[PHOTOS] Cadillac Offers ATS-V and CTS-V in Limited Pedestal Editions
Cadillac is phasing out the ATS-V and CTS-V, but first, it has one final celebration in store for those models. To recognize the 15-year anniversary of the high-performance V-Series, the luxury brand is releasing the ATS-V and CTS-V in a pair of special editions.
On the exterior, these Pedestal Editions will feature new Bronze Sand Metallic paint jobs with black chrome grille surround and trim. The forged alloy wheels will feature an After Midnight finish and large red Brembo brake calipers. The CTS-V Pedestal Edition will also feature the Carbon Fiber Package, which already comes standard on the ATS-V.
Inside the cabin, Pedestal Editions will be outfitted with jet-black semi-aniline leather Recaro sport seats. The interior will be trimmed in bronze-threaded carbon fiber. Technology features will include the latest Cadillac user experience infotainment system, a Performance Data Recorder system with Cosworth Toolbox driver analysis software, and, for the CTS-V only, a Rear Camera Mirror.
Pricing starts at $77,090 for the ATS-V Pedestal Edition and 102,590 for the CTS-V version.
Although Cadillac is saying goodbye to the ATS-V and CTS-V, the V-Series legacy will continue with the all-new 2019 CT6-V. Motivated by a 550-horsepower Twin Turbo V8, the CT6-V will also come with high-performance features like all-wheel drive, all-wheel steering, Magnetic Ride Control, and a limited slip differential.
