Benefits of Driving a 2011 Cadillac DTS Sedan

With its excellent fit and finish and array of available configurations, the DTS still holds its own in the luxury sedan segment. The DTS is largest sedan in the Cadillac line-up. Known for a soft, pillowy ride and quiet interior, the DTS continues to appeal to fans of the classic big-car Cadillac experience.

What's new for 2011?

The Cadillac DTS has almost nothing new to add for 2011. Cotillion White is no longer available as an exterior paint.

Model Strengths

  • Plenty of passenger room
  • quiet ride
  • smooth, powerful acceleration

Model Review

Cadillac offers four versions of the DTS, all with a powerful 4.6L V8 under the hood that makes 275 horsepower. The top-level Platinum edition squeezes out a few more horsepower for a rating of 292. All versions feature a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, plus 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, StabiliTrak stability control, traction control and tire pressure monitoring. Rear parking assist is standard on all but the base DTS.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
