The next gateway model of Cadillac is on its way but before it hits the streets, some rather important numerical tests must be conducted. Perhaps one of the most important evaluations is the one performed by the EPA which reveals a vehicle’s average fuel economy ratings. With a light weight construction, tidy frame and low friction Ecotec engine, the four cylinder version of the upcoming ATS is looking to be one of the most efficient Cadillacs in recent memory.
According to Car and Driver Magazine, the 2.5 liter variant was given a EPA rating of 22 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. While not obnoxiously stellar, when a luxury car breaks into the 30 mpg club, it is a step in the right direction. Given history, EPA ratings can be easily broken and surely, there will be a few ATS hypermile figures to be had. Powering the rear wheels via a six speed automatic transmission, the Ecotec powered Caddy produces 200 horsepower which on paper, sounds a bit dated. Even still, finding out the sedan’s actual, off paper performance will be determined in due time.
