Cadillac ATS: North American Car of the Year

The Cadillac ATS has won yet another award, this time as North American Car of the Year.


The Cadillac ATS was a hit at last year’s Detroit auto show, and has been collecting awards ever since.

The ATS defeated the Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord for top spots this year. With a sporty yet intelligent design,  the ATS is mastering roads with rear-wheel drive and four cylinder or six cylinder engines. This car truly is competing with German-born luxury sedans, creating a new pride in Detroit and displaying what American ingenuity can accomplish.


Cadillac ATS is North American Car of the Year

“This is a very meaningful honor for the entire Cadillac team, especially the men and women who build the ATS in Lansing, Michigan, and our dedicated and talented designers and engineers. A car like ATS is the result of incredible commitment and focus. That’s the only method for creating a great performing luxury car”, said Cadillac V.P. Bob Ferguson.

This is the first North American Car of the Year award for Cadillac, although the CTS was a finalist in 2008.

On its website, Cadillac calls the ATS “a world class Cadillac like no other.” Apparently the world is starting to take notice. Improved handling and acceleration, a gorgeous interior, and a wide variety of infotainment features compliment the sleek and sophisticated exterior design. Inside and out, the Cadillac ATS is truly like “no other.”
