About Oldsmobile Cutlass

Though it appeared first on 1962 Oldsmobile's F-85 coupe sporting unique trim, Oldsmobile Cutlass was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's brand Oldsmobile from 1961 to 1988, and again between 1997 and 1999 as compact and mid-size cars. Originally introduced as a top trim level, the Cutlass evolved into a line of its own in 1964. As Oldsmobile's best-selling model, one of the most popular nameplates in the industry and created the Cutlass family, it still was replaced by the Oldsmobile Alero for the 1999 model year after being manufactured through six generations.
The fifth-generation Oldsmobile Cutlass was produced from 1978 to 1988 with several body styles including Salon and Salon Brougham 4-door sedan, 4-door fastback sedan and Supreme, Supreme Brougham and Calais 5-door station wagon, 2-door coupe and 2-door fastback coupe. It came with three trim levels: base, LS and Brougham. During this generation, Oldsmobile Cutlass was powered by engines ranging from 3.8 L V6 to 5.7 L V8 and engines sent power to the front wheels. The latest-generation Cutlass was revived in 1997 as a slightly upscale version of the mechanically identical fifth-generation Chevrolet Malibu. Built based on the N-body platform, the Cutlass only got one 3.1 L V6 engine and power was sent through a 4-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels.
