The Cadillac Automobile Company was started in 1905.

The Cadillac name is named after the founder of Detroit, 17th century French explorer Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac. (Detroit was founded in 1701).

Even by 1908 Cadillac was known for their precision engineering and luxury quality. They had many engineering firsts for the automobile industry.

1n 1909 Cadillac was bought and became part of the GM brand.

In 1912 Cadillac made the electric starter standard equipment. This was a popular selling choice over other cars at the time, those powered by electricity or steam.

In 1917 the U.S. needde a dependable car for the war effort. Cadilliac was the chosen brand and over 2300 were sold and deployed.

The cars passed the military tests and during the war the only change made by the military was the addition of a khaki paint color.

Cadillac introduced shatter resistant glass in 1926.

In the 1930s Cadillac had V12 and V16 engines as options. They made powerful luxury cars.

In 1934 the Phillips screw was invented. Henry F. Phillips convinced Cadillac to use his new screw design and Cadillac was the first car manufacturer to incorporate the design into their production lines - speeding up assembly.

The 1950s, 1960's and early 1970s saw Cadillac go through several styling changes. The cars were large, powerful, with many luxury options for their distinct customers.

The compact Sevilles were introduced in 1976 with an all new electronic fuel injection.

In the 1980s Cadillac revealed it's V8-6-4 engine. It would electronically deactivate pairs of cylinders at a time to save fuel, but it was unreliable. Thankfully, for many customers, Cadillac dropped the engine option altogether in just a coupk,e of years.

From 1982 to 1987 Cadiilac used their infamous 4100 V8 engines. Being made of aluminum they often failed before arriving at the 60,000 mile mark.

Many Cadillac owners were becoming disillusioned with the brand. This cost Cadillac many a customer at the time.

In 1999 Cadillac introduced it's Yukon based Escalade.

Cadillac cars have been one of the most popular luxury class cars ever made. Even back since the 1930s.

Expensive? Of course. But they never settled for second best - luxury was always in the forfront of their engineering and styling.

Most of us remember the big names - the Sedan Devilles, the Eldorados, the Fleetwoods. For many years Cadillacs were known to be a preferred choice of custom limousine builders.

Later, in modern times, Cadillac has branched out into SUVs such as their Escalades.

From a performance perspective, their engineering has gone far and beyond just luxury with some of their cars like the earlier STS and CTS models, making as much as 500 horsepower - right off the showroom floor.

The newest CT5V versions sport around 650 HP!

Cadiilac is still a high end luxury brand. But there's nothing to say you can't enjoy luxury and performance in the same car.
