The Cadillac ATS-V is a high performance version of the Cadillac ATS compact sports sedan/coupe. The ATS-V series includes two body styles, which feature a turbocharged DOHC V-6 engine and a sport-tuned suspension. The ATS-V sedan and coupe were introduced for the 2016 model year.

The sedan with the automatic transmission can reach 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.7 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 189 mph (304 km/h). The ATS-V is RWD and powered by a LF4 3.6L twin turbocharged V6 producing 464 horsepower and 445 lb⋅ft (603 N⋅m) of torque.

Motor Trend conducted a comparison between the BMW M3, ATS-V, and Mercedes-AMG C63-S. The Cadillac managed to accelerate faster than both German vehicles and was the fastest around Willow Springs International Motorsports Park; it was also the least expensive in the test.

Cadillac competed at the Pirelli World Challenge from 2015 to 2017 with the Cadillac ATS-V.R, a racecar based on the ATS-V under the GT3 regulations, developed in collaboration with Pratt & Miller. Johnny O'Connell won the championship in 2015, finished fourth in 2016 and sixth in 2017. In addition, Michael Cooper finished third in 2016 and second in 2017.
