2013 Cadillac ATS to be shown to a few hundred million during Super Bowl XLVI

The upcoming 2013 Cadillac ATS is a very important model to the brand and now General Motors plans on letting a few hundred million know how important it is during the Super Bowl next moth.

The commercial will be Cadillac’s first since 2007 and will showcase the new ATS sedan a full six months before it hits dealerships. Caddy spokesman David Caldwell said the spot will focus on the development of the car – most of which took place at the Nurburgring.

Caldwell said that GM decided to run the Cadillac ATS spots during the Super Bowl because it wants to attract a bunch of new young buyers to the sedan and show how that it is seriously committed to taking on the German sedans.
