2014 Cadillac ATS Luxury Sedan: Complete Details

The 2014 iteration of Cadillac’s luxury sport sedan, the ATS, is claimed to give a cut throat competition to some of the world’s best premium cars when it comes to offering a perfect balance of performance and refinement and a host of new features including Intellibeam automatic high-beam control, a rear 110-volt power outlet, frameless inside rearview mirror, leather-wrapped, larger-diameter sport steering wheel, new exterior colors and a range of dealer-available accessories.

The car is offered as a well equipped standard model along with Luxury, Performance and Premium trims. The engine lineup is vast enough and comprises two four cylinder units and a performance-oriented V6 for North America. Optional engines include Cadillac’s award-winning 2.0L Turbo which produces 272 hp and the 3.6 liter V6 capable of generating 321 hp.

For customers who wanted a few more color options on the ATS, Cadillac has added four new options: Phantom Gray Metallic, Mocha Steel Metallic, Majestic Plum Metallic and Red Obsession Tintcoat. That is not all as the 2014 ATS will also be available with a range of dealer-available accessories including 19-inch ultra-bright machined-finish aluminum wheels, an aluminum sport pedal set, 19-inch gloss black aluminum wheels, 19-inch Y-rated summer tires, 19-inch Manoogian premium painted wheels, black chrome rear applique trim and black chrome-accented sport grille.
