    Bush is going to be rolling in the new DTS limo

    Article from CNN.com


    Cadillac cruises on Inauguration Day

    President Bush plans to ride down Pennsylvania Ave. in the new DTS limousine.
    January 17, 2005: 11:50 AM EST

    President Bush will ride in the Cadillac DTS during his inauguration Thursday.DETROIT (Reuters) - President Bush will ride down Pennsylvania Avenue on Inauguration Day in the new Cadillac DTS limousine, giving the first glimpse of the new flagship sedan from General Motors Corp., the automaker said Monday.

    The black presidential limousine is wider, taller and longer than the DTS sedan, but it shows the new sharper-edged styling for the new model, which goes on sale this fall.

    Transporting Bush in Thursday's parade will help reinforce Cadillac's image, said Keith Spondike, marketing manager for the DTS and its predecessor, the DeVille.

    GM (Research) hopes the new DTS will win back some car buyers who in recent years took to import brands such as Lexus from Toyota Motor Co. (Research), Spondike said.

    "Many of the them used to drive Cadillacs in the '70s and '80s," he said.

    GM (Research) will reveal the new DTS at the Chicago Auto Show in early February. The DTS will have a larger, bolder grille, a bigger Cadillac crest than the DeVille, and offer a more responsive ride with reduced road noise and vibrations, said Al Gagne, product manager for the DTS and DeVille.

    Are there any more pictures of this limo? Rear shot? Higher quality?

    I really don't like how the lisence plate got moved down to the bumper. If I owned a 2006 DTS I'd custom fit the plate back on the trunk lid.

    If I owned a 2006 DTS I'd slam it into the back of a garbage truck to improve the front end aesthetics.

    I didn't like the previous DeVilles either at first... I thought the last change made them look hyindai-subaryish like for some reason. Time fixed that anyways... Kinda grew on me later on. I hope this one does too...

    Realistically, how many more years does the Deville have anyway?? I thought it was being replaced in 2007 with that full-sized RWD?
