The iconic luxury car has been out of production for decades. However, the latest rumors suggest it might come back in the near future, maybe already in a year or two. The same reports suggest that GM’s luxury division will finally change the naming policy, which indicates we could see familiar nameplates as well. At this point, everything is just a rumor, including the 2021 Cadillac Eldorado. Therefore, we can only speculate about the possible comeback. If this happens, there’s no doubt it will be one biggest news in the automotive industry in recent times.
2021 Cadillac Eldorado Redesign
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is how this model would look like. At this point, we can only speculate, so take the following paragraphs with a reserve.
Good Old Eldorado
Of course, the first scenario that comes to mind is that we are about to see 2021 Cadillac Eldorado in a familiar manner. This means a familiar coupe and convertible design. For that occasion, we presume that the new model would derivate from the CT6, which rides on the Omega platform. There is also a possibility to see a completely new model, considering that the full-size sedan has been around for some time.
In any case, this will be a pretty large car, definitely with more than 120 inches in wheelbase, despite we are talking about a vehicle with just two doors. Of course, a super-luxurious interior is a certain thing, while the engine lineup will definitely consist of V8 engines. Of course, the new 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 is the first one that comes to mind, but we might see versions with a 6.2-liter engine as well.
Another possibility is to see this nameplate in use for a new flagship sedan. If we take that Cadillac will change the naming policy, it seems quite possible to see this nameplate in use for a full-size sedan. If this happens, the 2021 Cadillac Eldorado will change as a replacement for the CT6, so we may count on similar proportions and overall design approach.
2021 Cadillac Eldorado – Crossover
Although it may sound surprising, this is actually a quite possible option for the 2021 Cadillac Eldorado. Simply, crossovers are the most popular segment of the automotive industry, so one of them might take the famous nameplate as well. If that happens, we presume the new model would come as a flagship crossover. It wouldn’t take the place of the Escalade, which is still a traditional body-on-frame SUV, but it would be similar in size, maybe even longer. Therefore, we would see three spacious rows of seats, plenty of luxury and powerful engines. That would be a direct rival to German full-size crossovers, such as Mercedes-Benz GLS, BWW X7 etc.
2021 Cadillac Eldorado Release Date
None of these scenarios has been confirmed yet. At this point, we can only speculate and hope that the company will soon say something about the 2021 Cadillac Eldorado. According to unofficial reports, that could happen already in a year or two.
