Cadillac Seville STS

The Cadillac Seville was a mid-size luxury sedan manufactured by General Motors' Cadillac division from 1975 to 2004. The vehicle was traditionally second in the Cadillac lineup after the Deville and was more focused on performance than the larger Deville.


The Seville, introduced in 1975, was Cadillac's response to the growing popularity of luxury imports in the U.S., such as Mercedes-Benz and BMW. At the time, these imports were often cheaper, less luxurious, and smaller than Cadillacs, but over time, they evolved to become just as luxurious, if not more expensive than competing Cadillacs, and yet they still managed to increase their market share. This showed that the traditional idea that size equaled quality in American automotive industry was no longer the case. Thus, the Seville was created to be the smallest and most costly Cadillac in the lineup, taking Cadillac's traditional marketing and pricing strategy in a different direction.

Fifth Generation (1998)

In 1998, the Seville received an update on the new K-body platform, which was based on the Oldsmobile G-body Aurora. That same year, the Cadillac Catera took over from the Seville as Cadillac's smaller car, and the Seville switched its competitors to the BMW 5-Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The wheelbase increased to 112.2 inches, but the overall length decreased to 201 inches. The car appeared similar to the previous fourth-generation model, albeit with numerous suspension and drivability improvements. The Seville STS (and teammate Eldorado ETC) were now the most powerful front wheel drive cars on the market, at 300 hp (224 kW). The fully-loaded STS model was priced at an MSRP of $52,075. In 2003, the cars received a Magnaride adaptive suspension system. The fifth-gen Seville was discontinued in 2004, and was replaced by the rear wheel drive Cadillac STS. Production of the front wheel drive Seville STS ended on May 16, 2003 and the SLS ended on December 5, 2003. All front wheel drive Sevilles were produced in Hamtramck, Michigan.
