2003 Cadillac DeVille - Price Quote

Visit Cadillac for more information on the Cadillac DeVille.

The 2003 Cadillac DeVille is Cadillac's largest offering to the luxury car market. With refined styling and a racer's heart, the Deville embodies the grace and quality of the luxury car market. In fact, Cadillac and the Deville has an important place as one of icons of our time, representative of class and style. The following will show that the 2003 does not simply rest on the laurels of its predecessors.

Available Models
The 2003 Cadillac DeVille is offered in a Base, DHS and DTS set with rising levels of luxury and performance. A variety of additional options are also available to the consumer with specific desires or functional considerations.

Interior Features
The 2003 Cadillac DeVille has a spacious interior that will accommodate five adults very comfortably on the plush leather upholstery. Tri-zone automatic climate controls mean that they can control their environment at the touch of a button while the interior air filter and excellent exterior sound-damping qualities lend to an extraordinarily comfortable and quiet ride, insulated from the world outside the windows.

Not surprisingly, most any feature you can think of is equipped on the 2003 Cadillac DeVille Base model; AM/FM/cassette/CD player, OnStar System, a power tilt/telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio, climate and cruise controls and, of course, a memory system with seat, mirrors, steering wheel, climate control and radio presets.
One level up, to the DHS model, gives a Bose AM/FM/weatherband/cassette/CD player, rain-sensing wipers, heated front seats, analog instruments, a power rear window sunshade and, to top it all off, front seat lumbar massage!

The DTS or DeVille Touring Sedan, is a little more oriented toward road-trip functionality. It takes away the memory settings, rear seat lumbar adjustment and some other comfort features but it adds the Continuously Variable Road-Sensing Suspension (CVRSS) for interior comfort.

Exterior Features
The 2003 Cadillac DeVille DTS has fog lights, alloy wheels and classic styling for 2003, replacing the chrome alloy wheels standard on the DHS.

Northstar engines continue to power the Cadillac line, with the DeVille Base and DHS possessing a dohc 4.6-liter V8 that pumps out 275 hp at 5600 rpm and 300 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. The DTS has a faster 4.6-liter/ 279-cu. inch Northstar V8 with 300 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 295 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm. Both have 4-speed automatic transmission capable of 18/27 mpg, (city/hwy).

All three models have traction control and the DTS model features stability control and the previously mentioned CVRSS.

Safety and Security
Both models address safety with dual front and side airbags, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, an antiskid system and optional on the DHS and DTS models, an infrared night driving system. Rear-obstacle detection and additional airbags are also available and a separate navigation system with 6.5-inch dashboard screen is newly available as an option on the base edition. This screen has voice recognition and can play DVDs, providing the transmission is in Park.
