Before I get into the options and pricing for the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V, I should point out that there are not official numbers from General Motors. This information originated on the enthusiast community forum ATS-V.org and while this details certainly appear to be legit, the actual option list and pricing information could vary a bit from this once the full, official pricing has been rolled out by GM. While this information likely came from some sort of official source, the fact that it may contain preliminary figures could lead to some differences in official pricing – but this information sheds a whole lot of light on what options ATS-V buyers will be able to pick, and what they can expect to pay for those add-ons.
2016 Cadillac ATS-V Options
According to the post on ATS-V.org, there will be a surprisingly long list of option packages and standalone options when the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V goes on sale later this year.
Option packages for the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V begin with the Track Performance Package, which includes the Carbon Fiber Package (which we will address below), the Performance Data Recorder and a low weight battery, while removing unnecessary items such as the floor mats, the tire inflator kit and the tow hooks. This package also adds $6,195 to the final price. The Carbon Fiber Package costs $5,000 on its own, and it includes a carbon fiber front splitter, unique hood vent trim, a unique rear diffuser, non-carbon fiber composite rocker panel extensions and a non-carbon fiber composite rear spoiler. Also, as a standalone option, the Performance Date Recorder (PDR) costs $1,300 so if you order the Track Performance Package, you end up getting a discount on the pair of the PDR and the Carbon Fiber Package, while getting the lightweight battery for free.
Those 2016 Cadillac ATS-V buyers who want more luxury from their high performance Caddy can pick the $2,500 Luxury Package, which includes the Cadillac CUE infotainment system with Navigation, unique pedals, a universal garage door opener, HID headlights and a folding rear seat. IF you don’t want the pedals, the garage door opener and the rear folding seat, you can get just the CUE system with navigation for $1,085, which includes a Bose speaker system. Those who order the Luxury package can also add the Safety and Security Package for $1,850, and this gets you an advanced security system, the Driver Awareness Package, rear thorax air bags and the heads up display system. If you get the Track Performance Package, you cannot get the Safety and Security package, but you can add just the heads up display to any ATS-V for $425. Luxury Package buyers can also add a sunroof for $1,050, but this option is also unavailable with the track package.
The final option package for the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V is the Protection Package, which for $305, adds back in the floor mats, the tow hook and the tire inflation kit that was deleted for the Track Performance Package. Basically, you have to pay $305 to get your floor mats back if you get the track package.
Standalone options for the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V sedan and coupe that are not listed above include painted brake calipers in red or gold for $595, Recaro performance seats for $2,300, 18 inch bright finish wheels for $900 and a $300 sueded microfiber sport steering wheel with paddle shifters in those models with the automatic transmission.
Estimated Build Prices
Based on these prices from ATS-V.org, we can figure out roughly how much it will cost to buy a heavily optioned 2016 Cadillac ATS-V. For those looking for the ultimate performance car, the ATS-V coupe starts at $63,660, while adding the Track Performance Package ($6,195), the red brake calipers ($595), the sport steering wheel ($300) and the Recaro seats ($2,300) will put the final build price right around $73,050. That same car with floor mats will run you $73,355.
If you want your 2016 Cadillac ATS-V to be a daily driver for you and your family, while packing all of the luxosport amenities, the ATS-V sedan with the Luxury Package might be the better fit. The sedans starts at $61,460, with the Luxury Package adding $2,500, the safety upgrade adding $1,850, the sunroof adding $1,050, the bright finish wheels adding $900, the steering wheel upgrade adding $300 and the Recaro seats finishing up the option list at $2,300 – all of which gives you a hefty MSRP of $70,360.
Once the full configurator tool has gone live on Cadillac.com, you can be sure to read about it here on TorqueNews, with any adjustments in the prices being announced at that point. For now, the numbers from ATS-V.org shows that for not a whole lot more money, buyers of the newest super-Caddy can customize their new car to their tastes.
