2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette Première AWD.jpg

Oldsmobile Silhouette. 1997–2004 (prod. n/a). 4-door MPV, 5-door LWB MPV. F/F, F/A, 3350 cm³ (V6 OHV). Oldsmobile’s version of the U-body minivans, departing from the avant-garde look of the first generation. As before, Silhouette proved to be the plushest of the GM minivans, with decent levels of standard equipment, though there was still plenty of plastic used in the cabin, with questionable build quality inside. V6 gave good performance, developing 180 hp. Dual airbags and ABS standard. Rear seating left a bit to be desired, and there were question marks over safety after an NBC exposé on offset crash protection. SWB (which had no left-side rear door) deleted after 1999, AWD option from 2002. Not directly replaced as GM wound up the Oldsmobile brand.
