Cimarron Cadillac Moels & History 1984

Cimarron’s new crosshatch grille had a bolder look, but kept the Cadillac script at lower left corner. The new front end was evidently designed with a V-6 in mind — but that wouldn’t be available just yet. The fuel-injected 2.0-liter four remained standard, with five-speed manual gearbox or optional three-speed automatic.

Three new stripe insert colors (white, red, orange) were offered for bumper rub strips, end caps and bodyside moldings; plus gold for the Cimarron d’Oro. Foglamps introduced in 1983 continued as standard. A new rear-end lighting arrangement used horizontal upper red stop/taillamps, accented with flush-mounted winged Cadillac crest ornamentation. New amber turn signal lamps and more dominant white backup lamps were below the red tail/stop lamps. Interiors were now available in combinations of leather and cloth. Pushbutton heat/vent controls now had accent lights. A 24-position click-stop temperature control lever allowed more precise settings. Optional cruise control now included acceleration/deceleration capability. Cimarron prices began at $12,614.

The special edition Cimarron d’Oro, introduced during 1983, was available again with distinctive Sable Black body, highlighted by goldtone accents that replaced all the body chrome. D’Oro also sported black bumpers, headlamp bezels, rip rail and window reveal moldings, wheel opening and rocker panel moldings, and door handles. Goldtone touches included the grille; a lay-down “Cadillac Cimarron” hood ornament; accent stripes on hood center, body beltline, bumper rub strips and bodyside moldings; “D’Oro” fender plaques; Cimarron trunk lid script; a “2.0-Liter Fuel Injection” plaque on the trunk lid; and winged Cadillac crest ornamentation on taillamps. Gold also tinted the steering wheel spokes and horn pad emblem. In an effort to attract younger motorists to the black/gold small Caddy, radio commercials played an upbeat jingle promoting the “Cimarron touch.”
