The ATS-V is a performance-oriented version of the entry-level rear-wheel-drive Cadillac ATS.
The 2016 Cadillac ATS-V sedan starts at $61,460, including a $995 destination charge.
The 2016 Cadillac ATS-V coupe is priced from $63,660, including shipping.
Deliveries of the smallest and lightest of the company's "V" series models will begin in the spring. Car shoppers can begin configuring their own ATS-V online at Cadillac.com in April.
With Tuesday's pricing announcement, shoppers got official word that the ATS-V undercuts its chief rival, the 2015 BMW M4 coupe, which starts at $65,150, including a $950 destination charge.
The ATS-V features a standard carbon-fiber hood and Brembo brake system. Options include a downforce-generating track aerodynamics package and Performance Data Recorder that allows drivers to record their driving experiences and share them on social media. The Performance Data Recorder was introduced on the Chevrolet Corvette.
Both sedan and coupe models of the ATS-V are equipped with a 455-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine. The engine is linked to either a six-speed manual transmission or a paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission.
Edmunds says: It's time to get the conversation started with your Cadillac dealer about the 2016 ATS-V.
