Cadillac Eliminating ATS Sedan From Lineup

As sedan sales continue to drop across the industry, Cadillac has confirmed it will drop the ATS Sedan from its lineup. The 2018 model year will be the last for the four-door ATS.

It comes as little surprise that Cadillac has came to this conclusion. Launched in 2012 as a 2013 model, the ATS has consistently underperformed GM’s sales expectations. Since launch, Cadillac has only given the car minor updates, including a refreshed exterior design in 2015. In 2017 Cadillac dealerships managed to move only 13,100 ATS units; including both sedan and coupe.

While the four-door version is going away, Cadillac will continue to offer the ATS Coupe in 2019, both in base and V-Series variants. Cadillac’s order guide for the 2019 ATS Coupe confirms only typical model year tweaks, aside from the fact that the six-speed manual transmission offered on the 2.0-liter turbo engine is dying as well.

All variants of the ATS are produced at GM’s Lansing Grand River Assembly in Lansing, Michigan. GM previously eliminated a production shift, so it’s unlikely the ATS Sedan death will have an immediate impact on the assembly plant.

    I am sure the XT4 will more than make up for the volume...

    Did GM/USA or GM/Europe engineer this car?


    I believe that GM US led the development of the Alpha platform. GM-Europe (Opel) led the development of Epsilon. And, I think GM's small car platforms came out of Korea. Not sure where the various CUV platforms have been engineered.

    As a former owner, I doubt many will miss it.

    They were going to rename its replacement anyway.
