    GM Confirms 3.6 Liter V6 for 2013 Cadillac ATS

    GM gives prospective buyers another engine choice

    By: Mark Bono


    While discussing testing around the Nordschleife in Germany, GM confirmed another engine choice for the upcoming 2013 Cadillac ATS. In addition to the new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, Cadillac's small car will feature GM's familiar 3.6-liter V-6. While power numbers were not revealed, GMI expects it to produce similar power to the CTS. While not confirmed yet, a third engine choice is also expected to be GM's new 2.5-liter Ecotec four-cylinder, serving as the base engine. The 2.5-liter and 3.6-liter V-6 are expected to feature GM's second generation six-speed automatic transmission only.

    The 270 horsepower 2.0-liter turbo will be available with both six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. This transmission arrangement is not surprising as GMI has been told the 2.0-liter turbo will be marketed as the sport/performance trim level, while the more refined V-6 will be the luxury trim level on the ATS. A similar trim level setup is on the current CTS, though with two V-6 offerings. Cadillac also confirmed that the ATS will utilize the second generation Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control suspension.

    The 2013 Cadillac ATS will be unveiled in January at the Detroit International Auto Show and GMI will be there to cover it. So stay tuned!

    Should be an eight speed. Is an eight speed on the horizon for the 2014 model?

    This would be actual news if they were announcing the 3.6 in the Buick Regal GS. If it wasn't offered in the ATS, Caddy would be lambasted FOREVER throughout the online auto community.

    In passing discussing testing ...

    I'm loving the engine choices so far. Sounds like the ATS will be a really fun car.

    Nice hardware.

    Things are lining up for the ATS. Its going to be hard for people to ignore a bold, sporty sedan with segment leading technology such as MRC and CUE. Not to mention, the interior is going to be a breath of fresh air compared to the cold and lifeless interiors of its German competitors.

    The CTS-V already proved that Cadillac can beat BMW at their own game, but Cadillac needs to be about more than that and I think the ATS will deliver on many fronts.

    This is the Alpha; the beginning. Let's see how bad Cadillac wants to be #1 when they unveil the car next month.

    BMW may not be too nervous right now, but Im sure they are keeping their eye on it. Besides, with all the people I know who own a BMW they only by it because of the name and reputation, most if not all of them have no idea that the car is capable off, and thats why BMW probably won't even break a sweat as they sell cars on the BMW name alone.

    The three models they have to get spot on are the ATS, CTS and ULS then both BMW and MB will have problems.

    Any word of a Gen V V8 engine? Even a small 4.8L or something would be good to have in this car.

    Hope it's much lighter than the CTS, otherwise the 3.6 won't give it much more performance. I still think the ATS is now the spiritual second gen CTS(it even looks like the first gen CTS), and the third gen CTS is going to be the spiritual successor to the STS. Interesting how we have heard basically NOTHING about the next CTS other than they decided to keep the coupe.
