The 2019 Cadillac ATS-V represents the fourth year that the ultra high-performance compact will have been on sale since its launch for the 2016 MY. And 2019, the ATS-V is getting a few minor updates and changes.
Discontinuation Of ATS-V Sedan
The 2019 ATS-V deletes the four-door sedan body style as a result of the discontinuation of the ATS Sedan after the 2018 model year. This means that the ATS-V will be offered exclusively as a two-door coupe for the 2019 model year.
Cadillac representatives have previously stated that discontinuing the ATS/ATS-V Sedan gives the GM Lansing Grand River plant an opportunity to retool in order to produce future Cadillac product, such as the upcoming Cadillac CT5.
The 2019 ATS-V also deletes two exterior colors while gaining a single new hue:
- Phantom Gray Metallic
- Vector Blue Metallic
- Wave Metallic (available at extra charge)
Deletion Of LPOs
The 2019 ATS-V also deletes two LPO-level features – the Winter Protection Package and the Vehicle Cover.
LPO stands for Limited Production Option, and can be selected with a vehicle order and then installed by the dealer. The item can also be purchased by a customer at the dealer as an accessory.
Deletion Of ATS-V Championship Edition
The last change to the 2019 Cadillac ATS-V is the deletion of the ATS-V Championship Edition package. Introduced for the 2018 ATS-V to celebrate Cadillac’s wins in the IMSA racing league, the package included:
- Jet Black with Morello Red accents exterior color
- 18″ x 9″ front and 18″ x 9.5″ rear polished face forged alloy wheels
- Black chrome grille
- Black chrome rear trim (LPO)
- Red Brembo calipers
And that does it for the changes and updates for the 2019 Cadillac ATS-V… or shall we say the 2019 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe.
