2009 Cadillac DTS vs. Its Competition

2009 Cadillac DTS

There isn’t much competition in this categoryThe Buick Lucerne shares its underbody and running gear with the Cadillac DTS, along with its spacious interior.

Chrysler sells a long-wheelbase version of its 300 sedan that sports more rear legroom, but it's still primarily a five-seater, and its interior isn't as nicely finished as the Cadillac.

Lincoln's Town Car is the old man on the totem pole, with a ride that tends to be oddly firm yet bouncy, especially on extended versions.

It’s now bought mostly for fleets, and Ford likely will cancel the model in the near future.
