The Cadillac ATS was first debuted back in 2013 and has been super popular ever since; it seems that customers just can’t get enough and eagerly await the new version for 2018.
This next version has taken luxury and quality to another level, at least for Cadillac. The ATS is Caddy’s best-selling model. Ever.
And it really is no surprise, especially when you look at what Caddy have in store for the 2018 model.
2018 Cadillac ATS Release date
Cadillac have released some details regarding the new 2018 Cadillac ATS, mainly to keep the publicity machine churning and buyers in anticipation, but no actual date has been released.
We think that Caddy will announce the release date in the mid part of 2017, with sales happening toward the end of 2017.
2018 Cadillac ATS release date: late 2017
2018 Cadillac ATS Price
For such a luxurious vehicle, the pricing is very competitive. We think the base model will come in at around the $38,000 mark, while the loaded high spec version will probably just nudge the $50,000 price bracket.

2018 Cadillac ATS Redesign and changes
The Cadillac ATS is all over technology, equipment and features; from the underbody aero aids to help stability and reduce lift at speeds to the active aero shutters fitted behind the front grille which close under certain conditions to improve aerodynamic flow – a lot of thought and innovation has gone in to this model.
Expect the usual things like full LED daytime running lights and xenon headlamps in the lighting department, but there will also be an option for a xenon High Intensity Discharge system featuring active forward illumination (meaning that the headlamps swivel to the direction of the corner).
There is also accent lighting on the door handles and interior ambient lighting to show of the cabin in all of its glory.
2018 Cadillac ATS Specs
Speaking of the cabin, it will be the most luxurious offering from Caddy yet; full of high quality leather upholstery, carbon fiber (where specced), aluminum and exotic wood accents.
Under the hood will be a new 2.0 liter turbo gas engine, pushing out 272 BHP and a smooth 3.6 liter V6 with 321 BHP, although there is also talk of a 2.5 liter direct injection 4-cylinder motor also. All motors will run through a 6-speed transmission, manual being standard but there is no chance that Cadillac won’t offer an auto, especially in such a luxury car – who wants to go to the effort of having to change gear manually?
