2016 Cadillac ATS-V Power Rating Bumped to 464 HP

DETROIT — The 2016 Cadillac ATS-V will deliver 464 horsepower, GM reported on Tuesday as it published updated technical specifications on the high-performance V-Series coupe and sedan.

The ATS-V lineup goes on sale this spring at Cadillac dealerships.

Torque is now pegged at 444 pound-feet.

When the ATS-V debuted last fall at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, the automaker said the twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine in the ATS-V would generate 455 hp and 445 lb-ft of torque.

With the latest update, GM also revised the ATS-V’s performance numbers.

Zero to 60 mph performance is now pegged at 3.8 seconds and top speed is rated at 189 mph.

The ATS-V can be equipped with either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic.

The key competitor to the ATS-V is the BMW M4.

Edmunds says: The original estimate was conservative, something that should please luxury car shoppers who put high performance at the top of their shopping lists.
