There are rumors of a possible “slight” refreshing for the Cadillac DTS, model year 2009. The changes would likely be minor updates to the exterior (front and back), possible new wheel options, paint colors, updates to the interior such as improved switch-gear, the 3.6L direct-injected HF V6 either as an option or entirely replacing the Northstar and a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Some people are confused by these possibilities as the DTS has a short life-span remaining – along with the STS – to be replaced by one new rear wheel drive vehicle. However, sales are still high enough to warrant such changes that’ll keep the vehicle fresh and continue selling until the replacement comes along. Cadillac has obviously not given up on the prospects of the DTS being a vehicle wanted by a younger generation. This is obvious with commercials like these.
