Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

The Cutlass Ciera was in production all over, making one think it was a pretty highly sought after mode. The Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera was a mid-size car manufactured from 1982 through 1996 at the Oklahoma City plant, the Saint Therese Assembly plant, the Framingham, Massachusetts plant and the Doraville, Georgia plant. This of course was all under the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. It was based upon the front-wheel drive GM A platform, which was itself based on the earlier X platform. Available versions included a 2-door coupe, a 4-door sedan and the super hip Cutlass Cruiser station wagon, which was not added until 1984. During the 1986 model year, the coupe received a new, rounded roofline that was unique to the body style. At the same time as the Cutlass Ciera, Oldsmobile produced two other separate Cutlass models, which were the smaller Cutlass Calais and the larger Cutlass Supreme. The Cutlass Ciera was a modern makeover of Oldsmobile's famous and out of date Cutlass line. Sales however were solid and the car was produced as factory specialty models including the Holiday coupe, the GT, the International and the Eurosport models. This seems to explain the need for so many factory locations. By 1996, the Cutlass name was dropped and the car was simply called the Ciera. This car ended up being one of the best-selling cars of all time. It comes in behind the Volkswagen Beetle and the Mini. Further, the Ciera was popular with rental fleets, but even that couldn’t keep the model in production forever. Fabrication of the Ciera ended on August 30, 1996, as it was replaced in the United States by the 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass. For the movie buffs though, a 1987 Cutlass Ciera was prominently featured in the film Fargo. That is not exactly going to make someone want to drive this model though.
