History of Cadillac
Founded by engineer & engine manufacturer Henry M. Leland in 1902, Cadillac is part of the General Motors family of automobile brands. Leland and financiers William Murphy and Lemuel Bowen formed the company from the ashes of the Henry Ford Motor company, which was dissolved when Henry Ford left the firm after a dispute to start the Ford Motor Company. Leland and his partners named their new company Cadillac after the founder of Detroit; 17th century French explorer Antoine Laumet de la Mothe, Sieur de Cadillac and began manufacturing Cadillac parts.
The first car was almost identical to the 1930 Ford Model A, but with a Leland single-cylinder engine and higher-quality, more-precise manufacturing. In fact, the idea of identical, interchangeable Cadillac parts was a company innovation, for which it won the Dewar Trophy in 1908. The automaker became famous its high quality and superlative finish, and was soon considered one of the worlds finest automobiles. Other cutting-edge parts innovations are the steel roof (prior automobile tops were fabric-covered wood frames), shatter-resistant glass, tail fins, automatic climate control heating/air conditioning, and airbags. The company was also the first automaker to use Phillips screws to attach parts, greatly speeding assembly time, and in the 1980s utilized variable-displacement engines to deactivate cylinders for improved fuel efficiency. Cadillac's aluminum Northstar V8 engine remains one of the most powerful yet lightweight production engines ever made, as is a favorite among motorsports and hot rod enthusiasts.
