Distinctive Cadillac styling; enough room inside to stretch out; comfortable ride.
The 2009 Cadillac DTS comes in five trim levels. Base trim is equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats, OnStar, bi-xenon headlamps, a power front seat, remote vehicle start and a CD/MP3 audio system with satellite radio.
Upper DTS trims add heat to the front and rear seats, the steering wheel, the windshield washer and the exterior mirrors. Also, on the upper trims the front seats are cooled and the driver's seat features memory settings. Front and rear parking assist, StabiliTrak and brake assist are also part of the upper trim equipment groups.
The DTS's interior is voluminous, with seating for five or six depending on whether a front bench or bucket seats are specified. In either configuration, passengers are ensconced in plush leather. You'll find generous legroom in any seating position, as well as a commodious 18.8-cubic-foot trunk.
The suspension is clearly tuned for smooth freeway cruising, but the DTS keeps its composure when the road turns twisty. Cadillac's Northstar 4.6L V8 delivers 275 smooth horsepower to the DTS's front wheels. In the top-line Performance trim, the engine is tweaked to deliver 292 horsepower, and the chassis features 18-inch alloy wheels on a sport suspension with self-adjusting shock absorbers.
Available safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes, traction control, an antiskid system and dual front, front-side and curtain-side airbags.
With excellent crash test ratings, respectable 15 city/23 highway mileage estimates, a long list of features, a strong powertrain and room for the whole family, the DTS remains a solid choice for the luxury car buyer set.
For 2009, the Cadillac DTS saw only minor changes, largely exterior colors and interior features.
Inside, the DTS boasts Generation 8.0 OnStar with Bluetooth handsfree connectivity, XM satellite NavTraffic, express-close sunroof and a repositioning of the seat heater/cooler switches. Also, the headrests have been redesigned and enlarged for improved safety, while the exterior mirrors feature brighter LED turn signal and Side Blind Zone indicators. Cadillac also introduced Ferritic Nitro-Carburizing (FNC) to the brake rotors, which keeps them from rusting. Finally, Radiant Silver and Gray Flannel replace Mystic Gray, Light Platinum, Sunset Blue, and Titanium ChromaFlair in the palette.
For traditional buyers of large luxury cars, the 2008 Cadillac DTS remains one of only a handful of choices. The front-wheel-drive DTS compares favorably against its rivals, with class-leading power and a larger, impressive interior. The DTS also offers plenty of luxury features and comfort for its $45,400 base price.
