We don't want to say much about this, because you really should just watch the introductory videos for Cadillac ATS vs. The World, a seriously intense videographic effort for the new entry-level luxury challenger. Racer Derek Hill, son of Formula One World Champion Phil Hill, drives the ATS into some of the planet's most taxing conditions, television actor and anthropology buff Ross Thomas rides shotgun, and Jeff Zwart steps out from behind the wheel of his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup to lead the film crew.

Know beforehand, though, that this is about more than a Cadillac – this is National Geographic meets a really long-form Super Bowl commercial with a ladle full of Top Gear thrown in. And these are only some of the highlights. You can check out this big global video series below, with the launch films from Patagonia and Morocco.

      Very beautiful car. This is actually the first american car that I wouldn't mind having instead of a BMW, if I had the money for it. Looking forward to the reviews

      Not enough smokey oversteer.

      I guess the ATS will be sold worldwide unlike past Cadillacs.

      I have high hopes for this car and fully intend to lease a 2.0 turbo stickshift as a daily driver until the ATS-V comes out. I don't have many doubts about the car as I've driven CTS's in the past and like them quite a bit. Besides, if they're gunning for the BMW M3, that V car will be amazing given Cadillac's recent track record matching target BMW M cars performance-wise. This is a great time to be a car guy, my friends!

      Just love this car......the LED vertical lighting is such a nice touch compare to BMW and audi........they look cluttered from a distances until they get closer.....but you will know there is Cadillac coming from the jump

      The car looks great, but I don't particularly like the way the video is directed. It seems very jumpy, with a lot of cuts to different shots. Then again, this is a car website, not a film analysis forum. Therefore, I say hell yes ATS!

        I agree the cutting is ridiculous. I enjoyed the earlier video series quite a bit more, made when the the car was still in camo.

      1. Cadillac is serious about this car. 2. Cadillac wants everyone to know about it. 3. The marketing budget is not insignificant. 4. They are not waiting for the ATS-V to show off the car's handling chops.

        For sure Cadillac is putting in a solid effort with this car, it ain't some market gap filler. Personally, they earned my full respect with these videos once I saw Jeff Zwart filming them. Not big on the drivers though...
