The 1970 DeVille received a facelift that included a grille with 13 vertical blades set against a delicately cross-hatched rectangular opening. The bright metal headlamp surrounds were met with more body color paint for a more refined look. Narrow vertical "vee" taillights were seen again.

Exterior distinction for the DeVille were the tiffany-like DeVille scripts above the rear end of the belt molding and the use of long rectangular backup light lenses set into the lower bumper as opposed to the smaller square lenses used on the Calais.

1970 would be the last model year for pillared sedans until hardtops were permanently dropped in 1977. It was also the last year the DeVille ever offered the convertible body style.

DeVille's accounted for 76% of Cadillac sales in 1970 - never again would Cadillac sales be dominated to such a degree by a single model.
