Year-to-year changes

1991

The Geo Tracker was positioned at the entry-level end of the sport/utility market and was designed for young first-time buyers who prized driving fun, sporty appearance and fuel economy. Key competitors included the Jeep Wrangler, Isuzu Amigo and the Tracker's second cousin, the nearly identical Suzuki Sidekick.

The Geo Tracker came in one shape only, a 2-door, but in three flavors: a 2-wheel-drive convertible, a 4-wheel-drive convertible and a 4-wheel-drive hardtop. The two trim levels were base (2wd and 4wd) and LSi (available with 4wd only).

The one and only engine for 2wd models remained the 80-horsepower 1.6-liter sohc inline 4-cylinder. The standard transmission was a 5-speed manual. A 3-speed automatic with a new brake-transmission safety interlock was optional.

Four-wheel-drive models featured a 2-speed manual-shift transfer case and automatic locking hubs for shift-on-the-fly operation.

1995

The Tracker saw a number of small but significant improvements for 1995. On the outside, convertible models had a new easy-opening top (the front half was used to fold back like a sunroof, or the entire top was used to stow for open-air driving). Hardtop models now came with standard rear washer/wipers. In addition, two new exterior colors were available.

Inside, new dual cup holders have been added to the standard console. Under the hood, the 95-horsepower 16-valve version of the 1.6-liter sohc 4-cylinder engine was now standard on all 4-wheel-drive models.

1996

All of the 80-horsepower engines were replaced by not only all 95 hp engines, but also a brand-new 4-door SUV, available as a 2-wheel-drive or 4-wheel-drive, and also as base and LSi models.

After 1997, all of Geo's cars were renamed as Chevrolet vehicles.
