It shouldn't hurt any to run Dexos R, Dexos R is the new spec that supercedes Dexos2 in high performance applications. Dexos2 is still used in Euro gasoline cars and some light duty diesels. Your ATS-V should call for Dexos1 Gen2 which means you should use Dexos1Gen2 or Dexos1Gen3 oil to comply with the manual, however there should be no problem running Dexos R in your car.

Thank you for your well thought-out answer. Much appreciated

interestingly they don't recommend or show it can be used instead of the Dexos 1 your car's engine was spec'd for (currently Dexos 1 Gen3)...I believe even the newest CT4-V Blackwing spec's 5W-30 Dexos 1 Gen2/3 and not the Dexos R
