The late 1980s weren't a particularly happy time for Cadillac. The venerable DeVille and Fleetwood nameplates had been placed on smallish new front-wheel drive models. Those cars looked like traditional Cadillacs only when compared with the tiny Cimarron, which was little more than a Chevy Cavalier dressed up as a Cadillac.

The late 1980s weren't a particularly happy time for Cadillac. The venerable DeVille and Fleetwood nameplates had been placed on smallish new front-wheel drive models. Those cars looked like traditional Cadillacs only when compared with the tiny Cimarron, which was little more than a Chevy Cavalier dressed up as a Cadillac. Buyers looking for a GM-built alternative to Lincoln's Town Car had but one choice: the Brougham.

The Brougham was, in fact, a simple carryover from the previous year's Fleetwood Brougham--which was completely different from that year's aforementioned front-wheel drive non-Brougham Fleetwood. The 1987 Brougham's basic platform first appeared in 1977, on the downsized DeVille and Fleetwood models. Of course, downsized or not, the Brougham was a large car by any standards. It rode on a 121.5-inch wheelbase, had an overall length of more than 18 feet, and weighed more than two tons.

By 1987 Cadillac's adventures with inappropriate engines were behind it. Most Broughams built during the nameplate's short life as a separate model were equipped with either a 140-horsepower Oldsmobile 5-liter V-8 or, starting in 1991, a 170-horsepower Chevrolet V-8 of the same displacement. Starting in 1990, a 5.7-liter Chevrolet V-8 became available. This option was offered to address the complaints of commercial customers (such as "stretch" manufacturers) who found the smaller engines too weak to cope with the extra weight of their conversions. Other heavy-duty components included the transmission, suspension, rear axle assembly, and cooling system.

The Brougham's standard interior could be made truly opulent with the selection of the "d'Elegance" package, which had been available as an option on various Cadillac models since the 1970s. For 1990 the Brougham was given a modest, but effective, facelift and the interior got a digital dashboard.

Cadillac gave the car an all-new body for 1993, at which time it regained the Fleetwood model name. The Brougham designation reverted to its original (1965) use and was applied to an upgraded trim and interior package.
