ATS 3.6 victorious over bmw 330i and mb 350 (motor trend)!! Nice!
I'd wondered when the ATS 3.6 would hit in a road test. It's the real deal and hot as a firecracker. All we'd seen to date were tests using the ATS 2.0 turbo 6 speed manual - of which in reality not so many will actually be sold. My dealer has both a ATS 2.0 turbo 6 speed automatic and ATS 3.6 in stock both completely loaded and within a very tight sticker price range. Even the EPA ratings are very close. Why go with the smaller engine? They're really pushing the base engine premium version with a nice lease deal.
I googled and found the Motor Trend article. The author didn't like CUE. My best friend owns a new XTS and used the video tutorial at his dealer to understand the system prior to taking delivery. He's 84 and seems fine with CUE. I drove his XTS and found it very comfortable and I like CUE. The rearview camera is excellent.
BMW's are just plain too much money for the car. And the Mercedes C Class is too small.
I have seen varying articles about cue. the majority believe it to be VERY well done. is it superior to the bmw and mb systems? bmw not close. dont know about benz. all in all, another nice win for gm!!!
