Detroit Auto Show 2015: 2015 Cadillac ATS coupe

1:38 /

Cadillac unveils the 2015 ATS in coupe form at the 2014 Detroit auto show, and updates the classic Cadillac badge as well.

[unk] almost nobody I've met doesn't like the Cadillac ATS, there's some negatives or you. But what it was missing is a coupe model and doesn't miss that anymore because here it is, 2 doors, beautiful fast back but not so fast back that it's almost cartoony which the CTS Coupe looks a little bit too to my eye. What's also going on under the hood here is an interesting story. Like the sedan, you've got a 2-liter turbo 4. Unlike the sedan, more torque out of the same engine. They've wrung out over 35 foot pounds out of it, 295 total and like the sedan you can also get that 2 liter 4 with a manual gear box. See where I'm going? Very interesting. Inside the cabin, some new technologies are going on there, as well. They have the Q head unit available. It's going to have a special App Store for it later in the year which is the new Cadillac innovation. This is also one of the first cars GM has rolled out and it's gonna have their 4G built-in LTE wireless to operate those connected apps as well as create a meaningful hotspot in the car which you just can't do with 3G shared within a vehicle. On driver assistance tech, this will have a lot of the common players available now like Adaptive Cruiser, Magnetic Ride Control is also in there but they've also got a Front and Rear Aware Automatic Breaking System, not just Front Aware. Cadillac's moving fast towards this thing they call Super Cruise. Oh notice this, first production Cadillac you'll see that it has lost the crest around the Cadillac logo. That old "Hail Ceasar Caligula" look from way back in the day just was looking real dated and now they're moving away from it.
