It's the end of an era for the Cadillac Seville. 2004 will
be the last year the Seville is offered by Cadillac. In
anticipation, Cadillac has already discontinued the Seville
STS, retaining only the entry-level SLS to try and squeeze
out a few more purchases from devoted Seville enthusiasts.
The Cadillac Seville will not depart meekly, however. Though
there obviously aren't any major redesigns for the 2004
Cadillac Seville SLS, it is still at the forefront of comfort
and style, just as it has always been. A luxury car with
class, the Seville SLS will go out with its head held high.
The Seville SLS is the sole trim for 2004.
The four-door 2004 Cadillac Seville SLS is like other Cadillac
sedans in that it offers impressive interior space. Five
passengers fit easily on the inside.
Though interior equipment doesn't change from last year's
model, that is not to say that the 2004 Cadillac Seville
SLS is lacking in any sense. After all, it is a luxury vehicle.
Air conditioning with dual zone automatic climate control,
a power tilt/telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel
with radio and climate controls, leather upholstery, 10-way
power front seats with power lumbar adjustment and driver-seat
memory and heated front and rear seats are all standard.
Also standard is the convenient OnStar system with its
safety and security features. Optional equipment includes
a navigation system and a power sunroof, among others.
The 2003 Seville received a freshened exterior look featuring
a body-colored grille. New colors for the new model year
include Light Platinum and White Lightning.
Though the Cadillac Seville will make way for an all-new
Sigma-architecture based 2005 STS performance sedan, it's
hard to believe it could be for power reasons. With a 4.6-liter
Northstar V8, the front-wheel drive Seville SLS can move
quite well. The engine can generate 275 horsepower at 5600
rpm and 300 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm.
4-speed electronic automatic with overdrive and viscous-type
converter clutch continues to be the transmission of choice
for the Seville SLS.
Also returning for 2004 are the StabiliTrak system and
full-range traction control. With Magnasteer variable assist
speed-sensitive steering and these two systems, the result
is supreme handling ability.
Safety and Security
The 2004 Cadillac Seville SLS will go out a safe sedan.
It has antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, dual front airbags,
front side airbags, a rear-obstacle detection system, wiper-activated
headlights, cornering lights and fog lights.
