2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe

The Cadillac ATS is a winner. Good looks, great ride, fun to drive, and smattered with a bit of luxury. Cadillac can’t seem to miss these days. If the 2015 Cadillac ATS coupe is any indication they don’t intend to quit swinging for the fences any time soon. Long gone are any idea that the Cadillac brand is for old people. Oh sure they can still buy them too but more often then not when I’m chatting with my friends a Cadillac comes into the conversation as an object of desire.

There is a lot to like here with the 2.0L Turbo engine being standard producing 295 ft-lbs of torque which is enough to waft the car to 60mph in 5.6 seconds. The car also boasts 50/50 weight balance and big Brembo brakes so it should be pretty capable if you feel the need for a fun run through the corners. AWD will be an option for those who need even more traction. I’ve put together some info after the jump including a short video.
