Cadillac Opens Orders for 2016 ATS-V, Production Set for Spring


Cadillac dealers are now accepting orders for the 2016 ATS-V, the brand’s inaugural luxury compact performance car, which will be assembled at the Lansing Grand River plant starting this spring.

“The V-Series is the ultimate expression of Cadillac’s re-ignited product substance and the passion at the core of our brand,” says Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac’s president. “The ATS-V expands the V-Series lineup, bringing a new kind of performance character to Cadillac.”

With starting prices of $61,460 and $63,660, both the sedan and coupe are powered by the Cadillac Twin Turbo engine, which produces 455 horsepower, 445 pound-feet of torque, and a top speed of 189 mph.

Drivers can also utilize the vehicle’s performance data recorder to record high-definition video of their driving experiences on and off a track, enabling sharing on social media.

Consumers can order ATS-Vs now through dealers, and begin specifying their own ATS-V online at in April.
