Zero to 60 Run--4.6 Cadillac Northstar V8 vs. 4.9 OHV V8
Zero to 60 comparison between my new 2001 Cadillac Seville SLS with a 4.6
Northstar V8 and the 1991 Cadillac Sedan de Ville with a 4.9 that I've
owned since 2005. The Northstar in the Seville is faster, especially at the top end, but the
good old 4.9 in the DeVille holds its own--especially for an 18-year-old
car with 257,000 miles on it.
Judging from the time codes in the video, the Seville did it in 7 second
flat; the DeVille is just over 9 seconds.
Interestingly, both cars shift from 1st to 2nd at 45 MPH, and both hold 2nd
gear all the way up to ~80 MPH. Without a tach in the DeVille, I have no
idea how high it was revving, but it probably went close to redline.
The noise you hear besides the engine revving in the Seville is raindrops
on the windshield. I had the camera on a tripod held down between my legs
in the Seville; in the DeVille, it's just handheld, so it's shakier.
Both runs done on Stapleton Rd. just south of Monmouth/Independence, Oregon

View of the speedometer during an acceleration from stop to 230 kilometers
per hour. Not the fastest but pretty good for a totally stock car as
comfortable as the STS.

In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 1981 Cadillac Seville with
the 6.0L Fuel Injected V8. I take viewers on a close look through the
interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of
features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show
the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

What I have to say about the 1998 Seville: The Seville is a very luxurious
car. I have to say material quality was up to Lexus Like quality and
everything was soft to the touch. Power comes from a heavy duty 4.6 L V8
which provides decent acceleration and pretty good power too. Luxury is not
disappointed in this Cadillac with luxury features such as Full Powered
Seats and Heated Front and Rear Seats. Clear easy to read gauges are also
standard. All in all very good car from Cadillac
