Cadillac ATS Coupe and Cadillac Escalade debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2014
The Cadillac ATS Coupe and Cadillac Escalade are set to make their European debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2014 later this year in the fall. The two highly anticipated cars add power and style to the already impressive Cadillac stable. Here’s an overview of what you can expect from the handsome luxury cars when they finally arrive in showrooms across Europe.
The Cadillac ATS Coupe
Detailed specifications of the Cadillac ATS Coupe and Cadillac Escalade have not been released as of the time of this writing, but the cars are designed to compete with two of Cadillac’s fiercest competitors: the Audi A5 and BMW 4-Series Coupe.
In its arsenal, the Cadillac ATS packs Magnetic Ride Control, CUE infotainment system and standout 18-inch alloy wheels that are bound to excite any luxury car enthusiast. Rear-wheel drive will be standard to the ATS, while all-wheel drive will be optional.
Cadillac also confirmed the ATS will run on a powerful, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine capable of delivering 276 HP (203 kW). Quite impressive, if you ask us.
The Cadillac Escalade
The Cadillac Escalade, on the other hand, will go on sale in Europe towards the end of 2014. Official specs for the European Escalade are not available yet, but models already on sale in the U.S. boast 420 bhp (313 kW) and 460 lb-ft (623) of torque with an average fuel consumption in the combined cycle figure of 14.5 liters per 100 kilometers.
Cadillac has confirmed the European Escalade version will feature a Magnetic Ride Control for continuous planning and numerous other high-end features, including active noise canceling Bose and Cue infotainment system that embellishes a comfortable interior. The interior itself will feature stylish leather seats characterised by impeccable finishes.
Other Cadillac models to look out for in 2014
The Cadillac ATS Coupe and Cadillac Escalade are not the only models Cadillac plans to debut in Europe this year. The American car maker has a slew of other models it will present at the Geneva Motor Show 2014, including the Cadillac ELR and Cadillac Elmiraj concept.
Cadillac also stated it intends to present a preview on the future of luxury cars in Geneva, which is something we are eagerly waiting for. It’s nice to see Cadillac means business this year with its current range of cars set for debut in the European market.
