For 1992, the Brougham sedan retained its distinction as America’s longest production vehicle, but was not subject to “gas guzzler” taxes in 1992.
Cadillac’s only rear-wheel drive sedan — again also available in d’Elegance trim (option code V4S)– was basically a carry-over from the previous year, except that Brougham’s appearance was improved by a new, more durable base coat/clear coat paint process.
The 5.0-liter V-8 coupled to the Hydra-matic 4L60 four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive remained as the standard powertrain.
The 5.7-liter V-8 was again optional equipment, but required when the trailer-towing, Coachbuilder, or Armoring options were ordered.
The Brougham again also was available with the Funeral Coach Package (option code B9Q) for aftermarket conversion to funeral service.
In this configuration, only the 5.0-liter V-8 was offered.
The 1992 Cadillac had a 17-symbol vehicle identification number (VIN) stamped on a metal tag attached to the upper left surface of the cowl visible through the windshield. The digits of the code were as follows:
First digit = “1” = manufacturing country (United States)
Second = “G” = General Motors
Third = “6” = Cadillac
Fourth & fifth = car line/series — D/W=Brougham
Sixth = the body style: 5 = four-door sedan
Seventh = restraint code
1-active (manual) belts
2-active (manual) belts w/dual airbags
3-active (manual) belts w/driver’s side airbag
4-passive (automatic) belts
5-passive (automatic) belts w/driver’s side airbag
Eighth = the engine:
“E”-L03 5.0L V-8
“7”-L05 5.7L V-8
Ninth = check digit
10th = model year, “N” for 1992
11th = the assembly plant
The remaining six digits identify the production sequence number
