1995 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight

In 1991, Oldsmobile unveiled a restyled Ninety-Eight. As with its Buick Park Avenue counterpart, the new version was modified to ride on the same front-drive chassis as the 1985-90 vehicles but featured a rounder appearance and an extra 9.5 inches of length overall. Six-passenger 4-door sedans in either Regency Elite or Touring Sedan style were available during the Ninety Eights. The engine was a 3.8-liter V6 from General Motors. It was updated for the 1991 model year and had 170 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque. Driver-side airbags, antilock brakes, and automatic load-leveling suspension were standard on both versions. This article focuses on the 1995 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight


The 1995 OLDSMOBILE NINETY-EIGHT has 2 trim levels:

  • Regency Elite Series I
  • Regency Elite Series II

Performance and Fuel Economy

GM’s 3.8-liter V6 engine powers the Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight. It was updated for the 1991 model year, delivering 170 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque at 3200 rpm. The additional horsepower was added in 1995 when General Motors‘ corporate V6 engine was upgraded to a 205 horsepower Series II 3800. At 3200 rpm, the torque is rated at 230 pound-feet. Supercharged engines were available between 1992 and 1995, with outputs of up to 220 horsepower and 265 pounds-feet of torque, respectively. However, the supercharged engine was eliminated for the 1996 model year in favor of the new Aurora, Oldsmobile’s flagship vehicle. A 4-speed overdrive automatic gearbox is standard on all engines.


The 1995 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight is a great option for individuals who still enjoy Oldsmobile’s conservative attitude. The 3.8-liter V6 from General Motors is available with either a normally aspirated or a supercharged engine and comes standard with twin airbags (after 1994), antilock brakes, and plenty of passenger space. It also provides great acceleration. Despite the automatic transmission’s rapid downshifts, the engines give fast starts and plenty of passing power. Expect about 25mpg on the highway.

Passenger and Trunk Storage

As long as everyone is willing to squeeze in, the 1995 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight provides enough head and leg space for all six individuals. With its level, broad floor, and ample trunk capacity (nearly 20 cubic feet), this vehicle can easily accommodate multiple baggage items. The knobs and gauges on the instrument panel are big and well-defined, making them simple to see and operate. There are substantial rear pillars that impede the driver’s over-the-shoulder perspective when parking, making it difficult to see all four corners of the vehicle.

Body Design

The Oldsmobile Ninety Eight’s last version, released in 1991 to commemorate the car’s 50th birthday, had a longer body, wider rear fenders, a lower front, and a split grille with wraparound headlights. Overall length rose by approximately nine inches despite a mostly unaltered wheelbase compared to the previous model (229 mm). As a consequence, the trunk became a lot bigger as a result of this additional capacity.


For the last generation of the Ninety-Eight, two main trim levels were available: the Regency and the Touring. The 3.8 L V6 was available in two powertrain configurations: naturally aspirated in all years and turbocharged from 1992 to 1995. In 1991, Oldsmobile released a “50th Anniversary” package to honor the 50th anniversary of the Ninety-Eight. Gold nameplate badging and distinctive gold accent alloy wheels that adorned this one-of-a-kind vehicle are only offered in two colors: black or white. Burl walnut is used to trim the inside, and gold accents were added.

Regency Elite Series

As a result, Oldsmobile further streamlined the Ninety-Eight selection in 1995 by providing just two tiers of Regency Elites (Series I and Series II). Standard features on each vehicle are impressive, and the list of available choices and upgrades was kept to a bare minimum. To further enhance performance and economy, the 3.8 L V6 engine came standard in these vehicles and was redesigned in 2009. In 1996, there were few changes in the last year of the Ninety Eight. The most significant change was eliminating the option for a turbocharged engine. On the LSS model, though, that engine was still available.
