    "The big news powertrain-wise is that the ATS will get a turbocharged four-cylinder. The entry-level ATS is slated to come equipped with a 270 horsepower version of GM’s turbocharged 2.0L engine, backed by an eight-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to those eight cogs, the 2.0 ATS should return 22/32mpg.

    An up-level 3.6L model will also be available, boasting 330 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. It too will be mated with an eight-speed gearbox, returning economy of 20/30mpg.

    Currently, production of the ATS sedan is slated to start in July of 2012, followed by the coupe in July of 2013. All ATS models will be assembled at the automaker’s Lansing, Michigan, assembly plant. Expect pricing to start in the mid-$20,000 range."
  2. I like the ATS-V specs.
  3. UGH @ 8-speed transmission
  4. The turbo version will go out of production after 2 years or so. Everyone will buy the bigger engine.

    Same thing just happened with the SRX.
  5. Not to mention the fact that the turbo four isn't a very good engine for a luxury car.
  6. like SAABs.
  7. I believe it's a Saab-derived unit, come to think of it.
  8. everyones gonna buy the v6, especially because it uses lower grade gas, so itll actually be cheaper in the long run.
  9. isnt it an ecotec?
  10. so they've taken a not very good car and made a smaller not very good car?
  11. ? If its based on the CTS, its going to be great.
  12. Not sure.
  13. ? if its based on anything american, its gonna be rubbish.
  14. especially the chevy montana
  15. Irony.
  16. is based on a german car. ha

    excpet that one! <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>
  18. If this thing looks good, and drops a good bit of weight vs the CTS... It could be epic.
