Cadillac ATS 3.6L V6 rated at 19/28 mpg image

The Cadillac ATS equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 engine has been recently rated by the EPA at 19/28 mpg in city/highway for the rear-wheel drive version.

According to the EPA, the 2013 Cadillac ATS can return 19/28 mpg in city/highway when equipped with its most powerful engine option yet, the 3.6 liter V6 unit, which is sending power to the rear-wheel drive system, while for the all-wheel drive variant and the same V6 engine, the sedan can return 18/26 mpg in city/highway. The figures of the 3.6L V6 engine have improved compared to the ones from the 2013 Cadillac ATS, by one mpg.

The Cadillac ATS will be offered in the future with an eight-speed automatic transmission, which will replace the current six-speed automatic, and the fuel consumption numbers are expected to improve and come closer to the ones of the BMW 3-Series. The EPA didn’t release any ratings for the 2.0 liter I-4 turbocharged engine yet and this unit is offered with either a manual or an automatic transmission. The Cadillac ATS is competing with the BMW 3-Series, the Audi A4 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the model will be launched in Europe by the end of this year.
