2002 Cadillac DeVille

2002 CADILLAC DEVILLE OFFERS NEW DVD-BASED NAVIGATION SYSTEM, OTHER IMPROVEMENTS

2002 Cadillac DeVille
The DeVille nameplate, steeped in more than half a century of automotive history, symbolizes Cadillac's proud heritage while serving as a harbinger of the division's future. Bold, groundbreaking technologies such as Night Vision, the acclaimed Northstar engine and StabiliTrak have shaped the DeVille's character, and help distinguish the marque from other full-size luxury automakers.

Completely redesigned in 2000, the DeVille's clean, flowing exterior strikes the perfect balance between formal and sporty. Its chiseled, shear lines are distinctly Cadillac, as are cues such as its shield-shaped grille and strong side spline.

'The DeVille has been the best-selling luxury car in America for 16 years, and the latest generation continues to drive the average age of Cadillac customers down,' said Pat Kemp, DeVille brand manager. 'Traditionally, pre-boomers have represented DeVille's primary customer base, and by 2005, we expect nearly 40 percent of buyers in this segment will be boomers.'

Advanced Vehicle NavigationOne significant change is a new DVD-based Advanced Vehicle Navigation system. The system incorporates voice recognition, complementing the DeVille's 'eyes on the road, hands on the wheel' philosophy, and enables drivers to view detailed maps on a 6.5-inch diagonal touch-screen. The screen tilts down to allow for the loading of the map data DVD, an entertainment DVD or an audio CD while the vehicle is in Park. One DVD covers the continental Únited States and Canada. Drivers can still play music CDs while using the DVD system by using a six-disc CD changer in the glove box. In addition, passengers can watch DVD movies with superior sound from the Bose sound system when the vehicle is in Park.

The GPS-based system has five languages and voice prompts that recognize two drivers. The system remembers 60 preprogrammed locations per driver.

Maintenance

2002 Cadillac DeVille
Routine maintenance becomes less time-consuming in 2002, with maximum oil and oil filter change intervals increased from 10,000 to 12,500 miles. All DeVilles have an oil life monitor that tells drivers when they need oil changes based on their environment and type of driving.
The DeVille also has new factory fill engine oil that meets the industry's upgraded GF3 specifications. The specification results in a .5 to 1- percent increase in fuel economy and a 40 percent reduction in oil consumption. The new oil is more highly refined and contains more detergent inhibitor.

A new color joins the DeVille's exterior palette–Blue Onyx, and Cadillac's new wreath and crest emblem will grace the decklid, grille emblem, hood ornament, keys, steering wheel, wheel caps, and engine top cover.

In addition, new rear shocks and front struts with four-stage valving improve the ride on the DeVille and DHS models.

Safety and convenience

2002 Cadillac DeVille
Always a safety leader, DeVille offers a new feature in 2002: dual-stage air bag inflaters. New dual-stage inflators offer maximum protection in high-speed crashes while minimizing injury risk to smaller stature occupants. The system detects vehicle acceleration, and provides the appropriate level of air bag inflation.

For added convenience, an additional power outlet in the front passenger seat tray offers another place to plug in devices needing power. And, a new express-up feature powers the front windows up with a quick touch of the button.

XM Satellite Radio

2002 Cadillac DeVille
In 2002, the DeVille will have XM Radio, a new band of satellite radio with up to 100 individual channels of digital-quality programming. It will offer an array of innovative formats unavailable in many markets today, including music, news, sports, talk and children's radio. XM combines commercial-free, limited advertiser-supported and brand-name channels with continuous, uninterrupted service anywhere in the continental Únited States for a $9.99 monthly subscription fee.
The stereo system has been updated with new, simplified Radio Data System (RDS) functions. If a station subscribes to RDS, which allows the radio to receive digital data transmitted along with the standard radio signal, drivers can view song names and artists, as well as the type of radio station. The system is now easier to use and more intuitive.

Also new is a phone integration kit that accommodates a tri-band phone, enabling drivers to access digital, analog or PCS service. The system includes a docking station for the handset and connection equipment. For more information about XM Satellite Radio, see the 'OnStar' section of the Corporate press kit.
