About Cadillac Fleetwood
Cadillac's flagship luxury automobile is known as the Fleetwood. Since the year 1935, the term Fleetwood has been used as a prefix on a number of different Cadillac vehicles. When compared to conventional Cadillac vehicles, the four-door variant often has a wheelbase that is longer. In 1984, all of the cars had a rear-wheel-drive configuration. The moniker was used for new front-wheel-drive (FWD) cars that were comparable to the DeVille of the same time between the years 1985 and 1992. The front-wheel-drive version of the vintage Fleetwood was manufactured up until 1992.
In 1985, the car was spun out into its own distinct series. A rear-wheel-drive (RWD) suspension was used for the Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham. In 1978, the only thing that differentiated the Fleetwood from its counterpart was the color of the exterior. The push-button seats and other optional parts were part of the Elegance package. It was available as an upgrade for the front-wheel-drive sedan. The manufacture of the Coupe was discontinued after the 1986 model year, but it was resumed the next year when the 1987 model year rolled around.

In 1987 and 1988, a new Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special was offered with a longer 115.8-inch version of the new C body. In 1988, the 4.1-liter HT-4100 aluminum V8 was replaced by the HT-4500 V8. The makeover of the range took place in 1989. The more expensive Cadillac Fleetwood and Sixty Special models had bumpers over the rear wheels. For 1990, the same 4.5-liter engine was uprated to 180 hp with a two-speed intake manifold and other parts.
In 1993, the name was changed to a new and improved RWD D-Type model. It was one of the first FWD American cars to be replaced by a rear-wheel-drive model. With an overall length of 225 inches, the vehicle was the longest car produced in the United States at the time. All Fleetwood cars, except the commercial chassis, featured parts like anti-lock brakes, traction control and dual front air brakes as standard. The majority of sedans that were manufactured during those years were given a Fleetwood chassis in lieu of the original chassis between 1993 and 1996.
