Cadillac, in the U.S., is synonymous with luxury. With its sleek lines and quality engineering, the Cadillac has been for decades the car of choice for the discerning motorist who wishes to make a statement on the road. Even used Cadillac cars are guaranteed to turn heads when they cruise by.
Cadillac, according to Automotive.com, has been the first name in American luxury cars for over 100 years; favorite of such stars as Elvis Presley. Since the 1990s, Cadillac has begun appealing to younger drivers, and used Cadillac cars are a good way for the first-time luxury car buyer to join this grand tradition.
When the Cadillac was introduced in Detroit in 1902 by Henry Leland , it became the first to offer drivers a color other than black. Leland named his new company after Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, the founder of Detroit. The company’s crest was inspired by the Cadillac family’s coat of arms. Leland completely revolutionized the concept of mass production of cars at the time by demonstrating the complete interchangeability of his car’s precision parts. Cadillac was the first American car to win the Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club of England in 1908, leading the company to adopt the slogan “Standard of the World.”
For more than a century, Cadillac has stood for uncompromising performance, groundbreaking technology, and daring in design. Cadillac introduced the first electric self-starting engine and was a pioneer in integrating computer technology into automobiles. Cadillac was also the first to introduce the clashless manual transmission and steel roof, and in 1912, wont the Dewar Trophy a second time in 1912 for being the first company to incorporate electric starting and lighting in an assembly-line produced automobile. Cadillac has continued to receive accolades for innovation and excellence in the auto industry, including Edmunds.com ‘Best Retained Value ® Award, Connected World Magazine’s Connected Car of the Year Award (2012), and Kelley Blue Book’s 2012 Brand Image Awards for Best Luxury Interior Design Brand and Best Comfort Brand. In 2008, Cadillac’s CTS Sport Sedan was Motor Trend’s Car of the Year, because of its design and performance and having passed rigorous tests around the world.
Used Cadillac cars are available in a wide variety of models, ranging from the Eldorado luxury coupe to the Escalade SUV. The Cadillac DTS, a full-sized four-door sedan is one of the top of the line used Cadillac cars that is available at affordable prices, as is also the Cadillac Seville, which is the name originally used in the 1950s to denote a coupe version of the Eldorado.
Purchasing used Cadillac cars also make sense economically. Because of the solid engineering, used Cadillac cars that have been well maintained have fewer service problems than many other makes of automobiles; and owners of used Cadillac cars typically kept them well maintained as a point of pride. In addition, service facilities for used Cadillac cars, as compared to import luxury cars, are more readily available to American motorists. Used Cadillac cars consistently rank higher than import models in terms of warranty, roadside assistance, performance, technology, and distinctive design.
