rumors indicated that Cadillac was going to unveil the next-generation
ELR electric vehicle at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. However,
the ELR has been placed on hold. Instead, we saw the world
debut of the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V performance sedan and coupe.
It features a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine, producing
455 hp and 445 lb.-ft. of torque. Upgrades include revised
suspension and braking, a performance traction management
system, larger grille openings, wider fenders and Recaro front
seats in leather and suede. Production of the all-new ATS-V
will begin in spring 2015.
