The Gen II 5.7-liter V-8 that powered the Fleetwood sedan and its upscale optional Brougham package model was upgraded for 1995.
In addition to the aforementioned PG260 starter that all Cadillacs received, the rear-drive Fleetwood’s V-8 now also featured Quiet Cam.
This revised camshaft design, in conjunction with new sound and vibration reducing composite rocker arm covers, decreased engine mechanical noise and eliminated valve noise on the outside of the car.
Again, the 4L60-E electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission saw service with the Gen II V-8.
For 1995, the 4L60-E featured a 298mm torque converter clutch assembly that had a higher torque capacity, which enhanced the unit’s durability.
Formerly optional equipment that was made standard included remote keyless entry, central door unlocking and automatic door locks and electrochromic inside rearview mirror with new map lights.
Other new standard features included ASR5 traction control; larger, foldaway, patch-mounted outside rearview mirrors; quiet door latch system; ignition key anti-lockout feature; revised instrument panel top pad; “SIR Airbag” embossed label for passenger side; and two new exterior color choices: Fawn Gray and Calypso Green.
The Brougham sedan added a programmable garage door opener and an upgraded electronic lumbar system for seat adjustments.
Also on the Brougham, the optional V4R security package was restructured to include the theft deterrent system and auto lock/unlock fuel filler door.
For 1995, Fleetwood also received increased capacity of the Electronic Control Unit that provided more convenient traction control on/off capability.
A toggle switch in the glovebox allowed the traction control to be switched off and on without restarting the engine.
As in previous years, the Fleetwood could also be ordered as the V4U Coachbuilder Limousine Package, B9Q Funeral Coach Package, or RIP Heavy-Duty Sedan Package with heavy-duty components required for continuous commercial service
