Jim Hudson Cadillac, Columbia South Carolina’s exclusive Cadillac dealer, is proud to announce the coming arrival of a new Cadillac sedan, codenamed ATS. This new, smaller Cadillac slots in below the Car and Driver 10Best-winning CTS, which will be bracketed on the other side by the new Cadillac XTS in Columbia SC slated to arrive that spring.
The 2013 Cadillac ATS is a true rear-wheel drive luxury sports car, available in sedan form where it will go against the finest from Germany including the BMW 3-series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Audi A4. ”The car we’ve codenamed ATS starts a new chapter for Cadillac in the luxury market’s C-segment. We’re confident it will attract luxury car buyers who previously would not have considered Cadillac,” said GM North America president Mark Reuss. ATS will ride on a new platform, internally referred to as Alpha and currently slated to be exclusive to Cadillac. While Cadillac did not discuss engines intended to go in the ATS, GM Inside News expects it to receive four-cylinder power in both naturally-aspirated and turbocharged form.
Production of this sedan is slated to happen at the Lansing Grand River plant, itself no stranger to luxury performance cars as it is the manufacturing home of the much-lauded Cadillac CTS for sale in Columbia SC. The Cadillac CTS is available in sedan, coupe, and sport wagon body styles, riding on the larger Sigma platform. An investment of $190 million is allowing the plant to undergo upgrades to permit both cars to be produced together, in addition to adding or retaining 600 jobs.
