RSS 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe priced from $37,995*

Cadillac has released pricing details on its new-for-2014 ATS Coupe. The new model, which will be available with buyer's choice of a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6 (the ATS Sedan's base 2.5 won't be making the trip) can be had with optional all-wheel-drive in place of the standard rear-wheel setup, while customers can also snag a six-speed manual or six-speed auto.

Prices start at $37,995, which represents a $2,900 premium over the 2014 ATS Sedan (pricing on the 2015 four-door isn't available yet) with the same 2.0-liter engine. Still, the ATS Coupe starts at just over $2,500 less than a base BMW 428i, which is also less powerful and offers less standard equipment. The Caddy is also less costly than the Mercedes-Benz C250 Coupe, although only by about $200. It's even cheaper than the Audi A5, which starts at $38,105, but that model includes all-wheel drive as standard. It should be noted that these prices are without their respective destination charges (*$995 for the Caddy, $925 each for the BMW and the Mercedes and $895 for the Audi).

Unfortunately, Cadillac hasn't released any additional pricing information beyond what we have here, so we can't tell you how much things like all-wheel drive, an automatic transmission or the 321-horsepower V6 will cost. That makes it difficult to figure out just how reasonable the ATS Coupe will be relative to its challengers, but so far, the value equation looks to be in the car's favor. When those full details roll in, though, you know where to look. Scroll down for the official press release from Cadillac.

I can still get a V8-powered automatic Dodge Charger R/T for the same money. GM hasn't figured out that a Turbo 2.0 or a V6 doesn't have the same market cache as an LS motor. So for GM, V8-powered vehicles start at $45k and up. I don't get it. The 4 and 6 cylinders will be more fuel efficient than the V8 sure.



However, its a still being sold as a......wait for it....a Cadillac. You'd think that the company that sold over 95 million small block Chevy V8s over 50 years could produce a low cost V8 by now.



Won't find one in my driveway anytime soon.

I don't see the issue with the current engine setups.

This is the Caddy of the new age for GM. The ATS is aimed square at the Germans, my guess for no V8 is they don't want to develop a new V8 for just this car. Plus, you just can't get the mileage from a turbo four, out of a V8. I'd rather SEE GM beat or compete well with their competiton in their own game, rather than throwing V8s at everything. AWD and a six speed manual? Hell yes!

The ATS is small, it's not a land yacht that needs a house jarring torque monster of a V8.

I have a no complaint with GM offering turbo 4s, and hi-po V6s as mileage alternatives Chaos. Point is I can get a hi-po V8 with market cache (Hemi) for less money that GM's entry level german fighter. Anything with a V8 in a GM automobile seems to start at $45k is my point, when their competition seems to be doing it for $5-10k less. The G8 GT was in this price range and its replacement, the Chevy SS, isn't even trying to compete in this range.
