It seems that the unbelievable may come to pass as the Cadillac ATS winds up with this year’s launch; it seems that the 2019 Cadillac ATS will be offered only as a coupe as Cadillac has taken the decision to slim the line down due to lacklustre sales from last year.
Either way, we can look forward to a new model to hit the ramps, this year at least and with more than a few changes. If rumours are to be true then the ATS model will be pared down two doors, offered as a coupe, with a sporty look. It certainly got us interested, to check out the new ATS, so let’s get to it, shall we?
2019 Cadillac ATS Overview:
The 2019 Cadillac ATS will be featuring two doors only on its model which means that it will be a two-seater. With the rumour mill going into an overdrive especially when the news of the coupe came out, we had to sift through the lot before we could get enough reliable info for this review. The new model is expected to come with the following trims, standard, luxury, premium luxury and premium performance, with more advanced and additional features being offered for the higher trims.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Cadillac ATS comes with two doors less, and will only be offered as a coupe which is not that surprising seeing that the automaker intends to discontinue this line soon. The new model 2019 Cadillac ATS comes with more or less the same look with very few changes to the exterior; it comes with the same rounded lines and that grille mesh at the front. The only change that we could spot was the lower front bumper. The car still retains its LED headlights along with cornering and the overall design is still a delight to hold even though it has been seven years in the making ever since this model was first introduced.
It should also be pointed out that we did not expect anything radical with the current model given that this line is going to be discontinued soon but that thought that the automaker would at least have opted to go out with a bang instead of a whimper, but that’s just us. All said and done, the ATS coupe still looks a delight and is easy on the eyes, with its flowing lines and is a pleasure to drive around in.
The 2019 Cadillac ATS comes with all the bells and whistles as far as the interior goes but the one let down is that this model offers premium leather seats on the top trims only. Apart from that, the interior of the car comes with an enhanced suspension which should make driving it all the more pleasant.
The new model 2019 Cadillac ATS also comes with a low dashboard, easy to access control and advanced safety features for the top trim models. It sports a minimalistic look on the interior which only draws your attention to the 8-inch infotainment touchscreen system.
Engine Release Date, and Price
The 2019 Cadillac ATS comes with two engines which are offered across the entire ATS line up; it comes with both 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 that makes 272 horsepower and a 335-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine as well.
The car can really move fast and the fact that it comes with stickier tires makes it all the more pleasurable to drive it around. The new model is expected to hit the roads around the third quarter of 2018, in a few weeks. The pricing is expected to range around $36490 and $51390.
