Named after Antoine de La Mothe-Cadillac, French explorer and founder of the city of Detroit, Cadillac has long been an integral part of Michigan's auto industry. Founded in 1902 by Henry Leland, Cadillac quickly became synonymous with American luxury, placing an early emphasis on precision engineering and stylish finishes. General Motors acquired the company in 1909, and has continued to cultivate the brand's prestigious image for over a century. From full electrical systems to steel roofs to the iconic tailfins of the '40s and '50s, Cadillac has been at the forefront of automotive design for decades, and continues to incite innovation with its current line of cars that combine high-performance engineering with elegant styling and cutting-edge modern technology.
