Nothing short of a revolution in products is unfolding at Cadillac, the elite brand from General Motors. First evidence of the metamorphosis at Cadillac occurred with the debut of CTS -- Cadillac Touring Sedan -- a sports sedan packing the first manual stick on a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) Caddy in half a century. Then came the XLR, a sleek two-seat sports car showing edgy body forms in the package of a luxurious hardtop coupe that drops its lid with the push of a console switch. XLR was followed in 2005 by a new rendition of the Seville Touring Sedan -- STS -- conformed as a muscular mid-size sport tourer in bold format.

Yet more powerful engines are planned at Cadillac as this brand develops a series of big-engine muscle cars crafted by GM's new Performance Division, sort of a tuner shop charged with pumping up racy versions of GM production models. Short-range model strategy at Cadillac indicates a tuner-style V-badged version due for several models in the Cadillac line.

Another new face for Cadillac comes in 2006 with fresh styling for Cadillac's full-size sedan badged as DTS (DeVille Touring Sedan). A front-wheel-drive (FWD) DTS will replace the DeVille series in Cadillac's line with styling more closely attuned to CTS and STS. DTS will be a showcase for Cadillac automotive technology. And its engine -- a NorthStar V8 -- will offer two configurations with output of either 275 hp or 290 hp.
