About Chevrolet Prizm

Deriving from the Japanese domestic market Toyota Sprinter, Chevrolet Prizm was produced by the New United Motor Manufacturing, Inc. (NUMMI), an automobile company jointly owned by General Motors and Toyota between 1988 and 2002. Previously called as Geo Prizm, Chevrolet Prizm did not get this name until 1998. Originally introduced to replace the Chevrolet Nova, Prizm under the Chevrolet Prizm was actually available for one generation. In the end, the production of Chevrolet Prizm ended in 2002 and it was replaced by the Pontiac Vibe due to decreased sales, low popularity and being in competition with the Chevrolet Cavalier.
The second-generation Chevrolet Prizm was produced from 1992 to 1997 under the Geo tag as a 4-door sedan. It came in two trim levels: base and LSi. Featured a driver's side airbag, a rear stabilizer bar, wider tires, Prizm was powered by a 1.6 L I4 rated at 105 hp and a 1.8 L I4 and engines sent power through the 5-speed manual, 3-speed and 4-speed automatic transmissions. The last-generation Prizm got the Chevrolet badge and front anti-roll bar. Back then, Prizm only got one engine, the 1.8 L I4 rated at 125 horsepower. And power was sent through the 5-speed manual, 3-speed and 4-speed automatic transmissions to the front wheels.
