As promised in my last post, here's the next car review: 2016 Cadillac ATS 2.0T AWD Luxury edition. As an Import enthusiast, I have often considered anything from General Motors as just a boring car for the masses. Reliable? Of course. Relatively low cost of ownership? More or less. But cool? Sure, the Corvette, the Cadillac "V" models and the Camaro ZL1 are cool, but they are few among many cars that, to be honest, are appliances. Tools to get from A to B in relative comfort and reliability.
So, having driven the CTS and CT6, my view is slowly changing. Then, I drove the ATS....
|At nearly $42,000, this car is far from a base model. Fully loaded, minus a sunroof.|
|From the front, the car is unmistakeably a Cadillac. It exudes all of the Street cred you'd expect from a Cadillac|
|The rear end is also styled in the now-familiar Cadillac styling of hard lines, and angles.|
|The dual exhausts give the car a bit of an agressive look|
|Having not opnend the hood, looked at the badging or the giant info sheet on the left rear window, I was under the impression I was driving the 3.6L AWD model. The power feels immediate, and plentiful.|
