Beneath the lightweight V-forged wheels lie massive best-in-class standard, race-inspired six-piston front, four-piston rear, fixed-caliper Brembo® brakes with vented rotors for incredible stopping power. Brake ducts cool the ferritic nitrocarburized (FNC) rotors – our patented rotor coating that inhibits corrosion while improving performance and appearance.
Specifically designed for the ATS-V, 18" Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport summer-only tires2 with a progressive tread and tri-compound patch have a custom molded shape for maximum grip, stopping power and high-speed control.
By anticipating the next gearshift and RPMs, Active Rev Matching eliminates the traditional heel-toe shifting technique. Simply engage the clutch, select the next gear and enjoy a perfectly matched shift for smoother acceleration and a refined driving experience.
The class-exclusive V-tuned, temperature adapting Magnetic Ride Control suspension reads and reacts to the road up to 1,000 times per second — providing the precise amount of control for maximum performance and the smoothest ride in all conditions.
Power-to-weight ratio is substantially improved with the selective and precise use of carbon fiber. A lighter hood is a major contributor to the ideally balanced weight ratio that a high-performance vehicle requires.
One of the many signature features of the ATS-V is the quad exhaust. It integrates baffling for acoustic refinement at lower speeds while generating a visceral roar when opened up – amplifying the 3.6L Twin Turbo.
An additional level of refinement is achieved with the use of exposed carbon fiber accents enhanced with a contrasting silver weave. It dramatically adds a sport-inspired atmosphere to the handcrafted cut-and-sewn interior.
The ATS-V’s magnesium paddle shifters help make performance shifting exact and light to the touch. By offering the control of a manual transmission, this highly responsive feature puts power at the driver’s fingertips.
Four distinct drive modes, (Tour, Sport, Track & Snow/Ice*), electronically calibrate a variety of performance features, optimizing and customizing your drive to suit conditions.
Record, share and analyze your track driving experiences with the available Performance Data Recorder. Capturing video, in-cabin audio and performance metrics including 0-to-60, lap times and g-force. With best-in-class integration and capability, PDR makes good drivers great, and great drivers unstoppable.
Change lanes with added confidence. As part of the available Driver Awareness Package, Side Blind Zone Alert warns if a vehicle enters your blind spot. An amber icon in the exterior mirror illuminates as a vehicle enters into the sensors’ range, letting you know you should wait to make a lane change.
The class-exclusive Safety Alert Seat subtly and discreetly sends vibrations through the seat cushion on the left, right or both sides, alerting you* to a variety of potential hazards and the direction they’re coming from.
