The 1970 model year was an impressive beginning to a new decade. During this Decade, Cadillac styling became more graceful and restrained as Bill Mitchell gradually unified the design. Freedom of spirit and a taste for luxury are combined magnificently in the 1970 Models. The long, low styling approach set Cadillac apart from other luxury makes and was a new refreshing look for the seventies. To the American public, Cadillac remained a symbol of prestige, success, and good taste.
DeVilles had all of the same features as Calais models, plus dual rear cigarette lighters, Two-Way horizontal control front seat adjusters and rear center arm rest in all models except convertibles. Exterior distinction came from a DeVille script above the rear end of the belt molding and from the use of long, rectangular backup light lenses set into the lower rear bumper, as opposed to the smaller, square lenses used on Calais. A new feature seen this year was a body color border around the edges of the vinyl top covering, when this option was ordered. This treatment had first been seen on 1969 Fleetwoods. The Sedan DeVille and Convertible DeVille were in their last season.
