"This is my favorite Cadillac," gushed Roger Heart @autoweekusa of the #STS. If it was a rare sentiment, few had anything particularly negative to say about the large #Caddy either.
With its balanced, rear-wheel-drive layout and its suitably muted, yet modern styling - and the optional all-wheel drive to allay the fears of loyalists accustomed to twenty years of front-wheel drive - it appeared to have the 5/ 7 series, E-Class, GS430, A6, and S-Type squarely in its sights.
Indeed, the STS was the first Cadillac sedan to be offered with all-wheel drive.
It also retained its Seville predecessor's unique Magnetic Ride Control ("Magnaride") suspension.
There was even a supercharged model, the STS-V, with a @draexlmaiergroup trimmed interior and the highest power output of any production Cadillac in the marque's one-hundred-and-five-year history.
The STS initially put up a reasonable fight, finding half the (American) homes of the BMW 5 series.
But after the drama of the 2003 CTS and 2004 SRX, this car seemed a bit of a let down. It was unexpectedly restrained, its elegant nuances almost invisible - and it was rather too similar to its smaller, cheaper brother.
Instead of leading, #Cadillac appeared to fall back.
Within four years of its launch, the STS would be upstaged by a new, larger CTS. It had never matched the sales of Seville, and now it struggled on, its numbers halving each year until its 2011 demise.
Five years later, with the launch of the CT6, the STS merited no reference by its spiritual successor.
So the STS is curiously forgotten. Yet we wouldn't be surprised if some, in retrospect, miss it - not least for the electrifying roar of that Northstar V-8. "This engine doesn’t need fuel injection. It needs a conductor," #JeremyClarkson once said.
@generalmotors @cadillac The marque which in 1915 was first to mass produce a V-8 engine, today has no bespoke V-8 to offer.
