18. 1982 Cadillac Eldorado Touring Coupe

After the enormous and legendary 1978 Eldorado, Cadillac introduced the smaller, more modern 1979 model. The car featured front-wheel drive and upgraded ergonomics riding on a much shorter platform. The smaller dimensions brought new driving dynamics. And in 1982, Cadillac introduced an interesting package called the Eldorado Touring Coupe.

They marketed this car as a driver’s machine. It came with a stiffer suspension, black wall tires, the minimal use of chrome and a bucket seat interior. Due to its modifications, the 1982 to 1985 Eldorado Touring Coupe really a competent yet interesting car.

19. Cadillac ATS-V

To fight its German competitors in the compact executive class, Cadillac launched the ATS in 2013 and its performance version, the ATS-V, two years later. Soon they declared the smaller Cadillac one of the best and the fastest cars in its class.

Cadillac perfectly engineered it, so it was brutally fast. Under the hood is a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine pumping 464 HP. And it can launch the ATS-V from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds with the top speed of 189 mph.

20. Cadillac Seville STS

The Seville started as a small Cadillac back in the 1970s but by the mid-90s it had evolved into a full-size car. And it came with modern and advanced technology and some interesting features. It adopted the front-wheel drive layout but enhanced it so it offered a comfortable ride yet a convincing performance.

The late ’90s Seville STS had a 4.6-liter Northstar engine. It delivered 300 HP to the front axle, making it the most powerful FWD car they ever built up to that point. The enormous power translated into a vivid performance. In fact, the STS could achieve 0 to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds, which was faster than most ’90s muscle cars.

21. Cadillac Eldorado Sport Coupe

They produced the last and tenth generations of the legendary Cadillac Eldorado from 1992 to 2002. This marked the end of an era for one of the most respected nameplates in the industry. The last Eldorado was a quality-built machine full of luxury and power. But the market for such cars died, and so did this model.

The Eldorado Sport Coupe featured 4.6-liter V8 engine, sport-tuned suspension, a host of electronic systems and discrete styling cues. Even though those cars are inexpensive today, they will be highly-desirable classics in the future.

These are the 21 best Cadillacs they ever made. Which is your favorite? You can be driving a standard of the world that will make your neighbors jealous.
