FrontRunners: Extended Legacy

<< Back to Robb Report, October 2005

Cadillac (www.cadillac.com) has gained new adherents through its recent forays into the performance-car and SUV arenas, but large, comfortable, and conservative sedans such as the DeVille long have been a mainstay of its product line. For the 2006 model year, Cadillac has modified the DeVille just enough to rename it the DTS. Restrained and formal in appearance, the sedan refines the brand’s edgy design theme of recent years.
 
At more than 17 feet long, the DTS can accommodate six occupants and a surfeit of luggage. One of two versions of the 4.6-liter Northstar V-8 engine (depending on whether you prefer slightly more torque or slightly more horsepower) drives the front wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission. Performance is smooth, as are the ride and handling.
