The Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera was a mid-size car produced from 1982 through 1996 at the Oklahoma City plant, the Saint Therese Assembly plant (until 1991) Framingham, Massachusetts and Doraville, Georgia plant for the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. It shared the front-wheel drive GM A platform, which was based on the earlier X platform, with the very similar Buick Century, Pontiac 6000 and Chevrolet Celebrity, during those years. Available bodystyles included a 2-door coupe, 4-door sedan, and the Cutlass Cruiser station wagon (added in 1984). During the 1986 model year, the coupe received a new, more rounded roofline that was not shared with the other A-body models. At the same time as the Cutlass Ciera, Oldsmobile produced two other different Cutlass models, the smaller Cutlass Calais and the larger Cutlass Supreme. The Cutlass Ciera was a modern redesign of Oldsmobile's famous Cutlass line. Sales were strong and the car enjoyed many factory specialty models including Holiday coupe, GT, International and Eurosport models, the latter of which had a stock body kit. For 1996, the Cutlass name was dropped and the car was simply called the Ciera.

1989

The Cutlass Ciera was updated for 1989, with the sedan receiving a new more modern roofline, and both coupe and sedan models wore updated rear-end treatments (the 1989/1990 taillights were Oldsmobile-themed - squared with a center emblem, and 1991 to 1996 models had a revised three-sectioned taillight lens similar to the Ford Mustang). For 1992, the coupe, along with the sporty International Series models, were dropped. In 1996, the final model year, the cars dropped the Cutlass name and were known simply as Ciera. The Ciera was popular with rental fleets. Production of the Ciera ended on August 30, 1996, and it was replaced in the U.S. by the 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass, also built at the Oklahoma plant. This Cutlass was not sold in Canada, leaving the new Intrigue as Oldsmobile's only mid-size offering there.
