Edmunds' Expert Review

With its strong powerplant, excellent road manners and well-appointed interior, the DeVille is the the best full-size luxury sedan on the market.

vehicle overview

For more than 50 years, the DeVille has been one of the most popular models sold by Cadillac. And though the current generation is sleekly styled and packed with cutting-edge technology, it still sports a traditional eggcrate grille and a vestige of tailfin in its vertical LED taillights. The 2002 edition is available in three models: the base DeVille, a ritzy DeVille High Luxury Sedan (DHS) and a sporty, five-passenger DeVille Touring Sedan (DTS).

Even with its relatively slim and trim shape the DeVille is still a sizable sedan, so the inclusion of the Northstar V8 engine is a welcome sight. Standard DeVilles and the DHS get the 275 horsepower version, while the sportier DTS gets upgraded to 300 horsepower. Significant retuning last year resulted in Low Emission Vehicle status as well as a change in fuel requirement from premium to regular unleaded. Despite having to motivate almost two tons of sheetmetal, both versions of the Northstar V8 get the DeVille up to speed quickly and with little noise intrusion to the cabin.

Interior room is outstanding, with both five- and six-passenger models available. Front seat passengers are coddled in sumptuous leather seats with 10-way power adjustment and four-position headrests. Dual-zone heating elements and massaging lumbar comes standard on DHS and DTS models, with an even more sophisticated adaptive seating system optional. Rear-seat passengers get their own climate controls, as well as heated seats, power lumbar adjustment and a power rear window sunshade in the DHS.

Cadillac prides itself on being at the forefront of automotive technology, and the DeVille is no exception. The optional Night Vision thermal imaging system is the first of its kind in an automobile, allowing drivers to see objects beyond the range of normal headlights. Another microchip intensive system is the continuously variable road-sensing suspension (CVRSS) that comes standard on the DTS. It monitors and adjusts individual shock damping at each wheel according to road surface changes for maximum comfort and performance. Also on hand to maintain optimum vehicle control on the DTS (optional on the DeVille and DHS) is StabiliTrak 2.0, GM's most advanced stability and traction control system. A vast array of on-board sensors can detect if the vehicle is deviating from the driver's intended path and selectively apply individual brakes to restore control.

All DeVilles include leading-edge passive restraints (front, side and optional rear seat airbags) and the OnStar communications system. The industry's first light-emitting diode (LED) taillight and center high-mounted stoplight combination provides additional safety through faster illumination of the brake lights and brighter intensity.

Building on its reputation for comfort and convenience, the DeVille also offers such luxury touches as three-zone climate control, adaptive seating and massaging lumbar seats. Rear-seat passengers enjoy a theater seating layout (for optimum forward visibility), heated seats and power lumbar adjustments.

As Cadillac's flagship sedan, the DeVille is a sophisticated American luxury car that remains true to Cadillac's heritage, yet hints at the division's high-tech future. With its powerful engine, cavernous interior and multitude of high-tech vehicle systems, the DeVille should have no problem maintaining its status as one of the best-selling luxury cars on the market.

Plush ride, needs service every 4 month
Uwe & Wendy, 6/22/2009
We got the car in April 2008 with 60k miles. My wife has a 70 miles commute every day, so we are putting a lot of milage on the vehicel. Plush ride, very comfortable. However, every 4 months or so there had been issues - mostly with the electronic. Every visit in the shop is at least $700. No wonder that you can by those used ones so dirt cheap - you need to invest $3,000 or more every year just to keep them running! Gas milage is about 19 MPG on premium gas (the poster who reported 30+ miles is clearly smoking something!) with a mix of city & highway.
Not sure what Cadillac is anymore...
potsynolls, 9/14/2014
I think that the devilles' are good sized cars that eliminating any cramped feelings that most other cars can have. This is a definite upgrade from chevy division products, and I am sad to see the company changing it's product line up into unfamiliar territory. Being a 2002 deville I have made and paid for some repairs which isn't fun, but eventually any 10+ year old car is going to need some work done to it. I am still a little confused to what Cadillac thinks that they are competing with at the same price points of everyone else. I think that the build quality of cadillacs should be the standard for all GM products instead of them continuously pumping out tin can crap to consumers.
Leaky leaky
unhappycamper, 8/19/2010
This is a great riding car and a looker, too. BUT: last year at 73000 miles I had to get oil pan gaskets replaced - $1300. Last month at 83,000 miles, the northstar has a leaky head gasket. That'll be another $1400 plus. Sad that such an expensive car develops problems so soon. I've driven Buick lesabres passed 160,000 miles with no such problems. This is my LAST Caddy.
Shake Rattle & Roll
Burgundy & Gold, 7/22/2008
This has been one of the worst car experiences I have ever had. I love the way the car looks, but I cannot stand it when the accelerator begins to shake when I drive over 60 mph. It also shakes when I apply the brakes even though I have changed the brakes, rotors, tie rod ends, and numerous other things. Not to mention I have to take it to the dealership at least 3 or 4 times a year! It sucks! My next car will not be a Cadi. Too much work.
