Oldsmobile Alero details:
The layout of the Oldsmobile Alero was originally previewed in 1997 with the Oldsmobile Alero Alpha concept vehicle, a fantastic V6-powered sport coupe that featured many layout components seen in the production Oldsmobile Alero as well as some that were never meant for production.
The Oldsmobile Alero was sold either as a 4-door sedan or as a 2-door coupé. It shared its chassis and many parts, including engines, with the Pontiac Grand Am. It was part of the GM N platform.
The Oldsmobile Alero was also sold in select European countries as the Chevrolet Oldsmobile Alero, although only available as a sedan. The vehicle still featured its Oldsmobile badges even though sold under the Chevrolet make, since most European buyers would not recognize what the badge stood for. Chevrolet badges were added to the grille and back fascia during the 2000 model year. The Toronado was sold similarly.
