1995 Chevrolet Caprice Review

Stands its ground in a crowded market.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 1995 Chevrolet Caprice is a full-size car available in a sedan or wagon. It is manufactured by the Chevrolet division of General Motors. The car was originally launched in 1965, when the sales of full-size Chevrolet models peaked with over one million sales recorded. The full-sized Chevrolet turned out to become the most popular American car in the 1960s and during the early 70s.

The Caprice was first introduced as a luxury trim level of the popular Impala hardtop, but Chevrolet launched a separate line of Caprice models in 1966. The 1995 Chevrolet Caprice is part of the fourth generation, which launched in 1991 with a complete interior and exterior redesign.

The Range

Body Styles: sedan, wagon
Engines: 4.3-liter V-8, 5.7-liter V-8
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: Chevrolet Caprice

What's New

The 1995 Chevrolet Caprice sedan now gets the same rear roof pillar adopted in the 1994 Impala SS. This year also marks the introduction of new seats and a new radio system. The outside mirrors have been modified so that they can folded in, and the car now comes with an optional radio along with speed-compensated volume control.

Exterior

The 1995 Chevrolet Caprice is significantly more aerodynamic than the previous models were. When the fourth generation was launched, the 1977-based rectilinear design had been done away with to make way for a more rounded sheet metal.

Interior

The 1995 Chevrolet Caprice is not only roomy, but also soft and luxurious. Both front and rear seats offer plenty of headroom, but legroom is compromised up front due to the bulky transmission. Even the central passenger in the rear suffers from the same problem.

The 1995 Chevrolet Caprice’s trunk is large and can hold a large amount of cargo with ease. Up front, the controls are logically placed and large enough to be easily seen and used. The Caprice comes with power steering, power locks, rear window wiper, air-conditioning, cloth seating, AM/FM radio, and a cassette player.

Performance & Handling

The 1995 Chevrolet Caprice is available with a 4.3-liter, V-8 engine that delivers 200 horsepower. An optional engine is the 5.7-liter, V-8 engine derived from the Chevrolet Corvette sports coupe. This particular engine provides 260 horsepower. Both engines come with a four-speed automatic shift.

The 4.3-liter, V-8 engine is quiet and offers enough low-end torque for brisk getaways as well as easy merging and passing maneuvers. The 5.7-liter V-8, on the other hand, delivers greater power without compromising too much of the fuel economy.

The traditional ride of the 1995 Chevrolet Caprice is a little too bouncy with the base suspension. The car tends to lean too much when turning and wallows a lot over wavy roads. The suspension used in the wagon is much firmer than that used in the sedan, so the wagon has a considerably better ride quality than the sedan.

Safety

The 1995 Chevrolet Caprice includes driver and passenger airbags. No NHTSA Crash test data is available on the 1995 Chevrolet Caprice.

EPA Fuel Economy

Chevrolet Caprice, 5.7-liter V-8, automatic transmission: 17/26 mpg city/highway
