    Saw this exact color and trim car driving in Chicago the other day and it looks great in person. Issue...rims look ugly, one tail pipe, and no fogs just plastic!

    Should have gone with the Tuscan Bronze like they did with the CTS:

    This looks like a shade of brown that sort of resembles a paper grocery bag. I'm not expecting a lot of these to be ordered in that color. I think Cadillac is experimenting.
    A friend described it as 'Werthers Original'. Lol, fitting.

    I love the look of the ATS but that STD ATS in gold with the gold interior looks aweful! I'm sure it would look great on a old Chrysler K car that my grandfather would own but on a 40 thousand dollar performance sedan it looks terrible.

    They discontinued Summer Gold and I am very angry about it. Who do I need to speak to?

    I would contact someone in Cadillac Customer Service. While your talking to them please thank them for getting rid of that color so quickly. Also ask them to never use it again.

    If you still want one in that color, call around to dealers or check the online dealer sites. My Caddy dealer had two Luxury ATS in the gold on the lot for about 9 months and couldn't sell them. Every now and then they ran an unbelievable "special" on some cars including the gold ones, but still couldn't get rid of them. I was tempted to make them an offer they couldn't refuse, but in the end, I couldn't bring myself to do it.

    Cadillac Gold looks like money. I like the color a lot. I will have to buy a 2013 ATS gold, you are right they don't seem to be popular, so I can get a better deal. There is Luxury 2.5 for $26,500 with just 13,000 miles. It is a collectors item, not like silver. Every ATS on the road is black or silver.

    Gold was discontinued because it was unpopular in the eyes of the consumer.
    Imagine the interest the dealer paid out in the 9 months he had to hold those 2 he had in stock.
    I doubt he would want more of that color being shipped to him.
    Most gold colors had their peak selling years flatten out by the mid 2000's
    Today it's all about black, silver and pearl white. Light blue is making a comeback here in the Northeast. Metallic red is popular with fleet customers but our retail customers shy away from it our conservative New England market.

    Theirs a reason those colors are popular, White/silver/Black all look slick on a Cadillac, Theirs songs written about BlackCadillacs lol, and I'm sorry when my car is freshly washed/polished and waxed there isn't a colour in the world I'd rather have.

    Gold Cadillacs tend to keep their value. It was preferred many years ago to silver, which looked "cheap" in comparison.

    Black is the best color for a car as long as you like spending two hours every third day polishing it.
