New For 2014

The 2014 Cadillac ATS adds four new exterior colors, Intellibeam automatic high-beam control to the Driver Awareness and Driver Assist packages, frameless inside rearview mirror, a 110-volt power outlet on the rear of the central console for models equipped with CUE and Navigation package, and a larger-diameter leather-wrapped sport steering wheel on cars with paddle shifters. Three new-design 19-inch wheels, and aluminum sport pedals are now available as dealer-installed accessories.

Vehicle Overview

The 2014 Cadillac ATS is a compact luxury sports sedan slotting under the midsize CTS and sold in rear- or all-wheel-drive configurations.

Summary

The 2014 ATS is available with three engine choices: a 2.5-liter I-4 producing 202 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque, a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 making 272 hp and 260 lb-ft or a 3.6-liter V-6 with 321 hp and 275 lb-ft. All engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission as standard while a six-speed manual is available exclusively with the turbo-four. Performance is a 2014 ATS strong suit, making it “genuinely fun to drive and really satisfy to hustle.” It strikes an excellent balance between ride and handling that “makes it feel alive in your hands” while maintaining a ride that remains tolerable on bad roads.

Interior space is sufficient in the 2014 ATS but remains one of the least roomy compact luxury sport sedans on the market. Seating for four average-sized adults is acceptable but taller people will want to sit upfront due to the lack of head room in the rear seats due to the low roof line. Cargo capacity is decent for the class but remains on the small side with only 10.4 cubic feet of trunk space, which is expandable with the folding rear seats. Cadillac’s User Interface system (CUE) detracts from the interior’s daily usability due to complicated and fussy touch-sensitive controls on the center stack. Additionally, the system’s lack of responsiveness also distracts the driver since it “can’t be operated by feel.”

The 2014 Cadillac ATS has a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars) but it hasn’t been crash tested by the IIHS.

Cadillac Ats V Coupe Spied 03 Front Three Quarter
Although we’ve already spied the upcoming high-performance ATS-V sport sedan testing on multiple occasions, spy shooters recently caught the ATS-V coupe in action. Despite the camouflage wrapping and vinyl covers, we can spot various visual cues on the prototype shared with the upcoming ATS-V and CTS-V sedans.
2014 Cadillac Ats Crimson Sport Edition Front Three Quarters
The all new Cadillac ATS Coupe may be getting all the attention lately, but the sedan gets some love for 2014 thanks to a new special edition called the Cadillac ATS Crimson Sport. We already think that the Cadillac ATS is a pretty sporty machine, and this new version offers up subtle exterior and interior enhancements that give the ATS a slightly sportier look to complement its exclusive Crimson Red Metallic exterior color.
2015 Cadillac ATS V Front Three Quarter Spied 2
The upcoming Cadillac ATS-V is still wrapped in mystery and intrigue, but we're hearing some interesting behind-the-scenes whispers regarding its powertrain. Yes, the car is expected to utilize a twin-turbocharged direct-injection V-6, but latest rumblings suggest it's not the same engine found in the larger CTS Vsport and XTS Vsport sedans.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Cadillac ATS vehicles manufactured April 23, 2012, to March 20, 2014, and 2014 Cadillac CTS vehicles manufactured June 10, 2013, to March 20, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable may detach from either the bracket on the transmission shifter or the bracket on the transmission.
Consequences
If the transmission shift cable detaches while the vehicle is being driven, the transmission gear selection may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Furthermore, when the driver goes to stop and park the vehicle, despite selecting the 'PARK' position, the transmission may not be in 'PARK.' If the vehicle is not in the 'PARK' position there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure the cable is properly seated at the transmission and shifter brackets, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early August 2014. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14179.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Buick Encore and Cadillac ATS; 2014 Cadillac CTS, ELR, Chevrolet Caprice and SS vehicles; and 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Trucks. Due to an incomplete weld on the seat hook bracket assembly, the front seats in the affected vehicles may not stay secured in place during a high load condition such as a crash.
Consequences
A seat that does not stay secured increases the risk of occupant injury in a vehicle crash.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat hook bracket assembly weld and replace the lower seat track, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on August 15, 2014. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), and 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 14340.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Cadillac ATS vehicles manufactured April 25, 2012, to February 9, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the power-operated roof panels auto-close when the non-recessed "Slide" or "Tilt" switches are pressed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) No. 118, "Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems."
Consequences
Because the switch is not recessed, the roof panel switch may inadvertently be pressed resulting in unintended auto-closure of the roof panel, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the roof console accessory switch trim plate, free of charge. The recall began on March 10, 2015. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 15119.
