Vauxhall Frontera Overview

The Vauxhall Frontera is classed as a mid-sized SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) and was produced by the British manufacturing company Vauxhall Motors. The Frontera was the British version of the Isuzu Wizard and was also known under many other names across the different markets including: Isuzu Frontier and Chevrolet Frontera. This vehicle was available in both front long and short wheel base versions. These are good off road vehicles but are not very good on road, unreliable and not as accomplished as others in this class. Does this sound like your Frontera?

Vauxhall Frontera History

The first generation (1989-98) was introduced in 1989 and was built at the Bedford factory in Luton along with the commercial vehicles. The Opel version was also built here. In 1995 the Frontera had a makeover which meant a new engine range, suspension improvements and new trim levels.

The second generation (1998-2004) Vauxhall Frontera again had a new engine range as General Motors took over the Bedford factory. This vehicle ceased production in 2004 as it was seen as unreliable and not as good as class rivals which made it unpopular amongst the general public.

The most economical of the engine range was the 2.2 diesel which offered up to 32mpg, which isn’t great, but again not to bad for a vehicle of this type.
