2016 Cadillac Eldorado Review

It has been a long wait and journey to see the real 2016 Cadillac Eldorado. Eldorado was first manufactured in 1953, and has been a legendary luxurious coupe. Unfortunately, the production was stopped in 2002.

The rumors about that legend’s reborn has been spreading widely. However, there has been no sign of its development until 2013. People who were curious suddenly turn into suspicious when Cadillac unveiled its concept car named as Cadillac Elmiraj. Will it be the new Eldorado?

The statement of saying Elmiraj will be the 2016 Cadillac Eldorado is not an instant guess. It begins with the unveiling of Cadillac Ciel concept in 2011. The design of the convertible Ciel looks so classic and luxurious as well. However, GM announced that the Ciel is not for mass production, it is just a concept car.

Two years later, in 2013, GM unveiled another concept car; Cadillac Elmiraj. The design is really alike with Ciel, but with a more modern touch without losing its sense of classic. It shows that Ciel was not just a flight of fancy, there must be reasons for GM to develop it into Cadillac Elmiraj.

The classic and overwhelmingly luxurious look on Elmiraj reminds everyone of the legendary Cadillac Eldorado. The vast length, the sculpture, the luxurious look, and tons of classy features which other cars do not have, is why it is very similar to the legendary Eldorado. That’s why Elmiraj is claimed as the future Cadillac Eldorado.
