    Oldsmobile Bravada (1st gen) 1990-1994

    The Oldsmobile Bravada is a front-engine, four-door mid-size SUV manufactured and marketed by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors — across three generations and as a rebadged variant of the Chevrolet Blazer and GMC Jimmy. It was the only SUV manufactured or marketed by Oldsmobile, and the first light truck offered in the United States by a GM brand other than Chevrolet or GMC since before World War II. The first generation (1991–1994) and second-generation (1996–2001) used the GMT330 platform, and the third generation (2002-2004) used the GMT360 platform. The third generation was the only version offered in Canada.

    First generation 1990-1994
    The 1991 Bravada was an upscale version of the then-new 4-door S-Blazer/Jimmy. It was the first truck-based vehicle offered by Oldsmobile since the 1920s, and at that time was a United States-only vehicle. Unlike its siblings, the Bravada was only offered with "Smart Trak" all-wheel drive, power equipment, body-colored bumpers and exterior trim (with lower body cladding which was body-colored, similar to the competitor Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited), and the 4.3 L W-code engine. At the heart of Smart Trak system was the Borg Warner 4472 transfer case (also shared with the limited production GMC Typhoon and AWD GM M platform vans [Astro/Safari]), offering 65% rear and 35% front torque with more to the front when it slips. Anti-lock brakes and remote keyless entry were also standard.

    The 4.3 L V6 engine got a horsepower boost to 200 for 1992. Also for '92, the Bravada's instrument panel was slightly modified to differ from its siblings. 1993 saw the addition of an overhead console with compass, temperature, and reading lights. An optional Gold package with gold exterior badging and special gold aluminum wheels was also new for '93. This version was produced through 1994.

    1991 – 4.3 L LB4 V6, TBI, 160 hp (119 kW)/230 lb·ft (312 N·m) (VIN Z)
    1992–1994 – 4.3 L L35 Vortec 4300 V6, CPFI, 200 hp (149 kW) (VIN W)

    Fuel economy
    The first generation Bravada with the 160 hp engine averaged United States Environmental Protection Agency city/highway 17 miles per US gallon (14 L/100 km; 20 mpg‑imp)/22 miles per US gallon (11 L/100 km; 26 mpg‑imp). The second generation with the 200 hp engine averaged 16 miles per US gallon (15 L/100 km; 19 mpg‑imp)/21 miles per US gallon (11 L/100 km; 25 mpg‑imp).
