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
Test Drive: 1996 Cadillac Sedan Deville
This is the second of many test drive videos to come, expect drives of all
the vehicles currently on the lot that I have not done already! Here is
the 1996 cadillac deville with the 32v northstar V8 engine and dual Exhaust. I take it for a drive for the first
time to check it over before it goes on the lot. I take it through some
normal city driving, do a couple of acceleration passes and check it over
in depth to make sure it's perfect, and of course it was :)
2001 Cadillac STS Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2001 Cadillac STS. 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
crown vic vs cadillac
2003 P71 (police interceptor)Crown vic vs 2001 Cadillac Seville. The Crown
vic won this match in the quarter mile, but then slammed on the brakes at
about 1500 feet so it appears the caddy won.
