Cadillac is apparently preparing to roll out a minor facelift for the ATS sedan – which we know not because General Motors has already revealed it or because we're looking at it in a fresh batch of spy shots (though we've seen that too), but because a behind-the-scenes video from the filming of its commercial has leaked out online. Which may be bad news for Cadillac, and even worse news for the film production company, but good news for us, because we get to see it ahead of schedule.

The revised sports sedan seems to be sporting a new front bumper and less egg-cratey grille with Caddy's new wreath-less badge at its center, all apparently put in place to bring the sedan more in line with the new ATS coupe.

We're sure Cadillac will be revealing the updated 2015 ATS sedan shortly, but you can scope it out right now in the video below. By way of comparison, we've included an image gallery of the current ATS, released back in 2013, as well.

      One thing I hate about cadillac's marketing agency is that whenever they film the ATS....they always use the base model without any LED treatment.........show the best car you can in your commercials !

      PLEASE bring back the WREATH Cadillac logo. The new one simply doesn't work for me. Also, I prefer the front end styling of the 2013/2014 ATS sedan. Should have left the 2015 ATS alone and let the coupe have the unique front styling.

      New front end is a improvement, the previous grill already seemed out dated. But, horrible video and whats with the photo shopped HIDs? Did a 16 year old kid make this video, and what target market is this video supposed to arouse?

      Looks like im in minority group that likes the new nose and logo better. I prefer the vertical light pipes of the upper trims though with the 15 bumper, looks like they shot the commercial with a base model.

      BMW don't let you alone,you get a sporty good looking and better build car,Audi have a reputation made out of all wheel drive and the elegant and best build interiors and Mercedes give you prestige and admiration all over the world but a Cadillacs? The only. On recall this days is for the cars build by either Daewoo or Opel and soon this brand is going to be lost ,look at the $80 k XRL this days,a lame memories of how lame a car could be!

        Try English next time and choose a better name too. Any guy actually named Roger Smith should be speaking perfect English.

      Why bother - it isn't any different - it is just as over priced and cramped as the 2014 model - anyone who buys one of these is an idiot - you'd have better performance and more interior room buying that whale Camaro.

        You heard it here first. Revis Laser is recommending the Camaro.

        Actually I know someone who has a 2013 model and I ride in it quite frequently. It is a really nice car. It handles really well. He has the 2.5 engine which still has a lot of pep for it being the base engine. It's a really nice looking car inside and out.

      So we're not supposed to noticed the sweet Mercedes camera SUV? For all the effort to black it out wouldn't you just put the camera equipment on a new Escalade? 2 birds.

        Well GM were actually filming the commercial that would make sense, but they're not.

        The Mercedes is owned by a Russian camera company, this ML has been used in many commercials; from different automobile companies and in the movies i.e. a lot of movies with chase scenes. But, GM could of choose camera angles with out the Benz; also would be quite an expense to design their own mounts and camera to go on top of the Escalade.

      The styling is anonymous. Never realized how much "that" crest around the logo actually gave the car character.

      meh.... That rear looks fat (obese)...This isn't anywhere near sporty. It's looks like a grandpa's old caddie.. Competion for the Euro offerings. Lol... Maybe for folks that what to try to compare 0-60 times on the back cover of MT/CD.... That's about it. Fail.

        No idea how you view the rear-end as "obese", or the entire car as "grandpa's old Caddie", but it sounds like a desperate attempt to trivialize the design by using false references, which I presume you think gives your opinion leverage when in actuality, it simply makes you appear blind. Your comment regarding it being uncompetitive with the Germans isn't even worth responding to any further than I already have... You FAIL.

      Park this next to an M-sport 328i, the dated but refreshed A4 S-line, the even more dated C-class, the IS350 Fsport, and then stand back. You'll see 4 reasonably attractive designs and one bland breadloaf park next to them. Worse yet, the 90's gauge cluster on the inside plus seriously cramped back seats. Even worse than that, this pseudo sport sedan offers up a great chassis only to then pair it with with one of the buzziest, worst sounding and underpowered 4 turbos or a heavy, untuned, v6 with an automatic only? Cadillac lovers be as defensive as you will, but there is a reason that they are struggling to sell cars now. Cadillac should never had entered BMW's arena but should've stayed focused and lead the market on making the most stately and comfortable luxury cars in the world.
