Though there's been quite a bit of fanfare surrounding the Cadillac ATS, we can't help but be a bit dumbfounded when we stumbled into a dealer recently and saw the 3.
6-liter version going for a whopping $48k price.
The base 3.6 with 321 horsepower begins at about $42k and considering its primary competition comes in form of the Audi S4, BMW 335i, Infiniti Q50 and Lexus IS350, it's actually pretty competitive.
But this is more of a philosophical question. While Cadillac's products have been improving would you want to explain why you picked an ATS to your friends and family over the others? While some publications have said the ATS is a performer do you really think it outdoes the likes of the competition?
That said we have a little interesting game for you to play.
First, we're curious if you'd pony up nearly $50 large for a Cadillac ATS.
Second, we'd love for you to pick FIVE other vehicles that you think would blow this away — if you do believe that there are five out there.
Third, rank 'em.
We're looking forward to seeing YOUR picks...
