Sharing chassis with the Oldsmobile Toronado, Buick Riviera and Cadillac Seville, Eldorado was available as a 2-door coupe in the base, Touring and Biarritz trim levels. During this generation, Eldorado was powered by 4.1 L V8, 4.5 L V8 and 4.9 L V8 engines in succession, and these engines sent power through the 4-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels.
