Right now, it looks like the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V may be one of the best performance bargains on the market. CarBuzz did some quick searching and found some ATS-Vs have been marked down by up to $20,000 at some dealerships.
The MSRP for a Cadillac ATS-V starts at around $61,000, but dealer searches showed most ATS-Vs sitting in inventory had MSRPs of over $70,000. Those same vehicles had been marked down to around $55,000. In particular, one 2016 ATS-V coupe was marked down to $56,740 from its MSRP of $76,440. That’s a screaming deal.
It begs the question: are dealers not able to sell Cadillac’s M3/M4 rival? Or, are dealers simply making room for the 2017 Cadillac ATS-V variants? Cadillac sales have been fairly stagnant overall and no new product is arriving during 2017 to help boost dealership traffic. It’s hard to sell performance cars when there isn’t any new buzz for a dealer in general.
The ATS-V has been praised for its sublime driving dynamics and chassis, despite being a tad chincy regarding overall luxury features. The ATS-V is a sports car first and foremost.
