Fleetwood Cadillac Moels & History 1985

Fleetwood coupes and sedans carried the same standard equipment as the DeVille duo, along with

  • wire wheel covers
  • opera lamps
  • dual comfort front seats
  • a limousine-style back window

Powertrains were the same as DeVille’s. This was the final year for Fleetwood as a separate model. In 1986 it would become a DeVille option package. Fleetwood prices began at $21,495, which was more than $3000 higher than DeVille.
