1995 Cadillac Fleetwood Review

One of the last big rear-drive sedans available.

Reviewed by Automotive on


The 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood is a luxury car manufactured by General Motors and introduced in 1984, but the original model can be traced back to 1925. During that time, Fisher Body Company, an umbrella corporation of General Motors, bought the Fleetwood Body Company. It was known for producing luxury trim levels of Cadillac cars after its purchase and the subsequent monopoly of Fisher by GM in 1927. By 1965, models were a subseries but was only launched as a standalone car in 1985 when it based on a front-drive C-body platform.

Models: Cadillac Fleetwood

What's New

The 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood gets an on/off switch for the traction control system. The engine gets platinum-tipped spark plugs so that it only needs to be tuned every 100,000 miles. It also gets an anti-lockout feature along with central unlocking, remote keyless entry, and foldaway outside mirrors. Garage door openers can be fitted as an optional feature.


The 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood is part of the second generation that began in 1993. It uses a rear-drive D-body platform instead of the front-drive C-body. With a total length of 225 inches, it's the longest production car in the automotive history of the United States. It has a wheelbase of 121.5 inches, a width of 78 inches, and its height is around 57 inches. It's available with a Brougham option package that makes some significant changes to its exterior design. The package includes sail panel badging and a full vinyl top.


The 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood is wide enough to accommodate three adults across the front and rear seats with enough shoulder room. Legroom and headroom are good up front, but the rear seat lacks the legroom for passengers to stretch themselves comfortably. The front seats use a split-frame design so that the lower cushion can be adjusted independent of the seatback, which allow it to be adjusted to a greater range of comfortable positions for the front passenger and driver. On the other hand, the rear seat are firmer, but no less comfortable than the seats available with the Brougham package.

The 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood is actually quite spacious in the rear apart from the slight shortage of legroom, but the cushion does not provide enough thigh support. Up front, the dashboard design is uncluttered and easily usable. The trunk is spacious enough to hold several suitcases at the very least.

Performance & Handling

The 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood uses a 5.7-liter, V-8 engine, which was borrowed from the famed Chevrolet Corvette sports coupe. The engine delivers 260 horsepower 335 lb-ft of torque. It expectedly gives it swift takeoff speeds with a vigorous performance while passing through highway traffic. Power is readily available at the lightest tap of the gas pedal, no matter what the speed band. The suspension system is relatively firm, so the soft and plush ride of older versions is definitely missing. Body lean is excessive as well, but steering is firm.


The 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood doesn't have any crash test data available.
