The American automaker General Motors has a section called Cadillac Motor Car Division that specializes in designing and producing luxury automobiles. China, Canada, and the US are its main export markets. 34 other markets across the world are where Cadillac vehicles are sold.


From the remains of the Henry Ford Company, Cadillac was created. In March 1902, Henry Ford and a number of his major partners quit the business following a disagreement between Ford and his investors. In order to prepare for the sale of the company's assets, Ford's financial backers William Murphy and Lemuel Bowen hired engineer Henry M. Leland of Leland & Faulconer Manufacturing Company. Instead, Leland convinced the two to keep producing cars with his successful single-cylinder engine. The Henry Ford Corporation facility at Cass Street and Amsterdam Avenue was converted on August 22, 1902, to become the new company known as the Cadillac Automobile Company. It was given that name in honor of the French adventurer and founder of Detroit, Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac.
