2001 Oldsmobile Aurora Road Test
Available now as a 2001 model, Oldsmobile has redesigned its flagship Aurora model. A new size, price and engine strategy moves the car from the prestige luxury market, to entry luxury. Now available with the option of a 215 horsepower 3.5-liter twin-cam V6, rather than only a V8, Oldsmobile has a viable contender in the entry luxury market. The V8 is situated on the economic side of the prestige luxury market, making it a competitive alternative to a similarly equipped car from Europe or Japan. "Today's luxury car buyers want choices - not everyone is looking for V-8 power," said John Gatt, Brand Manager, Aurora.
