As a dynamic device, the automobile is an amalgam of various systems: Drivetrain, brakes, suspension and tires all play their individual and essential roles. And while such an approach is sufficient for commonplace automobiles, Cadillac felt compelled to create a higher standard. It is the Northstar System. In sum, it is a precise orchestration of engineering, scored to draw each system of an automobile into perfect harmony with the next while focusing the whole toward a unified purpose. For the very special automobiles you'll find in this catalog, that purpose is control. It is a sense of confidence and response that has never been created in a luxury automobile before. From that perspective, the Northstar System is not so much a triumph of technology as it is a benchmark of innovation.
