4. Cadillac ATS
If you don’t remember the ATS don’t feel too bad, because the big Cadillac sedan hasn’t been much of a success. The brand, in general, has had trouble selling its sedans in light of competition from the Germans and the Japanese. The ATS is a big sedan, and it looked to take some of the loyal DTS buyers. But the ATS isn’t available with a V8 engine. The sedan also has an oddball style to it that has not settled in with consumers. You might be wondering what does the ATS offer? Well, aside from the size advantage, the ATS is slim on features.
You can get a comparable luxury car for much less. Even the CTS costs less and offers more than its stablemate. The ATS has been relegated to rental-car fleets in recent years, and the 2020 model year is going to be one of its final. There was a good amount of excitement around the ATS when it first hit the market, but that quickly wore off as the sedan lost its luster. The infotainment center is aged, and the sedan just doesn’t offer anything innovative in the way of features.
Cadillac is going to be phasing their sedans out in favor of crossovers. The ATS is the first to get the chopping block. The 2020 model year is going to be an uneventful one for the ATS, to say the least.
