    New Color for ATS Coupe and ATS V Coupe

    Check out the Cadillac build page for the ATS Coupe and ATS V coupe and you can see a new color available: Velocity Red. The new color is brighter and lighter then Red Obsession. To see it, select it as part of the ATS V Coupe build and price. You won't see it but select over to the far right of the base (non-premium) color selection. I like it! So... when my lease runs out on my 2015 ATS Coupe I intend to get a ATS V Coupe with this color! Or I may just keep the ATS coupe I have now.

    Re: New Color for ATS Coupe and ATS V Coupe

    Great catch! It's also available on the ATS-V Sedan, but not the regular ATS Sedan.

    Here's a comparison between the two:

    Red Obsession Tintcoat



    *NEW* Velocity Red

    Also, it appears to be broken for the non-V ATS Coupe:

    Re: New Color for ATS Coupe and ATS V Coupe

    It is the non metallic, fire engine red code G7C. See it on a Chevy called Red Hot or a GMC as Cardinal Red.

    Came in here to say this. I would swear Cardinal Red and Red Hot are two different paint codes, but they are indeed one and the same, as is this Cadillac coloring.

    You spent months posting terrible things about the ATS Coupe not long ago. Now you have one and are contemplating another?

    The short story is once I spent some time with an ATS I changed my mind. Check this out to catch up: https://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/f...-coupe-218865/

    And hello ATS coupe! I never thought it would get to to this. When I bought the 2013 ATS, it was to have a second car to help with the mileage load of my CTS coupe. The ATS would be like that buddy you hang out with when your best friend isn't around.

    Now, after a few months of side by side comparison in my driveway I find myself reaching for the ATS key fob more than the CTS's. Its become obvious to me that I enjoy driving the ATS more. Dont get me wrong, I love the CTS coupe, nothing beats its road presence. The CTS as been good for me and good for Cadillac. Never the less, the 2.0T ATS, accelerates faster, stops quicker and is more nimble.

    Yesterday, I finally took an ATS coupe for a test drive and it handles even better than the ATS sedan. So, reluctantly, I am saying goodbye to my old friend the CTS coupe and trading it in for a black raven 2.0T RWD, ATS coupe. So, I will soon have two ATS's to choose from for my daily commute!

    It's going to be at least a week before I take delivery while I await the black chrome grill and aluminum sport pedals. This will be my sixth Cadillac since 2009.

    Thanks for confirming, chevydlrmn and All Star. Interestingly, the order guide states Cardinal Red is "Available at extra charge. Promotional color."

    So it appears that black and silver are still the only exterior colors that don't incur an extra charge on ATS-V.
    My modes of transportation: CityBus Greater Lafayette, rental cars (usually GM), bicycling, and walking.

    Welcome to the luxury world. Paint colors are extra even on the lowly Audi S3

    You hated Cadillac for discontinuing your CTS Coupe and lambasted it for what you thought was the dull, small, and un-exciting ATS Coupe, and arguing with me about it.

    It seems to me you put your money where MY mouth is!

    Perhaps you find yourself in that situation because you don't have the money to put it where your mouth is...and now you live vicariously thru the purchases of others

    Unlike 90% of the posters who profusely pontificate about Cadillac I actually buy them and drive them. So that gives me the right to criticize and praise them as I see fit as I have done on GMI. Why? Because I want Cadillac to continue to produce cars I want to drive. Some of the biggest Cadillac critics and commentators on GMI will never buy a Cadillac no matter how good the car is and yet they can not resist the temptation to talk about the brand. Perhaps you can engage them.

    Anyway, this thread is about Cadillac's new color option for the ATS. Lot's to talk about there so why not stay on topic. If you want to discuss my surprising choice to trade in my CTS coupe for an ATS coupe then open that thread up and post away.
