The first STS model was lauched in 2004, being an 2005 model. It had two versions that buyers could chose from, a V6 engine and also a V8. The V6 was by far the most popular, as almost 80 % of the buyers went with Cadillacs powered by this V6 engine.

The 2008 Cadillac STS,  new generation new enhancements. We are talking about a state-of-the-art  3.6-liter V6 engine, that empowers the Cadillac STS with a stunning 302 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. That is a value with 47-hp and 20-lb-ft more than the previous model, the 2007 STS. Transmission  is pretty much in the American tradition, six-speed  automatic, also this is new as the 2007  model had only a five-speed transmission. The direct-injection V6 is also going to be used on  the generations to follow of Cadillac CTS, of course with slightly modified features. New 18-inch tires are now moving the Cadillac STS.

Interior is, as expected from a Cadillac, nowhere under excellent. Both exterior and interior have been reinvented, still maintaining the stylish Cadillac line. Grille design is a bit retro, similar to one first seen on the Cadillac Sixteen concept car. The 2008 STS also has a new front fascia and lower intake, that give a plus to style and beauty. Door handles are now finished in chrome, new rocker moldings and side vent. Interior also has more chrome finished on the center stack.
