Cadillac ATS to bow its BMW-fightin' head at Detroit Auto Show

Mary Barra, the Senior VP of global product development for General Motors, speaking to the Automotive Press Association (APA) today in Detroit, said GM will debut four global concept or production vehicles at the Detroit Auto Show in January. Barra also let slip official news that one of the four will be the General's 3 Series-fighter based on their new rear-wheel drive architecture — the Cadillac ATS.

Although we expected this news, it now means that — along with the Acura NSX — there's now at least two vehicles relevant to enthusiasts being introduced at Detroit this year.
