Fresh-looking 1992 Cavalier models included this RS sedan.
A new fuel-injection system boosted the base 2.2-liter four to 110-horsepower (from 95), while the 3.1-liter V-6 that was standard in the Z24 and optional in RS convertibles and wagons remained at 140 horsepower. Both engines came standard with a five-speed manual, offering a three-speed automatic as an option.
New features on all Cavaliers included a shift interlock on automatic-equipped models that prevented the gearshift from going into Reverse or Drive unless the brake pedal was depressed, and an innovative power locking system that automatically locked all the doors when the transmission was shifted into Drive, or with manual transmission, when the car reached eight mph. VL and RS models also got new wheel covers.
Total sales slipped to about 225,000 for 1992, though that was enough for a third-place finish behind the Ford Taurus and Honda Accord.
