The all-new 2015 ATS Coupe is a quicker and more personal addition to the award-winning ATS product line. Designed to be lighter, more agile and more engaging than its competitors.
Cadillac’s first-ever compact luxury Coupe offers drivers the choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and the power from a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.6L six-cylinder. In all combinations, ATS Coupe takes advantage of its lightweight and strong structure to deliver exhilarating performance with efficiency, with a segment-leading power-to-weight ratio.
The 2.0L Turbo engine is upgraded from the current ATS sport sedan to deliver nearly 14 percent more torque, taking it to 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). This gives the standard ATS Coupe an advantage in power and weight over similarly equipped Coupes such as the BMW 428i.
Greater torque means greater pulling power, for a greater feeling of responsiveness at low speeds, and helps the ATS Coupe achieve an estimated 0-96 km/h time of 5.6 seconds.
Elements that contribute to the ATS Coupe’s balanced performance and responsive characteristics include nearly perfect 50/50 weight balance and low centre of gravity, five-link independent rear suspension featuring lightweight, high-strength steel and efficient straight link designs, a multi-link double-pivot MacPherson-strut front suspension with direct-acting stabilizer bar, underbody aerodynamic shields, premium, belt-driven electric variable-effort steering gear from ZF Steering Systems, Brembo front brakes and eighteen-inch aluminum wheels. It is available all-wheel drive.
