Precise dimensional accuracy

Cadillac DTS / Overview / Precise dimensional accuracy

Engineers developed and adhered to hundreds of criteria points when developing the DTS, and the result is outstanding fit, finish and overall harmony of the elements.

Fit, flushness and gaps are on a par with the best executions in the world. Interior gaps are 5 millimeters or less, with the vast majority less than 2 mm. The exterior of the DTS has extremely tight surface-to-surface relationships, making it appear as if it were crafted from a single piece of billet steel. Such refinement is evidenced in hood to fascia gaps that are a mere 4 mm, fender-to-headlamp relationships of less than 1 mm, hood-to-fender relationships within 1 mm, and taillamp-to-decklid relationships of less than 2 mm.
