2006 Cadillac DTS

Ever wish you could change your name and start all over?  That's pretty much what the Cadillac Deville did in 2006 by changing its name to the DTS and starting over as a new front wheel drive luxury sedan.  The Cadillac DTS improves on the Deville with a refurbished interior, smoother ride, and high-tech extras including heated seats and advanced climate control.   

The DTS uses a standard 4.6 L, 275 hp V8 engine with 4 speed automatic transmission and optional 4.6 L, 291 hp V8.  Expect to get 17 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway.  In addition, the DTS comes in 4 trims and has 4 doors, seats 5, and offers standard air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power/leather seats, cd player, ABS brakes, and traction control.  Options include stability control, navigation system, and sunroof.  The 291 hp V8 model goes from 0-60 mph in just under 7 seconds.

For now, it looks like the DTS has made an impressive debut in the eyes of experts and drivers alike.  Consumers especially appreciate the new design, which should attract a broader demographic than the retirees you'd typically see cruising around in a Deville.  Look for continuing updates as the DTS seeks to gain fans inside and outside the country.
