Customers can schedule test drive with new ATS-V
Don Wheaton is quickly becoming a top destination for people wanting to own high-performance cars. Certainly the options for classically sought-after models like the Chevy Camaro and relative new-comers like the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V have generated buzz around the showroom. However, the most savvy buyers are always asking, ‘What’s next?’ That question has been answered in a major way now that the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V is available for sale in Edmonton, AB at Don Wheaton. This is the first-model Cadillac has produced a V-series of the light and nimble ATS coupe and sedan. Performance-minded drivers are sure to quickly fall in love with the upgraded components used to give the new ATS-V an advantage over its competitors.
General Motors classifies the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V as a compact luxury car. This is largely for bureaucratic reasons. Truth-be-told, there is really no one category that will comfortably contain the new Cadillac sedan or coupe. Yes, it was built to be lightweight and responsive. It certainly does fairly well for fuel-consumption scores, despite the potential power it is capable of producing. But to simply saddle the 2016 ATS-V as a compact car misses the mark.
Like its larger siblings, the Cadillac CTS-V and upcoming Cadillac CT6, the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V now available for sale in Edmonton, AB signals a ripple in the luxury class. Historically popular coupes and sedans from European automakers now have another fierce competitor to work with. Cadillac designers wanted to make sure drivers and owners could just about sign the paperwork to own the 2016 ATS-V and drive directly to a local track day. This means opening up the Cadillac high-performance playbook and including everything that will fit inside the car.
Don Wheaton buyers will be considering a car that weighs a little more than 3,000 pounds and produces more than 460 horsepower. Not only is this enough power to quickly and safely merge into highway traffic, but GM testing has had the 2016 ATS-V accelerate from zero-to-96 km/h in fewer than four seconds. In fact, the twin-turbocharged, V-6 engine under the hood of the new ATS-V has the highest power output in the entire class. Both models of the new Cadillac ATS-V in the Don Wheaton showroom use the eight-speed automatic transmission to send power from the engine to the rear wheels.
Because the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V now available for sale in Edmonton, AB can be a coupe or sedan, the interior features many passenger-friendly features. However, from that same design, there is an unescapable feeling that this is a driver’s car. The cockpit more or less wraps around the driver and at the center gauge cluster is large and very readable with racing-inspired elements for the speedometer and tachometer. Drivers that truly want to get the most out of the 2016 ATS-V can use the standard Performance Data Recorder. This feature is like having an entire engineer team track the vehicles telemetry.
