PERFORMANCE

Cadillac ATS-V compact sport sedan performance: racetrack top speed of 189 mph.

FROM TRACK TO ROAD. AND BACK.

Arrive at the intersection of blistering force and precision engineering, where the line between the track and road vanishes beneath four wheels. Raw turns refined and back again with a racetrack top speed of 304 KM/H. This is the 2018 ATS-V Sedan.

 

  • THE HEART OF A PERFORMER

    Exclusive to ATS-V, the 3.6L Twin Turbo engine produces 464 hp and 445 lb-ft of torque, for acceleration best thought of in terms of lift-off. Combined with high-strength, lightweight titanium connecting rods, low-inertia titanium-aluminide turbine wheels and a patented low-volume charge-air cooler, it sprints from 0-100 KM/H in an unsurpassed 3.9 seconds.

    6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION

    ATS-V Sedan comes equipped with a TREMEC 6-speed manual transmission and dual-disc clutch for incredibly precise and satisfying short-throw shifts. Combined with features like No-Lift Shift and Active Rev Matching, it’s the perfect harness for authoritative power.

    8-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

    The available 8-speed automatic transmission features Performance Algorithm Shifting. Automatically activated by intense g-forces, this technology seamlessly selects the best gear for quicker shifts and faster lap times. Magnesium Paddle Shifters provide even more control, allowing you to tap effortlessly through each gear for refined acceleration and deceleration.

 

 

 

2018 ATS-V Sedan performance: signature quad exhaust.

RESONATING POWER

Signal your presence with signature quad exhaust. Integrated electronic valves automatically open and close for refined acoustics at lower speeds with a visceral roar when opened up—amplifying the intent of the 3.6L Twin Turbo.

PERFORMANCE AT YOUR COMMAND

Inside and out, the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V Sedan evokes the spirit of racing. Functionally designed and precisely engineered, its mile-after-mile pleasures are matched only by its mastery of the quarter-mile. The standard has been set. May it beckon you forward.

 

  • MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL®

    Tame the road. The class-exclusive, V-tuned, temperature-adapting Magnetic Ride Control® suspension reads the road up to 1,000 times per second and adjusts accordingly—providing precise control and ride comfort for maximum performance under any condition.

    BREMBO® BRAKES  

    Harness the power. Beneath the lightweight, V-forged wheels lie massive, race-inspired six-piston front, four-piston rear, fixed caliper Brembo® brakes with vented rotors. Ferritic Nitro-Carburizing process greatly reduces corrosion on the rotors to help maintain stopping power and prolong brake life.

Cadillac ATS-V compact sport sedan track capable: standard competition spec traction and stability controls.

PERFORMANCE TRACTION MANAGEMENT

Complete and utter control. The ATS-V compact sport sedan is the first vehicle in its class to offer standard competition spec traction and stability controls. You have a choice of five specifically tuned traction modes (Wet, Dry, Sport 1, Sport 2 and Race) that adjust to different driving conditions at your command.

 

Launch Control monitors traction activity and manages throttle off the line for incredibly consistent 0-100 km/h times.

 

  • COOLING SYSTEMS

    The unmistakable grille and fascia openings of the ATS-V Sedan feed air into its large-capacity radiator and multiple heat exchangers. Its patented low-charge air cooler drops turbo air temps down to an impressive 54 °C. Combined with standard rear differential oil cooler and six water and oil coolers, its race-inspired features remain low-stressed during even the most aggressive driving.

    LIGHTWEIGHT ARCHITECTURE

    A stiffened, lightweight chassis allows the ATS-V Sedan to be taken straight to the track. Its multi-link MacPherson strut independent front suspension delivers rapid response and lateral control. 5-link independent rear suspension achieves all-out track performance and refined, everyday comfort.

PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN

Every element serves a purpose. From chiseled aerodynamic surfaces to the ingenious materials from which they are crafted, the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V Sedan exterior transcends aesthetics—it elevates the vehicle’s performance capabilities. The result is an intimidating sum of parts, both on the street and at the starting line.

AERO SPLITTER

The front aero splitter strikes more than a look—it dramatically improves front down force by directing a massive influx of airflow around the vehicle. Front-end lift is reduced, firmly fixing you to the road.

 

  • REAR SPOILER

    Greater downforce, reduced lift. The aggressive rear spoiler not only punctuates your departure; it provides the air a smooth exit from the rear of the vehicle for enhanced rear stability.

    REAR DIFFUSER

    The integrated rear diffuser accelerates the flow of air underneath the vehicle to lessen underbody pressure and enhance your aerodynamic grip.

    AVAILABLE CARBON FIBRE PACKAGE  

    Less weight, more strength. An exposed weave carbon fibre in the front splitter, hood extractor and rear diffuser introduces even more form and function to an already fierce presence. It is coupled with a more aggressive rocker extension and rear spoiler to significantly improve airflow and downforce.

    Comfort that performs. Available Recaro® front heated performance seating adjusts 16 ways for bolstered, confidence-inspiring support. Or drive in standard 18-way heated and ventilated performance-oriented seats, trimmed in Semi-Aniline leather and V-signature sueded microfibre inserts.

    THICK-RIM STEERING WHEEL  

    Take hold. The ergonomically contoured wheel has a thick rim, making it even easier to grip during every drive. Wrapped in leather or available microfibre suede for refinement and control you can feel.

    CARBON FIBRE INTERIOR TRIM

    Cutting edge. The Carbon Fibre Interior Trim melds exposed carbon fibre accents with a contrasting silver weave. This accentuated cockpit exhilarates your senses, even at a standstill.
