    Chevrolet Kingswood (2nd Gen) 1969-1972

    From 1969 to 1972, the Kingswood was based on the Impala, and was available only with a V8. It was considered a little more deluxe than the Chevrolet Townsman and Chevrolet Brookwood, but lacked the exterior woodgrain paneling of the top-line Kingswood Estate. Throughout this period, the Kingswood was available in both two- and three-seat models; in 1969 and 1970, a power rear window was standard equipment for the latter, optional for the former. In 1971 and 1972, the power rear window was standard for both models.

    Midway through the 1971 model year, the Turbo-Hydramatic transmission was added to the standard equipment list, eliminating the outdated three-speed manual transmission. Turbo-Hydramatic had been ordered on virtually every Kingswood built during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

    For 1973, Chevrolet eliminated the Kingswood Estate/Kingswood, and their sister nameplates Townsman and Brookwood designations for its full-sized station wagons. With the Bel Air, Impala, and Caprice nameplates again becoming dominant on station wagon models. The Bel Air nameplate would drop out in 1975, and the Impala Sedan/Wagon nameplate would continue until it was dropped after the 1985 model year(With the name returning only in Sedan Form in 1994).
