Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

On the twentieth of this month, at the inauguration of the new president of the United States, a new Cadillac will head the event on Pennsylvania Avenue as President Obama will ride in a brand new Cadillac Presidential Limousine keeping the long tradition of Cadillac Limousines that have served numerous U.S. presidents in the past. It was during the time of President Woodrow Wilson and the infancy of the auto industry where all this began.

Obama's limousine, however, is a totally new design, a successor of the 2004 debuted DTS Presidential Limousine with the integration of spectacular design as well as new technologies much admired in the Cadillac's totally customized vehicles a fitting transport for a US President.

Both in the exterior and interior, the vehicle overflows with the brand's signature design elements. The front end of the Presidential Limousine includes the complex, dual-textured grill made popular by the current models Escalade and CTS sport sedan.

Other design aspects, such as front and rear lighting, reflect those found on production versions. The vehicle is more upright than its predecessor for a better outward-looking visibility. This Cadillac's footprint is almost the same as the preceding model including size and proportion.

Both side and rear profiles are classic, refined reminiscent of the STS and DTS luxury sedans of Cadillac. In the interior, the car includes only the most elegant of recent Cadillac renaissance design, craftsmanship and technology.

Major features include hand-sewn parts of the cabin just like in the CTS sport sedan and other popular Cadillac models. "Cadillac is honored to again provide a new Presidential Limousine. This is a great American tradition that we're delighted to renew with an all-new car featuring the best of Cadillac's dramatic design and technology." said Mark McNabb, North America vice president, Cadillac/Premium Channel.
