Established in 1899 as the Detroit Automobile Company, Cadillac is the
oldest automobile manufacturer to originate in Detroit, Michigan. The
company is named after the French explorer who founded the city. General
Motors purchased Cadillac in 1909 and that same year Cadillac produced
almost 6,000 vehicles. Over six million vehicles had been built by the end
of the 1970s, and currently Cadillac markets its models through
approximately 1,500 dealerships.
