The hood ornament that is missing makes the car look several years newer since it mimics more modern body styles. Mostly just creature comforts, but they are nice. The suspension is nicer(the computer adjusts more often). I forgot the rest, but I may take a look at my 96 Concours manual if I remember.Sal Collaziano said:Hello, HopefulOwner! Welcome aboard... And thank you for signing up! I'm not the best one to answer this, but I do know that the Concours is the sportier model. Sorta like the STS vs the SLS and the ETC vs the ESC... There's no hood ornament - it's located inside the grill instead, there's a center-console on '97's and up, there's 300hp as opposed to 275, probably bigger gears and there's probably a firmer ride.. Maybe more sporty seats as well - not sure..
Again, I'm not the best one to answer your question.. Let's see what others say. Regardless, you're looking at getting a very classy and powerful vehicle!
I own a 97 concours. Biggest difference that makes it worth the extra moolahHOPEFULOWNER said:Trying to find out the difference between a plain Deville and a Deville Concours? Can you help?
Well I will have to say I have a 95 Deville... The biggest diff is the motor.. The stand. deville has a 4.9 (200HP) and the concours has the 24 valve.. "North Star"...(275) I have talked to a lot of people and in my opinion you don't want a NS before 2000 or so. The 4.9 has a solid reputation and gives very nice performance.. + I get 25 mpg intown and 27 on the highway... Not bad for a boat!HOPEFULOWNER said:Trying to find out the difference between a plain Deville and a Deville Concours? Can you help?
