Cadillac Club: The Cadillac Seville

The Cadillac Seville

THE CADILLAC SEVILLE - One of Cadillacís Best Automobiles Of All Time

In all reality, the Cadillac Seville made its first appearance on the roadway in 1956, however, at the time Cadillac only built four and they were coupe versions of the then popular Cadillac El Dorado Convertible. Throughout the next several years, Cadillac included the name of Seville on several more of the Cadillac El Doradoís; the most famous was the 1959 version, sporting huge tailfins.

In 1975, Cadillac introduced the world once more to the Cadillac Seville, this time as its own model and no variation of any other car. The 1975 Cadillac Seville was Cadillacís answer to the popular luxury cars that were being brought over from Europe. Although, Cadillac had been known for having large luxurious cars.

The Seville in 1975 was marketed as a smaller Cadillac that had the same smooth ride as the larger sedans. In all reality, the Seville was based upon parent companies model, the Chevrolet Nova. This marked the first of many times when a Cadillac would be based on a Chevrolet model. As a result of Cadillacís efforts, the Seville became an overnight success, as a result, many car makers tried imitating the Sevilleís look, only to fall flat on their faces.

Throughout the years, the Seville stayed on top of the market for Cadillac, and in fact in 1992, the Seville Touring Sedan model won Motor Trendís Car of the Year, one of the most prestigious awards for car makers. The 1992 model of the Seville was larger than its predecessors, and the talk of the motor industry. Sales for the 1992 Cadillac Seville rose to over 43,000.

After itís great success, the Cadillac Seville went on to even greater feats, for example, later the 1998 Cadillac Seville STS became the most powerful front wheel drive car on the market, thanks in part to the introduction of the North star system. After many great years on the road, however, the Cadillac Seville name has now been retired; instead a newer faster Cadillac STS has taken its place as its successor.
