Cadillac ATS and CTS 2017 Receive Design and Technology Updates


Cadillac’s ATS and CTS model lines will receive updates for 2017, including new trim levels, design features, and technology.

The 2017 ATS and CTS models will also receive a sport package, which include two new exterior colors and new wheels, and updated infotainment centers.

The new trim levels for Cadillac ATS sedans and coupes include: ATS, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Premium Performance. The trim levels for the 2017 Cadillac CTS sedans include: CTS, Luxury, Premium Luxury, V-Sport, and Cadillac entries.

David Caldwell, product communications manager at Cadillac, says the 2017 Cadillac ATS Turbo Sedan will be the entry model among Cadillac ATS Sedans and Coupes.

In addition to featuring updated technologies including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the ATS class will include Cadillac User Experience, a smartphone-inspired dashboard screen with 3-D GPS navigation system, voice recognition, weather reports, Bluetooth connectivity, Pandora radio streaming, and proximity-sensing technology.

“Our approach is very design-centric to make the user experience look and feel in a way that expresses Cadillac’s sport model,” Caldwell says. “The goal is to empower the car to take control of the things that people rely on their phones for.”

The 2017 ATS class will offer a two-liter, four-cylinder turbo engine as the new standard for the class.

The 2017 Cadillac CTS features a new design for the front grille and a new rear fascia with vertical exhaust orientation and updates to the valance panel.

Rear Camera Mirror, Cadillac’s first full-display rearview mirror technology, will also be available in CTS 2017 models.
