Cadillac has made the 2017 Cadillac ATS sedan and coupes’ changes official. The brand has announced a slew of changes and updates to the ATS, the biggest being an all-new trim level hierarchy.
Along with the new trims, Cadillac has waved goodbye to the 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated, four-cylinder engine, and replaced the outgoing base model with the 2017 ATS Turbo. The 2.0-liter LTG turbo-four makes the ATS the most powerful turbocharged sedan in its class.
Following the 2017 Cadillac CTS, the ATS trims also now fall in line with the 2016 Cadillac CT6 and 2017 Cadillac XT5. The ATS arrives in ATS, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Premium Performance; the ATS-V series continues on unchanged from 2017. Additional equipment helps boost the value per dollar in the ATS, including new standard technologies like the myCadillac Mobile App, Teen Driver and Cadillac Collection.
Two new, unnamed colors join the 2017 ATS’ palette for the model year, and a new wheel design to keep things fresh. Additionally, a Carbon Black sport package will be offered for the 2017 model year.
