1980 Oldsmobile Toronado.jpg

Oldsmobile Toronado. 1979–85 (prod. n/a). 2-door coupé. F/F, 4126 cm³ (V6 OHV), 5033, 5737 cm³ petrol, 5737 cm³ diesel (V8 OHV). Downsized at last with positive effects on handling, ride and performance; still related to Cadillac Eldorado (1979–85) and Buick Riviera (1979–85). Still body-on-frame. Independent rear suspension developed by Cadillac. The Toronado’s weak point was its V8 diesel, which proved notoriously unreliable.
