Cadillac Cars: History from Model 30 to Escalade
Cadillac was officially founded on August 22nd, 1902 out of the ashes of the Henry Ford Company. Cadillac quickly made a name for itself as a leader in quality, and by 1909 had become a luxury offshoot of General Motors. Cadillac then perfected the water-cooled V-8 engine, and eventually introduced the V-12 and V-16, as well as a number of other important auto innovations. The company remains a strong brand in the luxury car market, and continues to be the "standard of the world." In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look at the history of Cadillac, from its beginnings with the Model 30, to its more recent successes with the de Ville, Eldorado and Escalade.
