Cadillac Brougham

The name Brougham comes with a decent amount of respect. It has earned this name thanks to it being used on Cadillac's largest and most luxurious models since 1916. After the 1950s the name has reappeared as a trim level on other cars such as the El Dorado and the Fleetwood. Some may have remembered its reappearance as a separate model in 1985, at which point it lasted until 1992. If you are looking for a car that will command road presence and prestige all at the same time, you better be shopping for a Cadillac. It is one of the most recognizable brand names on the planet. The quality of a brand name cannot be purchased or earned overnight and Cadillac is acutely aware of this. They recognize the power of their name and are smart enough to play off if it. They even went so far as to advertising the Escalade as "The Cadillac of SUVs". In 1902, the first Cadillac was built. General Motors later purchased Cadillac and has intelligently tried to retain the quality of the brand over the years. Starting in 1987 to 1992, the Fleetwood name was used only for the somewhat smaller full wheel drive models, and the real wheel drive model was called simply Brougham. The Fleetwood name returned to the rear wheel drive model with a major redesign in 1993, at which point the Brougham was again an option package. It is somewhat hard to follow the various names of the model, yet if one is able to, they will recognize that it was the largest Cadillac model available. Because of the sheer size of the vehicle, it was also given a certain amount of respect. It is precisely this respect that Cadillac aims to sell. The company is aware that consumers have a host of options available to them in terms of driving equipment; yet only one company can sell the prestige of Cadillac.
