Cadillac ATS-L prepared for China

Cadillac ATS is a name that we haven’t heard about for a long time now. Founded more than one hundred years ago in Detroit, its producer, Cadillac was and still is the automotive expression of the American dream. It combines great performance, daring design and ultimate technology. So why not put those three together to revive and spread the ATS model? Well, more than that, Cadillac will introduce the ATS-L version in China, L standing for long wheelbase.

The Chinese seem to prefer long wheelbase versions of some models so it’s no surprise that Cadillac wishes to introduce an ATS stretched variant in China. The regular model is currently being imported and the ATS-L will be locally produced by the Shanghai-GM joint venture. The L variant is supposed to enter production in the second part of the year.

The Cadillac ATS-L will be stretched by 100mm, having a total of 2875mm. It will be powered by a 2.5-liter engine producing 200 bhp (149 kW) and a V6 3.6-liter developing 320 bhp (239 kW).This model should battle the BMW 3-Series Li and Mercedes C-Class in China. The starting price should be somewhere around 275,000 yuan (about 45,500 USD / 33,200 EUR / 27,500 GBP).
