2013 Cadillac ATS 3.6 AWD

    Review: 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe
    An Anonymous Standout 1414684620

    Cadillac has become a very, very different company since the dawn of the new millenium. Its turn-of-the-century lineup, consisting of staid offerings like the Seville, DeVille and Eldorado, represented the Old Cadillac. These cars were plagued with Old GM quality issues and catered to a more elderly audience. Since the company's Art and Science design ...

    Report: Cadillac toned down ATS Coupe design due to customer feedback [w/poll]
    1409664600

    Automakers always face a difficult decision when it comes to styling their cars. Design them too blandly and nobody will get excited about them. But style them too aggressively and they'll often end up turning off potential buyers. Cadillac, for its part, is no stranger to aggressive design, but when it came to the new ATS Coupe, it elected to tone ...

    A Return To Form 1407254220

    Save for a few years of its century-plus existence, Cadillac has offered its unique brand of American elegance in two-door, fixed-roof bodystyles.

    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.
