GM (http://autoblog.com/make/gm) is investing heavily in its Grand River Assembly plant. Recently, the automaker announced it's pouring $190 million (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/27/report-gm-announcing-190m-investment-in-lansing-to-build-ats/) into the Lansing, Michigan facility, and one of the models expected to be built there is the upcoming Cadillac ATS (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/Cadillac+ATS/). The ATS will slot below the CTS (http://autoblog.com/model/cts) and will be built in a range of body-styles. According to GM Inside News, the ATS will first be launched as a sedan, with a coupe and convertible to follow behind. Eventually, a V-Series version will also be produced.

GM Inside News also reports that they have verified a timetable for the release of the ATS variations. The sedan will be released in the fall of 2012, as a 2013 model. Nine months later, a two-door will be made available as a 2014 ATS model. Another nine months after that and a convertible ATS will hit the streets. And of course we'll get to see a 2015 ATS-V as well.

Rumor has it that the ATS will be available with a wide range of engine options, starting with a naturally-aspirated four-cylinder that will be standard, while the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a V6 will also be offered. For the V-Series, it's been said that Cadillac (http://autoblog.com/make/cadillac) will stick with the V8 formula and shove an eight-cylinder unit under the hood of the ATS.

A 2 yr delay for the V makes no sense and is inconsistent with past practice... unless the next-gen V8 program is delayed even more than I thought.
