    Whats the difference?

    What's the major difference between a Deville Sedan and a Deville Touring Sedan? Are there emblems that can help you see the difference between the two?

    I think the touring sedan has a stiffer suspension. I'm sure there must be an emblem somewhere to identify it.

    If you're speaking of an '00 and up car, the DTS will have fog lights in the lower valance, DTS insignia on the rear of the deck lid, (I beleive 17") chrome wheels w/high performance tires, high line interior w/buckets and console mounted shifter, body color grill insert. This should get you started in decerning the two from one another.

    Re: Whats the difference?

    The easiest way to tell is the door handles. Only two Devilles came with body colored as opposed to chrome door handles, the Touring Sedan, and the Spring Edition (of which there is a very nice low mileage triple black one for sale by me). Wider tires were also part of the touring sedan package as well.

    I don't believe I've ever seen the Spring Edition DeVille. What year is yours and would you post a pic or two of it? Thanks

    Not mine (wish it was) but I noticed it was up for sale. Spring Editions have body colored door handles, preforated leather, 60 Special wheels, cabrolet top, gold package, and some other things that I forget. 72k on the one for sale. Verry tempting.

    My triple black '99 has body color door handles, cabriolet roof, chrome wheels, gold package and rosewood int. trim. Just wondering about the particulars of the specific model.

    Dave does that apply to the older ones too? The colored door handles?

    Re: Whats the difference?

    I think the 2 most prominent differences between the DTS and the other flavors of the devilles is that
    1. The fog lights that come with the DTS. and
    2. The lower valence that completely surrounds the bottom of the car is always color matched to the body color on the DTS. On the other flavors the valence is just black plastic..
