For the ultimate expression of Cadillac performance in a street-legal and track-ready sports sedan, turn to the 2017 Cadillac ATS-V Sedan. Building upon the lightweight and rigid chassis of Cadillac's luxurious ATS Sedan, the new ATS-V Sedan delivers staggering performance in the straights and the corners thanks to a multitude of high-performance upgrades. If you are searching for a sports sedan that can reach 60 mph from zero in under four seconds, you have found it in the 2017 ATS-V Sedan. Perhaps best of all, the new ATS-V Sedan from Cadillac is surprisingly affordable, given its exceptional performance capabilities. Learn more about this high-performance Cadillac, then explore one for yourself with a test drive.
The proper place to start with any Cadillac performance vehicle is under the hood. Equipped with a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, the 2017 ATS-V Sedan will excite any driver with its 464 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque. That level of power is enough for a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 189 mph! Of course, the high-performance capabilities of the new ATS-V Sedan go well beyond its horsepower and torque. Cadillac engineered the new ATS-V Sedan for speed, braking and cornering performance. The standard 6-speed manual gearbox provides crisp power delivery with shifting on-demand. The 8-speed automatic transmission also offers shifting on-demand through its magnesium paddle shifters. With Launch Control, the Traction Control, transmission and other systems are optimized for immediate acceleration off the line. From its upgrade cooling system to its Brembo high-performance brakes and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, everything about the 2017 Cadillac ATS-V Sedan is designed to maximize performance. Even its suspension system -- equipped with Magnetic Ride Control -- had been tuned, reacting to the road up to 1,000 times per second.
What happens when you take the sculpted and aggressive lines of the standard ATS Sedan and carve it with accentuated lines and aero parts? You get the mean look of the 2017 ATS-V Sedan, of course. The design of the ATS-V Sedan is highly functional, featuring scoops and vents that help this performance sedan remain cool and well fed with fresh air. Exterior design and performance highlights of Cadillac's super sports sedan include its carbon fiber hood, forged alloy wheels, front aero splitter, quad exhaust tips and stunning mesh grille.
Just like the standard ATS, the 2017 ATS-V Sedan features a rich cabin in luxurious Cadillac fashion. Of course, there are a large number of upgrades and updates, too, including available Recaro performance seats with 16-way adjustment and heavy side bolsters. Four drive modes (Tour, Sport, Track and Snow/Ice) deliver customized and calibrated driving modes to suit any road conditions or driving style.
