In 1902, Henry Leland founded Cadillac and began a path that would create a long-standing legacy of luxury.
Throughout the early 1920s, Cadillac made award-winning advances in car manufacturing, particularly in the realm of mass production. Cadillac boasted the first-ever passenger car with a fully enclosed cabin (as opposed to previous models that were open-air) in 1910, and later released one of the first cars that didn't need a crank. With an electric starting system rather than a traditional crank, Cadillac vehicles changed the roadway experience for American drivers.
In the early days of automobiles, reliability and function were vital. But Cadillac decided that focusing only on function was not a sufficient vision for the future of cars. The company believed that a vehicle needed to operate beautifully—and look impressive, too. As the 1920s unfolded, Cadillac put its efforts not only into engine technology but into the aesthetic and appearance of their vehicles. Cadillac became one of the first companies to offer multiple exterior color choices to buyers (something previously unheard of in the auto industry). Cadillac cars were also the first to sport a tailfin, a distinctive design feature that most Americans instantly recognize as the mark of retro, 1950s and early 1960s-era cars.
After more than 100 years in business, the Cadillac name still seems synonymous with luxury. While most people may picture Cadillac vehicles as luxury sedans, the company has expanded its lineup to include SUVs and crossover vehicles, like the popular Escalade model. True to its mission of creating a luxury driving experience for Cadillac owners, the company most recently developed and released its proprietary Super Cruise technology, a first-of-its-kind hands-free driver assistance feature.
