterior touches like illuminated door handles.

You can paint any Escalade in Dark Granite Metallic, Radiant Silver Metallic, Black Raven, White Diamond Tricoat, Silver Coast Metallic, Crystal Red Tintcoat or Majestic Plum Metallic, but the base model's interior can only be had in Jet Black with Jet Black Accents. With more money comes more possibilities, though: Kona Brown with Jet Black Accents and Shale with Cocoa Accents are available on the Luxury and Premium grades. You can discover and play around with the possibilities just one click away from here.Cadillac reveals more 2015 Escalade details, launches colorizer originally... [Read More]

Cadillac News: GM design boss Welburn says Lincoln isn't a Cadillac rival [w/poll]

Dec 05, 2013 - 9:40 AM - by Cadillac Forum
Filed under: Cadillac, GM, Lincoln, Design/Style


General Motors Vice President of Global Design, Ed Welburn, had some dismissive words for a certain cross-town luxury brand during an interview with Car and Driver. When asked about his thoughts on Lincoln, Welburn deflected, before saying, "I don't consider Lincoln to be a competitor for Cadillac."

"They're not a global luxury brand. I don't consider them a competitor. Are they a competitor for Buick? Quite possibly. But not for Cadillac," GM's head designer explained. Welburn, who's been at the helm of GM Design North America since 2003 and is the first to hold the position of VP of Global Design, has been instrumental in the styling renaissance at GM, so predictably, Car and Driver's interview with him focused on the design aspect of cars.

During the interview, Welburn explicitly denied plans for a reborn Cadillac XLR, even as a new Chevrolet Corvette is hitting the market and strides are being made with Cadillac's V-Series performance arm saying, "We have a lot of cars that we're working on for the Cadillac brand. The XLR is not one of them right now."

Predictably, there was also talk of the gorgeous Elmiraj Concept. "I think Cadillac needs to be a full-line luxury brand. There are categories that we don't participate in, presently, that we will in the future," Welburn said. "We have more vehicles under development today than at any other time in the history of the brand. But I'm not going to tell you which ones we're going to do. There's a lot that we're working on. And we're certainly looking at that [points to the Elmiraj] for production."
