The third-generation Cadillac Seville represented a big change from what had gone before. It was smaller, and it had a 4.1-liter V8 that drove the front wheels. However, sales plummeted, so a facelift was rushed through in the next couple of years. As part of this the new STS (Seville Touring Sedan) was launched. Thereafter, the STS and the regular Seville were sold alongside each other, with the STS having the higher specification. In 1990, the Seville was endowed with more power and was given various cosmetic tweaks. In 1991, a new 200hp 4.9-liter V8 was fitted. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Cadillac repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts.
