The 1995 Chevrolet Caprice got, influenced by the Impala SS that debuted during the 1994 model year, adopted "dog leg" rear roof pillars. It also gained some Special Value models that made the previous year's California-only value-priced models a nationwide commodity.

Otherwise, Chevy's big rear-drive full-frame sedans and wagons carried on with only minor changes, most of them to the interior. Seats were reshaped, and new premium cassette and CD players offered speed-compensated volume control, which automatically increased radio volume to compensate for increased ambient noise levels.

Two Caprice body styles were again offered, a sedan seating six, and a wagon that could accommodate up to eight with its standard rear-facing third bench seat.

Sedans came in a single Classic trim level, but there were a total of four versions after counting the base model and three Special Value editions. The wagon came only in base and one Special Value variant.

Standard on both the sedan and wagon was again a 200-horsepower 4.3-liter V-8, with the 260-horsepower LT1 5.7-liter V-8 optional. Both engines came only with a four-speed automatic transmission.
