The perfect of engineering prowess and sophisticated has made DeVille the best-selling car in America for 15 straight years. redesigned for 2000, the all-new, DeVille has met and exceeded expectations its debut. The 2001 DeVille two new technological innovations wîth customer benefits by offering two new Infotainment wîth Bose system and new services from The Infotainment wîth Bose system, the first Web-based system, will be offered as an mid-year on the DHS and DTS models. The infotainment offers myriad on- and off-line through the integration of a computer, system, CD-ROM and radio OnStar, the revolutionary information and service that debuted on models, expands its services to Personal Calling and Virtual technology.

Blending engineering and sophisticated styling, DeVille its status as the best-selling luxury car in

Strong Buyer Demand for DHS

and DTS ‘The reception to the new DeVille has extra ordinary,’ said Brand Manager Patrick ‘Demand has been especially for our two up-level models, DTS and DHS, offer a host of intuitive including the Cadillac-exclusive Night ultrasonic rear parking LED taillights, and standard OnStar.

DeVille’s overall trim, and cosmopolitan appearance remains for 2001, however Cadillac customers an additional choice for and interior color. At the beginning of the model year, customers have the choice of Graphite as an color and Dark Gray for leather.

DeVille is renowned for levels of comfort and convenience, features such as standard climate control, adaptive massaging lumbar seats and a center seat and storage In addition, when redesigning the particular effort was focused on what may be the world’s most and comfortable rear-seat environment on the incorporating features such as seating layout for optimum visibility, heated seats and lumbar adjustments.

The ’01 also offers a new tire monitoring system, which sensors in the wheels to read air levels. The vehicle’s central feeds the data to an information located on the instrument panel. The is displayed according to tire allowing the driver to determine the location of the problem.

These enhance DeVille’s package of active safety and security Add to these proven safety-cage leading-edge passive restraints and a navigation system and the 2001 could arguably be the safest car on the


The DeVille has been the luxury car in America for the past 15 The redesigned DeVille will to lead the full-size luxury car in the future by attracting two groups of pre-boomers and boomers. Pre-boomers DeVille’s traditional customer while boomers are gradually a dominant force in the luxury

And according to dealer feedback, the DeVille is now reaching the boomer

‘We have the best we have ever had, and as a younger, more sophisticated are coming to Cadillac,’ said Sewell, owner of Sewell Cadillac Co. Inc. in Dallas.

By almost 40 percent of the buyers in §egmènt will be boomers, of whom have driven at some time. These are accustomed to commuting and working hours, and they often to find a balance in their They appreciate understated and technology — especially technology to make their busy easier.

Although DeVille is intended for the North American it will also satisfy demand for chauffeur-driven sedans in the East, Japan and other

The DeVille is available in three — DeVille, DeVille High Sedan (DHS) and DeVille Sedan (DTS).


In Cadillac becomes the first to Web-enabled infotainment technology. The called the Infotainment wîth audio system, offers on- and off-line capabilities through the of a computer, navigation system, and radio functions.

The infotainment integrates complete full-function map-based navigation wîth CD-ROM, compact flash and audio playback.

The system is controlled, which again the Cadillac philosophy of ‘eyes on the hands on the wheel.’ Drivers can wîth the system’s many including:

• E-mail capability – your e-mail downloaded and to you. The system provides a to the Internet, allowing downloading of files. This particular will be test-marketed in several of the country to gauge customer

• Cell phone integration – Docks a portable cell and allows cell phone via voice recognition or front keypad.

• Infrared port – function allows handheld such as personal data to exchange information wîth the

• CD/CD-ROM drive – Plays CDs, reads CD-ROM such as maps and allows upgrades.

• Voice memo – Voice messages may be recorded, and played back at a later

• Voice recognition – Occupants can and control the system through command.

• Navigation – Drivers can a destination and have turn-by-turn read to them, as well as see a map of the display.

Importantly, except for station information in radio or navigation turn-by-turn information, the menus for e-mail and browser are disabled unless the vehicle is – a built-in safety feature to minimize the time drivers’ are off the road and hands off the wheel.


In to the myriad powertrain and integrated systems that provide active safety benefits to the there are additional safety in the ’01 DeVille.

New on the DTS and DHS is an interior trunk release mechanism. factory-installed device provides for exit in the event a child is inside the trunk. A T-shaped attached to a six-inch cable is on the underside of the decklid, connected to the latch, allowing for easy wîth a simple tug and pull The release mechanism will mid-year and will be standard on models.

In addition, a tire monitor debuts as an option on the Similar to the system used on the Corvette, it consists of a sensor into the valve stem of tire. The sensors are battery-powered and tire pressure information to the radio frequency module. this module receives from the sensors, it sends pressure information to the driver center for display. The driver center responds by showing the tire pressure and rating it ‘high’ or ‘OK.’ If the pressure is too or too high, the driver information will also display the ‘check tire pressure.’

The DHS and DTS feature the next generation wiper system. Rainsense activates the wipers in wet weather the system is placed in the auto mode. The new system is smaller, efficient and more sensitive for performance.


DeVille’s flowing exterior form a balance between formal and The chiseled shear lines of the DeVille are a design feature will be even more in Cadillacs of the immediate future.


The recognizable Cadillac begins wîth a shield-shaped at the front, which has been for a more aerodynamic look. A emphasis on the chrome horizontal molding is another design that will continue future Cadillacs. Cadillac’s and crest insignia has an aerodynamic while maintaining center prominently in the grille, or atop the in models equipped wîth Vision.

A tilt and telescope adjustment is on DHS and offered as an option wîth the setting system on the DTS. A §teering wheel wîth HVAC and radio controls is on the DeVilles, wîth a wood package standard on the DHS and optional on the


Changes to the DeVille’s renowned Northstar V8 in enable it to operate cleaner, and more efficiently wîth a increase in highway EPA mileage from 1999.

One result of improvements is that the 2001 is certified for sale nationwide as a low vehicle (LEV). This was by means of a reaction-heated catalyst, wîth reduced crevice and a new combustion chamber design.

the basic engine architecture a predominantly aluminum 4.6-liter 32-valve V8, major design have been incorporated to lower emissions, excellent wîth regular fuel, and quieter operation.

The DeVille’s recommendation changed in 2000 premium (93 octane, lead-free) to (87 octane, lead-free), resulting in a reduction in operating expense. To this gain, the Northstar’s ratio was lowered from to 10.0:1.

Power And Torque

The dual-overhead-camshaft Northstar V8 in the DeVille and DHS 275 horsepower (205 kW) at 5600 rpm and 300 (407 Nm) of torque at 4000 The sportier DTS is equipped wîth a version of the Northstar V8 producing 300 (224 kW) at 6000 rpm and 295 lb.-ft. Nm) of torque at 4400 rpm.

The engines offer 100,000-mile km) durability and limp-home mode in of total coolant loss. The maintenance-free design requires no — only changing the oil, oil and air filter — until the DeVille 100,000 miles (160,000 In limp-home mode, the engine can on four cylinders at speeds of 50 mph (80 for about 50 miles (80 kilometers), the driver an opportunity to reach a location. The engine accomplishes by alternately delivering fuel to of the eight cylinders. The remaining cylinders do not fire, but continue to air, which cools the

On all DeVille models, the 4T80-E is linked to the engine via a viscous clutch, which ensures operation by reducing torque when the torque converter is applied. The 4T80-E also equal-length drive axles, limit torque steer by angle differences from to side as the car accelerates.

Ride And Continuously Variable Road-Sensing 2.0

DeVille’s new chassis architecture the flexibility to provide various system variations to suit customer tastes. DeVille and DHS are equipped wîth luxury tuning that emphasizes quality while providing handling characteristics.

DTS is equipped a more active suspension for sharper performance. The CVRSS 2.0 comes wîth three enhancements — transient roll lateral support and stability interaction.

CVRSS uses sensors to read road and fast-acting dampers at each of the car to continuously and instantly adjust and handling for any situation. At 65 mph, a can shift from full to full firm every 6 to 7 of road surface traveled. manages both body and motion. Damping is adjusted as to control heave (up and down over road swells), (front of car lifting while of car dives, or vice versa), in corners, and front-end lift acceleration. On very smooth damping forces are minimized to isolation. To maintain ride and stability at high speeds, forces are increased wîth speed.

The extensive use of electronic chassis to manage §teering, braking, damping and traction functions means that more settings can be provided for every circumstance. It is not necessary to make such as comfort versus or agility versus stability. the car is quiet and smooth during the driver feels confidently in during emergency or aggressive maneuvers.

Four-Stage Valving

DHS and DTS all come equipped wîth shock absorber valving for body motion control sacrificing isolation. The new four-stage is used in all four DTS shock and in the front shock absorbers in DeVille and DHS.

Squeeze-cast road wheels provide the mass-effective wheels available superior surface finish. and DHS are equipped wîth Michelin all-season radials — size — which provide very low resistance for excellent fuel White sidewall radials are as an option. DTS is equipped wîth Eagle LS P235/55HR-17 blackwall performance radials.

DeVille’s brake system, traction and StabiliTrak systems are combined in a new Electronics-Bosch 5.3 design that is and lighter than the 5.0 design it A significant feature wîth system is electronic brake In place of a fixed front-to-rear of braking effort for all vehicle and operating conditions, the electronic uses wheel-speed sensors and controls to adjust and optimize dynamically. Stopping distances are especially in the heavily loaded when more rear effort is desired. Electronic effort distribution also handling during braking-while-turning

Stabilitrak 2.0

Maybach DSH

StabiliTrak 2.0, an version of the most advanced stability control system in the is standard in DTS and offered as an option on and DHS. The improvements on this version include side-slip control and active §teering compensation.

Introduced on three Cadillac models in the 1997 year, StabiliTrak provides an safety advance by helping the maintain control during or evasive maneuvers. StabiliTrak by comparing the driver’s intentions by §teering wheel position) how the vehicle is responding. Three key keep the ABS and traction control informed: one reads §teering angle, another reports the lateral acceleration and the third yaw rate (rotational velocity a vertical axis through the center of gravity). Information is gathered from vehicle

If the vehicle’s dynamic response not agree wîth the direction the is §teering, StabiliTrak goes to by selectively applying the individual brakes to help keep the car on the course. If the car is slipping wide of the path in a turn, applying the brake helps the DeVille tighter. In case of diminished at the rear causing the tail of the car to wide, activating the outside-front gently nudges the car back in StabiliTrak is automatic and requires no driver action. In most the driver probably won’t notice the helping hand this technically sophisticated

Respected car critics have StabiliTrak one of the greatest active advancements since four-wheel brakes. Únlike stability systems from other Cadillac’s system maintains the ability to apply throttle in maneuvers.


A vastly improved body is a major benefit of the DeVille’s to new vehicle architecture in 2000. The G is significantly stiffer in torsion and contributing to superb ride and performance, and improved crashworthiness.

The stiffness natural frequency has increased 21 percent in the DeVille. By the body structure as stiff as the suspension does a superior job of noise and road harshness the passenger compartment. Curb has been slightly reduced in all models, which allows feature content without an reduction in fuel economy. A of features have been to maximize stiffness without weight in the DeVille.

New analytical were used to identify of the body structure where thickness could be reduced little or no loss of performance. In engineers studied the interaction of masses within the car. As a some components were to optimize the design not only for but also to meet ride, and safety goals.


DeVille’s aluminum hood is 20 pounds lighter than a hood, and it contributes to reduced vibration, improved vehicle distribution and lower hinge during impact. Light, two cell extruded aluminum beams are rigidly mounted to component vibration and improve vehicle feel.

Lateral tie that connect the front rails are closed section to and strengthen the front structure and to crashworthiness in a forward collision. towers connect solidly to the panel to integrate DeVille’s end to the main cabin structure, load flow into the structure from suspension

Noise, Vibration Reduced

To shake and noise, the instrument and §teering column are supported by a magnesium cross-car beam. The column also is a magnesium eliminating idle shake at the wheel. Major body are filled wîth urethane-foam that expand to provide a that thoroughly blocks transmission and reverberation. The addition of a level of isolation between the wheels and the passenger compartment has in major reductions in rear-seat

The use of single-sided spot-welding eliminates the for large access holes in the structure that reduce and admit road noise. spot welding is difficult or structural adhesives help panels. For example, the roof is totally restrained by structural except for one spot weld at corner.

They address the customer need to stay to the office, home and the world on the road.’

Night Vision

the Persian Gulf War, technology enabled coalition forces to own the night battlefield. the introduction of Night Vision on the in 2000, Cadillac became the automaker to bring the safety of this technology to drivers.

vision at night is an important advancement. While nighttime represents only 28 percent of driving, it accounts for 55 percent of all fatalities, according to data the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA). Of all pedestrian 62 percent occur at night. In highway safety authorities more than 300,000 collisions in 1997, many of could have been wîth more time to to the hazard.

While Night is not meant to replace a driver’s out of the windshield, it gives drivers visual information beyond their eyes are capable of Night Vision helps the detect potentially dangerous well beyond the normal range.

Night Vision Driver to See Three-to-Five Times than Low-Beam, Headlights

The vision extends three-to-five the range of low-beam headlights and the range of high-beam headlights. At 60 per hour, normal headlights a driver about 3.5 seconds to to an object ahead. With Vision, the driver will up to 15 seconds to react. The system can help drivers see beyond the glare from oncoming

In addition, Night Vision can enhance personal security. For as a DeVille driver pulls a driveway, the system can help a person hiding in the bushes or out of the of the headlights.

Head-Úp Display

the virtual image is projected by a display (HÚD) rather on a flat screen mounted in the Cadillac’s Night Vision drivers keep their on the road and hands on the wheel. The is projected near the front of the hood — in the driver’s peripheral — and was designed not to obstruct the view of the

Night Vision is offered on the DHS and DTS

LED Taillight CHMSL

The auto first combination light diode (LED) taillight and high-mounted stoplamp (CHMSL) on the 2000 DeVille, bringing and security advantages, as well as more design flexibility. The Seville pioneered LEDs in the and LEDs are used on large trailers, but this is the first application in a vehicle intended for consumer use.

Reliability is one advantage of the LED taillights. Because last for thousands of hours, customers will probably have to service this of the car throughout its entire life.

A advantage of LEDs is a quicker time than possible an incandescent bulb. LEDs in 100 nanoseconds (a nanosecond is one-billionth of a versus the 200 milliseconds required for an bulb to light. At 60 mph, translates into an extra feet of warning to the driver enough to possibly prevent a when a panic stop is

Últrasonic Rear Parking

While Night Vision can DeVille drivers to see objects Últrasonic Rear Parking is designed to help them their vehicles while in This optional system both audio and visual to convey information on the closeness of behind the vehicle, assisting the in rear parking maneuvers. The can help prevent low-speed wîth objects such as sign posts or other

Developed by Bosch, the system an array of four ultrasonic located on the bumper fascia. approximately 18 inches apart and 24 inches off the road surface, the are active any time the vehicle’s is below 3 miles per hour in gear. The effective field of is from about 10 inches off the up to about the top of the trunk.


G-Based DeVille’s G-based architecture is a design, a configuration that has to be highly predictable in the hands of drivers. To achieve the overall necessary for outstanding maneuverability at the of adhesion, weight has been rearward where possible. For the DeVille’s hood is aluminum and its is located beneath the rear

The DeVille body structure a safety cage around the compartment, providing protection in a of front, side and rear At the same time, structural at the front and the rear are engineered to in a controlled manner, reducing the transmitted to the interior. In a severe collision, DeVille’s powertrain is to move downward and under the floor, minimizing its intrusion the passenger space. A key element of the cage is a single hydroformed that sweeps from the of the windshield over the front to the B-pillar. This stiffens the and is particularly effective in resisting crush.

A single-piece door design is resistant to side-impact Door hems are offset to overlap, helping ensure doors can be opened after an

Windshield and back-window headers are roll-formed members to securely tie members of the car together and resist during a collision. Other reinforcements are positioned behind and the rear seat.

Reinforcements have been added in the rail area to enhance collision performance. Metal in the rocker area and up the A-pillar are to resist collapse when loads are concentrated on the driver’s of the car.

Extensive Testing

the federal government mandates barrier tests at 30 mph, GM 25 different tests at speeds up to 50 mph to that the DeVille’s body surpasses both government standards and more rigorous targets. Tests used a range of occupant sizes, three-year-old child dummies to percentile male crash

Air Bags

DeVille is equipped four air bags — front and air bags for front-seat occupants — as equipment. Front air bags are in the §teering wheel for the driver, and in the top of the panel for the front passenger. front driver and passenger air are a second-generation design wîth force inflation.

Built the outboard surface of each seat’s backrest bolster, air bags enhance upper-torso in the event of a severe lateral Because the driver’s side is occupied by an adult (while a child may be seated in the front seat), the driver’s side air bag is a larger second-generation design helps protect the torso.

air bags, unique to DeVille, are as optional equipment. Modules the folded air bags are mounted the outboard edge of the rear cushion. When triggered by sensor mounted in the B-pillar, an restraint helps guard torso-related injuries during a lateral collision. Testing small-stature instrumented dummies that there is no hazard to a resting wîth his or her head in the of the side-impact air bag.

Backup to air bags is provided if electrical is interrupted during a collision.
