The Cadillac DTS (DeVille Touring Sedan) replaces the Cadillac DeVille as that carmaker's largest luxury car for the 2006 model year. The DTS follows the naming and styling direction set by the earlier CTS and STS.

The design of the DTS was introduced in a unique way. A specially-designed and outfitted presidential DTS limousine was utilized during the second inauguration of George W. Bush in the January 20, 2005 parade. While details of the vehicle, codenamed Stagecoach, are highly classified, it is presumed to be heavily armored and feature advanced communication equipment. The production DTS was shown at the 2005 Chicago Auto Show on February 9.

The DTS is manufactured at GM's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly factory in Hamtramck, Michigan. The Luxury models are priced a US$41,990, while the Performance version is priced at US$50,490. While the base MSRP for the STS is slightly higher than that for the DTS, the top-of-the-line model is slightly more affordable.

One major feature change from the Deville to the DTS was the deletion of the 6-passenger seating option for non-limousine models.

  • RECALL ALERT: On August 29, 2008, GM issued a GM-wide recall affecting 857,735 vehicles built between 2006-2008 and equipped with heated windshield washer fluid option including the Cadillac DTS. The system was liable to short out causing cessation of function, smoke, possible fire and malfunctioning of other electronic systems in the car. GM urges owners of affected vehicles to go to their nearest local dealer so the problem can be remedied.[1]
  • RECALL ALERT: On November 12, 2010, GM issued a recall affecting 2010 and 2011 model year Buick Lucerne and Cadillac DTS models (13,780 vehicles total), all equipped with V8 engines, due to defective starter or alternator cable that can wear through the power steering lines causing a power steering fluid leak. This can not only result in the loss of power steering, but the liquid could drip onto hot engine parts, resulting in a fire. GM urges owners to bring their cars their local General Motors dealers to have the problem fixed free of charge. Technicians will either secure or reroute the power steering return lines in order to prevent contact with these cables. [2]
