The 2003 Cadillac Deville is a full-size sedan that comes with a navigation system in the base model. The exterior mirrors come with a turn signal, and the taillights have an enhanced look. It was the first vehicle to integrate Night Vision technology, which is a special panel specifically for night driving. The panel lies on the windshield within the peripheral vision of the driver without being a distraction. This panel, using thermal imaging technology, projects images that are similar to black and white photography negatives. It highlights objects that are three to five times ahead of the furthest extreme of the headlamps that are potentially dangerous such as animals, humans, and cars.
