I was poking around in other Cadillac Sites and came across this:-

"" The DeVille nameplate is still in use today, but the Coupe DeVille ceased production in 1993. With that demise, the Sedan prefix also ceased in 1996. DeVille was derived from the French phrase meaning " of the city or town " and to further translate, Coupe DeVille means " Town Car ".

He formed both companies right??? Im pretty sure the same man is behind both.

Im glad dealers still add Vogue packages to Devilles which include Sedan Deville emblems.

Cadillac used to market an upscale Cadillac, I think in the 1930s that was aimed at the driver who wanted the prestige of a limosine, but frequently drove himself, but on occasion was chauffered. At first they called it a limosette, but later called it the Cadillac Imperial.
