    2014 ATS Release?

    Hey guys, brand new to the forum. I am set on buying an ATS 2.0 or 3.6, have not decided just yet on which one, but I want to wait until the 2014 model comes out so I can negotiate a better price on a 2013. I have searched but found no information on the 2014 sedan. There is some information on the coupe, but nothing on the Sedan. Any news or ideas on when the 2014 model Sedan will be released this year? Thanks.

    I posted the changes. Shouldn't be hard to find the thread. The differences are minimal. Color changes, a thicker steering wheel, HIDs as an option for Luxury trim, not much else.

    You can order now. I think 2014 production starts in June or July.

    My guess is more Sept/Oct.

    I've never found any point at which the cars are more negotiable. As the model year goes on, you can get lower and lower prices because the cars are closer to being last year's model.

    The only risk you take is that the color, engine, or features that you want will not be available if you wait too long. Keep looking at your dealer's web site to make sure what you want is still being stocked in good numbers.

    I have my eye on a "Gold mist" ATS that has been on my dealer's lot for about four months. Nobody wants this color. At some point, I may make him an offer he can't refuse.

    Essentially, the time they spend on the lot is the determining factor in which a car starts to be more 'negotiable'

    See, as you may or may not know, Cadillac doesn't count a 'sale' as you purchasing the car, they count it as the dealer accepting delivery (and loan payments) of the vehicle when it gets dropped on their lot.

    While there's some value in saying a 2014 may bring more money than a 2013 even though they're both 'new' cars, the overwhelming factor is the fact that the 2013 models have been on the lot for a lot longer than the new model cars. It's costing the dealer money to keep it there, money they'd rather be spending on a current MY vehicle to have on the lot.

    I am planning on getting a used 2013 model. Waiting till the 2014 model comes out should help lower the price right?

    Yes, but there isn't ever much selection of 1 year old used cars, particularly the good models. But it's been a crazy world lately. Near new used car prices are at historic highs because of the dearth of leases a few years back.

    Hi All,

    It is always an exciting time when a new vehicle is about to begin production. The 2014 ATS production starts mid June! Start up to Dealer Lots is approximately 6-8 weeks. This time can vary based upon the launch strategy and geographic location of the customer to the plant. Dealer/Customer Order to Dealer lot is approximately 6-12 weeks. Some variables that may affect time include: Availability of Vehicle Options-some are designated as late availability, Transport Distance, and Production Sequencing (Order of Build.) Check with your Dealer for specific timing. I hope this helps!

    Sincerely,

    Laura M.
