Cadillac DTS Platinum

The 2008 Cadillac DTS Platinum edition provides Cadillac’s most discriminating customers with a distinctly higher level of premium luxury, going to dramatic new lengths with 18-inch chromed wheels, bright chrome grille and chrome inserts on the exterior door handle lift bars, as well as an exclusive Platinum badge.

The DTS Platinum features the 292-horsepower Northstar 4.6L V-8 and other performance-oriented features such as Magnetic Ride Control and Performance Algorithm shifting.

A choice of two unique interiors, Light Linen over Cocoa or all-Ebony, are distinguished by light ash burl wood with decorative inlay, Tuscany full leather upholstery and hand-cut-and-sewn leather on the instrument panel top pad, console and door trim. French seams on the door panel inserts are additional details that add a touch of luxury.

This wall-to-wall luxury extends underfoot and even to the trunk, with unique floor mats and a richer trunk mat made of upgraded materials. A sunroof and DVD navigation system are standard, as are LED interior ambient footwell lighting. A headrest-mounted rear DVD audio/video system is available.

A handcrafted, leather-wrapped heated steering wheel with authentic light ash burl wood and chrome rings â€" as well as chrome appointments, synthetic suede headliner and visors, and an illuminated Platinum badge on the door sill plate â€" complete the package.

The Cadillac DTS Platinum will be available in the fall of 2007.
