CADILLAC DeVille   1999 2005
1999 2005

After switching from the RWD to FWD in 1994, Cadillac renewed its DeVille model in 1999 as a 2000 model.
The new G-platform was stiffer than the previous K used for the 1994 model. The wheelbase was extended with 3 cm (1.2”), but the 4.6-liter Northstar engine and the 4-speed automatic transmission were kept.

The biggest changes were on the look. Either we are talking about the exterior or the inside of the vehicle, the 2000 DeVille is a new vehicle, not a facelifted one. The exterior had a fresh appearance, underlining Cadillac’s intention to attract younger buyers. Also, for that segment, a new trim level was introduced, named DTS (DeVille Touring Sedan). It had 17” wheels and a modern interior. For the regular Cadillac buyers, there was the DHS (DeVille High-Luxury Sedan) and the basic DeVille. An important improvement in the automotive industry introduced by the 2000 Cadillac was the introduction of LED taillights, which was a world’s first.

From the technology point of view, Cadillac offered thermal-imaging night-vision systems, a new navigation system, and new high-stability control and road-sensing suspension. The thermal-imaging system extends the visibility range three to four times beyond the normal headlights.

The 4.6-liter V8 engine was offered in two power outputs, 275 hp and 300 hp, respectively. But it was strange that Cadillac couldn’t offer a better automatic gearbox and only a 4-speed transmission was available.

The seventh generation of the DeVille was a mix of performance and luxury sedan for the North-American market.
It was still addressed to middle-aged and older customers.

Cadillac built a car long enough to offer enough legroom in the back, but with a front-wheel-drive to be easier to drive. To have a better impact on the market, it offered it only with two versions of its Northstar V8 engine, mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The DeVille look was associated with the mobster’s family with its long and wide hood and with the wide D-pillars in the back. The trunk looked like it could have room for at least two people side-by-side. The angular look with chromed grille and flat headlights offered an imposing presence on the road. The cast-aluminum wheels were standard for the Concours trim level.

Inside, the DeVille could accommodate up to six people on the front and rear benches. A front two-seat option was available. In the rear, the child-safety lock was standard so nobody could open the door from inside if that was engaged. Also, for safety reasons, the DeVille featured standard dual airbags, all-speed traction control, and ABS. The air-conditioning and stereo-cassette player were also standard fit, while the CD-player was an option.

Under the huge hood, the car-maker installed a choice of two V8 engines mated to a 4-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission. It was a front-wheel drive and that eased out the driving. With its soft and comfortable suspension, the DeVille was like a flying carpet on the road.
