The Cutlass Ciera was a new front-wheel drive model offered as a sedan, coupe, or station wagon built as part of the expansion of the Cutlass brand. The combination of conservative styling and simple engineering made the car a major success in the US and abroad. It had a relatively long production cycle from 1982-1996 but Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera parts remained relatively unchanged in that time. The coupe model was discontinued after 1991. A station wagon version was known as the Cutlass Ciera Cruiser. For many model years, it was the best-selling car in the Oldsmobile lineup. Oddly, the Cutlass name was dropped for the 1996 and the car became just the Ciera. It was ultimately replaced by an all-new Cutlass based on the Chevrolet Malibu.
