To better compete with its German rivals on the US market, Cadillac is releasing a series of important updates for the current ATS and CTS. For the 2016 models, Cadillac adds new fuel-saving technologies. Active Fuel Management and Automatic Stop/Start technologies, and widespread use of a new 8-speed transmission, are combining to raise fuel economy ratings and reduce emissions. This is very important now, considering the emissions scandal. 

Cadillac’s all-new six-cylinder engine contains Active Fuel Management, or cylinder deactivation, technology enabling it to switch from six-cylinder to four-cylinder operation. The new 3.6-liter engine is part of the 2016 ATS, CTS and Escalade product lines. The luxury SUV’s V8 will shift to four-cylinder operation, as will Cadillac’s high performance CTS-V sedan. 

Whats more important, Cadillac’s Twin Turbo-powered CT6 will use the world’s only six-cylinder engine to combine turbocharging with cylinder deactivation and Stop/Start technology.

Cadillac’s ATS and CTS also offer a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the most popular choice among buyers. These models also see fuel economy improvements in 2016 via the use of Automatic Start/Stop, or AutoStop, technology. This system reduces emissions and fuel consumption by automatically turning off the engine when the car is stationary, such as at red light.

Cadillac’s new 8-speed transmission nets another efficiency gain, and like the new V6 engine, just started production in the 2016 ATS and CTS.

The result is cleaner and more fuel-efficient Cadillac models. CO2 output has been reduced up to 6 percent on 2016 ATS and CTS models.
