Vehicle Overview

Over the past few years, Cadillac has been removing one old nameplate after another: Eldorado, Seville and now DeVille. All have been consigned to the dustbin, at least for now, as Cadillac seeks a new audience with three-letter model designations.

For 2006, a new front-wheel-drive sedan called the DTS replaces the long-lived DeVille. Recently, the DTS has been the top-level model in the DeVille series. For about two decades, the DeVille has accounted for nearly half the sales in its segment.

Introduced at the 2005 Chicago Auto Show, the new DTS is offered with a single-model strategy. That means one exterior and one interior, with multiple option packages available.

Six airbags are installed, and one of two Northstar V-8s powers the DTS. Sales are expected to begin in fall 2005.
