Did you know that Opel respectively GM is one of the first companies, the recognized the incipient trend towards the SUV and responded to it? It's the GM daughter Isuzu on whose both pickup-models based the Frontera. These are made entirely conventional: ladder frames with on them supporting double wishbones front and rear rigid axles. However, there are two versions, a longer four-door station wagon with each upward and downward opening hatchback and a two-door, in which the rear-seat passengers almost exclusively are surrounded from the hood with plastic windows, optional hardtop.

Of customs reasons, the production of this car intended mainly for Europe is given to Britain. At that time, however, Opel Germany has the say and therefore are also the changes in appearance: another front and only hardtop at the two-door. An older 2.4-liter gasoline engine and the newer two-liter replace the former Japanese jackings. To the honest turbo diesel, of course, not as a direct-injection, first at the A2 from 1995. Together with five gears in the terrain arises the opportunity, first to switch the all-wheel drive and then in addition the underdrive without stopping.

Did you know that Opel for this early reaction to the trend and the relatively affordable basic sales price will be rewarded in the beginning with a first place in one of Germany's registration statistics in this vehicle category? Unfortunately, thespare parts prices rather Japanese origin. Even today, € 650 for a fuel pump module are still a lot of money. There are difficulties with cables, respectively electronics and the processing of the body. Because the power plants lose fluids of several species, the build contains those in the interior. Together with the affordable basic price will give for technically talented a view to favorable prices for used cars. 04/11               Top of page               Index
