2013 Cadillac ATS and Three Other GM Models to Debut in Detroit

GM has announced that the 2013 Cadillac ATS compact rear wheel drive sedan and three other concept or production vehicles will debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

“ATS is a crucial part of Cadillac’s expansion,” GM Senior Vice President of Global Product Development Mary Barra told the Automotive Press Association on Friday. “ATS enters the biggest market segment in the global luxury car industry, both in terms of volume and importance.

“It’s a segment dominated by German cars, including the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class and Audi A4, so we’ve developed a compelling and convincing new challenger,” she said.

The 2013 Cadillac ATS will go into production next summer at the Lansing, Mich., Grand River Assembly plant.
