Historic Background:The Cavalier was restyled in 1988. The two door hatchback was dropped, while the coupe, sedan, wagon and convertible carried over. The sedan and wagon were unchanged from the doors back, while the coupe's exterior was completely redesigned. This resulted in different trunk designs for the coupe and sedan. Three trim levels were available in 1988: VL, RS, and Z24. The convertible was only available as a Z24. The VL and RS came standard with the2.0LOHVL4engine, now upgraded to throttle-body injection, or TBI, producing 90hp (67kW), while the2.8L V6producing 125hp (93kW) was optional on the RS and standard on the Z24.[1]With 2 door models, 5-speed manual transmission was standard, and a 3-speed automatic was optional, however the 3-speed automatic was made standard on sedans and wagons. Anelectronic dashboardwas available with the RS and Z24 trims. 1991–1995 Cavalier wagonIn 1989, thesteering columnwas redesigned. The new self-aligning steering wheel was designed so as to reduce injuries in a collision by bending to conform to the driver's chest. Also, rear shoulder belts became standard on all models. RS and Z24 custom cloth seating received a new style of front bucket seats with integral headrests. The optional V6 was retooled to 130hp.[2]

More background on the z-24:
For the 1987 model year, the 2.8-liter V6 engine and the 2.0 –liter four-cylinder engines were updated and newly offered with a new Getrag five-speed manual transmission. The V6's output was estimated at 125-130 HP, while the four now reached 90 HP. In this year the Z24 package was also made available on the convertible.
The 1988 model year brought with it new sheet metal, which was the most obvious update. The three-door hatchback was deleted from the lineup, leaving behind the sedan, the convertible and the two-door coupe. All of these received a slimmer, more contemporary-looking grille, and updated noses. The interior of the '88 model was also revised and fashioned to appear more modern-looking.
The following year the Cavalier was offered with a self-aligning steering wheel that featured an energy-absorbing hub. A total of 376,626 units were sold in the 1989 year.
