These Guys Actually Thought The Cadillac Cimarron Was A Good Car


Exsqueeze me? A baking powder?

It’s the source of many jokes and epitomized everything that was wrong with GM and Cadillac in the 1980s. The Cadillac Cimarron, originally launched in 1982, was nothing more than a rebadged Chevrolet Cavalier. The idea, shockingly, was for it to compete with German imports of the time, such as the original BMW 3 Series. We know. Shocking, isn’t it? Anyway, the Cimarron managed to remain in production until 1988. And, to its credit, Cadillac attempted to fix some of its shortcomings, but there really was little to no hope.

But Motor Week actually liked the revised 1983 model. Now, we love Motor Week. Many of us here grew up watching the show, but still, the Cimarron? A good car?! Something that’ll help the Cadillac brand as a whole? History has proven that good and wrong.
