Cadillac DTS / Overview / Safety refinements

Designed and engineered with occupant safety and protection in mind, the DTS reinforces Cadillac's long-standing reputation for safe occupant environments in premium vehicles.

The new 2006 DTS is equipped with a host of safety and security features, beginning with its body frame integral (BFI) construction; strategically engineered crumple zones in front and rear; and comprehensive use of high-strength steel. The vehicle's crashworthiness is enhanced with structural foam and nylon structural inserts strategically placed in areas of the vehicle's structure.

The DTS has six standard air bags, including an industry-first dual depth front passenger air bag. The GM co-patented technology deploys either a small or large air bag depending upon crash severity, seat belt usage and seat position.

The DTS is manufactured at GM's award-winning Detroit Hamtramck assembly center. Detroit-Hamtramck is recognized as the 2005 J.D. Power and Associates Bronze Award plant in North America and is a top 10 performer in initial quality worldwide.

The DTS arrives in Cadillac showrooms this fall. In addition to the U.S. and Canada , the DTS is exported for sale in Mexico , Taiwan , Korea , Japan , Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
