1998 Cadillac Eldorado Review

A classic Caddy with some kick.

Reviewed by Automotive on


The 1998 Cadillac Eldorado has a coupe body style that is available in two models: the base model and the Touring. It was introduced in 1992 and helped Cadillac recover from a few years of bad reviews by installing a Northstar V-8 engine.

What's New

The 1998 Cadillac Eldorado gets a new redesigned radio and an electrochromatic mirror. There are more programmable features in this year’s model as well. Stabilitrak, an integrated chassis system is included in both models as a standard feature.


The 1998 Cadillac Eldorado gets exterior rearview mirrors that are powered and heated to ensure better visibility in cold weather. The rear window is also equipped with a rear defroster to keep the view as clear as possible. Dual exhaust and remote keyless entry is standard on both the base model and the Touring. Fog lights are installed for extra visibility and add style to the car’s front end. The headlamps are auto on and delay off for extra convenience. Tinted glass and 16-inch wheels are also standard on both models.


The 1998 Cadillac Eldorado receives seats that are upholstered with leather. The steering wheel is also trimmed with leather in both models, but leather trim on the shift knob is only available on the Touring. A genuine wood dashboard insert adds extra style to the interior. The front seats are heated and power adjustable to keep the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. The maximum seating capacity for this vehicle is five; two passengers can fit in the front bucket seats while three can fit in the rear bench seat.

Performance & Handling

The 1998 Cadillac Eldorado is powered by the 4.6-liter Northstar V-8 engine and is front-wheel drive. This engine is capable of cranking out 300 horsepower and 292 lb-ft of torque. Both models are equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission. The stability system helps reduce the risk of losing control and senses the road texture to adjust the anti-lock brake system. Previous and satisfied drivers rave that it's fast and responsive.


The 1998 Cadillac Eldorado has dual front impact airbags installed in the front. The security system is standard on the Touring, but costs extra on the base Eldorado. It also comes standard with anti-lock brakes and traction control, which helps it get the most out of any road surface.
