We Have a 2017 Cadillac ATS-V, What Do You Want to Know About It?

By -

Courtesy of the fine folks at General Motors and Cadillac, a 2017 Cadillac ATS-V was dropped off at our office with a note that said something to the effect of: “Have fun, we think you’ll enjoy it.”


The baby V features a twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 engine making 464 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque. Our initial test drive showcases a very linear power delivery and great tractability (read: it puts the power down no problem, even in first gear).

This particular ATS-V is pretty much loaded, featuring the Carbon Black package, which includes the carbon fiber aero bits, black trim and Recaro competition seats; the Luxury Package with heads-up display, nav and all of the interior goodies; Performance Data Recorder (which is awesome); the gold Brembo brakes, wide black wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport performance street rubber, and crucially: a 6-speed manual transmission, with no-lift shift.


So, we have this fine looking automobile for a week, what do you want to know about it?
