In another blast from the past video, we’re shown the updates made to the General Motors vehicle lineup for 1995.
For Chevrolet, the Lumina sedan was “new” as well as the Geo Metro, and the Monte Carlo coupe had been reintroduced. Meanwhile, the J-body Chevy Cavalier became the lowest priced car to offer both dual air-bags and ABS as standard features, and the Camaro and Pontiac Firebird had finally offered traction control. Oh yeah, way back, when the Blazer (and GMC Jimmy) were the hot-selling SUVs of the day.
Of course, this was a time when Oldsmobile, Pontiac, and Saturn were still in the picture. Oldsmobile had quite a few updated models. The Aurora was a competitive luxury sedan that had cost $32,000 back then – a car you can now find on Craigslist for under two grand. The Cutlass received a new interior, and the Eighty-Eight and Ninety-Eight sedans saw a power increase thanks to a newer version of GM’s 3.8L V6. The LSS boasted a supercharged V6, which was also utilized by the Buick Riviera.
To catch the rest of the history lesson, go ahead and watch the video. You can indulge in nostalgia, or be thankful that today we have cars that look like the Chevrolet C7 Corvette and Cadillac CTS-V.
