The Cavalier was a model of the Chevrolet that went into production between 1982 and 2003. In the 20 years or so that it was in production, the Cavalier saw some improvements and changes made to the engine and to the look of the car. These car would compete with imports like the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic.

The first generation of this model went into production in 1981 and was a front wheel car with a two carburetor pushrod engine that had 4 cylinders.

In 1988, the second generation of this model went on production and this saw three trim levels made. These were the VL, RS and z24 models. The VL and the RS came with a 2.0 liter l4 engine that produced 90 hp while the z24 model had the 2.8 liter v6 engine that was optional on the RS models. In all of these models, the 5- speed automatic transmission was used. In 1989, the v6 engine that was available was modified to give 130hp. The standard engine was later expanded into the 2.2 litter l4 option, which saw a surge of the engine power to 95 hp.
