1991, 1992 Chevrolet Corsica

Upgrades were few for the 1991 Corsica
after a year of weak sales.

The 1991 Chevrolet Corsica received a driver-side air bag and restyled dash for 1991 but also lost its sporty LTZ variant. That left the LT as the only trim level, again offered as a four-door sedan or five-door hatchback.

To offset the loss of the LTZ, a Z52 performance package that included a Level III sport suspension, 205/60R-15 tires on alloy wheels, and sport steering wheel was added as an option for both body styles.

Standard engine was again a 95-horsepower 2.2-liter four, with a 140-horsepower 3.1-liter V-6 optional. On either engine, a five-speed manual transmission was standard and a three-speed automatic was optional.

For 1992, Chevy's compact Corsica gained anti-lock brakes as standard equipment, but it lost its slow-selling hatchback variant. That left the lone four-door sedan in but one LT trim level, though the Z52 Sport Handling Package was still available to spruce it up.

The base 2.2-liter four gained 15 horsepower, now 110, while the optional 3.1-liter V-6 still made 140 horsepower. The V-6 now came only with automatic, and got a more fuel-efficient 2.53:1 axle ratio to replace a 2.84.

Prices were up almost $900 from a year earlier, but that included the new anti-lock brakes. One could still get a well-equipped Corsica with driver-side air bag, ABS, V-6, automatic, air conditioning, power windows and locks, and other amenities, for about $14,000.
