Vanity Fair Calls Cadillac ATS “The Most Exciting Car at the Detroit Auto Show”

The Cadillac ATS at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show

Whenever a new vehicle debuts from one of our favorite automakers, it’s always thrilling to see what kind of press feedback the vehicle will achieve. The new Cadillac ATS just debuted, and already it has created quite a buzz: Vanity Fair called it “the most exciting car at the Detroit Auto Show” last week.

Advancing the creasy poignard edge of the brand’s “Arts and Science” design style, but pulling the lines down and tucking them taut in a way that’s more Danish Modern than High Bauhaus, the ATS looks at once balanced and audacious, and every bit a contemporary Cadillac…We’re also revved about what’s under the hood and…whatever part of the car the transmission underpins. What we mean is, there will be an all-new, high-output, and highly efficient four cylinder turbocharged engine pumping out as much power (270 hp) to the rear wheels as the old V-6 in the CTS’s bay, and a real slick stick shift to direct its forward (and backward) progress.

We won’t see the new Cadillac for several more months, but VF’s review has us anticipating a stupendous vehicle. We’ll keep you posted on the ATS details as they come.
