if you had a choice, same year and condition and miles etc... just curious to see what people have to say, and why they would choose one over the other.

1993 STS, first year for N*, and it's got my favorite wheel on any STS ever, and i belive the 5 person seating came standard in the STS.

I wish my STS came with a 5th gear or an overdrive of sorts so that it would get the gas mileage of the SLS's 3.11 final drive ratio. Then, you'd have the best of both worlds!

But, to answer the question directly, I'd rather have the STS.

ABSOLUTLY STS!!! Love the 3.73s for this 4000 lb plus car!!!

I got a 2003... They got all the bugs out!! and the new NorthStar!
I'm diggin it guys... My last car was a Lincoln Mark VIII and I heavy mods on it.
I think the STS is just as bad ass, and most stuff can Standard! Plus my two sons can

My preference has always been smooth, quiet & soft luxurious ride. I'll take higher low end torque over higher HP at top end any day. Better fuel milage is an added bonus. SLS is my choice.

I have a 99 SLS so my answer may be a little partial. I like the SLS better. Mine has virtually all the same options as the STS. I like the chrome wheels that I have for the 99 SLS better than the chrome wheels for the 99 STS. I only changed a few of things on the inside of the car because I like alot of wood grain. I bought the wood grain shifter and I bought the wood grain overlay kit and the long wood grain strips on all four doors.
As far as the HP, I like having more torque and better mileage than having 25 more horse. 275 is more than enough for me with a Cadillac. These cars are both gorgeous but my choice is the SLS. I also don't like the zipper in the headrest in the middle of the back seat on some of the STS's.

I prefer the STS... I like to feel some of the road if you know what I mean.. I forget what speed the suspension kicks into stiff but crusin around town its soft like the SLS, Plus for 00' you couldnt get STS options.

I'm happy with my SLS, too. It's all optioned out like an STS, including the F45 suspension system and gets great gas mileage.

love my SLS it rides and handles like a dream! I have been in an STS and found the ride a bit stiff for my liking, I prefer the finesse over the brute power any day..

Sts all the way! I aint worried about gas mileage. Sts is the way to go thats why they eliminated the Sls in the new model, STS! I like the drive ratio and the sport shifting better. I also like the painted sides, vs the cheap looking plastic, I know that Sls came with painted at a latter date but not my year. The Sts wheels look way better than the Sls wheels and I like the painted front grille. As far as Im concerned Sts is the only way to go!

Technically, the STS replaced the Seville all together. SLS andSTS were versions of the Seville. Just like the DHS and the DTS were versions of the DeVille, they all changed over to the DTS... I'm still happy with my SLS, she's mine!

SLS mainly for better ride, I owned several, the last being an 02 that I traded for an 05 STS. 275 vs 300 HP, doesn't matter, the 275 has plenty of get up and go. I got into driving Cadillacs in 1989 for the ride but those days are gone. I'll take a sloppy understeering floating barge any day over a responsive European engineering driving experience transferring every bump in the road to the driver.
