Used Cadillac Information
Cadillac is the luxury division of General Motors (GM). Its primary markets are North America and China, but Cadillac also sells in 34 other markets globally. Cadillac is the second-oldest automotive brand next to Buick. Interestingly, Cadillac was actually founded by Henry Leland of the Henry Ford Company in 1902 and was named after Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, the founder of Detroit, Michigan. The famous Cadillac crest comes from Mothe's coat of arms. GM purchased the Cadillac marque in 1909.
The Cadillac brand has been responsible for some of the most innovative technologies in automotive manufacture as well as some of the most memorable classic cars in American history. Cadillac was also the first American brand to win the Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club of England and did so twice, first in 1908 and then in 1912.
On the used car market, Cadillac vehicles are often sought out for their luxury, American style, and class. Possibly the most-wanted Cadillac is the Escalade sport utility vehicle, which has appeal for a large number of people thanks to its being a favorite of rap and hip-hop culture as well as being considered one of the most comfortable, yet affordable luxury SUVs on the market.
Another popular used car model is the Cadillac Sedan de Ville, a large sedan build in the early 2000s and favored for its big size and strong V8 engine.
Other favorites include the Cadillac STS, CTS, and SRX. The SRX is Cadillac's best-selling model and has been for five years running.
