Cadillac brings the ATS Coupe and Escalade to Europe

Cadillac ATS Coupe and Cadillac Escalade are the two most recent models released by the brand. Founded more than one hundred years ago in Detroit, their producer, Cadillac was and still is the automotive expression of the American dream, although we don’t get to see Cadillacs that often on road.  The two vehicles combine great performance, daring design and ultimate technology. So why not try their luck in Europe, too?

Cadillac has announced that both Cadillac ATS Coupe and Cadillac Escalade will have their European debut at the Geneva Motor Show in a month or so. The ATS Coupe will enter sales this autumn and it is meant to be a competitor for the Audi A5 and BMW 4-Series Coupe. Details were not released yet. However, Cadillac confirmed the model will be equipped with the CUE infotainment system, Magnetic Ride Control and a set of 18-inch alloy wheels. The powering unit will be a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine outputting 276 HP (203 kW). Rear-wheel drive will come as standard but all-wheel drive system will be optional, too.

The Cadillac Escalade, on the other hand, will be power sourced by a 6.2-liter V8 engine which for the US model produces 420 bhp (313 kW) and 460 lb-ft (623) of torque. It should arrive on the market by the end of 2014 and it will exclusively have a four-wheel drive system. The Cadillac ATS Coupe and the new Escalade offer a myriad of new features, ranging from enhanced engines to improved safety and infotainment solutions to purposeful, elegant design. This is why the producer is confident in their European success.
