The Cadillac Catera is a mid-size 4-door sedan. It is largely a copy of the car from the company Opel - Opel Omega MV6, which was assembled in the city of Rรผsselsheim, Germany. Cadillac has improved the comfort and safety of the car. In this regard, Omega MV6 gained weight, which caused the need to strengthen the suspension. It was the first Cadillac car fully assembled outside of America. For the first time Cadillac Catera was introduced in 1997, and subsequently was upgraded to the 2000 model year. He received an updated front part, new wheels, mirrors, headlights and interior. Suspension got tougher settings.

Under the hood is the engine L81 V6 volume of 3.0 liters. Its capacity was 200 hp. The power unit was created in England at the General Motors plant in Ellesmere Port. The sedan was rear-wheel drive, unlike all other Cadillac models at the time. The maximum speed of the car was 200 km / h, and the acceleration from zero to 100 km / h took only 8.5 seconds. The Cadillac Catera was equipped with a 4-speed GM 4L30-E automatic transmission, which was also used in BMW 3rd and 5th series cars and in some Isuzu models. It was designed at the General Motors plant in Strasbourg, France. The sports model Catera was proposed in 1999.

She acquired larger wheels, a more stable suspension, rear spoiler and other more cosmetic changes. Note that the Cadillac Catera was smaller in size and power than the other Cadillac models. Despite the positive reviews and reviews in the press, sales volumes fell short of General Motors hopes. The car was more often considered as too small for Cadillac and could not attract enough buyers against the background of European competitors.

In connection with the problems of reliability, including the rapid wear of the engine in urban driving conditions, as well as an unsuccessful advertising campaign, in 2001, they forced the Cadillac Catera to be discontinued. For five years of production of a sedan, approximately 95,000 cars were sold in the United States. The platform on which the Cadillac Catera was founded was used even before September 2006 in the North American Pontiac GTO, and until 2007 in the Holden Commodore and Holden Monaro models in Australia.
