During 1986, sales of the Brougham increased by more than 30 percent. One result was a major effort to further improve its overall interior, exterior, and mechanical features. A new cross-hatch grille, revised header molding and new park and turn signal lamps were introduced. Red reflexes were added to the rear panel and a Cadillac script replaced the Fleetwood script on the deck lid. Brougham script replaced Fleetwood Brougham on the quarter panels. The upgraded d’Elegance version shared the features of the 1986 model along with the changes found in the Brougham. A new tri-color saddle interior combination was used on both models. The Brougham’s parking lamp and rear taillights were changed from gold to silver.
