2001 Seville New Car Test Drive
With its brilliant acceleration, crisp handling, and Gibralter stability, the Cadillac Seville makes no apologies to expensive imported sports sedans. This car is just the thing for covering lots of real estate in a big hurry, cruising effortlessly at 80-90 mph like a high-performance sports sedan.
Around town, it's smooth and comfortable. The Seville comes loaded with features and technology designed to deliver comfort, safety and performance. Cadillac's StabiliTrak system is smart enough to respond to a skid before you're even aware there's a problem. OnStar, with enhanced capabilities for 2001, can automatically locate your vehicle and alert emergency personnel in case of an accident. Bose Infotainment, also new for 2001, integrates cell phone, personal data assistant, navigation, and audio-entertainment functions into a single system.
Two models are available: The $41,935 SLS comes with nearly every luxury feature you can imagine, powered by a 4.6-liter Northstar V8 producing 275 horsepower.
For $48,045, the high-performance STS boosts horsepower to 300 and adds continuously variable road-sensing suspension (CVRSSl), speed-rated Goodyear Eagle LS in place of the mundane Goodyear Integrity tires, fog lights, and a super-deluxe interior with perforated leather, 14-way power seats, and memory functions for just about everything.
