GM was facing a real dilemma in the 1970s. Imported cars from Germany were being recognized for their quality parts and workmanship, and Japanese cars were carving out new territory in the economically inspired small car category. Low Mileage Chevrolet Cavalier Used Engines are a fast inexpensive solution, call Usedengines.co now.
GM, Ford, and Chrysler had a captive audience for over sixty years, but that audience was becoming restless due to inferior workmanship, oil embargoes, and fast talking 1970s salesmen that could sell yellow snow to the Eskimos.
The Chevy division came up with a contemporary compact car that would stop declining sales figures, and help every other division except Cadillac stand up to the foreign invaders that were gaining the respect of American car buyers.
The Chevy Cavalier was built on GMs J- car platform. The compact front wheel drive car with a 1.8 litre, 2-carburetor push rod, 4-cylinder engine, rolled off production lines in 1982, and America stood up and took notice. In 1983, the 4-cylinder Cavalier got throttle-body fuel injection and a 2.8 liter V6 engine was under the hood in 1985.
The Pontiac Sunbird and the Cavalier were kissing cousins in terms of engine size and trim levels. The 1983 convertible models started a trend for fuel conscious sun-birds that wanted to enjoy the beach roads and highways or just tool around town with the top down. Cadillac tried to market the Cimarron on the same platform, but it spelled disaster for the brand in terms of entering the compact fuel efficient car scene.
The snappy Cavalier convertible, and the Z24 model appealed to a broad consumer base that wanted something fun to drive without destroying their monthly budget. The 1.8 litre and 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engines with a 4-speed, 5-speed, or 3-speed automatic provided basic transportation to car buyers that wanted to buy American cars. The Cavalier was the best selling car in the States in the late 1980s and the second generation Cavalier kept that title through 1995.
Sequential fuel injection appeared in the 1994, 2.2 litre, OHV 4-cylinder engine, and the power output increased to 120 horsepower. The Cavalier received the LD9 2.4 litre engine in 1996, which has 150 horsepower with 155 ft-lbs of torque. The Z24 was dropped in 2003, and LS sports line took its place with a Ecotec L61 engine, which produces 140 horsepower and 150 ft-lbs of torque.
