Also the lot is full of loaners cars with 2,000 to 4,000 miles that are on sale with good prices and incentives that can be leased or brought. So come off the high chair. A friend of mine just picked up a 328ix Black leather, 36 month $415 a month sign and drive, taxes/reg up front bank fee in loan.

The fact of the matter is the ATS will lease at a higher price than many 3 series because the incentives will be lower on the ATS. Great job GM.
    The fact is the car's not avaliable for sale, we have no idea what it will lease for. The fact is, the 3 series has a 60% take on lease rates, GM knows this and knows leasing is a big point of interest for luxury cars, they also know the ATS has various selli
    ng points that posistion it as a better car than the 3 series. They *also* know that they're introducting a brand new vehicle against a model refresh, so there's going to be a lot more interested new comers in their car than a someone who just wants to fall back on the 3 series.

    All this speculative nonsense is pointless.

    This is not speculation but fact. GM new cars have low incentives. Look at the XTS and SRX, there are no $6,000 plus incentives. Now look at the BMW 3,5 and 7 lots of cash on the hood, dealer cash, option cash and lease cash, thats a fact. There will be no $6,000 dollar hood cash on the 2013 ATS,XTS or SRX. Also when the next gen CTS and Esc SUV come out next year their incentives will also fall in line.
    I saw two ladies pushing to get into a XTS yesterday, the person who lost went and put a deposit down on the spot, that was something to see. Great job GM.

    It's a brand new model that has created international "buzz" from the motor press as well as regular news outlet raves That's all the incentive GM could ever dream of fit a ground up new model I'm sure a year or so from now the deals will get better.

    High incentives go along with cars of low desirability .. Cadillac/GM has been doing a brilliant job of creating cars that people really want. Cadillac V Coupe, Buick Enclave, Chevy Cruz. Just wait for the C7 Corvette. Dealers will probably get a premium fir first year runs. Point is, if a car had the wow factor you don't need incentives to cheapen the brand.

    BMW has become a "Honda" in terms of uniqueness Cadillac has been making the most
    Unique , original cars since the intro of the first gen CTS.

    I think GM and Ford have all the exciting new cars out there. The Germans and Japanese just seem to be visually refreshing the same cars from a decade ago.
