Cadillac DeVille Models and DeVille History

Derived from French meaning of the town and originally arrived to carriages, de Ville was adopted by Cadillac in the late 1940s. Eventually becoming a single word under the General Motors luxury brand, the name DeVille brand was continuously used as Cadillacs expression of stylish luxury. In 1994, the Cadillac DeVille entered a seventh-generation redesign accepting the vehicle as a large front-wheel drive sedan. In 1998, the Cadillac DeVille was fresh off a relatively recent styling refresh and was powered by a 4.6-liter Northstar V-8 engine. Available output amounts of 275 and 300 horsepower were offered on the 1998 DeVille. Providing a high-class luxury ride, the 1998 Cadillac DeVille can hold up to six passengers with an available front bench seat. Outfitted with increased luxury equipment as well as some exclusive details, the DeVille is offered in dElegance and Concours trim. In 2000, the Cadillac DeVille sedan received a complete redesign and reengineered vehicle. Riding on a longer 115.3-inch wheelbase, the new 2000 DeVille included a sharpened luxury style and was one of the world production vehicles to include LED taillights. The Cadillac Northstar V-8 engine continued to power the 2000 DeVille channeling power through a four-speed automatic. Standard equipment found on the DeVille included tri-zone climate control, automatic rear level control suspension, electronic compass and OnStar. Optional equipment on the Cadillac DeVille consisted of a six-disc CD changer and an ultrasonic rear parking assist system. A greater selection of standard and optional equipment was offered on the DHS and DTS versions of the DeVille. Several changes were made to the DeVille line-up between 2000 and 2005. A classic nameplate within Cadillac, DeVille was retired by the luxury car brand after the 2005 model year. Cadillacs largest sedan was named the DTS starting in 2006.
