So far, the EPA has released fuel-economy ratings for only one of the Cadillac ATS's three engines. More info is now available about the 3.6-liter V-6. Rear-wheel-drive versions of the top-line engine are rated at 19/28 mpg city/highway, and all-wheel-drive versions are rated at 18/26 mpg. The sole transmission for this engine is a six-speed automatic.
We already know the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder is rated at 22/33 mpg with the automatic. The third powertrain available in Cadillac's smallest sedan is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 272 horsepower; it's paired with a six-speed manual. The EPA has yet to rate the turbo, but Cadillac says it should see 22/32 mpg.
The 2013 ATS is available in Standard, Luxury, Performance and Premium trims. The 2.5-liter is available only on Standard and Luxury trims; the 2.0-liter turbo four is available in all trim packages. The 3.6-liter V-6 is available in Luxury, Performance and Premium trims.
The ATS starts at $33,990, including destination, and is on sale now.
