2016 Cadillac ATS and CTS Score Much-Needed BLACK PACKS!



So, so thrilled to see this easy and effective design change for the Cadillac CTS and ATS.  We have griped tirelessly about their tacky chrome, ugly wheels and "boring, old-man style."   And it looks like Cadillac was listening!  (See CT6 Black Pack and ATS Coupe Black Pack renders...)

The new Black Chrome Packages for the ATS and CTS are fairly comprehensive, too. Wheels, trims, grille finishes, window surrounds.... all take a bath in this stylish new dark pewter finish.

The third reason we love the Black Pack announcement?

Shock!

Cadillac has succumbed to major GM think in its model releases.  This means three or four atrocious digital renderings for the pre-launch.  Then a few fake "photos" of the cars in the wild for the market launch.  And that is it for many models.  The problem with all this digital fakery is that you cannot tell what the car actually looks like, good or bad.

But for the ATS and CTS Black Pack rollout, we have actual, honest-to-goodness photos.  Two dozen of them!

Well done, Cadillac.  Actual changes to move the metal.  Bravo.
