About Buick Skyhawk

Being an entry-level badge-engineered version of the Chevrolet Monza, which was a revised, second-generation Chevrolet Vega, Buick Skyhawk was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's Buick Motor Division from 1975 to 1989 as a subcompact and compact car. Originally introduced to replace the Buick Opel, Skyhawk was virtually identical to the Monza and later Chevrolet Cavalier. But after being manufactured through two generations, the last Skyhawk rolled off the assembly line on June 16, 1989, as the last Buick vehicle to offer a manual transmission option until the Opel Insignia.
The first-generation Buick Skyhawk was produced from 1974 to 1980 and debuted in September 1974 as a 1975 model. Competing against small sporty cars such as Toyota Celica, Datsun 200SX, VW Scirocco, Mercury Capri and the Ford Mustang II in North American market, Skyhawk was the smallest car to wear the Buick badge. It came in trim levels including base, S and an Accent Edition as well as a Road Hawk package. During this generation, Skyhawk was powered by a 3.8 L V6 rated at 110 hp and it received power through the 4-speed, 5-speed manual and 3-speed automatic transmissions. The second-generation Skyhawk debuted at the 1982 Chicago Auto Show as the coupe, hatchback, sedan and station wagon. It added Sport and T-Type trim and got several engine options ranging from 1.8 L I4 gasoline to 2.2 L turbocharged gasoline engines. And the front wheels were driven through the 4-speed, 5-speed manual and 3-speed automatic transmissions.
