Fuel Economy Ratings Revealed for the 2013 Cadillac ATS

The new 2013 Cadillac ATS fuel economy ratings are not that bad considering the power output. When equipped with the 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine, Caddy’s BMW 3-Series fighter manages 22 city and 33 highway mpg, 21 city and 31 highway mpg when fitted with the 2.0 liter Turbo, and 19 city and 28 highway mpg with the 3.6 liter V6.

The output power for the 2.5 liter engine has 205 horsepower, the 2.0 Turbo has p272 horsepower, and the V6 321 horsepower. It is most likely that customers will get the Turbo because it’s the best compromise between power and efficiency.

The new Cadillac ATS has many built-in fuel-saving features such as: swept-back styling for minimal air resistance, active aero grille shutters that automatically close when additional engine cooling is not needed, and optimized underbody.  In addition, they have managed to keep the weight of the car to 3,315 pounds (1,053kg), which is fairly low for a car.
