Fleetwood Cadillac History 1985

Fleetwood Cadillac Moels & History 1985

Like the Fleetwood sedan, the Seventy-Five limousine switched to front-drive. The rear-drive version was dropped. To create the new limousine, a C-car platform (same as DeVille/Fleetwood) and coupe body were stretched almost two feet. Even so, the modern edition was more than two feet shorter than the old rear-drive, and weighed 1200 pounds less. Powertrain was the same as DeVille/Fleetwood: a transverse-mounted 4.1 liter V-8 and four-speed overdrive automatic. Rear control panels let passengers unlock the back doors, adjust climate, and control the stereo unit. The basic limousine still carried eight passengers, and a seven-passenger formal version appeared later in the model year. Fleetwood Seventy-Five limousines had power-operated mirrors, but other standard equipment similar to Fleetwood sedans. A matching formal Cabriolet vinyl roof was available. Aluminum alloy wheels were made standard on limos.
