Oldsmobile’s Success Standard drivetrain on the new 1971 Oldsmobile Toro­nado included a mighty 455-cid V-8 hooked up to a special split Turbo Hydra-matic 400 transmission that let the big engine remain in the north-south alignment typical of rear-drive cars. Beginning with 1971, the engine was calibrated to run on low-lead, no-lead, or regular-grade gasoline rather than premium as a result of a reduction in compression ratio to 8.5:1. Horsepower dipped, too, down 25 from 1970 to 350 bhp at 4,200 rpm. The Toro’s Rocket 455 engine incorporated dual exhausts and a forced-air induction system for improved response, and positive valve rotators ensured extended valve life, but none ...

2002 Oldsmobile Bravada Bigger, sleeker, surprisingly sophisticated. The General Motors trio of medium-size sport-utility vehicles — the Chevrolet Blazer, the GMC Jimmy and Envoy, and the Oldsmobile Bravada—have soldiered along with surprisingly strong sales, given their dated platform and powertrain, but they’re bolstered by incentives. They’re also overdue for an update, and for the 2002 model year, they’ll get one. Boy, will they. First out of the box will be the Oldsmobile Bravada in the first quarter of 2001, followed by the GMC Envoy (the Jimmy is dead) and the Chevrolet TrailBlazer (ditto the Blazer). All three share a new engine and an all-new platform, ...

1999OldsmobileAlero Review By Richard Truett

1999 Oldsmobile Alero Manufacturer s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as sticker price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.

The Cars That Killed GM: The Oldsmobile Diesel Home Features The Cars That Killed GM: The Oldsmobile Diesel As far as I know, Rudolf Diesel and Richard Milhous Nixon had little in common, other than being white guys.  But had Herr Diesel kept an enemies list like Nixon, at least one from beyond the grave, I m certain that GM would have been at the top of the list.  No single engine did more to sully the good reputation of the diesel engine in North America than the Oldsmobile Diesel.  Nor did any single engine do more to kill GM.   The Olds division one of the few nameplates ever to sell more than a million cars in a year in the USA may even be among the living had it not been for ...
