Cadillac Deville / DTS 2000+ Year to Year Changes

Deville / DTS

New for 2000 Deville / DTS

Blending engineering achievement and sophisticated styling, DeVille has been completely reengineered and redesigned for the 2000 model year. The DeVille has been America’s best selling luxury car for the past 14 years, and the new DeVille has been designed to carry this leadership role into the new millennium.

The 2000 DeVille reflects the bold spirit of great Cadillacs of the past. At the same time, it advances Cadillac’s vision to be a world leader in applying art and science to its products, building on a heritage of design leadership and technological ingenuity that over the years has set Cadillac apart from other luxury carmakers.

The new DeVille is a trimmer, nimbler execution of a spacious luxury sedan. It is 3 inches shorter and 2 inches narrower than the car it replaces, giving it a trimmer, more athletic appearance. But its wheelbase is actually 1.5 inches longer, and its interior space is virtually as roomy as the 1999 model. The 2000 DeVille is still classified as a large car by the EPA.

he 2000 DeVille is available in three models - DeVille, DeVille High Luxury Sedan (DHS) and DeVille Touring Sedan (DTS).
