2016 Cadillac ATS-V Specs

It’s the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V, with 455 horsepower, a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds, and a top speed of 185 MPH. Say hello to the latest threat to the BMW M3/M4 dynamic duo.

It’s packing a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6, routing 455 HP and 445 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels through either an eight-speed automatic or – holy of holies – a six-speed manual equipped with Active Rev Match for the heel-toe-averse. Final curb weight still hasn’t been released, but we’re hearing something in the neighborhood of 3,700 pounds, partially thanks to a standard carbon fiber hood.

But the power isn’t what has us frothing at the mouth. The chassis has been gone over to increase overall stiffness by 25 percent, with new gusseting and a V-brace spanning the engine. At each corner is GM’s third generation Magnetic Ride Control which adjusts to the road conditions in milliseconds – 40 percent faster than the last gen system. Joining the new MRC, Performance Traction Management system, and e-diff are 14.5-inch discs up front and 13.3-inch rears, each squeezed by Brembo calipers (six piston up front, four in the rear), and framed by forged alloys sized 18 or 19 inches and wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber

Optional kit includes a Carbon Fiber pack with a new wing, splitter, and venting, while a Track Package adds the Corvette’s Performance Data Recorder, a smaller battery, along with nixing the floor mats and tire inflator to shed around 30 pounds. Recaros are mounted up front and there’s the normal assortment of multimedia bobbles, including the insufferable CUE system.

2016 Cadillac ATS-V Price

The ATS-V, an M3/M4 killer to its very core, is exactly $1490 cheaper than either BMW. (The Cadillac coupe notches up the price to $63,660 against the M4 coupe’s $65,150.) Cadillac dealers are now taking orders for spring delivery, and while General Motors has not released option pricing, there’s a lot already baked into the V. GM’s third-generation Magnetic Ride Control (promising 40 percent quicker responses), Brembo brakes, a carbon-fiber hood, and a six-speed manual with no-lift shifting are all standard. And then there are the other numbers, which we list in descending order of importance: 455 horsepower, 445 lb-ft of torque, a claimed zero-to-60-mph run of 3.9 seconds, and an unrestricted 189-mph top speed.

More than just a desirable road car, the ATS-V will also become Cadillac’s entrant into the world of motorsports. Even before the new car hits the showroom, Cadillac Racing’s new ATS-V.R racecar will begin the Pirelli World Challenge GT 2015 season March 7-8 at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Cadillac Racing is the three-time defending manufacturer’s and driver’s champion in the series, which features legendary marques such as Audi, Ferrari and Porsche.
