According to a report from Motor Trend, the drop-top variant of the highly anticipated Cadillac compact vehicle (internally referred to as to as the ATS) may feature a rag-top convertible cover, rather than going for a classier hard-top approach. Additionally, the report goes on to say that the ATS-V may feature a twin-boosted 3.2L V6, though no power ratings were given.
As far as we know, the Cadillac ATS-V will be sporting a naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 that will produce around 470 horsepower — a power rating that currently outclasses all other compact sport luxury sedan on the market — though it’s unlikely the range-topping ATS will be able to claim that by the time it rolls off the line in 2013. Both engines are capable of fitting, it’s just a matter of what road GM is going to take with its sporty new baby.
