The DTS is a large, front-wheel-drive luxury sedan. Its 275-hp, 4.6-liter V8 is smooth and powerful, and works well with the four-speed automatic. Interior space is generous, with a roomy back seat and an enormous trunk. A six-passenger version, featuring a front bench seat, is available. However handling is not agile, and braking is unimpressive. The ride is comfortable, but can become buoyant at speed. The interior is quiet. Fit and finish were improved over the DeVille sedan it replaced, but some flaws seem out of place for this class. The 2011 model year was its last.
