Chevrolet Lumina


1993 Chevrolet Lumina

1993 Chevrolet Lumina Euro 3.4-liter
Lumina's value-driven nature was unchanged for 1993,
and sales were good.

The 1993 Chevrolet Lumina featured automatic door locks for all models. Doors would lock when the automatic transmission was shifted out of Park; on manual-transmission cars, the doors would lock when the car reached eight mph.

Chevrolet also shuffled some engine choices for 1993. Lumina coupes again came in base, Euro, and Z34 trim, but the 140-horsepower 3.1-liter V-6 was now standard not only in the Euro, but also in the base coupe, which formerly came with a four-cylinder engine.

The Z34 returned with its twin-cam 3.4-liter V-6 producing 210 horsepower with the standard five-speed manual transmission, or 200 with the four-speed automatic.

Sedans were offered in base, Euro, and Euro 3.4 guise. Base sedans again came standard with a four-cylinder engine, but it was now the 110-
horsepower 2.2-liter four from the Cavalier rather than the 105-horsepower 2.5-liter four used previously.

Euro sedans came standard with the 140-horsepower 3.1-liter V-6, which was optional on the base model. Euro 3.4s came only with the 200-horsepower version of the twin-cam 3.4-liter V-6, since a four-speed automatic was standard.

Only the four cylinder and 3.1-liter V-6 came with a three-speed automatic, and only the Z34 coupe could have a five-speed manual. Both V-6s could also be fitted with a four-speed automatic.

filter out bumps in the road.
