Cadillac ATS in Denver Impressive Power
Three engines are available for the 2014 Cadillac ATS in Denver. The 2.5 Cadillac ATS models come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 202 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. The 2.0 Turbo models come with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 272 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. The 3.6 models come with a 3.6-liter V6 that cranks out 321 hp and 274 lb-ft of torque. All Cadillac ATS engines come matched to a six-speed automatic transmission except the 2.0-liter turbo, which can also be had with a six-speed manual. Rear-wheel drive is standard across the board. All-wheel drive is optional for the 2.0- and 3.6-liter Cadillac ATS engines and requires the automatic transmission. The rear-drive Cadillac ATS 2.0T with the manual went from zero to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds. A rear-drive ATS 3.6 Premium with an automatic accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. Both times are average among similarly powered entry-level luxury sedans. Fuel economy ratings for the base Cadillac ATS 2.5 are 22 mpg city/33 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined. Equipped with the automatic, 2.0 Turbo models are estimated to return 21/31/24 in rear-drive configuration and 20/29/23 with AWD (with the manual gearbox and rear-drive, the ATS 2.0 Turbo is rated at 19/30/23). The V6 is estimated to achieve 18/28/22 with rear-wheel drive and 18/26/21 with AWD. Now that’s impressive power.

Cadillac ATS in Denver High End Safety
Standard safety features for the 2014 Cadillac ATS, from your Cadillac Dealership in Denver,  include anti lock disc brakes, traction control, stability control, active front head restraints, front-seat side and knee airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. Also standard is OnStar, which includes automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, remote door unlocking, stolen vehicle assistance and turn-by-turn navigation. Optional safety items for the Cadillac ATS, from Rickenbaugh Cadillac, are included in the aforementioned Driver Awareness (forward collision alert, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, automatic wipers and rear seat side airbags) and Driver Assist packages (adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and collision mitigation with brake assist). Note that the collision mitigation system that’s part of the Driver Assist package will automatically apply the brakes in both low-speed forward and rearward potential collision situations in the Cadillac ATS, which is an unusually high end safety feature in this price range. A rear view camera is optional on the base Cadillac ATS model and standard on the Luxury, Performance and Premium. In brake testing an ATS 3.6 Premium with summer tires came to a stop from 60 mph in 108 feet, which is an average distance for this class of car and tires. A 2.0T with summer tires required a bit more at 113 feet.
