2010 Cadillac DTS vs. Its Competition

2009 Cadillac DTS w/1SA
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Few of us cross-shop the Cadillac DTS while we're above ground.

The Buick Lucerne's a good substitute, since it's essentially a DTS with different styling.

The Chrysler 300's a smaller, nimbler rear-driver with only five seats and a less ritzy feel, and the Lincoln Town Car is the old man on the totem pole-and not long for this world, either.

Quick Specs
7.4
The 2010 Cadillac DTS is a boardroom on wheels: Six leather chairs keep old men cozy in a wood-paneled room, and steering feels like it's done by committee.
7.2
A soft ride and roomy interior still form the solid base for the 2009 Buick Lucerne’s appeal.
7.2
The 2008 Lincoln Town Car looks and feels dated, but can carry six passengers and their luggage.
