Cadillac DTS Tidbits
- The Cadillac DTS was a replacement to the former Cadillac Deville, but was a much more luxurious vehicle than the other one. It was deemed to be one of the best of the GM automobiles because it came with extra gadgets and a sturdy foundation, which made the people love this ride.
- Even though the main design of the sedan was luxurious, the carmakers added a sporty feel to it, which made the vehicle an interesting one. One of the significant changes that GM did was when it took out the standard 6-passenger seating so that it could make room for smaller seats just like sports car are equipped with. Instead of the squared looking clock, the company changed it to a circular one. If you notice sports vehicles, they are manufactured with a similar design.
- The Cadillac DTS performed really well on the highway and displayed a lot of power for immediate passing maneuvers and easy high-speeding driving. In spite of the great speed, the suspension offered a safe ride for the driver and passengers. In fact, GM wanted the owners of the DTS to feel that they can drive the automobile with more delight, which was why they got rid of the old engine and replaced it with a 32V Northstar V8.
- One of the greatest things that came with the Cadillac DTS was its improved navigation system. The drivers were given the opportunity to control the commands and their travelling needs with the voice action control. The performance models also came in a Magnetic Ride Control option, which let the owner control the shock absorbers with the electromagnetic parts. The car sensors could also check the suspension for a smooth and safe journey.
- In 2005, there was a specially designed Cadillac DTS that was meant for the second inauguration of the US President George W. Bush. The Cadillac DTS Presidential State Car was codenamed Stagecoach and was crafted to have an advanced shell and safety features to greatly protect the president from various threats.
- The last Cadillac DTS was produced at 11:51am, May 27, 2011.
