About Chevrolet Beretta
Chevrolet Beretta is a rare front-wheel drive coupé manufactured by General Motors' brand Chevrolet from 1987 to 1996. The first Chevrolet Beretta was introduced in 1987 to replace the Chevrolet Citation coupe and Chevrolet Celebrity coupe. It shared the same design studio with the Chevrolet Camaro and the Chevrolet Corvette. Though Chevrolet Beretta had been produced only for nine years, it had won the Trans Am Series championship for its 4.5 L 90 degree V6 engine in 1990.
Chevrolet Beretta was available in seven trim levels: Base, CL, GT, GTU, Indy, GTZ, and Z26. As a 2-door coupé with so many models, it had many engine options. Available engines included 2.0 L LL8, 2.2 L LM3, 2.2 L LN2 and 2.3 L LG0 inline 4-cylinder gasoline engines as well as 2.8 L LB6, 3.1 L LH0, and 3.1 L L82 V6 gasoline engines. And all these engines were fitted along with a 3-speed 3T40, a 4-speed 4T60-E automatic transmission and a 5-speed Getrag 282 manual transmission. When the last Chevrolet Beretta rolled off the assembly line on July 30, 1996, the Chevrolet Malibu replaced it immediately for the next model year.
