The new 2013 Cadillac ATS rear-wheel-drive sedan will be among the four vehicles that GM will reveal at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show next month.
“ATS is a crucial part of Cadillac’s expansion,” GM Senior Vice President of Global Product Development Mary Barra told the Automotive Press Association on Friday. “ATS enters the biggest market segment in the global luxury car industry, both in terms of volume and importance. It’s a segment dominated by German cars, including the BMW 3-series, Mercedes C-Class and Audi A4, so we’ve developed a compelling and convincing new challenger.”
The Cadillac ATS will go into production next summer at GM’s Lansing, Mich., Grand River Assembly plant. and will go on sale shortly after that.
