An American classic reborn.
Reviewed by Automotive on
The 1995 Cadillac Eldorado is luxury car manufactured by General Motors and was introduced in 1953, making it one of the longest running personal luxury cars in the United States. Throughout its production life, it has always been among the topmost models of the lineup in terms of price.
Engines: 4.9-liter V-8, 4.6-liter V-8
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: Cadillac Eldorado, Cadillac Eldorado Touring
The 1995 Cadillac Eldorado Northstar V-8 engine has undergone some revisions that result in greater power. It's now fitted with electronic chassis controls that automatically calculate the steering angle while evaluating what to do with the ABS, traction control, and Road Sensing Suspension system. It also gets some exterior revisions, and its headlights now come with a system that switches them on automatically when the windshield wipers are activated.
The 1995 Cadillac Eldorado was introduced in 1992 and is approximately 11 inches longer than previous generations. The window glass is frameless and gets some updated front and rear bumpers with side cladding and a new grille. It has a wheelbase of 108 inches and a length of approximately 200 inches. The width and height is 75.5 inches and 54 inches respectively.
The 1995 Cadillac Eldorado offers a good amount of interior space. The front seats offer lots of legroom and headroom, and the rear seat is also quite spacious for a coupe. However, the rear seatback is a little too reclined for comfort. Moreover, the driver’s visibility is impaired toward the rear due to the huge, thick rear pillars. On a positive note, the trunk is quite large. Up front, the buttons for air-conditioning and heating are located somewhere behind the steering wheel, which makes them difficult to see and use while driving. The front bucket seats are supportive, although the lumbar bolstering is not as good as expected.
Performance & Handling
The 1995 Cadillac Eldorado's base engine is a 4.9-liter, V-8 engine that delivers 275 horsepower. Its powerful 4.6-liter, Northstar V-8 engine is now even more powerful, delivering 300 horsepower. Despite its weight, both V-8 engines do a great job in delivering brisk performance. The 4.9-liter engine offers lively acceleration, but the Northstar engine offers an amazing adrenaline-fueled driving experience. This particular engine takes the Eldorado from standstill to 60 mph within 7.5 seconds, which is two seconds faster than the timing of the base. Unlike the previous generation, it does not wallow or bob around corners or over dips. The steering is precise, and both models are very stable at high speeds and while tackling tight corners.
The 1995 Cadillac Eldorado doesn't have crash test data available.
