2016 Cadillac ATS-V Orders Now Open, Will Start From $61,4607
Cadillac has priced the 2016 ATS-V sedan from $61,460 and the ATS-V coupe from $63,660 following the model’s debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November. Both the ATS-V sedan and coupe undercut the price of the BMW M3 and two-door M4, which start at $62,950 and $65,150, respectively.
The ATS-V is powered by the segment’s most powerful V6, General Motors’ new 455 horsepower 3.6-liter LF4 six-cylinder. The mill sends power to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission with rev-matching, or an available eight-speed automatic. This enables the ATS-V to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 189 mph, Cadillac claims.
General Motors has yet to release a full pricing and options list for the ATS-V. The high-performance compact already comes well-equipped from the factory with a carbon-fiber hood, Brembo brakes and GM’s third-generation Magnetic Ride Control, however options like the Recaro seats, Performance Data Recorder and aerodynamics package will quickly force the ATS-V out of the $60,000 realm.
Cadillac says customer orders for the ATS-V will open in April. The next-generation 2016 Cadillac CTS-V will also join its little brother in Cadillac showrooms before year’s end, with company president Johan de Nysschen saying the model will arrive this summer.

I was damn close to my original estimate with this news, being over by only $40.

Even though these prices are a bit high for the average joe , I thought the prices were going to be higher . The again these are just the base prices so you can figure getting into one will be closer to 70g’s .
Its a bit like Mercedes commercials stating you could buy a C-class for $29,900 but you would be hard pressed to find one on the lot for that price .
I think you’re confusing the CLA-class with the C-class; two distinct Mercedes models in two separate segments (subcompact and compact).
The 2014 CLA’s were advertised at $29,900, but the 2015’s are $31,500.
The 2015 C-class starts at $38,400, and I doubt that it underwent a nearly $10,000 price jump in a single model year.
The base model for the ATS-V is actually very well equipped, much like the CTS-V’s of the past. To get a similarly equipped BMW or Merc you’re looking at probably around $5k in options.
The price about where it should be.
This is not a car for the average joe nor should it be priced as such this is what the turbo 4 is for.
