The GM have decided to revive this American icon and rumors are that 2018 Cadillac Eldorado might reincarnate next year. One of the most iconic Cadillac’s that has been drawing wows for these last 50 years is the Cadillac Eldorado. Started as early as 1952, Eldorado has been the ultimate personal luxury sedan, while convertible versions have been every man’s dream. However, production of this vehicle was stopped back in 2002 bringing to an end a classic lineage of an amazing vehicle. But it seems it wasn’t quite the end.
The most significant competition will be faced by Mercedes S-class convertible and also BMW 6-series.
2018 Cadillac Eldorado – Engine Specs
The engine of Cadillac Eldorado 2018 can come in different options. Some sources believe that just like the hybrid version named Ciel, the production model may have a combo of a 3.6-liter twin turbocharged V6 engine and an electric motor.
Other reports suggest that its hood may house a 4.8-liter V8 engine, a classical case of this vehicle. In any case, power is not supposed to be below 500 hp. As far as fuel efficiency goes, this new Eldorado is expected to yield a 16 mpg inside the city, while expressways will be more economical, say 23 mpg.
2018 Cadillac Eldorado – Design
Quite obviously, this new Cadillac Eldorado 2018 is set to shed its archaic looks for a more next-gen appearance. A minimalist design for the headlights and an aerodynamic design will make the appearance very futuristic. Expect both the front and rear to be LED-laden.
The concept version of the vehicle came in a 4-door version, but the 2-door coupe variant will also be available. Convertibles will obviously be released since that was the biggest appeal of the Eldorado through the generations.
The automakers have obviously been very tight-lipped about re-launching this legendary vehicle, so the interiors have not been too easy to predict. The fact that the last version was available back in 2002 does not help either.
But luxury is supposed to be the prime intention for the manufacturers. Organic leather for upholstery, more than enough leg room and smartphone app integration could be expected in this brand new rendition of a legendary vehicle. Its cabin will also feature some fancy rosewood trim in all likeliness.
A modern infotainment system and space for four passengers is the minimum you can expect in the 2018 Cadillac Eldorado.
2018 Cadillac Eldorado – Expected Release Date and Price
The 2018 Cadillac Eldorado will be out sometime in 2017, more specifically mid-2017. While due to the confidential nature of production an expected price has been hard to get. This reincarnation of the iconic American sedan could be available for $82,000 for the base models.
