There will be a new nose--complete with a different look to the grille and retrimmed headlights--some bulking up of the fenders and a reconfigured rear end. The most noticeable among the revisions is the grille, which sports fewer bands and has an oversize Cadillac badge in the center. Overall, the differences add up to a slightly more edgy appearance, balanced by the softer surfaces of the carryover doors and roof. Changes to the rear of the car might be more difficult to discern. The relocated license plate eliminates the bright metal frame that now sits on the decklid. The reversing lights are in the new, flat bumper face. The trunklid boasts a large Cadillac crest and wreath, matching the one in the grille. Slight changes in the rear fenders are the result of revisions in the size of the taillights and a new arrangement for the bumper.<p>Perhaps more meaningful than the DeVille's new looks is what is not new--its drivetrain. Unlike other new Cadillacs, the DeVille remains purely front-wheel drive. The DeVille can continue to share its chassis with the Buick LeSabre.</TD></TR></TABLE>

The DTS will probably be the closest thing to the Lexus LS430. Most people will not mind the fact that it is FWD. The STS competes with the GS 430, BMW 540i, E-Class, M45 and Audi A6. The DTS will move upmarket away from the Lincoln Town Car to compete with the more high tech luxury of the LS. It will not be as refined, but will win plenty of buyers while Cadillac developes a RWD version for the end of the decade.

If cadillac does not improve on that ancient looking interior, IMO people would run down market to the STS. I just hope the next RWD DTS looks very close to the sixteen concept.

So this competes with the big guns such as the 7 Series, S-Class, A8 and the LS430? Geez, it's gonna have a hard time taking it up to those powerhouses. And it's FWD? Good luck... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bonk.gif" BORDER="0">

The interior is being redesigned at the same time to update the look and materials. This competes with the pure luxury cars out there (somewhere between the Town Car and the the LS430).... not the big gun luxo/sports sedans like the A8, 7 Series and S-Class. Also, keep in mind that many who purchase this car could care less if it is FWD or RWD. Those who want RWD will go straight to the STS.

back when the Deville was " redesigned" and received night vision, cadillac was adamant about the car competing favorably w/ the S-Classe and740iL ( this was back in 2000/01 ) at least they can make an honest claim w/ the STS <p>STS looks really good in motion, less so parked strangely

The LS 430 is a unique vehicle. It does compete with big guns on features, content, quality and possibly status... but it is not a performance sedan like the 7 Series and A8. The S-Class is more luxury than the 7 Series and A8, but is more performance oriented than the LS430.<p>The new DTS and current Deville for that matter also straddles the line between boat and luxury sports sedan. The DTS is more luxury than the big guns and doesn't compete at the same status level of the Big guns, but it is more in keeping with the performance of an LS 430 than the Lincoln Town Car. To say that the new DTS compares to the Town Car is not a far statement when comparing performance. The DTS clearly out performes the Lincoln in every area. It also has a higher feature and luxury content than the outdated Lincoln. Therefore, it is same to compare the DTS as a competitor to the LS430.<p>Not the same, but definitely in the ballpark.

This model is supposed to compete against all the major players in the luxury market. If Cadillacs recent products are anything to go by, It will definitely be a step in the right direction, but won't quite come up to the standard of the competition.

Its a good crossing bridge between now and next generation model. They threw a budget at it and fixed some things and added some features. And of course Caddy is way better than Lincoln line-up, that can be said about every Caddy model.

I couldn't agree more. Cadillac has left Lincoln in the dust. The new Toyota Avalon is closer to competing with Lincoln than Lincoln is to competing with Cadillac.

This is your personal opinion... but the dramatic increase in sales for Cadillac tell a much different story. The Escalade and CTS have already proven themselves as huge automotive hits. The SRX and STS are gaining momentum and winning awards and acolades.<p>If you don't like them, then you don't have to buy them.

The only reason this car looks the way it does is because it has so much armoring it could probably survive a nuclear attack! The real car will sit lower and have a more convetional cabin. The president's other limo has the same design.

<B>Cadillac Unveils the 2006 Cadillac DTS Presidential Limousine for George Bush's Inauguration</B><p><I>Presidential Limousine To Debut New 2006 Cadillac DTS Design <p>Cadillac DTS Presidential Limousine reveals the design direction during Inaugural Parade<p>WASHINGTON This week, a jet-black, state-of-the-art Cadillac DTS limousine will roll through the nations capital during the Presidential Inaugural Parade revealing publicly for first time the new design direction for the 2006 Cadillac DTS production model. <p>Similar to the new DTS, the limousine makes a bold styling statement by incorporating Cadillacs contemporary design cues to the front and rear portions of the vehicle. Redesigned front and rear fascias integrate Cadillacs signature egg-crate grille with center-mounted wreath and crest badge, jewel-like vertically oriented high-intensity xenon headlamps and state-of-the-art LED tail lamps.<p>George W. Bush, the President of the United States of America will be the first to travel in the new Cadillac DTS limousine during the parade route along Pennsylvania Avenue on Thursday, January 20. The sight of the president waving from a Cadillac has become a tradition in Americana. <p>General Motors and Cadillac are proud to write this latest chapter in American automotive history with the introduction of the DTS presidential limousine," said General Motors Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner. "We are pleased that our historic relationship with the U.S. government and chief executive office has continued through the years.<p>With a new design and unique construction under the skin, the new Cadillac DTS limousine is handcrafted and dressed in a jet-black clearcoat finish. The vehicle is a considerably longer, wider and taller version of the production model that becomes available later this year. To maintain national security, the limousines are equipped with state-of-the-art protection and communication systems. <p>The vehicle interior boasts six-passenger seating with comfort and visibility for all occupants. A rear seat executive package features a concealed, foldaway desktop that can be deployed when conducting affairs of state. The rear seats have an adjustable reclining feature along with the adaptive seat system, which senses the position of the occupant in the seat and automatically adjusts the cushion for added comfort. Moreover, rear seat passengers can enjoy their own premium sound system complete with a 10-disc CD changer. Wood accents, rich blue leather and cloth complete the executive interior. <p>An embroidered presidential seal is positioned in the center of the rear seat back panel, as well as on each rear door trim panel. Presidential seals are also affixed to the exterior rear doors. The U.S. flag is placed on the right front fender, and the presidential standard is located on the left front fender when the president travels in the vehicle. Flush-mounted High Intensity Discharged (HID) spotlights illuminate the flags at night.<p>The 2006 Cadillac DTS production model is set to make its first public appearance at the Chicago Auto Show in early February. <p>The DTS marks the ninth new vehicle introduced into the Cadillac portfolio since 2001 and aligns with Cadillacs alpha naming strategy established by the CTS, SRX, XLR and STS vehicles. Evolving from three models DeVille, DHS and DTS with exterior and interior differentiation, the DTS will incorporate a single-model strategy with one exterior and various option packages. <p>From its Cadillac-signature styling to its power and refined ride characteristics, the DTS is a product of unwavering attention to detail which builds on the strengths and appeal of the Cadillac brand. <p>Source: General Motors</I><p><IMG SRC="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_01.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_01.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://automobilemag.com/news/...1.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_03.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_03.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://automobilemag.com/news/...3.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_04.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_04.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://automobilemag.com/news/...4.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_05.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_05.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://automobilemag.com/news/...5.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_06.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_06.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://automobilemag.com/news/...6.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_02.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_02.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://automobilemag.com/news/...2.jpg</A><p><IMG SRC="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_07.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><A HREF="http://automobilemag.com/news/0501_2006_george_bush_cadillac_dts_presidential_li mousine_07.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://automobilemag.com/news/...7.jpg</A><p>Source: <A HREF="http://www.AutomobileMag.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.AutomobileMag.com</A>

(If I am correct) The Lexus sells more LS 430s than the Mercedes s class, BMW 7 series, Audi A8 and Infiniti Q45 in the US. So how does Cadillac plan to go up against the LS and win? Plus at same time Cadillac launches the DTS the Lexus LS and Mercedes S class will be redesigned. I like Cadillac but sounds like they are committing suicide. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/cwm13.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Is it just me or does the frond wind shield of the DTS look very large.<BR><BR>

Doesn't seem to me that the DTS is a competitor of the LS430 or S-Class in any facet other than size. In fact, the DTS is sort of downmarket of the STS, as far as price. On that note, I really don't think Cadillac has a car that can compete on that premium level.... yet. Like I said above, I hope we see the Sixteen in some form soon.<p>As for the windshield, it probably looks bigger because the Presidential Limo - as said in the article - is much wider and taller than the production version. I'm sure the real car will look much less offensive.

found on BBC about the current cadillac one<br>Licence: USA 1<p> <p> As the most powerful man in the world, President George W Bush can afford to travel in style. But he also needs security, something that doesnt usually go hand-in-hand with comfort or aesthetics (have you ever seen a bullet-proof vest on a catwalk?).<p> Cadillac One, the presidential limousine, is perhaps the only automobile that combines all these elements. Designed and built by Cadillac and the GM Specialty Vehicle Group, its considered the safest, most luxurious and most technologically advanced car in the world.<p>The vehicle shares its exterior design with the 2001 DeVille production model though it's actually higher, longer and wider. At 4 tons, its also a lot heavier. But looks can be deceptive. No matter how loaded you are, you wont be able to pick up a motor like this from a showroom.<p> Exterior<br>With its short bonnet and boot, long body and subtle curves, Cadillac One is a big car (exact specifications are kept secret) but one that exudes power. In front of enthusiastic crowds, it tends to crawl along to maximise the opportunities for a good presidential wave. But if the crowd is jeering rather than cheering, the black beast can flash past in a blur. Its top speed is undisclosed though estimated at 200mph minimum.<p>As with nearly all former presidential limos, the paintwork is a shiny jet black. The US flag flies on the passenger-side front fender with a presidential standard flown opposite. Both flags are illuminated by small lights installed in the fenders.<p>The bullet-proof windscreen, side and back windows are darkly tinted but not completely opaque. If George Bush was eating pretzels on the back seat, youd be able to see him but if one got stuck in his throat and his faced turned blue, you wouldnt be able to tell. Fortunately, its quite likely that pretzels are off the menu these days, so this isnt a situation youre ever likely to encounter.<p> The Presidential Seal<br> Interior<br>Very few people get to sit inside Cadillac One. It can contain seven in comfort maybe 50 in an unauthorised world record attempt. Those that do make it inside, find themselves in a hermetically sealed cabin, surrounded by rich blue leather and cloth with polished wood fittings. The presidential seal is embroidered in the middle of the centre back seat, as well as on the inner panels of each door (its also on the outside of the back doors).<p>The rear seats, which are set slightly higher than the others, can be reclined and adjusted in a multitude of ways for comfort and have massaging, adaptive cushions. They also contain a concealed foldaway desk which Dubya uses for affairs of state. But when the paperwork is done and the President needs to relax after some vigorous crowd-pleasing, he can sit back and listen to an in-car sound system thatd have most people weeping with joy. It even has a 10-disc CD changer, so he can listen to his Johnny Cash albums without lifting a finger as the limo speeds, unscathed, through a ring of fire.<p> Security<br>And yes, this hi-tech wonder really could survive such treatment. National security is inbuilt: Cadillac One is equipped with state-of-the-art protection and communication systems. Its infrared object detection system gives the chauffer complete night vision so he can drive at high speed in the darkest conditions; its five inch ballistic armour plating is tough enough to resist rocket-attacks; and the tyres will carry on working even if theyre riddled with sniper bullets.<p>Thats just the stuff we know about. Without a doubt, this gas-guzzling road fortress is also packed with the very latest top secret anti-terrorist devices. For a start, its rumoured to have a full ammunition arsenal. Does that mean James Bond-style concealed rocket launchers?<p>Who knows? But one things for sure; with Cadillac One, truth is stranger than fiction.<br><A HREF="http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/news/7oclocknews/features/cadillac_181103.shtml" TARGET="_blank">http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/...shtml</A>

It can't be 200 miles - maybe kilometers per hour. 200 miles would be insane - all the metal in that thing, not to mention brick aerodynamics.<p>That being said this thing is ugly as poo. The chop Charger did does look better with the lower roofline, but it still has odd proportions. Looks like it was made of Lego too. The spy photos with all the cladding actually looked better cause at least your eyes were picturing something nicer underneath.<p>I love how the Canadian Prime Minister gets driven in an Impala too. It was funny cause when I saw Bush's motorcade in Halifax, there was literally 20 Bush support cars, and at the end there was like a Budjet Rent-a-Lincoln Navigade which I presume the PM was in.
