What’s New for the 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe?
This is likely to be the last model year for the ATS Coupe — Cadillac plans to discontinue it and replace it with the new CT5. For its final bow, the 2019 ATS Coupe isn’t offering any new features. It is, however, deleting a couple. Buyers will no longer be able to get the ATS Coupe with a six-speed manual transmission. Also, a trio of paint colors will no longer be available: Phantom Gray Metallic, Midnight Sky Metallic, and Silver Moonlight Metallic.
The 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe is a luxury car that’s built to perform, and its appearance reflects that. Every ATS Coupe offers an athletic, low-slung profile with a chrome-accented grille, dual-outlet exhaust, vertical LED signature lighting, and 18-inch alloy wheels. On higher trims, the ATS Coupe adds features like High-Intensity Discharge headlamps, illuminated door handles, and a power sunroof.
The 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe offers a pair of powertrains. The first one, standard on ATS Coupe and Luxury trims, is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that makes 272 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The second one, standard on Premium Luxury and Premium Performance trims, is a 3.6-liter V6. This engine, which delivers 335 horsepower and 285 lb-ft of torque, is also paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
All ATS Coupe trims are available in RWD or AWD configurations except for Premium Performance, which is available only in RWD.
When equipped with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine, the 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe achieves an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. With the 3.6-liter V6, the ATS Coupe gets 19 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
The ATS Coupe’s sporty yet luxurious cabin offers standard features like leatherette seat trim, ambient lighting, and wireless charging. The standard Cadillac user experience infotainment system offers an 8-inch touch screen along with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 12-speaker Bose audio setup. Higher trims add leather seating, heated steering wheel, alloy sport pedals, 14-way adjustable front performance seats, and a Head-Up Display.
The ATS Coupe’s StabiliTrak electronic stability control system adjusts the car’s brakes and torque to maintain maneuverability and traction even in adverse conditions. Other key standard safety features include a Rear Vision Camera and OnStar’s suite of services, which include roadside assistance and automatic emergency response. Higher trims of the ATS Coupe add standard and available advanced active-safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Park Assist, and Automatic Braking.
