Cadillac ATS In Denver Exterior Features | Rickenbaugh Cadillac

In the world of the sport sedan there have really only been three modes to be taken seriously over the last couple decades. Sure there have been some Asian and some domestic attempts, and they haven’t been quite bad, but they were just performance based trims for existing vehicles. While they may have been sporty and a sedan none could compare to the big three from Germany the Audi A4, the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes 3 Class have been the longtime champions of the sport sedan market. All offering the kind of luxury amenities that you would expect from a high end sports sedan from a prestigious automaker. Now we have the first legitimate American contender for the crown and it is poised to put up a hard fight. The Cadillac ATS from Rickenbaugh Cadillac is just what we mentioned, a sports sedan that is seeking to take a huge chunk of the market share that has previously been dominated by the German automakers.

Cadillac ATS in Denver True Power
This sports sedan is available in four trim levels, the standard, luxury, performance, and premium. The base model comes equipped with an acceptable 2.5 liter four cylinder that gets you 202 hp, while the luxury and premium models will get you a Turbocharged four cylinder that is good for 272 hp. The performance model is where the true power happens with its 3.6 liter V6 pumping out 321 horses. All of the trim levels come standard as all wheel drive. This is great for a sports oriented Cadillac ATS as the rear wheel drive system is the preferred drivetrain for seriousness enthusiasts the world over. However, the Cadillac ATS isn’t just meant to be for enthusiasts who live in the desert. It’s meant to be available all over the states and that means its going to be here in Colorado. While a front wheel drive system can prove to be adequate in the snow, the rear wheel drive vehicles with this kind of weight on the chassis are a very poor choice when the weather gets going. That  is why I say you have to make one of the following concessions. OPt for the all wheel drive package with your Cadillac ATS in Denver , they are available for all the trims, or get a second car to drive in the winter.

Cadillac ATS in Denver Well Equipped
The base model of the Cadillac ATS in Denver comes quite well equipped from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver despite its name. Such features like heated mirrors are available for the base Cadillac ATS, Where these features were typically only reserved for the most expensive luxury sedans in the past, it is nice to see such a functional technology make it to an affordable vehicle level as well. For many years we have all had windshield wipers and defrosters for out glass, but what about the little pieces of glass outside the car that are so damn vital for a safe drive in the winter time, Sure you could stop and wipe them off every few minutes, or try out one of those products that grease up your glass and say that no moisture will ever stick again, but both of those processes sound … well, like a process. I would much rather know that when I need to see out of my rear views in the snow I just have to hit a button and watch all the ice and sleet just drip away. This becomes even more handy when you step up the luxury edition and get the added bonus of remote ignition start. Not only will your mirrors go ahead and defrost for you while you wait in you tasty office, but your heater and defroster for the rest of your glass will go into action as well. This is well thought out engineering plan. 

Cadillac ATS in Denver Active Shutter Grilles
The Cadillac ATS from Rickenbaugh Cadillac isn’t quite done yet. A bit of technology that I learned about months ago has finally made it to a vehicle that I am reviewing. I love it when that happens. The Cadillac ATS in Denver  is equipped with active shutter grilles. We all know what grilles are for right, they allow cool air to rush into the radiator cooling off the juice that makes you engine go. Well this is all well and good when you are driving at low speed, but when you are travelling fast, these holes in our front end are nothing more than a huge wind tunnel that traps speed robbing wind right there in the front of your vehicle. We know these grilles are a necessity, so what are we to do? Active grilles is what we do. At lower speeds the rilles are just like any other grille,but get the RPM’s a little higher and viola the grilles shutter automatically shut to allow the air to rush past , giving you that much more air efficiency.
