The Seville was a model of car by Cadillac, between the years of 1975 and 1979. It was Cadillac’s answer to the rising popularity of luxury European imports like Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Introduced in mid-1975 it was called the new “internationally-sized” Cadillac. The company’s research showed that their clientele was aging. The giant luxury cars of the past were not selling well. Their research showed that they should go smaller. The Seville was almost 1,000 pounds (450 kg) lighter than the full-sized Cadillacs, like the Deville. The Seville was easier to handle and easier to park. Ironically, this made it even more popular with elderly people.
Assembly was done in Detroit, Michigan, United States. The body style was that of a 4-door sedan with an FR layout and a K-body. Power was provided by a 350 cu in (5.7 L) Oldsmobile V8 with Bendix/Bosch electronically controlled fuel injection, or a 350 cu in (5.7 L) Oldsmobile diesel V8. Both engine choices were paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission.
It produced 180 hp (130 kW), with gas mileage of 17 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway. This was better than the fuel consumption of the full size models, which were getting less than 10 miles per gallon at the time.
Production totals ranged from 16,355 units sold, in 1975, to a peak of 56,985 cars sold in 1978. The Seville name carried on to later cars, but the first generation cars are now starting to be appreciated as classics.
