Perhaps America's most famous luxury automaker, Cadillac was born in 1902 and purchased by General Motors in 1909. Throughout the first half of the century, Cadillac gained favor as it cranked out new innovations like the V8 engine, thermostat-controlled cooling system and vertical taillights. After World War II, Cadillac enjoyed the height of its popularity as the brand of the rich and famous.
When the gas crisis hit in the 1970s, however, Cadillac was forced to reinvent itself. Its oversized, gas-guzzling sedans suddenly seemed out of date. While Cadillac struggled for a number of years to find its identity, it seemed to hit its stride at the beginning of the new millennium, with cars, trucks and SUVs that featured bold, straight lines. Vehicles like the Cadillac Escalade appealed to a younger demographic by featuring a distinctive style, powerful engine and roomy interior.
