2013 CADILLAC ATS 2.5-Liter/ 3.6-liter REVIEW and XTS comparison
The ATS is sexy, big enough for me to drive and will comfortably fit a small family. However, this car really doesn't make sense when what GM should have put forth was a slightly larger CTS. The upcoming CTS will be bigger, but will likely be more expensive. considering this base ATS retails for over $33,000, I feel it's too small to be so expensive - especially since it's aimed at a "niche" performance small car buyer. They can probably beat the BMW 3 series in a lap or on the track, but who in their right mind is gonna take a "Cadillac" over a "BMW"? The people buying these cars shop based on name - not on specs. I really feel that loyal buyers aren't cross shopping the ATS and 3 -series.
The interior looks and feels great but, Cadillacs should offer:
-massage lumbar in the seats
- motorized waterfall cushions as an option
- CUE as a STANDARD feature (especially at these prices!!!)

2013 Cadillac ATS 0-60 MPH Mile High Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Cadillac ATS is one of the
most surprising cars that we've tested this year. Could it be that ATS
stands for A Total Surprise? The Cadillac ATS competes with some of the
best and most popular small and sporty entry level luxury cars sold today
and that includes the BWM 3 series, the Mercedes-Benz C Class and the A4.
Any of these three might easily win the TFLcar Annual 10 Ten Most Fun to
Drive Car designation. And now we can add the 2013 Cadillac ATS to this
list of fun, fast and favorite cars. The Caddy ATS is a total surprise
because of just how good it really is to drive. Check out this exclusive
TFLcar video review as we test out Cadillac's smallest and most fun to

2013 Cadillac ATS review details
The engine lineup starts with a standard 2.5L four-cylinder; a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder and the V-6 are
available. The four-cylinders are next-generation engines, with the 2.0L turbo offered with a manual transmission --
a choice that's unavailable in some luxury cars.
Increased efficiency was a priority for the new four-cylinders. It was
achieved partly through lower engine friction, which was reduced by up to
16 percent using new technologies such as a variable-displacement oil pump
and, with the 2.5L, an actively controlled thermostat. Cadillac proprietary
computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis techniques were used to develop
an all-new combustion system with a higher compression ratio, which also
helps Boost efficiency.
The 2.5L is rated at 202 horsepower (151 kW) and 191
lb.-ft. or torque (259 Nm), while the 2.0L turbo -- the latest in a series of technologically
advanced, high-output turbo engines --
is rated at 272 horsepower (203 kW) and 260
lb.-ft. of torque (353 Nm). The award-winning 3.6L V-6 is rated at 321 horsepower (239 kW)
and 275 lb.-ft. of torque (373 Nm).
At 136hp/L, the new 2.0L turbo is one of
the most power-dense engines in the industry, topping engines from European
All of the engines feature direct injection and dual overhead camshafts
with continuously variable valve timing, which help optimize power and
efficiency, as well as reduce emissions. And all of the engines are matched
with six-speed transmissions, including the Hydra-Matic 6L45 automatic with
tap-shift control, and a six-speed manual available with the turbo engine.
The ATS is offered with Cadillac CUE (with or without navigation) -- a
comprehensive, in-vehicle experience that merges intuitive design with auto
industry-first controls and commands for information and entertainment
data. It is designed to be unique for each consumer, from the "simple user"
to the fully connected "super user."
CUE (Cadillac User Experience), pairs entertainment and information data
from up to 10 Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, USBs, SD cards and MP3
players with a vehicle infotainment system that reduces complexity through
customized information, voice commands and fewer buttons and larger icons.
For example, most of today's luxury cars have around 20 buttons controlling
the radio and entertainment functions. CUE has only four.
The heart of CUE is the eight-inch LCD multi-touch sensitive screen,
seamlessly integrated into the top of the central instrument panel and a
motorized, fully capacitive faceplate at the bottom concealing a 1.8L
storage area. The vibrant LCD screen displays CUE's home page, which
resembles a smart phone's screen, by using large, easy-to-target icons to
execute commands. Capacitive technology refers to using electrodes to sense
the conductive properties of objects, such as a finger.

2013 Cadillac ATS CUE System Demo with Lead Industrial Designer Robert Jablonski
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/cadillac/ats/ Autobytel recently caught
up with Robert Jablonski who is the Lead Cadillac CUE Creative Designer.
Robert, who has worked on both the Converj and Plantinum concept cars in
the past, was gracious enough to give us a demo of the new CUE system found
in the 2013 Cadillac ATS. Heck you can even learn a few tricks to help you
operate the CUE system more smoothly.
Located in the gauge cluster is a high intensity and high resolution
5.7-inch display. The new 3-spoke steering wheel has a 5-way controller and
voice recognition system. As the heart of the CUE system is an 8-inch
display and fully capacitive faceplate. The CUE system from Cadillac offers
3 brand new features:
1) Proximity Sensing - As you reach for the large display, the CUE system
senses your hand and activates.
2) Capacitive Touch -- This feature is very similar to a table or smart
phone in that it allows the user to navigate and scroll via touch.
3) Haptic Feedback -- A little vibration or pulse is sent through the
system to your finger that alerts you to the fact you have made a
CUE makes it easy to add favorites, simply drag your favorites up and save.
You can save radio stations, addresses, points of interest, contacts, and
