2011 Chrysler 300C AWD Gallery
Currently, Cadillac is offering up a fleet of well executed products. However, when we look at things objectively, 2012 will leave us with…3 body-styles of CTS (in normal and extra-strength) and 2 utility vehicles (SRX for normal folk and the Escalade in 3 body styles for the more ostentatious among us).
While you may still find left-over 2011 STSes and DTSes on dealer lots, what will we soon have available to us in a larger-than-CTS sedan while we wait for the upcoming XTS? What about if your tastes run more toward power that comes in 8-pulses per every 2 revolutions but you aren’t really looking for 500+ hp and/or sub-20 mpg ratings? What brings Cadillac levels of luxury but isn’t an SUV or CTS?

As Cadillac gets closer to releasing the ATS into the most competitive portion of the luxury market – their engineers are testing with less and less camouflage and spy photographers are getting even more revealing images of the upcoming sports sedan.
As we can see, the ATS will fit in quite well with the styling theme of the Cadillac brand. The remaining questions will be about how the car performs and works. Answers to these questions will have to wait until the car is released in 2012.

Rumors have colored the upcoming Alpha-chassis based ATS and its ability to compete against the BMW 3-series and other volume sports sedans from the rest of the luxury field.
As a means of combating these doubts, Cadillac has released this video showing some mules undergoing testing and engineering staff (headed by GM NA President Mark Reuss) talking about what they are aiming to accomplish with the ‘ATS’ (still not the official name).
We’re hopeful about the new car, but will have to reserve judgement until we get a chance behind the wheel next year.
