'05 Cadillac CTS - Used Car Search

Visit Cadillac for more information on the Cadillac CTS.

Cadillac has enjoyed great success with the Deville in it current form and it hasn't changed the engine or body for 2005. However, significant hardware upgrades have been implemented to add services for safety, security and communications through sixth-generation OnStar hardware and the OnStar Virtual Advisor.

In addition, the 2005 Cadillac Deville is offered with new exterior colours, Green Silk, Light Cashmere and Glacier Gold.

Late in 2004, Cadillac also introduced its protection series; a new armored DeVille model. In the post 9/11 world, the demand for higher levels of security have been great, and Cadillac offers this new model to meet those demands. With bulletproof glass, a special run-flat tire system and a self-sealing fuel tank, this new DeVille is easily the safest ever.

Available Models
The 2005 Cadillac DeVille is offered in three trims-base, DHS and DTS-plus the new armored version.

Interior Features
The four-door Cadillac DeVille, being the biggest car offered by Cadillac, is extremely roomy, to say the least. It can seat six passenger if need be, and not one of them will complain about lack of space.

The new heated and cooled front seats are standard on the DHS and DTS and optional on the base model. The system has three levels each of cooling, full-seat heating and back-only heating, making the DeVille the first vehicle with cooled seats that has the ability to heat only the seatbacks. Also thrown into this package is a heated steering wheel for cold winter days.

The usual laundry list of standard luxury features are offered-air conditioning with tri-zone automatic climate controls, leather upholstery, the OnStar system-plus a few options. XM satellite radio tops this list.

The new OnStar Gen 6 hardware includes upgraded hands-free voice recognition capabilities including more intuitive continuous digit dialing and improved voice recognition accuracy. OnStar features core safety services and OnStar Personal Calling that allows drivers to make and receive hands-free, voice-activated phone calls using a powerful three-watt digital/analog system and external antenna for greater reception.

Also, 2005 Cadillac owners will receive 12 months of complimentary access to Cadillac Virtual Advisor by OnStar. Virtual Advisor provides three-day weather forecasts and traffic reports within pre-selected ranges of 5, 10 or 15 miles of the vehicle's location in most major markets and also monitors traffic for up to three personalized routes and even reports information on up to 10 selected stocks on the DJI and NASDAQ markets - all at the touch of a single button.

Exterior Features
The 2005 Cadillac DeVille maintains the clean, long lines of last year's design. Green Silk, Light Cashmere and Glacier Gold are the new exterior colours.

Base and DHS models are equipped with a 4.6-liter Northstar V8 engine with 275 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 300 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. The top-line DTS has a 4.6-liter Northstar V8 with 300 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 295 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm. 4-speed automatic transmission is standard.

DTS models also come with StabiliTrak, Cadillac's world-class stability-control system (optional on other models) and continuously variable road-sensing suspension.

Safety and Security
Night Vision is back with the Cadillac DeVille, applying military thermal-imaging technology to let drivers see objects beyond headlight range during nighttime driving. Full-range traction control, 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, dual front airbags and front side airbags are all standard. Fully-armoured Devilles are available in regular or 8-inch stretch model.
