The 1975 Seville was a shock to Cadillac purists because it was the first downsized Caddy ever. As an affordable luxury car, it was a brilliant move by the company and one of the best U.S. sedans of the late ’70s. The 1975 Seville turned out to be the perfect car for the time, so the sales went beyond the company’s expectations.
The Seville was elegant, perfectly sized and reasonably powerful. Also, it came with a long list of options and trim choices, including the interesting Slantback body style. Buyers could even get the Gucci-themed trim package.
